How was it being an oldmaid?

I'm in the age of 30's and yet enjoying life being single. I have planned of having my own family soon, but im still unlucky having it.. so what i do is keep believing and think positively that it will soon come into realization. I'm only worried about my age, because i know that it'll be difficult for my body condition once i really wanna have a baby. Sometimes i wonder, what if i'll be an oldmaid? I think i'll be saddened if it happened. Though i have my freedom and no one can prohibit me in anything i wanna do.. its still good to have a family of your own than living alone.

Keep on enjoying life and if a suitable marriage mate comes along, great. Find a good person, as there is nothing worse than being married to the wrong person. keep the faith and make the most of whatever comes your way. all the best!

One of my friends got married at age 38 years old. Her baby girl was born when she was aged 39 years old. She didn't imagine there would be enough time to fit in having her second baby. Her baby girl was 3 months old when she felt one well. She was just off on a vacation so she did a pregnancy test that was positive. Her baby boy was born when she was 39 years old almost age 40 years old. Another of my friends is the same age as me. She had her second baby born when she was 40 years old. If you get married you could try straight away to get pregnant. It is possible to get pregnant between ages 30 and 40 years old. After age 40 years old it can be challenging to get pregnant. I had my second baby when I was 34 years old and my third child when I was 36 years old. Good luck getting married and having a baby or two babies.

been an old maid sometimes is good and some times is not, its good bec if someone i use to be alone when they are young, but when they got age, or they late year they think that before they have a partner in life, bec. sometimes who take care of them is there newphew, and sometimes they put in the olden archers,

You're right.. that is one thing to be saddened about. It seems like you're nothing, when you brought there and only waits for your time=(

My friend got married last year, at the age of 37. ;) She has given up on thoughts of matrimony when she's 35. Instead of "hunting" for a husband she started travelling all over the country and getting her studio condo instead. And now, she's married to my husband's friend, and we didn't even put them up together. Life is really full of surprises. We just have to be ready to go with the flow as it happens. I don't think it will make someone less of person whether she's married or single, or if she's got kids or not. God have plans for us; it may not be what we want but it definitely is what's best for us.

precisely, sometimes we only get emotionally affected that leads us to worries.. But I've also thought of it that even i'm single, i just simply go with the flow, and keep believing positively for whatever God has planned to me. Thanks=)

i am also 30.i was married but there no any change while seeing a single person and a married person. i think age will not bring any kind of difference.its all depend the way you think.If we are having positive attitude in our mind we will be young at the age of sixty also.

I am 33 but I choose not to be bothered whether or not I'll be single forever. Still I have not closed my mind that I may possibly get married or have children. I do enjoy being single and I am used to being solitary, I wouldn't mind being solitary as long as I can get my goal to meditate for longer periods. Things would then be different if I have a family of my own and somehow I don't want my peace to be disrupted. This doesn't mean I am not one to socialize, maybe it's just my temperament, as I feel freer with some moments of solitude.

You're right, you don't have to mind it that much while you're also thinking of your goal. Because when the time comes that you are about to marry and have your own family, you can give them a brighter future through the help of all your achievements.
