    You really don't. Better get on it, find a woman and have those kids now. The more years you share with them, the better.
    Most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.

    Smart girl. I would be content to have been 21 forever, but the only cure is having children of your own... then your blood will remain young in them.

    Thanks, I didn't know that! How's the situation about men in Norway? Is it true that are more men in Norway than women and there's 'lack of women' for all those men?

    In Norway, there are 12,000 more men than women. Source
    I'm not sure how true that is... There are many lesbians and many homosexuals too in Norway, I think that should be counted...

    @Huginn ok Muninn: I wish I was 21 forever too, and I think the 20's is the best age, biologically speaking, for a woman to have kids... Early 30's is still a good age, but after that... However, for that you need a partner too... If I'm ever going to have kids, I want them to have a proper family with me.

    Oh, get over the glorious twenties nonsense, people. Life doesn't begin at twenty, and it certainly doesn't end at thirty.

    One of the financially well-established 'married' (key word) couples who sometimes attends our social functions just recently became parents to a healthy son. He was forty and she was in her mid-thirties when they decided to procreate.

    Just remember, regardless of your age, not to concentrate so much on procreating that you impatiently put the cart before the horse.

    I remember dating a woman in my early twenties who, I discovered, just wanted to 'breed' with me, even though I was not even prepared to get married at that time. So I stopped seeing her.

    Just because you never reproduce doesn't make you a failure, anymore than remaining unattached does. Marriage and having children are two things we can't just make happen without risking unpleasant consequences due to wishful thinking.
    “A dying culture invariably exhibits personal rudeness. Bad manners. Lack of consideration for others in minor matters. A loss of politeness, of gentle manners, is more significant than is a riot.” Robert A. Heinlein

    I turned 30 last month and it feels strange and I don't really like it. I want to stay in my 20's forever.

    I already feel that I no longer have as much energy and vitality as I had when I was like 18 or 19 or even 25.

    However, I try to accept it nevertheless. It's a normal part of life after all. And maybe I will be really happy when I'm 65 and sit in my garden surrounded by many happy grandchildren playing around me.

    Stages:

    life is a set of stages - infancy, childhood, adolescence, teenager, young adult, adult, worker, parent, middle age, grandparent, retirement, old age . . . At every stage you have a different set of priorities .


    Maybe a relevant quote here -



    23 of Jean-Paul Sartre’s Most Famous Quotes:


    1.”Life has no meaning the moment you lose the illusion of being eternal.”

    2.”We must act out passion before we can feel it.”

    3.”Nothingness haunts being.”

    4.”Three o’clock is always too late or too early for anything you want to do.”

    5.”God is absence. God is the solitude of man.”

    6.”Words are loaded pistols.”

    7.”Life begins on the other side of despair.”

    8. Unlike the man of sixty the man of twenty never thinks of dying.

    9.”Man is not the sum of what he has already, but rather the sum of what he does not yet have, of what he could have.”

    10.”Hell is other people.”

    11.”Like all dreamers, I mistook disenchantment for truth.”

    12.”One always dies too soon — or too late. And yet, life is there, finished: the line is drawn, and it must all be added up. You are nothing other than your life.”

    13.”It is certain that we cannot escape anguish, for we are anguish.”

    14.”Nothingness lies coiled at the heart of being like a worm.”

    15.”We do not know what we want and yet we are responsible for what we are — that is the fact.”

    16.”As far as men go, it is not what they are that interests me, but what they can become.”

    17.”I know only one Church: it is the society of men.”

    18.”I am no longer sure of anything. If I satiate my desires, I sin but I deliver myself from them; if I refuse to satisfy them, they infect the whole soul.”

    19.”Everything has been figured out, except how to live.”

    20.”Anything, anything would be better than this agony of mind, this creeping pain that gnaws and fumbles and caresses one and never hurts quite enough.”

    21.”Time is too large, it can’t be filled up. Everything you plunge into it is stretched and disintegrates.”

    22.”I will not be modest. Humble, as much as you like, but not modest. Modesty is the virtue of the lukewarm.”

    23.”If a victory is told in detail, one can no longer distinguish it from a defeat.”

    A jew and a marxist too, of course.


    I like this quote he made about Paris in WW II:

    "We were never more free than under the German occupation!" - Jean-Paul Sartre.

    I had to study Sartre in college. I never cared for his views. He was just another philosopher with distorted views of life. He was an atheist. He was a socialist and a communist supporting the french communist party. He did not know how to distinguish National Socialism from communism. To me he was a lost soul looking for something he never found.

    It's complicated. Bad news first, I fear that point of aging where women often become invisible even though I'm not there yet. How people judge your attractiveness does unfortunately affect how many of them treat you in even the most mundane, everyday situations. I'm also afraid of the russian roulette game of painful or degenerative illness that you don't really think about until your 30s unless you've been exceptionally unlucky. Beyond that though, the thing that scares me the most and has been probably the most motivational is the prospect of not having reached my potential.

    The good news is your capacity to tolerate BS from other people plummets (and hopefully your will to manufacture it) and empathy goes way, way up (at least until you're elderly). The world is a deeply unfair place and humanity is much more fragile than you have the capacity to realize when you're very young, it's startling but also good for your soul to start looking behind the surface and beyond yourself. The smaller things have taken on more meaning, as well as foundations that were taken for granted before or simply not noticed at all. The older I get, the more I fully understand that the only thing that really matters is virtue, that everything else can and will be taken away with time. It's one thing to understand that on a removed, intellectual level but education is quite different from experience.

    All in all, I think I'm moving toward an ideal of eugeria more than sorrowful old age, I think that's a better game plan.
