Guys, Its Time To Settle Down

This topic has been on my mind for a while, so I have to get mildly serious for a moment. I hope you all don't mind, but I need to have a little 'man-to-man' with the guys on this one. You know what really baffles me about relationships today? How so many men in my age bracket, late 30s, just haven't grasped onto the idea of truly settling down with one woman. Obviously, there's a lot of men who simply don't want to get married, and that's fine, marriage isn't for everyone, but there simply comes a point in a man's life where he wants more than a 'one-night-stand' or 'girlfriend'.

C'mon fellas, this hasn't crossed your mind at least once!? Haven't you noticed all your friends are getting married, are already married, or just got married? They're truly stepping into their manhood and adulthood, as well as their rightful place as 'Head-of-the-Household'. They're settling down and starting families-that doesn't bother you in the least bit? Are you, and perhaps one other buddy from the 'old gang' the only two still hitting the 'bar-scene' and nightlife, when there were originally five or six of you? Does your ear-to-ear smile and enthusiasm suddenly dissipate when you tell one of the 'old gang's' newlyweds about the 'hot chick' you met last night at the 20s-something nightclub, and he doesn't show or share your excitement? Well, now you know why.

Don't you get tired of trying to remember where or how you 'this girl' or 'that girl', and what you said to her or what charade you're playing with 'this one' or 'that one'? I mean, it just gets old after a while. Oh! Wait! I got one! Doesn't it seem like it's getting harder and harder to pick up that 'hot chick' you used to snag blindfolded with your eyes closed? Of course it is-you're getting old! The 'hot chick' only wants an older man for one thing-money!

I bet your married friends are a lot happier, aren't they? All they talk about are their kids, and all their achievements, and Little League accomplishments, and how fast they're growing, huh? When they're not talking about their kids, they're telling you how much of a trooper their wife is, and how they love her, despite her flaws and their ups-and-downs. They're posting photos of family vacations, anniversaries, kids' birthdays and recitals all over Facebook and Twitter, and receiving a million 'Likes' and 'Tweets' instantly! These guys are truly happy!

Maybe its fear of commitment that's makes you avoid settling down, and that's okay; these things usually require a little work, but the end result and rewards make it all worthwhile. I can't think of anything better than waking to the most beautiful woman in the world everyday; knowing she's the mother of my child(ren), and she's going to stick with me through the 'thick-and-thin', and no matter how old I may get. A hot, home-cooked meal every night isn't bad either, or how about a country-style breakfast every Sunday morning, that sounds pretty good too! My dad once told me he had absolutely no intentions on 'settling down' or getting married-until he met my mother-that was 45 years ago, and they're still going strong today! So look guys, stop listening to all the negative stories about settling down and getting married, and just do it! Go get your ultimate 'hot chick'!
