    You miss the point entirely.

    There is a correct answer to the question "Will the sun rise tomorrow?", but that doesn't mena we can be sure, right now, in the present, of the correct answer. I will say to the person who asks me that that I "think" it will.

    However to the question "should a government increases spending and decrease taxes?" there is no objective answer until the question is further specified. In some scenarios the answer is yes, some no.

    Your question is like the latter. You must specify further before it can be answered in any meaningful way. Although I suppose the meaningful way would be to work out the average age in which it would be optimal for a person to settle. How the hell are we going to do that accurately though?

    :confused: I didn't think the question was so hard to answer, obviously we all know that there is no single best age to meet someone and settle down, don't think the OP was after a definitive answer just people's opinion.

    No need to be so pedantic.

    Haha seriously I was just after opinions on what people thought would be the right age (for themselves). It would be good to see different answers and stuff.. personally I ask because Im 23 and single and starting to feel nervous that I havent met anyone yet..

    And this is precisely why I won't be "settling down" for many many years yet.

    I'm not sure that's for the best though.

    Obviously, it is different from everyone.
    I think personally ideal would be about 25. But life rarely goes to plan and goes along with your ideals. Before I met my boyfriend, I was very content with being single and imagined I would be single and not tied down seriously to anything for most of my 20s. The thing is, my boyfriend is 10 years older than I am. We kind of share the same ideals but there are some things that I will have to compromise on because he's older, and I don't want him have to wait another ten years until I'm ready. I didn't think I would be having children until I was 30, but already got pregnant 10 years before that ideal.

    Thing I learnt, life doesn't care about your plans. Doesn't care about what age you want to be when you want to experience certain things. Life will throw it at you anyway and you'll have to deal with it.

    About 28 onwards i'd say, maybe 25 onwards if you have a mature head on your shoulders.

    My brain can't form an opinion on such things, my thought is there is no "best age", just when you wanna settle down wid somebody then you go do it, age doesn't really factor in, it feels like 2 completely unrelated things to me.
