What changed after 30? Page 4 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
"Am I still open to love? Yes. But I will not feel like I failed in life if I never find it, and now I make the women work to get me as much as I used to work to get them. Luckily in my 30s, the mentality changes and the women I meet (who aren't messed up) are more thinking "long term" and "good man" as opposed to the bad boys, excitement, and other frivolity many spent their 20s pursuing."

But at that point, those types of women a're usually damaged goods due to being f'ed and chucked by so many bad boys. Why deal with that baggage?

Alot of you guys seem to feel coming of age at 30 means feeling more liberating and being able to speak your minds :P i can happily admit that I been that way since i can remember. Never saw the point to being pretentious anyways - you know wanting one thing but behaving as expected to. Ive always been a free spirit.

So all thats changed for me is finding it harder to mingle with teenagers cuz im always young at heart. Cuz when those years pile on, seems your body and looks begin to betray who you are deep inside - in my case an exuberant teenage guy in his prime.

My metabolism! Throughout my life, I was 90-100 lbs. Now I gained 20 lbs.

I don't have the energy I use to. I used to get out there with 2 dogs, a Shep mix and a pit/dobe mix. Friends say I should get my current dog a companion, but I say 2 dogs are too much for me.

I am wiser, yet I satnd up for what I believe. I use to be so quiet.

I'm still trying to figure it out :P

Actually to be honest there's a part of me that at this point wants to settle down, and there's definitely a maturity process to that. Mind you I'm glad I did just up and get married in my 20's, but it's now nearing the point where I want to.
