    I'm on a gap year which is sort of similar I guess. Travelled a bit and now working. I get wrecked with my mate down here and his associates. I just suggest you keep in good contact with your mates!

    Get a job, meet people at work, buy a house, get a woman, go to the local and meet people there, some older some younger, make friends through work. Basically, its like being a student only there's less work to do but it takes up more of your time, and you have more money.
    I cant actually imagine going to a pub and just speaking to random people, nevermind actually liking them. Work? All the places Ive worked are full of old people maybe a few young, but like, going from uni where there is 10000 people your age, to work which has 5, is a big difference

    Help! This is just 12 months away for me! I really really don't want to become old just yet! :confused:

    I want to stay a student for ever. I know I am going back to a different university no matter what, although do a masters but I will need to work for a few years first.

    Argh but you can't get loans after your undergraduate degree. You have to take out career development loans from the bank and if you don't pay them back you wil get a lot of bad credit history.

    So you have to effectivly work to pay for a masters. Unless you are lucky enough to either

    1) be a genius and get funding from a good insitution
    2) Be slightly above average and get funding from a poor insitution
    3) Do research in somthing a company is interested in and get them to pay up.

    Oh right, so, was your sexlife better at uni or once you graduated? (Exclude meeting your 'woman'! though)?

    Obviously my sex life went rapidly downhill after I met her, but before that it was miles better than at uni. When you're young, loaded, and have nothing better to spend your money on than drinks for young birds you simply cannot fail to pull. It took six men to put the women under me in my hayday
    Amazing, this fills me with hope.

    Why do you need to hang around with people all exactly the same age as you?
    before uni i would only hang about with people my own age, because when your younger a year is a big difference, when i started my degree i noticed that most people on my course were about 21 and in that first week really suprised me that 18 year olds are no different to 21 year olds

    its sounds real stupid now, but when you are 13, a 16 year old seems so much older, but the age difference is nothing now

    Have you ever checked out any of those sites? There are some proper munters, but some fit ones too! I wonder how many of them actually look like their picture.

    There was also a site where you could get in touch with birds in prison and meet up when they got out, quite comical especially as most of them were complete beasts. Can't remember the address but it wasn't babesbehindbars as that's a porn site which I found out to my chagrin when I tried it at work.
    lol i've heard about those sites but I haven't visited them i might end up buying one!

    there was a bloke of about 60 who used to walk around sainsburys (when i worked there) with a 20 odd year old chinese girl i think she might've been an internet bride obviously i have no proof though

    full marks for using chagrin!

    Age difference matters more if it's the wrong way. That is, you will very rarely see a fresher lad going out with a 3rd year girl, but the reverse happens plenty.
    Maybe its the fact girls grow past laughing at someone vomming their guts up quickly. Maybe us older lads seem more suave and...worldly.
    Maybe I'm just talking out my ass.

    Incidently, worse than 'after uni' is if all your friends are finishing, but you still have time to go. Whilst they are hunting for houses to rent in london (Friends stylee) you are looking at fricking halls.

    sometimes it hard to tell the difference between some first years and some third years
