A fella in his late teens and twenties is strongly affected by his raging hormones. Sometimes the ladies are all he can think about. At the same time, young men normally are just not that wise. As I mentioned in a previous post, I didn’t consider myself somewhat wise until 25, and then just barely so. All of this leads to a fog; where a young man just doesn’t see the world well.
This changes as a fella gets into his thirties. If he has been a bit introspective, he is wiser than his previous self. Furthermore, the hormones are not raging quite so much. If the young fella is paying attention, the fog has lifted.
What are the implications of all of this? One should be extra careful with decisions about the ladies in the twenties. Maybe get advice from older fellas. They have hopefully seen much, and know much. Even in the thirties, it is still a good idea to seek advice.
A fella should know his limitations, and the fog of the twenties can be a limitation.
