So at the ripe old age of 27 I've found myself surrounded by people who are either getting engaged, buying houses or even starting families. These aren't people who left school at 16 and are on benefits, these are people who I was at uni with, people who I work with and intelligent friends. Part of me is jealous, I'm still living in a shared house like a student, I have about £100 in my savings and although I've been in a relationship for a couple of years the concept of living together seems much too "grown up" for me to be comfortable with it. However, in some ways I also feel a bit sorry for people who tie themselves down at a young age. Don't get me wrong, I've achieved a lot - I have 2 degrees for example - but sometimes I feel like a freak by being so reluctant to enter the adult world. Everyone seems so rushed to settle down - am I missing something?*
Anyone else feel the same? *
...or just paranoid?
