Settling Down is not for Everyone

It is fair to say that many people reach a point in their lives where they feel as though its time to ‘get serious’ with life. A point where the thought of a big night out on the tiles is less appealing than a cosy evening in with someone special. A point even where the idea of starting family seems like a nice idea instead of an unbelievably expensive investment.

Yes, most people come to this point at some stage in their lives.

However, many do not.

Indeed, significant numbers of people simply do no get this urge and instead prefer the idea of being footloose and fancy-free. Unfortunately, people who choose to avoid the ‘getting serious’ option often find themselves feeling marginalised, especially when their close friends take it in turns to get married, buy a house and have kids.

So, what does a footloose and fancy-free person do when they still have a large appetite for socialising yet cannot enjoy as many opportunities to go out with their pals as they once did?

Make new friends
Well, they compliment their existing social groups by making new friends who share a similar outlook on the less than glorious virtues of settling down. Fortunately, ‘Online2Offline’ social networking websites can easily facilitate this as they enable like-minded people everywhere to make friends online and meet up at organised social gatherings so that they can then share their interests in person.

Footloose and fancy-free? You bet!
