Of course they do, but I refuse to be coralled n forced to grow up fast at all. so I'll never own one.. seems more of a profoundly altering commitment than keeping a gf. Besides there's too many on the road. grlfirends.. cars.. girlfriends driving cars, god forbid... no. Just no. also them 'boy racers' make it seem really naff

Nothing is ever black and white

Spoiler: it's just very, very, very, very dark blue

I don't look down on people who don't drive. I look, if I'm honest, a little suspiciously on people who don't have a licence (I should point out that I live in an area where the public transport is poor at best). I do look down on people who have no intention to ever learn. After years of being the only one of my close friends with a car, I got sick to the teeth of having to drive people around. For example, if I wanted a game of poker, at my house, I'd have to spend half an hour driving to everyone else's house to collect them. Then another half an hour afterwards to drop them home. It gets old fast.

On a side note, I absolutely love driving! I couldn't do without a car (or a motorbike, as of last October ).

No, I don't look down on people who don't own cars. I've had my full licence for 23 years now and have owned a car on and off. During the years that I used public transport I was slightly richer. They are a huge expense now with the increase in tax and fuel, but if it's the price I have to pay for the freedom I've got, then it's worth it.

I notice this too when it comes to meeting the opposite sex too, however i'm of the opinion that it helps keep potential gold diggers away but it can be said that maybe it shows lack of progress in ones life.......... discuss! :-)
No I don't
