I´m 24 years old now, I work to pay college and I´m about to graduate with a degree in history because I want to teach in schools or in another college. However, since I was a baby, my biggest dream and desire was to be a housewife and have children. I want to wait for someone with food on the table, I want to make a nice home for the man I love, I want to prepare a Christmas tree with children laughing around, I want to bake cookies lol, I don´t know, I guess I´m very traditional or old fashioned.
I do want to work as a history teacher, but my main dream and goal in this life is to have a family, make my husband happy and raise cute, bubbly, innocent, adorably smart little babies.
I feel kind of guilty about wanting this though. I feel as if I don´t belong in this era we live in. I feel I should want something else out of life and I also feel I should be doing something else other than studying and dreaming about a family. I feel like I should be sleeping with different men and being independent and just the opposite of what I am.
I also think that guys find this a huge turn off because it seems like no one wants to settle down and have a family nowadays.
Should I change and try to dream about something else? but what is there apart from having a family? I don´t know, I´m very confused. I talk to my friends who are my age and none of them want to get married, they don´t want to be in committed relationships, they don´t want children and they say they hate romance and old fashioned things like that. And I feel so bad when I listen to them because I do want romance and old fashioned things...

Personally, I find you a breath of fresh air. Indeed, were I single now, I'd ask you to marry me ;)
Your friends have their own dreams and aspirations, and that's alright. If they aren't making you feel bad about it, there's really no problem. You are merely different, different can be good, in my case, your difference is very good. Admittedly guys out there who want that are also becoming increasingly rare. But they are out there.
Anyway, hold on to your dreams, they are yours and no one can take them from you, only you can let them die. Good luck I hope you find a worthy man who appreciates your dreams.3
