    At 36, I've turned down a few relationships that could have lead to marriage

    Honestly the idea of a relationship has become sort of like a bargain thing these days, very seldom do I actually feel like I want to pursue someone.

    I've maybe had 3-4 women who were interested in me in that sense but I ended up backing out because simply I didn't want to give up my lifestyle.

    Not ugly, not an incel or a weirdo of any sort -- just wanted to focus on my career and like the life I live as a bachelor.

    I also have a lot of time right now where my job can flourish, I work 24/7 -- anything outside of my job would be deemed a distraction.

    How can you work 24/7? There's so much other stuff I want to do and relax so I can do a better job the next day. Work out, go surfing, go camping, play basketball, watch the NFL, etc.

    Companies will just lay you off and they don't have your back. IMO it's not worth it to work 24/7. I'll take a 9-5 job.

    Family is there for your lifetime (hopefully). They say no one ever sat on their deathbed and said they wanted to work more. I have a kid so I come from that perspective. You don't have to get married to have a kid. Take it from the guy on here who got a random Tinder sloot pregnant.

    All i know is becoming a childless 50 something is not the life i want. I've met a few lifelong bachelors are they seem weird AF...but you gotta do what makes you happy man. Just don't buy into the misc myth that a guy can go on banging these 20 year olds deep into their 50's and settle down. It usually doesnt work that way. Kids are a blessing and so is a faithful, caring wife that takes care of you into your old age.

    What about planning for 40-45 to have kids? Assuming the man is consistently increasing his SMV in his 30โ€™s.

    Arguably, and depending on the guy, a 30 year old man would be cashing out his chips too early. Similar to how a 30yo woman maybe shouldโ€™ve cashed her chips in earlier.

    Iโ€™m similar age to OP and dating gets easier and easier. That said, the main issue is getting away from that sugar daddy dynamic. But once a woman is 27+ I think that diminishes.
