Am I acting "too old"?

I went out with a few girlfriends last night to celebrate a birthday. I didn't drink because I'm pregnant and I don't really drink anyways. But, I'm sitting there we're all 25 or older and we're at a club and I'm like "I've really just outgrown this lifestyle." I know I might sound like such a wet blanket, but I'm just done with that. I am happily married, 2 kids and 1 on the way. Everyone there was married. Why are we celebrating a birthday like this? The girls were all flirting with other men and getting them to buy drinks. We didn't get home until 4. Am I acting too old? Is it normal for me to want nothing to do with that lifestyle?

  • Oh NO!!! You are acting like the mature, responsible MOTHER and wife that you are!! I was exactly the same way!! I never cared much for the club scene/meat market when I was single, let alone when my bridesmaids took me out to one for my bachelorette party! All going out to a nightclub did was reinforce that I was soooooo ready to be married and settle down!! LOL :o)

  • No I wouldn't say your too old. Your just not interested in Partying the way that they're partying. Guess you could say it just isn't your thing.

  • No..not all. You've grown up. And you're content with your life the wat it is. I am 27, i don't drink..smoke...go to clubs...loud noise gives me a headache. People out grow the club scene in their own time.

  • No! You are responsible and mature. I am the same way and have been for quite awhile now. I wasn't much of a fan of the clubs to start with but now, I only go if it's a special night with my husband (we went for our anniversary). I don't drink, it's rare my husband drinks... I think at some point, we just moved past the wanting to go out and party.

  • Yup, just mature. I've never been a party girl either. The only thing I ever found bars good for was playing pool.
