  • Probably because they want to see you happy and want grandkids. But I think it has more to do with the face that back in the day before you were even a thought, people were dating and getting married at 18-19 years old. So in their eyes... you should have been there already.

    • What if I don’t want to date what if I want to just stay single and advance myself

    • It’s because those people can’t imagine themselves ever being single and feel that others should be on the same page. Let them look down on you if they like. If you’re satisfied getting by in life the way you have been then do that. Do worry about what others think.

    • Yeah I actually rejected a girl who was flirting with me heavy when I was picking up my textbooks for the semester she even asked what I was doing this weekend and I ignored her

  • Your doing the right thing, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. I tell anyone, especially the younger crowd straight outta high school to stay single and focus on their goals and plans for their life. When the time is right the right person will come along. First get yourself together with a good paying job, a place of your own to live and money in the bank and then worry about a potential partner. All the people I know that just wanted to have fun and fool around haven’t really done a whole lot with their lives. They should have invested in themselves the way you and I have.

    • Yeah I was laying in the hospital with a severe infection in my leg and my brother came in and was like do you have a girlfriend yet or are you seeing a girl and It got super awkward because I already don’t feel comfortable talking about that stuff and it’s magnified in a hospital because there really isn’t much privacy when your room is a few feet from the nurses station

  • Your family will feel validated and more secure about you when they know you are in a valid relationship.
    It implies emotional maturity, a successful conclusion to their child rearing of you, and statistically men do better and are more balanced in a relationship. And babies.

  • They're your family. They probably want grandchildren like most loving parents. You're 26 and still single or rather you haven't mentioned seeing anyone so I'm sure they're just curious.

    • Ok but I have other priorities

    • Show All
    • If I never reach my goals I will never get a girlfriend and I will never start a family

    • I don't see anything wrong with that. Some people feel like they need someone in their lives, and others don't. You do what makes you happy.

  • It's their generation, a lot of people from their generation, assuming they are in their late 50s to late 60s, got married rather early by today's standards.

  • Because 1-2 generations ago, they often were already settling down with someone by the time they hit their 20s.

    • Your family probably knows that a relationship would help you find good balance

    • But I’m good though

  • Because 26 is getting a bit "up there" for the dating game. Your family is just hoping, not a big deal.

    • Ok and so if I never decide to date

    • I’m saying that so many people put value on having a girlfriend I value success

    • Good for you... Most people are interested in dating, so stop being so sensitive when people think you're weird for not being into women.
