25 years old here.
i saw a baby commercial and started cried. i kind of scared myself with that. i never cried because of something so dumb before in my life. before that, i felt anxiety when my friend got married because i felt like i was behind. i couldn't picture myself married with kids. when i saw the commercial i felt like my stomach had a ton of bricks in it, and i got this strong desire to be pregnant.
is this normal? please tell me it happens to everyone at some point but they don't say it because they're afraid of looking like a weirdo?
i feel like my biological suddenly woke the f up and put me in panic mode. why is this even important? i just want to work, watch netflix, and chill.

I feel the same way. Most of my friends are already settled down with kids. One of my friends is on her 4th kid already and she's only 25!
Sometimes I worry that it will never happen for me. I always thought I would be one of the first because I have wanted to settle down for the longest time. Even when all my friends were out partying, I was more interested in staying in and hanging out with my boyfriend or with a friend instead of partying and sleeping around.
Now I am with someone and am hoping that this relationship leads to marriage. I really do love my boyfriend and want to have a family with him. But you just don't know in life.
I do sometimes worry that he will leave me and I'll have to start over again. And I know the dating pool is drying up at my age even. I find most guys are already taken and in serious relationships, if not already married. Sometimes I worry that something is wrong with me, even though I know I am a great person.
I think what you are feeling is completely normal. It's hard to watch friends get married and have kids, while you are sitting there waiting for your turn to come around and it's taking forever!1
