    I will be turning 31 this year.

    All of my friends are married will kids..... I am like hell NO!!! LoL I am good over here with my nice clean apartment and my dog. I go over to their place to hang out and it's always messy and dirty. If that's what 'adult life' is like, you can keep it.

    I'm turning 32 in a month.

    I don't mind been in my 30's, it's ok but I figured by now I'd have my life on track. That's what I dislike. I lost my job a few months back, which was the first job in a while I thought had a good career potential, Ive been single for about a year and all but one relationship...

    All of my friends are in relationships,

    married or have kids. It's as if they've all found reasons to live and gave meaning and I'm stuck. Sometimes I want to get a job in another state, change my phone number and start new somewhere. Forget everyone. 😕

    I keep forgetting that I'm 32.

    When people ask me age, my natural response is to say 31. I guess I just don't feel like I'm this age. Sadly 31 I am not and I haven't been for 6 months now.

    I had a hard childhood; no father,

    a young Mom that worked her fingers to the bone to support us...but I she always kept me in sports, to keep me from all the bad in the neighborhood. What did that do for me? It gave me the best pals a guy could ever ask for, these are my brother. Sure, we like to goof around...

    I've reached the medium of 30 something's.

    All I can think about is my mom when she reached this age. She's been gone 10 years now this year (reached 50) and I wonder what she must have felt like at this age. She died of complications from alcohol abuse. I made a decision to stop awhile back but I wonder what fears she...

    I’m 32 years old, and hopelessly lost.

    As my brother would say, much to my ire, “you’ve had s**tty luck.” Yes, Shane, (that’s not his real name), I’ve had s**tty luck. I’m humbled by your discerning wisdom. It’s not my ‘bad luck’ that is my problem—at least I don’t think so? In late 2000...

    I'm 33 and, battling depression,

    and on the verge of a spiritual awakening... I guess. To keep my mind free of dark thoughts, I study spirituality, philosophy, and history. My self esteem feels like it's always just out of reach, and I struggle to have faith to myself. Often I feel like I'm too damaged to enjoy...

       I had read an article previously on the nature of friendships in your 30's.  The premise was that starting friendships in  your 30's was a daunting task, that in the spectrum of things  friendships formed in your 30's were far less meaningful and...

    Is it just me, or does your 30's look a lot

    like your teenage years. I feel like I'm not young enough for some things, but not old enough for others. Anybody else feeling like they're in social limbo?

    but I'm a little lonely. Don't really have any friends. Would love to have some new friends for chatting, or email about anything - deep or trivial
