Is 24 years old really that young?

Is 24 years old really that young, that's all people say to me "oh you are young, why do you want to settle down?". I don't think it's that young I feel like I should be doing more with my life at this stage

    yes it's really that young. when you're 30, 40, or even 28 you'll look back and realize how young you were. it depends on each person but definately go do more of whatever you want to do. you won't regret spending the years investing in yourself. settling down and getting married isn't a bad thing at all but why not wait a few years--you are only young once.

    24 is at a point where you can set up the rest of your life to be great, or not so great. It really takes 5 years to effectively learn a skill that will provide the resources for the rest of your life. 4 years of college or 4 years in a Union apprenticeship program, Pipe fitter, electrician, or engineer, or what ever you want to do, at that point you will be 29, and not asking if 29 is too to young. Start now on a career path you like, and you will be a success.

    If that's how u feel then that's how u feel, but sometimes things change. U could find someone 2 settle down with and then realise that it wasn't really what u wanted after all. Allot of my friends r married with kids at my age (22) and some younger. Just make sure it's what u really want b4 jumping straight into it. Good luck, Mwah.

    It depends on the individual. To me, 24 is the perfect age to settle down.

    Define "settle down". Do you mean get an apt, start a career and get your local library card, or do you mean get married and have babies?

    If you just want to start a life on your own and get into your thing 24 is perfect, if you want to get married and have babies you might want to wait another 4 years or so....

    That's up to you. Some people are very mature for the age, so I wouldn't tell anyone over the age of 21 that they are not too young for anything.

    Well you are still an adult. I was married and settled down by 24. It depends on your level of maturity I guess. HTH : )

    That young for what? Running for president? Don't let anyone keep you from doing what you want.
