I overheard my 30 year old daughter talk about a old classmate of hers. Apparently he just lost his virginity at the age of 30. I wasn't sure whether to laugh or feel sorry for him. When he was a teen he was one of those kids that everybody thought was weird. He didn't have any male friends and girls didn't pay attention to him. He used to eat lunch alone. I know popular culture likes to believe that these kids grow up and become "cool" or whatever but it kind of surprised me that it took him so long. That he was still struggling socially throughout his 20's.
I know many of you probably don't have children in their 30's and I know in many cases kids from high school have graduated and left the city but for those of you who know what happened to the kids that everybody thought was "weird" in high school? Did he struggle in adulthood? Did he thrive?
