    Is this normal? I've realised most of my friends seem to always think about relationships. I'm male. It's never bothered me much until I discovered my friends thought like this. They're also thinking about what age to have kids and get there own place and so on.

    I don't really think about any of this stuff, except for the chance of owning my own place which I've wanted from a young age. It's not maturity, because there's only a few in my friend group who are more mature than me and they don't seem to be like the others - in the way they act or think.

    Whereas I've mostly been concerned with just pursing things that interest me. So is it weird that my primary focus isn't having a relationship? I'm 20.

    Same here, but I'm younger than you and I'm a girl. I just don't understand the hype about marriage, partners, and that sort of thing in general but sometimes I just try to put some effort into caring about these issues if a friend is upset.
    If anyone asks me, I tend to say that I just don't care about those things.
