I am a 35-year-old man and I play Pokémon Go

Pokémon Go

The new Pokémon app exploded on the scene and it seems to be really popular. However, there are a few folks out there that don’t mind letting us all know that they think the whole thing is “stupid” or “juvenile.”

Now if you don’t like the game or just don’t feel like putting any time into it I understand, not everything is for everyone. But to insult the people that do play it as if they are somehow “less of an adult” is a bit off-putting to me.

I’m a 35-year-old male and I play Pokémon Go and since I am a grown up that pays his own bills I honestly don’t owe anyone any explanation for why I play an app but I will give a few anyway.

I work from home and sitting around all day on my laptop doesn’t provide much exercise. I have been trying to get out and walk more and I have noticed that I walk further when I am playing the game. I walk more often as well.

I am not married; I don’t have any children or friends that I go out with. I’m not very social and have little to no reason to leave home.

I think it’s a good thing that I am getting more exercise and doing something that isn’t stressful.

I am sure many others have their own unique reasons for playing or not playing.

But I assure you that I am a busy adult that walks around the block a few times every day for health reasons and I sometimes check to see if there are Pokémon around.

If that still is funny or weird or makes me “less than an adult” then I don’t know what else to tell you.
