I'm 29 and still single. I am in no way feeling any pressure at all. But my family and friends are. Every time I go to a reunion, the hot seat has always been reserved for me. I have always been the topic of their discussion. I have always been asked why I am still not tying the knot. The answer is simple, I haven't met the guy that GOD had set for me to marry. How about you? Are you feeling pressured for being single when everybody is married?

don't mind them. you're still young anyway. Don't get carried away with the pressure. We know they really mean well but it's true, maybe you haven't met the right guy that God had set for you. Just enjoy being single and maybe they would realise that you don't need to get married cuz you're happy anyway. It pays to wait that's for sure. God has beautiful plans for you. btw, I got married at 35.I have a wonderful husband and a beautiful daughter. I had a wonderful time when I was still single, so can you. Goodluck!!!

Wow! That's amazing! I think I'm gonna be just like you. I will definitely wait for that perfect guy whom GOD had chosen for me to spend the rest of my earth life with. And I will enjoy being single first ( while I still can) I don't really mind, it's just that I don't want the idea that they keep on worrying about me. I, myself am not worried at all. But it hurts sometimes to see these people I love who pity me cuz of my situation. Anyway, that's them. I can't change that fact. But you know what? I really am very happy being single.

My fiance and I just got engaged last December. We had been together for about 6 years when he proposed. I knew he was the one that I wanted to spend eternity with and was in no rush to jump into marriage. We got along great and are happy together. My parents and family as well as his we pushing us after about 2 and a half years of being together to get married. I finally got to the point where I told them all not to worry about it,it would happen with time and to just back off pretty much. Now that we are engaged and I have not set a date, again, I am in no major rush to tie the knot, they keep asking everytime I see them, when's the date? when are you getting married? It gets so annoying. I'm to the point again where I am ready to tell them the same again. I'm sure in due time, you too will meet the mand God intended for you to marry. Until then, good luck with the family.

I know exactly how that feels. It really is annoying that everyone seemed to pressure you to get married when you know for a fact that it's not the time yet. Well i too have a 6 yr romantic relationship with someone but sad to say it didn't pursue. During that relationship of ours both of our parents are pressuring us to settle down. His dad even called me up just to say that they will visit my family for the traditional "pamamanhikan" wherein his folks will come over to our house and ask for my hands in marriage. Oh well, I freaked out after that call. But I do know I'll find that perfect guy someday. In God's perfect time. Congratulations on your engagement. May GOD bless the both of you.
