I don’t want a significant other or to get married ever and have kids. I like that I can spend the money I make on me and only me. 25 yo M here

Well ya know if ya have an SO that makes bank too, then it’s actually easier to split the cost on big items and have even nicer stuff 😉


I don't think you've met my wife!

You should do what makes you happy.

Beware. Comments about how you're not "complete" and "traumatized" are coming to teach you "lessons". I say do whatever makes you feel ok.


I’m very clear about what I want from the beginning. Keeping it cute and keeping it casual. 🥰


I’m with you, but I want an SO to spend time with (and have sex obviously). Don’t mind spending money on them either if it makes us both happy. Don’t want to get married or have kids.

Ideally we’d just buy a beach house and a boat and spend our days on the water just screwing around. Life seems ideal that way.




K 🙂


I support your confession👀👀


The only person responsible for your happiness is you OP. You’re young (I am too). Things may change or they may not.

I have a boss in his 40s married with no kids. That guy lives the life.

I also know others that aren’t visiting a new county every other month because they have kids. Both are happy.


Because you’re still a child


Yeah I was same OP. Gets lonelier when your friends get older, pair up, don’t want to go out in the middle of the week anymore, etc. Friendsgiving becomes twice the size from all the romantic partners.

And then if you do find a person you’re attracted to, who cares for you- what, do you keep them at arm’s length forever because you don’t want to be tied down? That’s not a life plan, that’s a bad sitcom character.

Anyway. Do what makes you happy OP, but “lol I’m gonna spend all my money on meeeeeeeeee” is maybe not the holistic life strategy you think it is.


That’s cool bro. You do you.

Nothing wrong with living life the way you want to.


As long as you are upfront with women you date about this, I see no problem with it. You do you, boo.

Are you asexual?

so, allosexual but aromantic. that’s legit.

Sounds healthy for your age

Nothing wrong with this but keep in mind your perspective may change as you age.

I’m open to that. Hard to see now though.

This is an absurd take. You just need to find someone that makes just as much or more as you. Been married 10 years and have never spent my money on anyone but me. She even pays the entire mortgage, I'm just a rent free tenant! In 12 years together we've never once had an argument. No kids and not sure if that's even in the picture. DINK ftw.

Change your outlook. If I can do it you can too!

I mean, from her perspective, doesn’t that make you the parasite, the person weighing her down?

Or maybe… there’s always going to be one person who makes less in a marriage, and it’s not relevant because it’s supposed to be two people coming together to form a single unit?


You wouldn’t have made the confession if you haven’t subconsciously hoped for people telling you that something is wrong with you.

Well usually you confess your sins, not your good deeds.

I’m honestly the same way tbh lol I think a lot of people are but are afraid to admit it. And yes, childhood trauma prob has something to do with it🤣

Enjoy my friend. My wife and I welcomed our second child last week. It’s been a mixture of emotions (mainly positive). I’m not gonna lie… I think about how life would be without kids all the time (primarily when I’m in the thick of my kids not cooperating or throwing tantrums). My wife and I traveled together for three years before settling down and having kids. I AM SO GRATEFUL that we did.

Hey hi kinda new here 👋

But how to deal with a creative feeling down about work — he and his AD partner aren’t working out and has complained about not getting juicy briefs.

Couldn’t give him anything big because he’s always missing deadlines and answering the briefs even for the tiniest revisions, prior to having been partnered to said AD. I’ve also been very patient with him but I’ve called them out recently for missing out on the asks and the deadlines. Thanks in advanced 🙇‍♀️

I am 29 years old and make a lot of money. I feel very guilty when I see people on social media who can’t afford the same things I do. When family or friends ask me what I do I downplay what I do by saying “I’m just an accountant. it’s not all that great” when in reality I love what I do and I love the lifestyle I have. hopefully not a humblebrag because I’m assuming a lot of people here are at or near the same earning level and can relate.

Why are ppl so obsessed w their jobs? Doesn’t make sense.


I have no idea what is wrong with me or how to fix it. In my lifetime, I have no real friends even though I meet so many people. I reach out and they dismiss me. I ask how they're doing and they don't reciprocate or ignore me. I really try to be a kind, fun friend.

My therapist thinks there's nothing wrong with me, but I just meet the wrong people.
But this sounds wrong, they all have close friends, nobody actively hates me, though clearly I am doing something wrong. I can't live like this.
