I don't think it's a requirement, so don't feel obligated

I'm turning 23 next month and want to die

HAHA, no, really, it just feels so ... old. And most of the time I still feel like I'm still 18.

Oh God sister. I'm 29. Let's not have that discussion.

I will just say that the length of time between "Man, I'm still young... I don't want to be MARRIED yet! I'm totally cool with this!" and "Holy *$(@ I'm old and I'm not married and my life is over" is... a surprisingly short period of time.

I am 41 closing in on 42 in a few months...

25 was the birthday that freaked me out. I think everyone has at least one birthday like that (some people have lots of them).

I do not feel like an adult...growing up is optional...you only have to do it as much as you feel like and no further

Also life is not a race and should not be looked at as a competition...doing that is only going to make you a sad panda

I totally share your pain, Grace. I'm going to be 21 in a couple of weeks and I have nothing together in my life. I'm probably going to stay in bed and cry all day on my birthday LOL. I want to be 19 again, 19 was a good age.

To be honest, 20 was a really odd time for me - you're still in school which means you're kind of in limbo between teenager and adult imo. It's a VERY odd place to be.

So far I think I've enjoyed 25-28 (now) the best: I'm out of school with "adult responsibilities, I'm way more confident in who I AM now, things have really fallen into place recently, and I'm def looking forward to the future, but not in a "get me out of this NOW" way.

I do run into the "no kids yet?!" phenomenon here and there, but again, that's old hat for me since it's been happening since the mass birthing of my friends around age 25. :P NBD now!

It scares me.

On a more interesting note, I joined the forums when I was 15 and Chaz when I was around 16. I guess growing up is good.

SIGH.

When did everyone here start feeling obligated to act like a real life adult?
Umm 37...still don't feel obligated.

Yeah I still pretty much feel that way at almost 23 which is what sometimes scares me. Lol. I get discouraged when I still feel the same that I did at 20 lol but actually, I do feel good that I have a path finally and feel confident that by 25 I'll be more "together". So yeah I'm hoping 25-28 will be good for me too lol. That seems to be when most of my friends start really getting it together too.

I didn't mind turning 20. I didn't feel the pressure to start acting adult until I got a "real" job... then it was like, I'm done with school and working full time, guess that means I need to move on with my life??
