I always thought I wanted my life to go in the same order and time frame as most people. Graduate college, get married, have kids, But now I am 28 and don't have a marriage prospect in sight. And when I think honestly about it, I'm glad! If i were married I wouldn't have the flexibility to go to grad school in another state and accept any job offer I want. If there were no such thing as a biological clock or social expectations, I would like to be single for quite a while longer. I want to experience life and see how far I can make it own.

Thats what you're feeling right now. Happy being single. Just enjoy it. I guess you havent found the right person for you. And dont worry i have lots of friends still single like you. Some people get married because of the pressure surrounding him. Better work now and save for your future family. Give yourself at least five to seven years from now. By that time Im sure you'll be ready to have a family of your own. :)

Why do we feel that being single is not right. We were born alone, we die alone, the time in between is meant to be spent in the manner that makes our time on earth, the best we can make it. The is no unwritten law that we are "bad people" if we don't get married and procreate. The world is such a great place because we are all individuals. I think that people who are "content within themselves" have the greatest potential of making others happy too! Enjoy your life, if marrying is in your goals, it will happen! Make every day, the first day of the rest of your life.

28 is not an advanced age for marriage. Do not loose heart over such matters. You keep thinking positively. Secondly, lonliness is not good for health. One should be prepared to work hard, nurse those good thoughts, water it, it will blossom.
