I was telling a few guys at work that I looked through some of my friends facebook and mosto of their lives are pretty boring. And that I don't want my life to be like that.
At first they all agreed but then one was like "wait a second, just last week you said you wanted to settle down. You can't make up your mind"
I did say that and I meant it. I DO really really want to settle down. As in meet a nice guy, get married, have a steady job but that doesn't my life has to be boring. We can still travel, volunteer, do cool stuff on the weekends like running a marathon, surfing, hiking, canoeing... we live in a great place for all of that
Why is that settling down means life is getting boring for so many people?

Because settling down usually involves having kids and once you have them, you live mostly for them, not for yourself.
Logistically, it's also harder to travel, volunteer, and do cool stuff on the weekends when you have kids. Unless you have a lot of help or involve them in your activities.2
