I'm 22, almost 23 years old. I had my son when I was 18, almost 19. Since my son was born I have left his father (alcoholic, imature, all around ass) I have had to find my own place (almost own now), I have a car paid off, and I have a steady, fairly good paying job. All I do is work out in the morning, work, take care of my son after work and go around again.
I just feel like I didn't get to be a dumb teenager but I'm okay with that. I have friends but they are all in their 30s. They say that when I talk about people my age drinking and partying I sound like an old lady. I don't see the appeal of drinking and acting stupid. I have never been to a bar or club.
I have not dated since I left my ex (father to my son, I use the term father loosely). I have been hit on quite a few times and asked out but I just have no interest. I feel like having someone romantically in my life will slow me down or complicate my life.
I just feel like I'm already halfway done with my life. I couldn't be happier about how I am raising my son but sometimes at night I think about what do I do when my son turns 18? I'll be 36 and have no one to take care of.
Has anyone ever felt like this? I can't be having a mid-life crisis now can I? How do I get out of this funk?

Next question overall
My breasts aren't as sore at 7 weeks pregnant. Should I be worried?
