should I feel discouraged for
being 34 and still single?

I like being alone too
but...what about a family?

If you are happy being single, then be single. Don't feel like you need to get married and have a family just because that is something that works well for others. You need to do what makes you happy in life.

Nothing wrong with that, that's right as long as your happy thats what matters. Most of my family all are married and/or have kids. I'm not married nor do I have kids and I'm 25! I'm just as happy as they are.

Like Sephira said: Do what makes you happy. I want to grow up playing video games ( Ive gotten pretty popular on youtube) I told my parents about LCS (Gaming tournaments) and they said you should grow up like regular people (Marrying, regualar job) I just convinced them to let me live the life I want to live, even if it makes them happy or not.

Being single is just as much work as marriage. Single you only have to answer to yourself.

34? You remind me of a worker at this place I know... Except he has a girlfriend and a few kids. I'm not sure if they're HER kids though :/

But if you're happy single you should stay single. If you wan a family try find a lucky lady and start a family wherever ya wernt :)

Nothing wrong with being single at any age.There is a lot of people that r single that r over 30,and if u want a family that go out and find someone special if u don't then don't

No, but if you're spending as much time as I am on this site, you really need to get a life though. With that, I'm signing out.

make a list of all the things you really want to do and make them happen. most people don't and they find themselves married and having kids and buying a home. And now u need to make other things happen. Look for a person who wants a lot of the same out of life as u do and be sure you discuss the "kids or not" thing. Good luck young man

there are pros & cons to everything - being single means you can eat pb & j for dinner and drink milk from the container, but not have anyone to come home to. being married is having a constant partner to share your life with, but no marriage is perfect and you both have to compromise at some point. if you are lonely and want to meet people - go to places you like and you will meet people with the same interests - a museum, a poetry reading, volunteer! if you want someone to come home to - get a pet - they never judge you.

Nope. Enjoy the freedom. There's no age limits on when you meet some one. It basically boils down to what makes you happy. Even as I get older I am still learning...it doesn't pay to please others. Just my opinion.
