>>675766630 lies, i make plenty of money and still its up and downs liek anything else. imo get a girlfriend/best friend, find a job that makes good money that you ENJOY doing, and smoke weed everyday and it will far from suck.
>>675766465 25+ was okay for me. Got more confident, if anything. Still partied a lot, until I quit my job and decided to go back to school full time. Now I'm in my 30s. The overwhelming majority of my friends are either starting to settle down or (accidentally) had kids. Friend pool is dwindling and I'm finding that it's hard to make new ones. So, yeah? I find myself reverting back to my anti-social hobbies, like gaming, from when I was a teenager, but I'm on a path to something and not a complete loser.
Honestly man, I was a pretty bitter cynical motherfucker for most of my 20's because everyone older looked more and more miserable. And older adults fucking RELISH when their younger generation is put in situations that make them as miserable as the older ones.
>"Yeah, sucks being an adult and waking up at 4:30am and shoveling out your car to go to work doesn't it?"
They laugh in your face because they've been hauling their sorry asses out of bed for years and misery loves company.
I realized that life doesn't have to be miserable the older you get, no matter what anyone tells you.
>You should know yourself better by now.
That means you start not giving a fuck what other people think - or at least not nearly as much as in your late teens/early 20's. This also means, knowing yourself makes you know what you need in a relationship. This maturity brings more success than younger years of uncertainty.
>Do what you love.
Not fucking video games you neckbeard fucks. Pick a hobby that enriches you. Learn to create something. Music, food, art. Learn things you WANT to learn not the dumb useless shit we were forced to temporarily memorize in school.
>Life is what you make of it. Unabashedly do what you love. That will get you through the worst days.
>>675766879 I'm almost there. You're just 2 years older. I'll probably wait it out until about 25-30 and if shit doesn't look up by then i'll end it. The way I look at it is might as well wait it out because it's not like I have anything better to do.
>26 >no job >high school education >no gf >drug addict >rehab 4 times >depression, anxiety, ADHD >spent last 6 months addicted to heroin and crack >manipulated mom and dad into founding it >cost them them at least 100 thousand idk I can't even ask >I don't think I can live with what I've done >shooting dangerous amounts of coke right now
33 here. its honestly both extremes: things are awesome and things suck dick
been poor most of my life, but when i was younger my family was actually middle class with a huge 3 story townhouse and things were great. never expected to be this on my ass. i lost my 20s being poor and not getting to do things i wanted to do like party through europe and fuck hot european girls. that said though, ive done a ton of crazy shit, and experienced more than most people do in their entire lives and i didnt really start getting laid till i was 23-30. all sudden i had waves of pussy throwing themselves at me. after 30 though, i think the depression of being 30 kicks in and women can smell it on you. unless youre rich, shits just rough. i still go out all the time and experience life for all i can. i have tons of hobbies im passionate about and meet other people through those, but my friend pool has definitely dwindled down alot. there isnt a day that goes by that not being rich effects me. even in my hobbies, i could def use more money to buy upgrades and stuff to better them, but i cant. there isnt a moment that goes by though where im bored. i always find stuff to make life fun >>675767282
this guy pretty much summed it up. all your of age friends start settling down and become boring. you have to constantly make new friends, but the catch is that older people dont like letting new people into their life, so its harder to make friends. so you end up making friends with younger people and being the old guy in the group
>>675768000 hairline def got worse when i hit 30. it was always so/so but once it started creeping up, girls became much less frequent. without a good hairline, your options for pussy become severely limited no matter what people say. getting laid has become alot less frequent. the rest of my body is in good shape though since i exercise and do yoga regularly, but girls just arnt as interested anymore
I'm having a good time now that I'm 33. Living outside my home country, learning a new language, meeting new people.
When I was 25 I was working in an office being underpaid (my fault.. didn't properly research a proper salary for my job), did nothing but work and play video games wasting time away, and barely had any money saved.
I'm 37 now. Life gets way easier as you get older imo. If you can make it through your 20's and not kill yourself by thrill seeking or depression and grow up and stop partying it gets so much better. Your hormones calm down and and you can actually think with your head for one thing. If you don't piss away all your time in your 20's and got and kept some sort of job with a future you will be experienced enough to make some decent money or maybe start your own business and not fail at it. Dealing with women gets a lot easier also. They calm down a lot too and you can get to the point where you won't take shit from crazy girls and have the experience to recognize that they are and give them the boot. My 2 cents
>>675766465 Nope. Just learn to deal with responsibility. Life got better for me. By no means am I rich but I work steady and have a wife and kid. Kid was on purpose and planned well ahead if time and with our jobs together we can afford a comfortable life. You just have to get your shit together and have a plan.
>>675769484 Ya but you look like you're in your 40s. I am 39, look like I am 25 and life is great. I literally just got home from fucking a 29 yr old 9/10. You gotta look after yourself and up your game breh.
29 here. UK based. Mortgage, three kids, career, long term basically married relationship.
I'm lonely a lot of the time because I have no time or money. I have varied interests and hobbies, I read a lot. I live away from my family while I'm on shift (12+ hours, 3 on 3 off so works out) and do overtime a fair bit so I don't have to worry as much next month when the heating bill comes etc.
It's not all bad - no worse than any other time in life. Spend too much time in your own head, moments of beautiful madness. Don't worry about having nice things and remember: however amazing a time is a memory won't keep you warm & you can't eat a goddamn ideal.
25+ bitches whining. You fuckers are pretty fucking funny. Wait till you hit 40+. Don't know how to even ride a bike anymore without maybe getting hurt. Yeah I can help you lift those 40lbs bags but I might throw my back out and not be able to lift anything for 2-3 fucking weeks. Tired? I play with my kid for 30 min and think is it time for a nap yet? Shit just gets worse gentlemen. Prepare yourselves.
Life is what you make of it no matter how much money you make or how old you are. I make decent money. Get to travel a lot. You have to find something that you enjoy and can incorporate into your life. I tried riding motorcycles and fucking love it. Bought a used bike for 1200. Rode it for a year to make sure I wanted to keep riding. Saved a fortune on fuel over that year....upgraded to an Enduro the next year. Take long ass trips and ride off road. Bad day at work.....go ride my bike on my lunch break. Wife saw how much I enjoy riding so I taught her to ride. Now we go ride together.
>>675770190 Sounds like you need to keep exercising more. I'm 37 and I'll get into slumps, usually through winter. I don't exercise and it is pretty hard to get the ball rolling after that. I go out and hike 2-3 times a week or dirt biking or quading. My step dad's in his 50's and exercises a lot more than I do, that fucker can go
Your college / high school buddies start to slip away as they settle down. Every time you hang out their gf is there being awkward or saying shit like, "don't get too drunk because we gotta see my mom tomorrow morning". A visit you know they arranged to sabotage your chances of a decent night out. Women you date start judging you on your income, not who you are, so you have to actually care about the 9-5 instead of just rolling in hungover and fucking off at 4:45. Older relatives start getting ill, parents start getting ill, huge % of your income goes on faggot taxes. Before you know it you find yourself in a meeting discussing targets for some bs company you can't believe you have to care about, going home to a girl you're also going to settle with. Best part of the day is thinking about the crazy stuff you did in the past, and dreaming about what you could be doing instead but are too pussy to go through with. If you don't have a job by 25 you're fucked as companies now expect you to have 10 years experience for a junior zero hours position slurping smegma off the CO's dick. But at least you're young enough to make changes and live those dreams. Once you get to 30 you're proper fucked.
>be me >graduate school >get job as a comp hardware engineer straight out of college (this is uncommon as fuck) >making 80000 >moving to make this job work made me lose my relationship of 6 years Feels like I have nothing to live for, despite having everything I thought I wanted Life is luck /b/ros Only thing keeping me alive nowadays is WoW, and that's in the shitter too Only 24 but I probably won't make it to 25
>be me > 28 > had fun life finish school be fairly popular > follow dreams > become snowboard instructor > party life > turn 26 realise seasonal work is chaos no steady income or stability > go back to uni > so out of practice woth atudy etc > work part time in porn store whilst uni > struggle through first srmester of forensics bachelors > change to architecture > first semester ok second is hell > doubt self and academic ability > have a few shit relationships. > every time start to get happy and save some money a train wreck of a woman comes into my life.
My advice stay away from crazy women. Find a passion that makes money. Work hard. Life can be shitty after 25. But if you set yourself up with a good foundation. It can be fucking sweet
>>675770915 Man fuck that shit. Get a new hobby - something that'll get you outside. Analogue photography is cool and cheap (unless you want to go all out); it'll make any digital shots you take better too when you've been on film for a while on a full manual camera. Don't let the bitch you used to date define you.
Seriously, I gained 10 pounds over the winter. I do not feel good or healthy. I just started a diet and as the weather gets warmer I will be exercising more. Shits just bad right now, winter really took a toll on my body from me not doing shit. I need to get my ass back in shape. But I do have a bad back, so that shit doesn't help.
girlfriends and friends are temporary/fleeting. youre still left with the rest of your life and thats when you realize you need a strong foundation so all the temporary stuff isnt what you rely on. but it also comes down to money. if you dont have it, 30+ sucks. people judge you way harder for being poor and noones willing to help you out
this guy summed it up. all women care about is your income. the first fucking question they all ask is 'so what do you do for a living'. right then and there they decide if theyre going to take you serious or not. sure you might be able to bang them, but theyre just using you for a quick fuck while they look for someone theyll actually take serious. so they all end up leaving you after 3 months or cheating. ive literally had gfs leave me because their families told them it was time to get serious and start looking for husband material (one of which was poorer than me and i was literally feeding her because she was too poor to eat)
it aint no joke out there in the job market. jobs are getting way the fuck harder to get and unless youre connected or in a field thats desperate, shit is ROUGH.
I'm 43 and found my mid-twenties to be a lot nicer than my teens; same goes for my thirties. I'm starting to hit middle-age bullshit now (joints getting irritable, presbyopia, etc) but other than that things are pretty good. I ain't saddled with college debt, though; y'all are pretty severely fucked in that regard. (It's the baby boomers' fault.)
>>675770915 youre fucking crying because some bitch you got with in highschool is no longer with you? you should see it as a blessing. you are now free to go fuck a ton of pussy. youre making bank and bitches love guys with cash. go buy a bag of blow and get a bunch of sluts to slob on your knob ffs. this is the stupidest crybaby beta shit ive ever heard
