Having a 30's crisis and missing my twenties...

Hi everyone. I don't know if someone relates to this but I feel like having a 30's crisis right now. I'm 35 but I don't look like or feel like 35, I feel and look like having 30 now and feel like having a crisis between the transition from 20's and being younger to a more mature age and different needs.

I'm in a stable relationship with my fiancé and have a stable job but I feel so bored most of the time. I miss soooo much going out with friends, playing guitar on the beach, having fun, those things. Now all my friends are married with kids and have their adult lives. 5 years ago me and my fiancé also went living in another country and I was so excited and thrilled with the possibilities of having different work experiences and meeting different people. Now we returned to our hometown and although is good to be back home, I feel stuck. Everything is so stable and predictable now. And of course, the next step after marrying is having children and take care of children like everybody else...

I am officially joining your comments... I am 34 and I feel so much like I am the only single and child free person left. I miss Friday nights in my 20s, getting dolled up and going out with the feeling that everything was possible. I have a good life, I am very successful in my career and have a nice home, look and feel great, etc... But I am lonely and bored... I spend Friday other watching TV and do not even buy nice clothes anymore, because I do not have where to wear them

There with you. Infact I am making my own excitement by causing drama around me and it bites. I am almost 35 and I want to go out and have fun now and go to clubs and sing karaoke. I fight with my husband and coworkers so that I will get a charge out of life. I think it is a phase and I hope it passes soon.
