I'm 28 Desperate To Settle Down. by lucrecia: 4:06pm On Apr 11, 2012
All my sisters have gotten married, and i am the only one left behind. Meanwhile the right time for a girl to settle down is 25yrs. My question is at my age can i still settle down? i'm desperate to settle down, but i am not in any serious relationship. what should i do?

There is no one right age for a lady to get married. The right age depends on each individual and their aspirations.
Getting desperate and killing yourself about it is not going to make a difference. You might as well live your life,
do all those things you always wanted to do that you never had the chance or time (pls that doesn't include being a ho),
Be the best you can be. Get a hobby. Improve yourself. Be happy. If you are looking for a guy to come and make you happy,
you will fail there miserably if you aren't already happy with yourself.

PS 28 is quite young.

Don't you have goals for yourself? I believe in marriage and I know the pressure you are feeling is palpable, but men can sense desperation and it's a turn off. If you focus on being the best you for yourself, the husband will come. Focus on being well read, well dressed, and well traveled...really anything that makes a happier and better you. People who take care of themselves and are genuinely happy attract others are them. Focus also on building strong friendships and family ties. Creating good relationships with others will make you better at navigating romantic relationships. You never know who may know just the right person for you.

From a practical stand point, putting yourself in situations to meet quality, serious minded men without hunting for them could be fruitful. It won't be the club, but it may be the library, cafe, or friend's wedding. A smile and pleasant conversation goes a long way (even with a nice older woman who has a son.)

You have a whole life ahead of you to be married, have children, and be tied down. Why not explore the freedom you have while you have it?

@Poster

What do you have to offer to your potential husband?? feminist attitudes? . . . . FYI, guys of nowadays are now more sophisticated when it comes to making marriage decisions. Hence, I would advice you to take a hard look at yourself and make necessary changes.

What were you doing since that you didn't find a correct man since your prime years (21-25)? And don't spit that BS about "there were no good men around" cuz that would just be a terrible lie. cheesy
After snobbing all the guys that said hello to you or asked you for directions, here you are now lonely and rapidly approaching menopause grin grin grin

Question 1: Why do you want to settle down?
a. Is it because all your siblings are now settled.
b. Is it because you are 28.
c. Is it because the relationship is not taken serious by either of you.

Understanding your basis would further make one able to help you with a way forward.

OP, you need to take complete stock of your life. You need to evaluate your life vision. If you live through the right vision and goal in life, you will achieve your dreams. Focus on your vision with passion, then you will see your dream man come your way.

Visit Calabar asap and come to Flour Mill along Highway from 11pm. Real men are always there waiting for real women to fall in love. Stop wasting your life in a place where there are no men. Before you know you are old. Sorry baby!
