He is 32. He has not gained weight since the wedding day. He's had a good fitness regimen over the 10 years that I've known him. When I met him in 2011, he had already been in a relationship with the woman who is now his wife for a year. They met in college. His now wife has never been Miss Fitness. She was naturally thin due to good metabolism or not overeating. However, she never maintained a great gym/fitness regimen. In 2015, they had a small pool party with some closer friends a few weeks after moving into an apartment together. I noticed her quads/thighs were looking a little thunderous and not due to being muscular. Her physical decline was slow from 2011 - until the onset of the pandemic. In 2011, in her early 20s, I would have rated her a 7 (borderline cute/hot). In Summer 2021, I noticed that her midsection was looking noticeably rounder. It was definitely flabby and a spare type look.Interesting. I'm curious of a few things. How old is this friend of yours? Did he gain weight too? Did he sincerely want kids?
I think he sincerely wants kids. He put a ring on her for the purposes of having kids. He could have lived together with her for whatever the lifespan of the relationsip ends up being if he didn't want kids. She wants kids too.
They started playing house soon after moving in together. They got a dog within a couple of months of living together. Within the first year of living together is when he proposed marriage to her.
I think it is better to have kids earlier in life. As a man, if you have kids later in life, raising kids can get in the way of retirement plans. If you have kids in your 40s, it is likely that core parental responsibilities won't be done until your 60s. I perceive that it is ideal to have all of your kids be 18 by the time you turn 55 if you choose to have them.I can understand avoiding the beta bucks / playing house mentality in your 20s and 30s. I'm upper 40s and although in practice I think a kid would fukk up my life, in theory I like the idea. However my filtering is good and I mostly date younger, non-bytchy foreign women.
I'm of two minds, on the one hand doing street approaches at 50+ sounds dumb. On the other, it's hard to ever envision selling out my personal freedom. This isn't because I don't think I could pull - I can always pull. This is just where my mentality is lately.
I think the term outdoor approaching is better. Approaching women at a park or on a walking/hiking park when you are 50-55 sounds better than approaching on some street with moderate to heavy pedestrian traffic. It's a shame that the grocery store has been ruined by masks because grocery store approaching isn't much different at 60 than 30.
Good choice on younger, not biitchy foreign women. Younger becomes a relative term. A 50 year man with a 35 year old woman is getting a much younger woman. A 37 year old man with a 35 year old woman isn't impressive. In general, a 35 year old woman isn't a young woman but 35 is a good catch at 50. It's really tough to be 50-55 and pulling 24-28 year olds.
