After nearly two years of being single I'm starting to think something's wrong.
I'm not sure if there's something wrong with me or if there's something wrong with the dating scene.
My grandmother heckles me constantly telling me that if I don't get a boyfriend now, I'll never be married nor will I have any children. My mother tells me that I'm young and I should be happy dating around. My father doesn't get involved in my relationships because he says the men are never around long.
When I have these type of conversations with my family I normally find it funny. But I'm starting to get worried now that I'm set to be a maid of honor at two weddings early next year and several of my other and not-so-close friends are either engaged, living with a significant other, or having babies.
But not me. And I'm almost 24.
I mean, I've had "friends" for the majority of those two years. And I've had fun most of the time.
I guess I'm close to the age when most folks are talking marriage and kids and co-habitation. I'm not even close. Although I do have a few friends who are older, single and child-less and some that are closer to my age an in the same demographic, I'm really starting to wonder about myself.
Should I be worried?
