    I blame this kind of thinking for the divorce rate. You cannot successfully grow old with someone you don't know and you don't know a person, at least not enough to decide you want to spend the rest of your life with them, for years and years. Also, both parties need to be adults before the "deciding to spend the rest of your lives together" part occurs. And growing up can happen when you're 15 or 40.

    And you, Dave are most certainly not a grown up yet.

    (But it's okay! Neither am I.)

    A Story About an ISTJ Trying to Settle Down: My ISTJ dad thought he'd be married by the age of 25-27. But here's what really happened: He went into the military when he was 17, stayed there for three years, then focused on getting a four year degree which he earned in three, and then as he was starting his career the family (primarily ISTJ and ESTJ) started complaining about him not having a girlfriend. So he got one... who just happened to be mentally ill! And I was born! He was 30 at the time but still not married. Unfortunately due to my mother's illness all the mother duties got dumped on him. He basically lived as a single dad who also had to be caretaker for his girlfriend. (Her illness got worse and worse over time. And we were rather poor too.) The relationship ended violently to say the least. Eventually he married at age 43 to a different person. It lasted for a year and ended in a nasty divorce. After that he resolved to never date again. (Which he hasn't.) A few years later he fell in love with a cat. He now has five of them and calls them his children. (They are very spoiled. But it's cute.) Now he's 52 and says he's "reasonably happy". His words not mine.

    Thing is I have decided I'm going to adopt all my kids so now there's not even a time limit on having kids! Ideally I'd like to be in my late 20s-early 30s so I have enough energy to keep up with them.

    I'm pretty okay with not being married.
    I applaud you. Not even kids get adopted.

    Until you get stuck with them!

    I don't have this maternal instinct either. I don't even want to THINK about having children. I don't think I'm well suited for it.

    Hmm... I thought I WAS grown up! Bummer! I'm not as stupid as I sound on these forums Tiny!

    On the other hand.... does that mean YOU will grow up with me Tiny?!

    Damn you Costrin!

    And Shaula is there a such thing as a paternal instinct? I really would like to have kids at some point.

    Aw, I have an INxP whom I love and feel I want to spend the rest of my life with (though we're not going to even begin to discuss marriage for another 4-5 years). We've just moved in together on a trial basis (if things continue to go smoothly, he will stop paying rent on his shitty room in BedStuy in June).

    However, we've decided that only one of us will be on the lease so if we break up after he moves in officially (lets hope this doesn't happen!) there won't be any messy lease breaking.

    This is what happens when P types try to make decisions.

    But if you want to hang out and talk about how awesome it is to not be a grown up, I'm down!

    Really? I was expecting a violent response. Something along the lines of "HELL NO!". I certainly wasn't expecting the "aw"? Perhaps you are in a good moof tonight Tiny!

    I should say so as my father has demonstrated beyond measure.

    Good because I think I have that... to a slight extent.
