I must be crazy to be in a loony bin like this.
Usually the people who play the "well I can bang whoever I want" since I'm not married usually don't have good relationships with people in general and are pretty lonely as they get older.
They probably were in multiple failed relationships because all they cared about was sex and not the actual person.
Kudos to you if that's the way you are, a 50 year old fat ass who talks about his days as a 26 year old.
Hey, I am only 25 and single. It's pretty great right now. But when I'm 30 I am sure I will want to settle down and find a loving partner to have kids with.
I would imagine it would suck huge balls to get older and not have kids/grandkids.
Sounds like you're fishing but if you think life is ONLY about banging fresh box you are a lot more immature than I figured. With a screen name like Steely Dan I figured you would be much wiser. Here's to every job promotion/income increase, good times with friends, new car and new house being underwelming because you can't bang fresh box anymore
If all they care about is sex, it's not a "failed relationship". It would actually be quite a successful one in their book.
So a hot chick broke your heart and you vowed to never get hurt again eh? So predictable...I feel bad for the lucky girl that you have to "settle for" cause all the good ones are long gone when finally grow up.
You're an only child right?
Here's "I'm going to win this argument because I think I know you better than you know yourself" guy.
Dude we're talking about 26 year olds here. I'm 25 and have had three long term relationships that all ended because of life circumstances outside of control (Job, School etc). I am enjoying single life to the maximum right now and would see no reasons to jump right into a serious LTR. Does that make me a huge loser to?
Because you got married young, don't act like people can't find good partners after 30. A lot of us aren't fat dudes who live in their mom's basement.

I like this thread because the word "bang" appears in it.
Right on OP, don't do it unless you find someone you can truly be yourself with. I think the problem with most marriages is that both parties are playing a role. When you start out you are okay with being who you think they want you to be, but eventually you realize that you are putting in a lot of effort just to maintain what's become expected and that part you are playing isn't really who you want to be or who you thought you were before you got married and any attempt to change that role you are playing feels like it is attacked as irresponsible or as if you are rebelling against the marriage and you can't tell her that you feel like the entire relationship is based on a lie because, hell, she'd certainly take that one the wrong way so you just become distant and try not to think about it and eventually she starts becoming "friends" with a guy that can give her the emotional support she's lacking from you and then you get mad and feel betrayed and it devolves more and you eventually leave her. Don't do that.
Post as if your wife was sitting on my lap.
Please re-read the thread, my discussion with Steely had nothing to do with marrying young. It was about thinking life is over because you can't bang strange anymore.
Side note I got married at 30, was/am 185lbs, can run miles around you and you have 15 years on me.
Wah Wah wooie Wow! You are so fast!
If you're straight up single and 26 years old, people are probably starting to think you're light in the loafers, not that there's anything wrong with that. In regards to marriage age, it depends a lot on what you do. In the business world, marriage is kind of a requirement, if you want to start climbing the corportate ladder at 26, you should get married post haste. If you are in grad school, law school, med school, then I would say marriage at or after 30 is more the norm these days.
i don't know... it's either this or bitches be crazy.
Don't really know the business world. I finish med school in one month, and am starting residency in July. You're first statement just sounds ignorant to me. Where do people think that way? Maybe I just don't meet them.
I would say in my field (as you noted) my male colleagues who are married either got pressured by a girlfriend before residency, or took the first girl that would speak to them.

And "fresh box."
some of my good friends maintain the strictly single life. I know they've been hooking up with girls on and off, but when they eventually get a serious girlfriend people with less inside knowledge start saying "Really? I don't remember him having a girlfriend before"
welcome to 2012, bro.
My single friends in the business world seem to be killing it compared to my married friends. They are able to easily travel and have much more time to dedicate to work. Maybe it's just selection bias.
I don't understand it either, but it seems to be pretty true to me. And lets not forget the military, marriage is a requirement if you want to go that route
No it's not the benefits are just a lot better.
totally agree. But it kind of renders this whole discussion pointless. The OP says "I'm 26 and not married". That's like saying "I'm 26 and like beer". I think it's true for most people that age.
Certainly most RCMBers. He could have also said "I'm 26 and have problems in social situations" or "I'm 26 and have never touched a boobie" or "I'm 26 and I live with 5 roommates and play COD every night".
I REMEMBER WHEN THIS WHOOOOOOOOOOLE PLACE USED TO BE ORANGE GROVES. ME AND YOUR UNCLE WOULD RUN DOWN TO MR. STEWARD'S APOTHECARY AND GET ROCK CANDY FOR A NICKEL.
I'm curious as to your relationship goals. Is it to stay single forever or to get married and have kids at some point?
At some point in life, meeting women becomes the like finding a QB for an NFL team. You canplay the free agent market for years and years, but really you're just getting castoffs and damaged goods. Sure, some guys jump the gun and sign JaMarcus Russell only to regret it three years later and for the rest of their lives. They're probably still paying for JaMarcus Russell. You can hold out forever, not wanting to pay the big contracts in the early rounds, thinking you're gonna find Tom Brady in the 7th. But 99.5% percent of the time you wind up choosing between Reggie McNeil or James Kilian...never heard of them? It's because they suck. Free Agency is always fun, there's tons of new arms to choose from and you can always sign them to a really short-term contract, but if you're not careful you become the Miami Dolphins stuck with a stable of Matt Moore, Chad Henne, and David Garrard. Some people strike it 'rich' with a #1 pick and some people will languish with Dante Culpepper for years, and some may say fuck it and roll with a Wildcat Offense.
The key is to be careful, evaluate talent, check out the talent pool, find your quarterback, get to know their background, wonderlick, and go after the one you want...and then roll with that quarterback until your last dying breathe like Spurrier's Redskins years and Danny Wuerffel.
