I'm getting nervous... It feels like all my friends are married or in serious long-term relationships (with a boyfriend who would drive long-distances to be with her and etc.)... Yea... I'm no where near that... I feel the guys who are only interested in me are the players... who I avoid fyi.
Be careful what you wish for, you might get it. Are you friends all happy in their relationships? It might be a bit harder to date as you get older but there are still plenty of single guys for you to meet.
I think it does get a little harder, just because more men at that age are off the market. Though, I think the hardest part is actually what you're living (and what men also go through). Wondering if it will ever happen to you.
You said this "I feel the guys who are only interested in me are the players... who I avoid fyi.' I think that you might miss opportunities just because of that. Not all men are players. They might give that image but if you don't try you'll never know.
The closer a woman gets to being in her mid 30s, the less desirable she becomes to guys that want to have kids. Most guys will want to be together a while first and want more than one kid, so age does start to become a factor.
I think it depends. For me I met better guys at 26 than I used to meet at 21 but I'm never a rule. Maybe try asking your friends and partners if they know anyone who you might get along with? As well as why you might be attraxting the player type so as you work on fixing that issue.
