Since he's on the road most of the time, if he does propose do you think he would consider moving to your city so it would be more convenient for your job and relationships?

What about a job change? If you feel like it's too much work for too little pay, would it be possible for you to find something else?

I think a lot of us feel the way you do sometimes.

I totally know how you feel. But don't be so hard on yourself. The "normal" way doesn't have to be your way. I'm 30, single mom of a beautiful girl, divorced but move forward everyday. Don't think of your life in a nutshell. Take it a day at a time. Enjoy being you for the time that you have. Take it from me, when you're married you don't get very much "me" time. So enjoy being 30, flirty and fun right?

If you want to choose a different career path do it! You're not dead you're 30! :) Work it girl! You're healthy, work on the happy part. If you have to end your relationship that's ok, you will find someone in time. Sign up for meet up groups you'll meet all kinds of people and maybe even a fella without the pressure. Us girls need to stick together. I hope this helps :) Chin up, I'm here if you need to vent some more. :)

I'm 33 (34 in six months) and I can say that having done alot of the expected things young (first child at 19, married at 18, divorced at 29, mom of 3 by 28), what I know is this: you create your life.

Live life fully, fabulously and on fire! Kassandra Bibas
