I'm just not marriage material and I'm pretty sure that's just who I am. I'm more of a loner than most, and my romantic relationships often make me uncomfortable. Hell, when I "played house" as a kid, I'd rather be a dog or cat than a family member.
While I'm realizing I just am who I am, I still feel inadequate all the time: when friends get married and have babies, during most conversations - which revolve mostly around those two things, at events that are only couples, etc.
Does anyone else feel this way? Especially other people over 30.

If having kids and being together with someone is actually something you'd like and you're uncertain of whether you are missing out on something you'd value and feel is a part of self-fulfillment, then I can see how that would make someone feel a bit hesitant about their current state.
Not inadequate though, just uncomfortable with things "not going the way they want". Of course, if they are actually against the idea of having children whom they have to raise and stuff, obviously it doesn't make sense for them to feel bad about the choice they are consciously making.1
