What are the reactions when you are still single in your mid-thirties? Supreeta Singh June 7, 2017 Supreeta Singh June 7, 2017 Single by choice, single and happy, single and not ready to compromise…. well, why not? 14 repliesSupreeta SinghJune 7, 2017 14 comments Anonymous July 13, 2017 - 10:22 am Amit Shankar Saha June 8, 2017 - 8:55 am When will you marry? Do you have someone whom you are hiding? Why are you not marrying? How will you live in your old age? Who will look after you? Should we see someone for you? And so on… they don’t understand that someone can be single and is not ready to compromise. SupreetaSingh June 8, 2017 - 8:55 am very well said. loved your thought. completely agree with you mira. thats the trouble. most often what i see around me does not motivate me to get married anyways! SupreetaSingh June 8, 2017 - 8:55 am hahaha! absolutely! “who will look after you in your old age” takes the cake away! SupreetaSingh June 8, 2017 - 8:55 am well said. but more than putting oneself above others – marriage should happen when you are ready to commit and are in love… otherwise whats the point? SupreetaSingh June 8, 2017 - 8:55 am hahaha! so true. reasons can differ why we in our 30s are not married. for me its quite simple – it has not happened for me yet. i have nothing against marriage – i would love to tie the knot – but for love only not roti, kapda, makan and “status”. *p* SupreetaSingh June 8, 2017 - 8:55 am absolutely! SaumyaTewari June 8, 2017 - 8:55 am The way others see it- 30+ and not married- either something is wrong with you or there is something you are hiding- you did not marry in the “right” age..*p*The way I see it- just turned 30- living my life without bothering anyone- don’t need to build relationships because people want to dance at my wedding *p* *p* Mayank June 8, 2017 - 8:55 am Beyond 30 one is no longer single, one is ‘unmarried’.*p*Be prepared to face constant questions on why you are single*p*No one asks married folks why they married!*p* Hridaan June 8, 2017 - 8:55 am There is no harm if you chose your life that way. The average person does think about settling down after all but it is not mandatory. Being single has its own advantages for sure. After years of hard work you feel like exploring the world in your late thirties and it becomes a bit tough if you have commitments. So yeah, being single and happy is synonymous after the thirties if you really want to be in the situation and if you love yourself above anyone. Hridaan June 8, 2017 - 8:55 am Yeah that is exactly what it should be. If you are in your thirties and you are single and free then you are free to look for the one with whom you want to settle down someday. I feel life is a journey and the more we explore and meet new people the more chances we have to find the one we are looking for and what better if one finds a partner who is equally enthusiastic as him/her. Mira June 8, 2017 - 8:55 am Aah yes.. i almost forgot that one… he/she is no married… there must be some secret affair Mira June 8, 2017 - 8:55 am The worst is… ‘How long will you be -Not married – … dont you get lonely?’ … but the sad part is a single guy in 30s would still be a catch and can be very social. But if you’re a single woman in 30s.. pretty an successful… even your own friends -happily married – see you as threat. No wonder one gets lonely… but thank God, by this age you’re wise enough to know thats cant be your motivation to Un-single yourself. Nikita Dudani June 8, 2017 - 8:55 am The reactions that float when you are single in your mid-thirties are:*p*1) Why are you not married yet? Did someone broke your heart? Or are you pining for someone who doesn’t love you back?*p*2) Are you one of those feminists type? Who doesn’t need a guy? if you say yes, they will be like – the education has gone into your head? No one will marry you if you have such liberal thoughts? You need to compromise a little… *p*3) Career is okay… but you need a man and you need to be a mother to complete woman! duh..!! *p**p*What society fails to understand is that single is a choice – you make. By choosing to be single, you are not opposing society “compulsory rules” to get married and to reproduce. It will still take time for Indian society to take understand that a woman can be single and happy. shagufta June 8, 2017 - 8:55 am From disbelief, disappointment to smirk and sympathy.( some gals feel marriage makes them one up.picture perfect image u know) .
