Anyone feel pressured to date because of their age?

Does anyone else stress out about their age? Right now I dont want to date. I am so busy with school and my son,.. I dont even know what I would do if God placed the most prefect man in our lives right now. Having said that,.... I feel a GREAT pressure to get out there and date because I am already 25 years old :C

Does anyone else feel this way? How do you cope with that?

I'm 48.  I've been divorced for just over a year.  I'm more than ready to date.  Just haven't been to get lucky enough to have a man approach me or go on a decent date.  I guess it's not my time.

I think getting out there where the single men are is the key. I know that is one of the reasons why I havnt met someone. I am always doing things with my son

I feel that way, I'm 28 yo and been divorced 2 years, so all my friends think I should be out there all the time and finding the next Mr. Right, I started dating maybe a year after I divorced, dated, was with one guy seriously for 6 months and it ended  because he was just too demanding of my time and that isn't possible when I work full time and have a son. So I say do what makes you happy, if you don't want to date, don't and don't allow anyone to make you feel otherwise.

My fear is - How real is it, that with age, that our chances of finding love fall? If I wait until I want to, could it really be to late? 

Is there ever a good time to date when you are a single mother? Should I just suck it up?

Sure I do, and I'm not dating right now either.

No, age never concerned me at all, but I knew I was done having kids after my second one, so it never mattered.

I guess I did... I worried about a lot of things, my age (30), my 3 GIRLS, my struggling financial status... and then one day it just happened. I found an incredible man who loves me, my girls as if they were his own (he doesn't even have kids) and is willing to overlook my finances and help me finish my college career. Someday you may be just as pleasantly surprised as I. :)

Quoting Robsessed98:

I think that is what is bothering me. I only have one child and want to have more

I feel a little pressured to date (35) but with school and work and being a single Mom? The pool of men is limited and to be honest, nothing I've seen has impressed me thus far. I have specific standards this time in what I'm looking for
