I think it’s also your age. I just turned 29 and have been feeling similar things on some levels. But recently I’m really just fine being alone. Traveling to see friends and family are highlights of the month. Doing really well at work everyday is usually so exhausting that it’s difficult to write a post on medium. Sometimes I just try and answer questions on Quora.

Being financially independent, living alone and being responsible for no one besides yourself… I can imagine tons of people who would love to have what we have as SINKS. We should use this time to understand who we are and what makes us really happy. Maybe then we can move on to being successful DINKS and be good role models for any potential kids of the future.
