Dating a 30 year old man in your 20s, he might be stuck in his ways…

He appreciates all the unsolicited support, but he also thinks it would be pretty great if everyone stopped thinking there was something wrong with him.
Because year-old men who are ready to settle down still want to have time before becoming dads. His sky-high confidence carried him smoothly through college, and no one was surprised when he landed a smart, sweet, beautiful girlfriend in his early 20s.
I am trying to remain positive, but two things are really bothering me.
There's just one thing The Total Package seems to be having a hard time finding -- a girl worthy of his greatness.
