  • Wedding: May 2011

We met through friends that were dating.  I met my best girlfriend while in college.  I moved about 60 miles away to my home town/the big city.  She remained at college but met a boy during a concert and continued a long distance relationship with him for a year.  They were both around 30 when they met.  About a year after they met they had a halloween party at his house.  She told me she wanted to set me up with a friend of his.  We didn’t stop talking the rest of the night.  About a year and a half after that they got married. . . and now he and I are planning ours.

If there’s one thing I learned from the whole thing is that it really does happen when you stop looking.  For me it was pretty literal.  In the months before that party I had informed all my girlfriends that it was their job in life to find a husband for me.  The day of the party I told my friend that I was done looking and was going to focus on other things.  Later that same day I met “the one.”

I understand your concerns as a 30 year old who lives in New York. I met my Fiance in my building. It was very muc like the TV show ‘FRIENDS’ he lived in the apt downstairs from mine and my roommates and I became friendly with their apt and the rest is history. I was 29 when we started dating and we are both 30 now and planning a wedding for next year.  

There are definitel aton of good ones left out there over 30. Based on my NYC dating experiences, I think there are far more of them in Brooklyn than Manhattan, but maybe I’m just biased 🙂

He was my undergrad advisor in college. Fast forward several years (after my graduation), we totally randomly met up on the street while I was out grabbing coffee, he was out grabbing lunch. I stopped him and we chatted and I went back to my office and fired off an e mail asking him if he would like to get a drink sometime. He responded yes in like 10 minutes lol, we met up 3 days later for drinks, have been together ever since!

There are def good men over 30 still available!

I was living in Los Angeles at the time and he was there visiting a friend.  We both happen to be from Pittsburgh so his friend introduced us.  We dated long distance NYC to LA for 6 months before I moved here!  He was 30 when we met and living in New York City.  There are still great guys available here!  Dont believe all the hype!

I used to be totally embarrased to say where we met but after being together for over 2 years, I am totally ok with it now.  We met on Craigslist!!  Yes, ladies…good ol’ Craigslist!  LOL…   I just make a joke of it now….I say I was looking for a couch and found him instead!

I love hearing all of these stories! They’re great!

My husband worked with my brother and used to play golf with him all the time. I lived with my brother for a period of time, and he told me he used to get all excited when he saw my car was there when they got back from golfing. He would always come in when my brother invited him in for a beer just to see me.

Don’t believe the stats – I think there are great guys still out there! In fact, the hubby has a friend who is now 31. He was dating a girl for 5 years, and they had talked about getting engaged after she was finished w/ grad school. That day came and she dumped him for another guy :o( I love this friend too…one of the sweetest guys and anyone would be lucky to end up with him! So there are some great guys still out there without a ton of baggage!

I’m 34 and I met my fiance on eHarmony.  He’s 41 and a really terrific guy!  You have plenty of time – don’t worry about it.  You’ll meet the right one for you when you least expect it.

I met my guy at a speed dating event. I was 39 and he was 40. I was not attending as a participant (it’s my friend’s business and I was working the event), but one look at Fiance and it was all over for me. I thought dating in my 30s was easier than 20s. Guys were more serious and ready to settle down (and those who weren’t were easier to spot). Don’t give up hope! 30 is nowhere near too old!!

I’m 37 (and in NYC, too!) we met on eHarmony.  I went out with a lot of frogs before I met my prince!  He is exactly who I want (and need) in my life, but he is not at all the person who I would have expected.
