When you are single at my age *cough*, you figure out that it isn’t all that practical to delay the big LIFE plans like house purchases, pet adoptions, or even globe trotting. Some of us think it would be great to share all these life planning choices with the one you plan to be with forever and ever.
Of course, it’s a personal choice and preference but I sometimes wonder if I polled the people who waited to decide and the people who didn’t, what advice would they give in hindsight.
Do you think waiting on a mate to make big choices is a good idea or a risky one?
If you are single and own a home, did you consider the possibility of meeting your future spouse/mate soon after you bought it?
This may be something that is more prevalent in women. I think some women want to put part of their life choices on hold in hopes that they will have someone to share their lives with. I actually understand that logic but I wonder if that is something they will regret later.
Does it ever bother men when they meet women who have already made so many big life choices? Does it bother women when they meet men who have their 5 year plan mapped out so solidly with little room for flexibility?
What are your thoughts about the big plans? Are you the type to let things unfold and whatever will be..will be?
