CarbGoggles saidI also feel like my existence lacks purpose without a family of my own.
It's unfortunate that gay guys feel that the only thing that gives their lives purpose is "having a family" or just being in a relationship.
Luckily, my career gave me my purpose. Also the several years of volunteer work I did for a non-profit. But if your job is ho-hum I can understand wishing for a better life.
Yeah its all good, but have in mind growing old and alone is something most people don't want -regardless of how cool their jobs are. And not only that, its just the fact that having the people you love around is awesome. Imagine having grand kids and stuff. I respect you're not interested in that, and that your career is enough, but it's not hard to understand why so many people do want to make a family.
