What I meant is that at 18, you are still likely to find someone who has marriage in mind even if it's a few years away, but at age 35, the odds are much more against that.
maybe in a small rural town in the midwest or south.. Try to come to NYC and tell me how many 18 year old girls are married.

Maybe it's because I live in the South, and things are somewhat different, but this is what I notice. I know alot of people who are getting married and having children by the age of 25. I just found out someone I knew from years ago is 23 years old and engaged, to his 23 year-old girlfriend.

My short story: When to college, got overwhelmed, later had medical problems, took time off from school, went back to school and now I'm about to graduate. What does this have to do with anything?

I'm 25 and the dating scene, has dwindled alot. I won't date anyone under 23 at this point in my life. I'm not in my 30's, but I could understand where the OP is coming from. I'm 25 and I am having trouble with the singles scene.

I don't understand how hitting your 30's automatically makes the phone stop ringing or makes one suddenly unattractive and unmarketable, unless you are doing something to contribute to your failure. Seriously, I hear people in their 20's complain about how "old" they're getting. Give me a break. When you come across as a fuddy duddy, you're going to lose your mojo, no matter how young or "old" you are.
