When you’re in your 30s, you have all sorts of friends who are now either engaged or married with kids. You hear a lot of conversations that start with, “I’m getting married!” to “You should seriously think of settling down now.” These are the years when your friends will be giving you a detailed insight into how a married life actually is and how it changes you as a person. And here you are – single, independent and extraordinarily happy with life. It’s a very common misconception that if you’re a single woman in your 30s, you must be miserable. But only you know it isn’t true. And at this age, you don’t even wish to prove people wrong with their petty thoughts – since you are no longer the person you were in your 20s. You no longer have the same insecurities. You now have enough life experience to know what you want out of life and especially, what you don’t want in your life. Your 30s are the years when you are more secure and confident than ever.You don’t have to rush just because it’s right according to the society. Gone are the times when you let people make decisions for how you lived your life. Being single in your 30s doesn’t mean you weren’t with someone you thought you’d spend the rest of your life with. It also doesn’t mean you’ll stay single for the rest of your life too. But for now, as long as it takes to find the right one, you’re single and life is easy. It’s good to come home post work, close the door behind you and spend some alone time. It’s good to cook for a single person and pamper yourself with treats every now and then. Being a single woman in your 30s can also mean you are trying to get to know men of different tastes. It could also mean you have no intention to look for a man until you feel truly ready. What it definitely doesn’t mean is that you’re unhappy. Whoever thinks you are, doesn’t know your life story. You could be a financially successful lady with a wonderful career or a woman who chooses to stay single for the coming years. You could have a bunch of supportive friends and a family that is very protective of you. Don’t ever let anyone tell you how being single in your 30s is quite a dull way to lead life because it isn’t.You’re the author of your story and only you have the authority to write your life story. So make it a good one.
