Oh okay, yes a lot of those guys might have 'missed out' when they were younger(got married too young and regretted it) but a lot of them are also just pervy and are always going to be that way regardless. I am not into much older men, never have been. And definitely never impressed by his money, huge red flag if a guy feels the need to mention that to me so soon. Guys that need to buy women are usually lame and not my type.
I don't see any reason why you can't continue your lifestyle in a decade, unless you have no money, because it does cost to play. You can do it on a budget though. One of the girls on the vegas trip is older than me with hubbie and child, doesn't stop her. I would want hubbie with me though. I think it's important to find someone where those values match up. My ex and I did not, he hated travelling and I was miserable for that, amongst many other reasons. I also don't like travelling without my SO in general. When I'm in a relationship, I want my guy to be my best friend because what I want and need out of a relationship. Personally I wish it woulda worked with us, but I don't mind being single for now, not ready to try the relationship thing again yet. I also love having my own space right now and be able to pick up and do whatever I want.
I know what you mean by women who get married just because that's what you are supposed to do. I do think some are missing out. And many tend to be judgemental of my lifestyle but whatever, most people are judgemental. I know I am of some things.
