Hey man, dont be so...hm...negative... we are living in 21st century, we got freedom (in relative way), everyone can do what he wants to.. if you really want be game designer, if even thought about it makes you satisfied and maybe filled with passion, go for it! Why do you think about others? They have their lives, you have your one own. You are the pilot of your life, do what you love! Why do you thing, that if you are going to be game designer you are not able to find a good girl ? Thats bullshit, there is maybe 4 billions women in this world, be sure there is at least one, that is going to be intersted in things that you like too, even gaming.. it doesnt matter what you do, just do what you love and go for your dreams, everything is possible (my own experience, I have girl that half year didnt want me to date and now we are really happy together over one year..) what I want to say is, dont give up, never, if you really want something.. dont have fear, fear is going to make you weaker, have faith, faith that is everything going to be alright..
