I've been dating mygf for 6 months, she's 29 and I'm 26, is it safe to assume that giver her age she really likes me? At that age wouldn't most women be afraid of wasting their time? Given that marriage kids etc takes time and she's getting up there, is this a normal way to look at it or am I just over analyzing this?
I'm her age! At this stage in my life, I am over the bullshit! But putting someone on a flat plate and saying this is the way they are because of their age, is a statement that can be very invalid. People are ready for things at different times!! Some 29 year olds are over the bullshits, others aren't. This comes down to the individual themselves, does she strike you as a woman that is going after what she wants, and is looking to settle down? I hear my biological clock ticking, and pertaining to myself, I'd say yes. But her answer, could be very different from mine!
i am the same age as your girlfriend. i don't want any kids and, until i met the guy i'm with now, i had no intention of ever being married. the only reason that changed is because he's very traditional and made it clear that marriage was important to him... and i love/trust him enough that the idea of being married to him doesn't scare me.
(if not for him, i'd be placing an order for my crazy cat-lady starter kit right about now. lol.)
have you talked to your girlfriend about any of this stuff? do you know how she feels about marriage and kids? if not, i would definitely suggest you find out, in order to make sure that you're on the same page.
You're a smart considerate guy from what I read. Age means a lot and the older you are the more you realize it. It's good of you to notice and think about her perspective. If she is still with you, she likely is thinking seriously about you two long term. Have a convo with her about it? Couples should be able to talk about their goals and future together.
