Come on, if your parents are remotely traditional or just plain jane parents, they would love to see their offspring do the same and have some kids to keep the family lineage chugging along. Honestly, if given the choice of grandchildren or a 5/4 SFH in St Francis Wood, which would your parents prefer? No, the 5/4 does not have a pool or views. Of course, they would jump at Choice A - grandchildren!!!
When someone says something like that, so matter of fact (great guys are hard to come by) well it sounds like you were either burned before or simply just haven’t met someone remotely decent. I suppose it could happen in this mad, mad world of ours. I would just suggest that you do not put up walls, Donald Trump sized walls, that literally and figuratively prevent Mr. Great Guy from ever getting close to you. At the end of the day, it is not about the houses or the bitcoins that satisfy us. It is the human relationships that we have (friends, family and partners) that nourish us and makes life worth living. Now go out there and jump on the first decent guy who is not wearing a wedding band!!!
