Ever since my friends turned 30 they cried about all of the things they didn't have. They're single and have no significant other.
I guess there's nothing worse than the reality setting in that either you may never be a parent or you will be a old parent when you actually do have a kid.
The reality of being over 40 and having ur first kid is a painful one.
I didn't understand their distress until now that I am closing in on that age I can now see (they're 32 and 33 now).
I already accomplished some of those things however.

Yeah the changes are real. In your thirties you tend to measure yourslef against the others that are doing better and start thinking about the choices you made. You start thinking more critically and aim for financial stability and a corporate future, dont get me wrong most people do those things in their early 20's but in the 30's that intensifies.0

It's not just about kids. Not everyone wants kids. I don't and never have, but the last couple years before I met my boyfriend I was getting tired of being single because it didn't offer the lifestyle I craved. I am much happier being home most Friday nights watching Netflix and doing yard work on Saturday afternoons than I was partying every weekend. But being single you get lonely if you stay home all the time.0
