Timing is everything?
So what happens when your biological clocks are in different time zones?
While some women walk around acutely aware of their biological clocks and when they will cease to tick entirely, little attention is given to men with their own relationship time bombs likely to cause a storm.
Like, say... when he's older.
Maybe he's A LOT OLDER.
Maybe he has kids already and doesn't want any more.
Maybe he just never wants them at all...
Or maybe he wants them by the time he's 40, and you just so happen to be dating him at 38.
But if you're 25... whose time zone should you live in?
He's a grown up, for real and you're just getting there.
He's had 10 years to pay off his student loans and yours are still in deferment...
So what are you to do?
Is it better to rush yourself or slow h i m d o w n?
Where you used to think you had at least a decade before you even started THINKING about such things, suddenly his 4-0 is looming in the distance like a cloud likely to cause the emotional hurricane that could ruin your relationship.
But can you weather the impending storm of babies, marriage and a mortgage that you might not be ready for?
Or should you instead flee and hope it rains men your own age?
