I was 29 and he was 32.  I’m 31 now and he’s almost 34.  We’ll likely be 32 and 35 when we marry, although might wait until 33 and 36 depending on how the plans shape up.

Ladies please read the original post and see what the OP is ACTUALLY asking. She was asking about meeting men later in life, at her age, not just a general “How old were you?” question. If she ever comes back to read this after 7 months, I doubt she wants to be reading about someone meeting their Fiance at a young age when she asked about being 30 and over, hence the 30something board…

Don’t settle!!  

I’d given up that I would find someone.  I mean seriously heartbreaking sobbing, KNOWING that I’d never find anyone.  Then weeks later, I met my darling husband while we were attending a game convention in Iceland!  I was 33 when I met him and he was 27.  He is so very worth the wait!

@joygirl: We met when I was 28 and he was 31 and were friends for almost a year prior to dating. Now I am 30 and he is 33 and I think we will be engaged around Valentine’s Day. I think 30ish is the perfect time to marry. You really have had time to develop your individuality, career and know what you want from a mate. Be encouraged, these ARE the best years:0)

I was young.. we were 16 when we met. But I firmly believe that everyone has that certain someone out there..and if he’s not the one, then “your one” will show up at the perfect time.

OK, I know this isn’t what you were asking, but everyone out there saying “you will meet someone”…there is a chance you might not and you have to be ready to accept that. Being alone isn’t the worst thing in the world. I’d personally rather be alone, than alone with someone. Or be with someone that makes me miserable everyday (like something one of my friends is dealing with and looking to probably divorce with 3 kids), or just get married to get married and be divorced because it just wasn’t right. Being with someone and settling for less than everything you deserve is hurting the person you chose to settle with and yourself. At 36 I’ve never been engaged, I haven’t been in a relationship really in a few years, and I don’t know if I will. But I’m happy in my life. I’m not 100% sure I’d ever want to be married, but if it happens at some point, it happens, if it doesn’t, I’m OK with that. Now I’ve never been a big kids person, thankfully, but if you are, it’s not like you can’t have a child without a man, either with a donor or adoption. One of my friends had decided long ago if she wasn’t married by the time she was 35 or so she was going to adopt. The biggest thing is life is short, no matter how long some things can be, and it’s too short to settle for being with someone that is less then the “perfect for you” person. They should be someone that makes you happy more than they make you sad. Settling to walk down the aisle due to the fact that you’re a cetain age is stupid. Age is supposed to make you wiser…and being alone actually is quite empowering. Personally I think if I do meet someone, he’s going to be better of and our relationship will be better because I am someone who knows how to take care of herself and knows what she wants in life, so I believe if I do end up in something, I have a better chance of beating the odds on the divorce statistics. Just food for thought. Yeah, breakups suck, and being alone after a long relationship is tough, but you get through it and are stronger (been there) and a better person for not making the mistake.
