I was 28 when I met my Fiance, I’m 30 now.  We have both said that if our relationship together didn’t work out we didn’t see ourselves getting back in the dating pool.  However, I know that I would because I don’t want to be alone forever.  I am just more content in staying single for a while than I was previously.  While neither of us are planning on ending our relationship things happen sometimes.  But I guess that remains to be seen.

I’m sorry about your problems though.  Just don’t give up.  I believe there is someone out there for everyone.  Some people just met that person later in life than they planned.

When I was your age (29… almost 30) I was engaged to a guy who I thought would be a good husband.. but it didn’t feel RIGHT… however, when I said I’d like to talk about wedding dates, I found out he was cheating on me with a co-worker.


I thought I’d never find someone again and dreaded starting over.


Fast forward… right after I turned 34, I reconnected with “the one that got away”… a guy I knew when I was a teen who was head over heels for me but I was too dumb to do anything about it. We lost touch and I’d looked for him for a few years not long before we reconnected. Shortly after I gave up looking, I joined a dating site and within a week he found me on there.  We’ve been together since. I”m 35.. we will be married in February 2012.. I will be 36 and he will be just shy of 36.  Trust me… it was worth the wait and I”m so glad the first bozo cheated:)

I was 31. At 29,

I became a single mom to an infant and I was terrified that the good ones were already married. I stayed single for 18 months, healed and go to know myself again. I met FH on a blind date and never looked back. He’s 10 years older than me. If I had known that relationships could be that good, I would never had wasted 10 years with my ex. Life’s too short to settle. Good luck!

I was 19 and he was 20.  We met through my roomate at the very beginning of my sophomore year of college (his junior year).  I wasn’t even really looking for a relationship at that point in my life, but I ended up realizing (very quickly) that I didn’t want to be without him.  We’ve done a lot of growing up together, and there’s still much to come.  I really look forward to it!  I still wonder at how lucky I am to have found him.         

We got married 5 years later at 24 and 25.

I was 19 when we first met and he was 28, his family was friends with my stepdad’s family, and I just happened to be in Ohio where he lived during the summer and my cousin wanted us to meet because she thought we would hit it off.  We went on a couple of dates while I was there and both liked each other at that point, but I lived in Kansas and him in Ohio so being almost 1000 miles apart and neither of us really in a position to want to be in a serious long distance relationship at that point of our lives we decided to just be friends and get to know each other better.  Somewhere about a year later we kind of lost contact when I got a boyfriend and was in a relationship with him for about 2 1/2 years, when I was back in the town that he lived in a year or so after that we came back in contact again but he had a girlfriend then and ended up being with her for about 3 years.  LOL After his ex-gf and him had broken up he asked my cousin about me, but I was in a relationship then and we were talking about getting married so he figured it was useless by that point.  A year or so after that point I found him on Facebook and added him as a friend and we talked some and I found out he had moved to Illinois because his company had transferred him (so that made us only about 500 miles away from each other, instead of 1000) and we got reacquainted somewhat through Facebook but I was in a relationship at that point that ended up being very bad and abusive and once I got out of that he contacted me on Facebook and wanted to make sure I was okay and seeing if I needed anything and gave me his phone number and said to give him a call or text him sometime.  So a few months later we ended up talking all the time and realizing we had so much still in common and we got along so great and there was still something there that was there all of those years ago, so we ended up getting together just before Christmas of 2010 and we just got engaged last week (only about 6 1/2 months together before he proposed)…I just turned 29 and he is 38…we both came close to getting married to the wrong people, but boy am I glad I waited and didn’t do that!  We have both said we have just had that feeling since the moment we got back in contact that this was the one that was meant to be…lol and we’ve had so many discussions on how different our lives could be right now had we made a different choice 10 years ago when we met for the first time, but we both feel it’s better that it happened this way and that that gave us time to have some fun, grow up, get a little more stable in our lives, find out what we do and don’t want in a relationship all of that kind of stuff so I’m really glad that it worked out this way.   I agree with the others posts about don’t settle for anything, and it is never too late in life to find that perfect one for you!
