People over 30 that are not taken - something wrong with them?Page 14 of 37    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37)
when a 'life' sentence in prison only really equates to about 7 years.... are you even surprised that 'until death do us part' has a half life to it ?

Hand me the red flag, I am collecting them as I leave. I will take this one, the one for never being married, the one for not having kids, the one for not living in a house (a condo is quite permanent enough !) and another for not dancing, one for being short, and I will put a deposit on the flag for being 45 and not married as well.

men over 30 have manyt reasons for being single, i had a bad relationship, lost my partner my kids, through no major fault of my own, not to say i wasnt influential!!!
but its harder for over 30's guys to get out and meet people again, im agraphobic so cant speak for everyone, but i met people at work and in clubs etc, my chances of meeting anyone now are down to 00.01%, but im happy i have facebook to have old froiiends, and possibly new ones hint!!!!!
and maybe someone will givew me a reason to leave my house, but dont use sex, id prefer cuddles!!!!
though im not saying i hate sex lol!!!!!!
ill get my coat.... wait im not going anywere and im wearing a coat, this is all wrong..

Maybe he spent eight years with the wrong woman and is now single looking for the right woman and is a wonderful, caring, funny, cute, fun, outgoing man/father/potential boyfriend/husband who has figured out since becoming single exactly who he is and what he wants out of life. Hmmm, this guy sounds familiar to me! ;)

Not necessarily. I would rather be single than be stuck in a bad relationship.

I agree with outdoors. There's nothing wrong with being single at any age.

Too many possibilities why one could be single at any age, to judge or assume there's something wrong with them. A lot of people say it's a 'small world'..lol..but it's not.
It's hard to find the one who truly gets you, in such a large sea of fish.

^^^Luckily, we don't have to get that from a relationship as it's available in many other places. We all have friends, family, community and even pets in some cases. If we get it from a relationship too, well that's just a nice bonus.

I'm a woman over the "magic" age. Yes, there are many things that many seem to view, as wrong with me, but that just makes my fishing easier.lol

I've only NOT been in a relationship of some sort, for about 2-2 1/2 years total...the longest stretch being just over one year. That being said...I DO notice a difference on some level, between people who've been in relationships and those that have been single for long periods of time.

Maybe its just my experiences or perception, but I think the people who've been primarily in relationships tend to be more giving and more capable of compromise.

Then you have to learn to be alone.


Why?

What's the point?

I can be fine being by myself...I prefer to be in a LTR though.
I don't go looking for them when I'm single... I just enjoy myself...yet someone always comes along that interests me and poof! Not single.

I've only been in four serious relationships though totaling 25 years then a few FWB's in between....

I don't feel I NEED to be in a relationship anymore than I feel I need to be alone.... I take things day by day, if something is working I don't seek change. When it breaks I try to fix, then discard if I can't fix.

...I'm pretty satisfied with my love life....now my financial life... Meh...THAT could use some help.
Now that I'm getting older my propensity for risk is lowering, especially after the last fall...I've had a few!

Well I just hit the big 45, I've never been married, have no kids, I just keep collecting those red flags, but I don't think there is anything horribly wrong with me. I do find it different dating in my 40's then in my 20's, more men wanted to settle down in the younger years but I wanted a career an edcuation first so I waited, now it's not so easy, but I keep trying to find that special someone for me.

Well I have been single, more or less, for atleast 10 yrs. I have dated and tried to work things out in the 1st of my relationships since I moved to the city I live in now, but there was just no connection. We both tried to work things out and then we ran into problems of her wanting several kids and me not being home all the time because of work etc.. Just was not a good match.

The other was there was no match at all. We would have been better off just being friends and to go out bowling, shooting pool etc...

So I am 38 almost work full time at the same job for over 10 yrs and well just can't seem to find the right match. I have had 2 meetups with 2 different females but there wasn't anything I guess there either. Maybe more on their part than mine. ??

So I figure I have nothing but more time... maybe I will find love somewhere.

Ahhh that brings me to the song by Saigon Kick
"Love is on the way......." :)

Oh god, are you serious? If a guy )or a girl) is still single at the age of 30 it is simply because they are. Why they are could be a for million reasons and who is everyone else to simply guess what the reson is and pass judgement on them?

Ohh, come on JP1111,
Get on the psychobabble carnival ride. Where great torques of inconvenient truth, tore at the guts of victim me. Hey, there may not be a million reasons for self-doubt, but it all goes grotesquely distorted, when strangers usher you into their hall of mirrors. Having fun yet??

I can't believe anyone really thinks that much about these 'dating rules' ie no one over 30. For me, it's not that these things don't cross my mind, I just know it all goes out the window when I meet someone..


I'm with you on that one. I can't imagine who made up those stupid arbitrary rules, anyway.

That's kinda where I am. In my 20s I was always so self conscious, so worried about everything, had low self esteem etc. Looking back it's no wonder I couldn't develop a healthy long-term-relationship with a man.

It wasn't until I was 30 that I finally started to figure myself out. Now I know who I am, I know what I want, I've got goals and I'm on the way to meeting them. I've traveled and even lived abroad. I've learned and grown so much. I feel like I'm finally ready to find the right person to join me in building an amazing life.

It is hard though, because for every single over 30 like us who were just 'late bloomers' as it were, there are all too many older singles who have just stagnated. And it's been hard for me to maintain a positive attitude while dating & trying to weed through all the Mr. Wrongs. But at least I know that I'm pretty happy even when it's just me.

I am posting this because it was said on another message board that if a man is single and over the age of 30 and good looking, there has got to be some character flaw or some reason why he is not taken....

What is everyone elses general view on this? Do you find that there has got to be "something" wrong if someone looks in every other way a good catch, yet still hasn't settled down?


People have said a lot of things over the years. At one time it was widely believed that the world was flat. Just because people say that something is true doesn't mean that it's actually true.

Everyone has a different story. Until you get to know a specific person, most of what you think you know about this person will be hearsay and supposition.
