1. Your house plants are alive, and you can't smoke any of them.

2. Having sex in a single bed is out of the question.

3. You keep more food than beer in the fridge.

4. 6:00 AM is when you get up, not when you go to bed.

5. You hear your favorite song on an elevator.

6. You watch the Weather Channel.

7. Your friends marry and divorce instead of go out and break up.

8. You go from 130 days of holiday time to 14.

9. Jeans and a jumper no longer qualify as "dressed up."

10. You're the one calling the police because those damn kids next door won't turn down the stereo.

11. Older relatives feel comfortable telling sex jokes around you.

12. You don't know what time Burger King closes anymore.

13. Your car insurance goes down and your car payments go up.

14. You feed your dog Science Diet instead of McDonalds leftovers.

15. Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt.

17. Dinner and a movie is the whole date instead of the beginning of one.

18. Eating a basket of chicken wings at 3 AM would severely upset, rather than settle, your stomach.

19. You go to the chemist for ibuprofen and antacid, not condoms and pregnancy tests.

20. A $4.00 bottle of wine is no longer "pretty good stuff."

21. You actually eat breakfast food at breakfast time.

22. "I just can't drink the way I used to," replaces, "I'm never going to drink that much again."

23. 90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for real work.

24. You no longer drink at home to save money before going to a bar.

25. You read this entire list looking desperately for one sign that doesn't apply to you.

Hey, I'm 19 and #15 applies to me! I always say, I'm 19 going on 50 though. Not looking forward to actual 50 (no offence to anyone!)

Hahaha, very good Saba, fraid very few apply to me [i'm 30something] but a lot has to do with working rotational 3 shifts, they leave you with strange sleep/eating patterns.

it's a sad sad day :wink: when i read that list and rather than saying, "oh, yeah, only # X applies to me" i read it and say all of them, but

# 5 but usualy the grocery store not the elevator
#3 you HAVE to keep a lot of beer in the fridge as well as food, that's just responsible adulthood
#17 dates? go? ooouuuut?
and finally
#18 as it is always time for hot wings!

i guess 4 out of 25 ain't bad! :lol: :lol:

Damn!

I'm 24, but that list makes me feel geriatric... Even if I still consider myself to be living like a bachelor.

(hmm My fridge is almost near empty, and the only food I keep in my closets are packages of instant mac'n'cheese.)

And the whole dating thing.. god...

Since I started working for a living (Oct. last year) I havn't had the time or the energy for such things.

I'll prolly die a bachelor, but at least I work hard so I can afford my Saab :)

Can't win 'em all I guess. :P
