This must be more for your age generation. Mine its normal to not be in a relationship and to just be dating around.
You made some good points. Although I do think it varies on a persons experience and desires. I'm 29 and most of the people around me at my age are coupled like you said, but I don't feel isolated at all.I'm not ready to be in a relationship because I want to give my craft my undivided attention. I feel like a relationship would jeopardise its success.Now, I could be totally wrong but that's besides the point. I'm happy being single with a random sexual encounter every now and again to release a charge and get back to what I love doing.
@Durrelle You're right, it really does depend based on one's experience and desires. For me, I know my 20s were terrible because I was surrounded by that issue of being isolated while my friends were coupling off, yet no one showed any interest in me. Yes, I had college, and eventually a job, but neither really made me happy, so I was left insecure and depressed most of the time. I don't do flings or one night stands, so that would not have made me feel any better. Thankfully, as I got older and got a stable career, re-prioritized my life, and got away from my peers? I focused on other things outside of trying to get in a relationship. It's funny, most of these commenters are saying 30s are the worse age range to be single: and yes, if you are trying to find a relationship? Yeah, it sucks. Not even going to deny that. Especially considering most people did get coupled off in their 20s. But if you're secure enough in your life not to stress over being single or finding someone by some deadline? It's not the end of the world! I'm not trying to start a family or get married. One day I just want a happy, long term relationship. So for me, I'm not stressing over a certain age to find someone.
Yeah good for you :) that's another good point, these deadlines people hang over themselves... it makes no sense lol
I disagree. Very few people I know got married before 25 (my parents gen is another story). Being single up to age 35 is considered pretty normal.
@zagor Well the discussion was more so based on being single and feeling isolated, not so much about marriage.I agree that being single up to 35 is quite normal now, but not everyone is happy 'being' single around people who are.
Wow I'm in your same boat with things. But like I asked in my previous question in the past, people have children... they don't wait.. their mentaility is that if you wait to have childrne you will NEVER have them! So they have children anyway because they consider spreading their ugly genes more important than being able to afford them! The governement will take care of them through welfare! They can work menial jobs! Sex is too awesome! Especially unprotected sex to deny that from my body! ... My peers are already having children! That's not fair! I need to hurry up too!
@SueAnon84 its called idiocracy
Fucking thank you This is exactly what I’m going through
interesting. I personally don't think 20's is the worst age to be single, in fact more people think it's good cause your young and still trying to find your place in the world. Most people think settling down in your 20's is not a good idea and is too fast.
@BrittBratt2416 thats what id say too, but the number of upvotes to this insecure nonesense either says were wrong or that SueAnon84 is right and this site is riddled with ambitionless "settlers"...
You shouldn't have to marry at all its a life choice, it's not mandatory.
@Midnight_Kiss I'm speaking to those who want to marry - not to those who don't want marriage
what happens after 50?
@midnightmoon05 Men get pickier and don't want to date older women. They usually want to date girls straight out of highschool or college and barely 20 years old. Not saying all guys do this but a lot do.
@midnightmoon05 divorce 💀💀💀
@Midnight_Kiss It isn't best for the kids.You are talking about exceptions.
@BrittBratt2416 I believe it and it’s disgusting that pervy “old” men like that
@Midnight_Kiss thank god its not mandatory
I agree. The later you have a kid the more chance of having a retard.
Wrong. If you want kids, marry before 25. You’re lucky to even get a one time fucking at your age sweetheart let alone marriage 🖕🏻
Most people have kids and never marry.. 👀...

Do you have trouble?
The sadness truth
But if you are in college, there are a zillion opportunities...
I said 18-25 lol. And opportunities aren't always a good thing.
I don't know if you'll say that when you get to where there aren't any.
@zagor: College is indeed the best opportunity to meet women.
*the persons life is infilled.
Your aunt is a smart lady, there’s no reason you should be your age and still single.
Don't listen to that bullshit! You're still young and 30 isn't A DEATH SENTENCE contrary to what some people think. Don't succumb to a lot of weird outside pressure to settle. Find a good one. Be selective. You have time.
I’m 23 and I have tried less attractive guys but they’re never attracted to me Ya I did accept that I won’t be getting married
@hsshannah96 Unless you are in the lower 25 percentile for your age, at age 23, which is close enough to your peak desirability, I find it hard to believe that there are not plenty of guys slightly below average would be interested in you. Instead, I can believe that, like most women, you believe any guy that is not in the top 20% as below average in looks. And therefore, by your standards, less attractive. drhelen.blogspot.com/.../...-listen-to-female.html
Im interested. in the opinions of others. I already know what I think.
Sorry. I'm a Virgo = opinionated, critical, annoying. There's just that something in me that doesn't mind been single. I happen to be the one sunsign that is most comfortable in solitude.
If its about peer pressure its best to get rid of these people
LOL, my equipment is working just fine.
Well us guys have tongues ane toys and they have pills
No issues with that at all
I'm 57 ... Worried about that myself but I find it's all about the woman!! Passion and foreplay is key !
Above 25 years !
I’m 23 and all my friends are getting married and having kids
That’s like the ideal time tbh
@hsshannah96 Where do you live, Iran?
@zagor no I’m in Minnesota in America But I used to live in California
Anyways, it’s hard to see everybody else getting that experience besides me
men mid to late 60's*
Why? Who date these 50+ old men?
@kim45456 - That's exactly why that would be the worst age to be single 😂 But depending on how young they look, a lot of women may actually be more attracted to them than younger guys because of the mature look. Women typically stop being attracted to older men when the men look around dying age.
But noone like older people. Everyone want hot and young people
@kim45456 - You'd be surprised at how many women like older guys. The opposite is true for men. Not a lot of men like older women. It's a rarity.
Yeah i know woman like older men but not like 9 years age difference. Max. 5-7 years older. So dont get it why a a 18-21 years old girl would date 30 + years old men
@kim45456 - There's not really a limit when it comes to these things. There may be one for you, but women's preferences vary so much. I think around 10 years difference is more common in women that prefer young and older men. But if they prefer older guys, the difference could be drastic. Because if a man doesn't look like he's in the process of dying, more women could still be attracted to him. Especially if he's conventionally attractive, has a high social status, or is financially stable. And of course, these are subjective because of the different tastes and lifestyles.
It is minority. Many women dont like huge ag3 difference. I am sure there a woman who would date really old people but tgat is minority and they are godl diggers. How often do you see a 20 years old dating 35+
You are exagerating
@kim45456 - I was never arguing that this was the majority. This is a minority. My whole point is that women will date older men more than young men will want to date older women.
Oh get it but i also dont understand that. Do men reject older girls after he learns about her age? How does tgat work it
No, men aren't really focused on the number. It's just that men are attracted to younger attributes. As women age, they start to lose those attributes that most guys like.
Would you date someone older than you if you are attracted to her?
I've never dated but I think I wouldn't go over like 3-4 years. But I'd prefer to be older than my girlfriend.
That’s because men don’t want women your age.
@justme1171 why you say that? why men dont want women my age? what is worng of beign 48 well you will get to that age also in several years for now
Honey, men value youth, beauty and fertility. All three of which decline drastically after age thirty. I don’t even touch women over 25 no matter how old I get, most men aren’t as picky as I am however, any well established older man with looks and personality and money will choose a young woman over someone his own age. Just saying
@justme1171 wow you are some sexist douche. I dont even want to date if a guy turns out to be like you even if that guy is around my age You are indeed picky. Noone is perfect and it seem u are looking for a perfect woman. "I dont even touch woman over 25 no matter how old you get? That sounds like a complete stupidity and it makes you look like a total pig. Sorry bit it is the truth
You think is the first time I’ve heard this from a woman? Definitely not. I get called sexist, misogynistic, xenophobic, pig, etc CONSTANTLY by women because I have no problem telling women what pieces of shit they are. Women like you just hate hearing the truth
@justme1171 see even the word shit is a total disrespect.. Sorry for allthe woman u date you.
@justme1171 probably for a good reason lol!
sadly my dear he is not wrong, a lot men punish us for getting older and loosing our beauty. We're suppose to stay 20 and beautiful forever while they can get old, fat, balding, etc.
I think it is funny that men say that. 48 was about the time more men took notice of me. Very odd to me at the time. I think some men would like to think that women are getting less attention but it isn't necessarily true.
@sejla I agree
@justme1171 I guess you will never grow old fat and bald and will be young forever. NAHHHHHHHHHHHH
@kitty71 and that’s fine with me. Better single that with any woman these days
