Missing out on Youth

    I'm 20 years old and recently broke up with a great guy because I felt like I was going to "miss out" on someone or something if I was tied down. I feel like I couldn't reciprocate the love and care that was being given to me because my mind was wandering. It sucks. I really like him still.. But I felt bad for having "eyes" for others guys and not just seeing him like he says he sees me.. I was not falling for him or being swept, but he was and it hurt him to know I didn't feel the same. I am sure I did the right thing because I went out on Saturday night and he didn't even cross my mind once. I am young and want to find my sexual and personal identity a bit more before I decide to give myself away fully and take myself off the market. Is that me being immature and stupid for thinking my idea of what I want will change over time in my 20s?
    Sorry for the long topic. It's just I do still have some feelings for him and he has ALOT towards me. I'm not sure if it's better to stay with someone in a Relationship at 20 or live and experience and then settle down with someone later in life?

    Yeah, that's immature, but its part of growing up. You made a decision, and now you get to reap the benefits and deal with the consequences.

    No, it's not being immature. It's being 20. Most guys in their early twenties are not looking for relationships, but want to have a good time. So if you don't want to be tied down in a relationship, don't start one.

    Wow, Think you have the wrong forum, frankly the wrong sight.
    At your age, you are to be whining about not finding a LTR and how shallow the community is.

    Yes! Now you can join those posting about how gay men suck, and you can't find a man

    It all depends on how you want to spend your youth. Some of us choose to go out and be partyholics, some of us get a job and get married, some go into the military, and some of us fully commit ourselves to education, pledging years of our youth for the progress of scholasticism.


    It's what you like and what you do with it that matters. icon_cool.gif
