Well, I have to admit that I felt sad when I turned 30, but the only difference I've noticed inn myself so far is that sometimes I find men in their forties attractive, which used almost never to be the case when I was younger.

Oddly enough, men in their forties and fifties hit on me a lot more when I was a teenager and a young adult. Now that I'm 30, I get a lot more men my age showing interest. I find that change immensely gratifying. :)

I have been experiencing just the opposite lately. For example: I was out last night at a small town tavern having a beer and playing 8 Ball. It's a friendly neighborhood joint where the locals hangout. There was a group of 3 gentlemen who showed interest in me (one of them was a huge flirt LOL). So, we paired off into teams to shoot some pool. They asked me if I was about their age, 25 to 30 years old. I looked at them for a moment, not sure what to say. So they asked the question again. I told them I was almost 50 years old and it took several minutes to convince them of my age-they didn't believe me! biggrin In spite of the age difference, I felt their curious eyes watching me.

What a boost my ego received last night-it's reassuring that at nearly the half century mark of 50 years, I still have my youthful spark and appearance biggrin

I turn 30 on October 18th at 2:04 am......and well I cannot say that I am thrilled. I have been attracted to older men for a while now and I think primarily because younger men to me, seem immature and like they are all about fun, which is perhaps not the case. I am also at that point in my life where I want to settle down...I do not know if this is normal.

Lately I feel like time is against me, let's face it, no one wants to be 40 and start a family...but lately I feel like that is the ultimate destiny and if not then I can accept being alone and single....and just being crazy Aunt Maria....which is cool too...but I feel a little weird that there are no more girls nights with a lot of my friends or a lot of singles nights out with my friends...there is always a baby or a husband or a fiance....and well these are the moments where I feel like 30 is coming too soon and I am not ready.

The older men thing though, I totally understand...lol

Happy Belated!

Maria - you're a Babe in the Woods.

This older man remembers, at age 30, how he as a Center Fielder, helped lead a softball team w/ an 18-yo star Infielder.
