Should I go on this date?

    • Thread Starter
    #1

    Started talking to this guy a few days ago and he's asked me out, but I'm not sure if I want to date him. I'm not even sure if I'm ready for a relationship, but I am at the age where I need to start thinking about settling down. He's good looking, but I wouldn't say he's my type. I'm also expected to settle down with someone from a wealthy family, which his family isn't. Although, he went to a moderately good university, and did really well in his degree and now has a good job. He's actually a lot more intelligent than I am. I don't know if I'd be wasting my time though. Part of me wants to go for the experience and I could end up liking him, but the other part just wants to hold back.

    What should I do?

    How old are you?

    Plus, you don't need to 'think about settling down' at any age-life is what you want it to be.

    You're not. 25 is nothing anyway. Don't do something, you don't want to do, because of some retarded social expectation.

    Out of interest which culture are you from? It's a very dated perspective to settle into a family of wealth, millennials are a generation with many opportunities - maybe the expectation should be that you are aligned in ambition and work ethic towards a prosperous future together??
