Apologies. That comment was pre-coffee. I was thinking of our bed and what we have is more of a quilt, which we wouldn't wash every week. I still like mixing it up with sheets and would need more than one duvet cover were I to do it your way. Also, I like a tightly tucked bed that more or less holds your feet in place at the bottom, so I'm not sure I could live without the top sheet.

Last night I went down a youtube rabbit hole vortex and clicked on a link for a Super Bowl scientology commercial. After watching the commercial I reluctantly clicked on the related videos on the side and the other videos started to make a lot of sense (about organizing you life, identifying suppressors and social/anti-social people ect ) My wife poked me and asked: Is the heat still on in the living room? Because you always forget to turn it off." and I thought: WTF woman? why you got be always suppressin me like that?"

To answer your question, "life" takes care of that, you both get busy and start doing other things.

Makes sense. It just seems impossible to stay close with college friends unless you live in the same city.

But beyond that, I'm just starting to realize how less and less we're starting to have in common, especially as our interests and priorities change in life.

As famed rock band blink 182 would say, I guess this is growing up.

This is also why professional people should not get married until they're 30. If you meet a chic at 18, both go to university, get professional jobs, etc., neither one of you is the same person you were at 18. Who's to say you'll want to be together at that point?

The top bun on my Chick Fil A is stale. So along with the guilt I feel for having gone to Chick Fil A I have to endure this roll.

College friends suck. I have kept in touch with exactly 0 friends from college (guys I deployed with excepted) but am still really close with the friends I grew up with. The formative years and knowing people's families creates much stronger bonds. My brother is the same way.

Huh, I have like zero friends from growing up. I see some of them when I go back into town on occasion...but I see my college friends all of the time.

I suppose it depends on where you go. All of my friends from school ended up all over the country and with no common place we all fell out of contact. With friends from home, even when they end up in different places you still see them a few times a year.

I agree to some extent with this, but I would also say that you'd better get married by 40, or you're fucked on the other side of the coin. Your own habits as a person, and your tolerability for others', become quirky and unique as you get older, to the point that rarely do people past 40 really want to deal with anyone else full-time.

I have this theory that we're all sort of flung outward from normalcy the day we are born. The older we get, our own life journey, our experiences and setbacks, our injuries and successes, take us further and further from relatability with others. It's important on this journey to find someone relatively quickly, once we are set enough in our core desires, to cling to and at least share that shaping journey with. If you don't grab someone fast, you're just out there hurtling in space and can only shout to those within range, but rarely closely enough to be understood.

I'd be curious to see marriage success rates by age at wedding date. I'd think the most successful marriages would come out of the married at 28-35 range.

For women, 35 is "OMG I need to have a baby NOW" age, so prob a decent amount of desperation marriages by that point.

It is extremely difficult to engage in productive conversation with people who view themselves as champions of Righteousness and Justice (with capital letters). If you disagree with them on even a minor point, they take it as evidence that you must be doing battle for the forces of Injustice. It's hard for me to imagine navigating the world with such a simplistic, childlike point of view.
