Tips, tricks and advice on dating | How To Adult

In less than a year, three of my friends got married and had babies. My friend and I, let's call her Jessica, whom I've known since I was 5, like to visit the babies as much as possible. One weekend when we were visiting one of our friends and their baby in Vancouver, Wash., we came to the realization of how strange life can be, how everyone has such a different life path. Here we had friends that had a house, were married and had a baby. We were still single, living in the city and doing whatever we wanted, whenever we wanted. We spent all of our free time together with our other two friends, Aubrey and Damian, doing whatever. We spent most of our free time together, going on trips, having girls nights that involved giggle fests and scary movies. The best part about our friend group was that we didn't have significant others or kids to worry about. We could make plans at any time without having to ask a significant other or worry about babysitters for a kid.
