My friends and their babies

Last night I had dinner with four couples. I brought my friend Jake, but he and I are not a couple.

Two of the couples have young children, the third couple is looking at rings, and the fourth couple is thinkin' things over. Oh, and Jake is married with a baby, and his wife and child are out of town with relatives. None of these people is an AAFer, by the way.

Age-wise I'm right in the center of this crowd. But I felt a million miles away from most of the things they were discussing: child-proofing the kitchen, firing/hiring a sitter, what style engagement ring is the most tasteful, etc.

That isn't to suggest that I could never be interested in marriage and babies. If you look at one of my earlier blog entries you'll see that not too long ago I was very interested in both. But I've changed.

I feel like I'm right in the middle of this changing process. I only recently came to accept the possibility of dating more than one person at a time. Haven't quite worked my way up to trying out group sex yet, but we'll see. I don't know where I'll end up. Wherever it is, I just hope I like myself.

Sometimes I wonder if the place I end up will be too far away from marriage and babies for me to ever want them. I guess I'll know when I know.
