I am 32,will be 33 and i am still single.I have been single for 2 years,not because i feel traumatic,but because i don`t want to force relationship just because of our age.Of course,i tried, but you can`t force your heart,right?My campus friend are already married with children,some of them even are divorced.I learn from them,not to marry because you don`t want to feel under pressure by your society..just enjoy what you have now,make peace with past,be confident that someday you will meet your soulmate..

Most of them are. At this moment, I don't have any friends though. I'm a loner. It really gets boring sometimes since I work from home... Ugh.

All my closest friends are not yet married, but all of my sisters are. People expected me to get married early because I started having boyfriends when I was still very young. But until now I'm still not married, although I have a long-time boyfriend, the longest I've ever had. Now people are asking when I'll get married!

I didn't marry until I was 30 - I am now 35. There wasn't any particular reason for this, I was just waiting for the right man, basically. Turned out he was American when it happen so I have moved countries! Before I was married, a lot of my friends were and were just starting to have children. At one point I did feel a little left behind, but I had one friend who was still single and she is now my closest friend, as we got closer during that time. But on the whole I would rather have been alone than to have settled for less because I was afraid to be.

90% i would say, after all 30 is a big year, and 30 is the year you should be married at least here in my culture, if you are not, all people around you will start worrying about you, and start helping you out whether you like it all not, pressures will come from all directions, poor 30 something girls.

I am not really agree with you that women tend to marry late nowadays. Many my friends marry early and many of them have children already. But my friends that closed to me, only one has got married, and most of them are not. My friend told me that today trend is whether you marry early or you will not get marry at all. Well, that according to her in my society. Different society will be different.

For the most part more of the people I consider my friends are married. Since I am in my mid 40s now, I am lucky that most of them have been married to the same person now for quite a while as well. I can only think of one or two that my husband and I have around from time to time or talk too that is Single, but all except one of them has kids as well.

One of my best friends is 37, he has never been married, and he has never had a girlfriend. There are also a few single girls among my friends, but most of them are married or divorced. Some of my friends have small children, and others have children that no longer live at home. My husband and I are married, but we don't have any children, and I sometimes I feel that we don't have much in common with the couples who have small children, because their lives have become very different from ours.

Not all, but almost of them get married and have kids. Only two of them are single now, but one of them has boyfriend. So I felt upseted a few years ago. But now I accept it and enjoy my single life until that day I get married.

Most of my friends are either married,married with children,with boyfriends and the ones that are single are the ones i think have the common sense.lol.When we all go out we make sure everyone knows we are all married as that saves a load of men trying their luck as well as us telling them to go away,even though we are married we all have a good time as we are having a girly night.

we cannot marry for marriage.we must marry for love.to me,i will marry a man that i love,and who also loves me.girls usually began to worry when they come to certain age.they fear that nobody will marry her if she gets older.this push her rush into a marriage.many friends of mine do that kind of thing.i think it's dangerous.

We have a few friends that are married, and we are married ourselves. These friends we don't talk to very much anymore but we do keep in touch with the single friends, lol. That sounds kind of odd, I am sure!

There are still lots of friend of mine who are still single until now, even if they are on the right age of marrying, still they chose to be single and planned on marrying later because they say that they are not yet ready, emotionally, physically and financially.
