I'm depressed.. I'm gonna turn 30 and be single!
It's hard to find the right man!
When I was 18 and met my ex's parents they were both 36 and had a little 18 month old girl... At the time I thought they were both hot... And young and fun!
But here I am now at 29... I'm single... And I feel like its all over... Like I will never find someone... Like I've ended up alone... Like my biological clock is ticking... Like I don't have long left before my looks deteriorate (even tho everyone days I look 21)...
What is wrong with me?
Are my worries valid?
Maybe it's cos everyone I know my age is getting married and having kids!
Is is my biological clock in grave danger! Is it now or never? All my friends are having babies now

Look, the "average" age for marriage in the U. S. is 26, so you are only slightly behind the curve. Secondly, I'm not going to lie and say, "Oh, you can have kids later." That's a lie, you need to be getting on that bus, but you still have a couple of years.
If you really want someone, remember that the old adage, "even a bad love is better than no love" is also a lie. You still have time to meet someone, get married, and do all those things, but at the same time you need to examine yourself. Is marriage and children really what you want? If it is, what compromises are you willing to make? Are you being honest with yourself about what you want? What do you expect from a man? Is that reasonable?

See, this is what I hate about society. It tells you that if you don't get married by a certain age you're old, unwanted, or your biological clock is ticking. It's such bullshit. I've gone through the same thought process many times even though I'm only 22. I always wonder if I'll get married or find someone to spend the rest of my life with before I'm a certain age. And, honestly, you aren't going to end up alone forever. You still have until your mid-late 30's to find someone, and that's still a lot of time. Hang in there, all of us feel the pressure as we get older.0
