Ever get the feeling that the way you live is frowned upon? If I accidentally mention that I don’t need a house phone, cable, or a TV because Internet takes care of all those, most people disagree. If I admit that I’m 24 (the Internet seems to think I’m too old), and I haven’t gone to a concert or party because I’m just not interested, people are shocked and confused. I have to make several excuses why I won’t be playing football next week because “I don’t want to” evidently isn’t a good enough reason.
If I’m foolish enough to say that I don’t really have any friends offline and I don’t date because I don’t really want to get married, that raises even more eyebrows.
I find myself asking “Whose life is this?”
