So my family and friends keep pressuring me to find a man and date him. At the moment I am not interested in dating anyone for personal reasons. Every time I see them, they say oh have you found a man recently? And I keep rolling my eyes, bc its not the only thing in the world thats important, I don't need to be in a relationship in order to be happy...
Anyone feels like this?

I think it happens more frequently to single ladies while they are young and before the whole "biological clock" thing expires or becomes less effective and useful. After age of 35 or 36 or even 40 and then it probably won't matter as much and they should stop hassling you about it, since that "clock" had already expired, more or less.
Don't give into their pressure. Know what is best for you. They expect you to settle down asap and have kids or something, but that would be one of the WORST reasons to just marry, settle down and have a relationship or have sex and have kids.
Don't just jump on the bandwagon and follow the crowd just because everyone else in your family or all of your other friends had or insists that it's the right way, only way or the highway.
Know what you really want to do and pursue your dreams and goals. If family and children was your first priority then yea, sure, go ahead and good luck with it.
BUT, if it is NOT, then you know what your priorities are. And everyone's priorities ARE NOT EXACTLY THE SAME.
Besides there are no absolute guarantees that relationships would last forever anyway.2

Not exactly pressured per say but they do joke "you wanna get yourself a man" or "when are you ever gonna get out and meet men and move out of you parents place" My brothers have made remarks about me being single at my age and not going out to try and meet guys.1
