Enjoy yourself, enjoy your life, do the things you want to do, when you want to do it. Time won't stop for anyone, it's just a measurement of duration anyway. Go ahead, as usual.

I'm 32. Let me give you some advice, don't rush into anything ESPECIALLY relationships. I've known my wife for almost 7 years now but just got married last year. I don't think a year with someone (and this is my experience, will not apply to everyone) is enough to truly get to know someone. You gotta get to know them through good times and bad times and see them when they're sick and when they first wake up in the morning. And unconventional clothing? Just dress appropriately for the situation, but at home go nuts.
If i was your age again I'd turn down less invitations to do fun things with friends and take advantage of opportunities that come my way. I find that now as I get older it's harder for me to make friends because I'm at the awkward stage where I'm too young to hang with the older crowd but too old to hang out with people in their 20s.

Any older members chime in on your own experiences :)

^thanks for advice. I feel that I want what I don't have but maybe that's just life. I think it's no problem to hang out with the younger crowd when you are 32 - in my last job I became good friends with the guy I worked with who was 40 years old

You speak 100% truth. I'm 29, my wife and I got married two years ago after having known each other for close to eight years. Stuff like that shouldn't be rushed.

It feels like everyone around us is having kids, and we're coming to the realization that it's 90% likely that we won't ever want kids. It can be hard to feel justified in this when family/friends are constantly asking us when we plan on them.

Bottom line, don't feel obligated to live up to some arbitrary milestones based on how old you are. This is how people end up living lives they really don't want, and become extremely unhappy.

Recognize what you really like and what makes you happy, and stick to it. Half of the battle right there :)

You're never too old to do the things you enjoy doing. I just turned 40 in April and had been in an eleven year relationship. Things didn't work out for me in the end, but anime has helped fill some of that void afterwards. I watch it more now than I did during my younger years.
