nuttybuddy Posted June 22, 2008 Share Posted June 22, 2008 Hello, I think one of the main reasons why I wasn't willing to let go of my terrible bf was because I am getting old and I'm getting less hopeful about meeting the one. I mean, seriously. I'm 33. I'm competing with all the women out there who are between the ages of 23 and 33. It's hard. I feel like there are so few guys left who are going to be single (never married) and around my age--preferably only a few years older than me. It's especially tough to meet a guy in my line of work cuz my job is really demanding and I'm in it at least for the next few years. (And no, there's no option to switch jobs because it's the career I strived to get.) I mean, I love my job, it's just that I don't want to be a spinster. I want a family. The crazy thing is, I don't think I get attracted to guys who aren't in my line of work. So, I would prefer if I met someone at work, but because work is so demanding, there's really no room for romance. I guess I'm writing this cuz I'm scared that I may never meet that guy. And even if I were to meet him at work, there's no way I can start a family while working in such a demanding job. My ex calls me from time to time and he keeps mentioning how old he's getting (he's my age) because he feels his body cannot keep up as it used to. How does THAT make me feel? I'm practically 8 months older than him even though we're the same age. I almost want to slap him for mentioning age to me. I can't help but wonder if he's trying to get empathy from me, or if he's trying to insinuate that he needs to find a mate soon and settle down but at the same time implying that he's glad that he's not attached to an old fart like me. aaarrrrrgh. I donno.... on the grand scale of things, I could say, who cares? Why should I make marriage such a high priority in life? But I guess, I want to experience it. And I don't want to be a left field statistic of someone who marries finally in her 40's. Ugh. (No offense to those who got married so late. If it makes u feel any better, I'm treading the same road.) Ya know, I'm not ugly I don't think. I had plenty of guys like me in the past. It's just that I've always been selective and now it's come to this. Link to comment
