Coming soon - Aged 30 years

What does approaching 30 mean?

I have been asking myself this question many times past days. Surely there are turns associated with each age – as a kid fantasy fascinates, as a teen opposite sex and sex fascinates, during 40s there’s a middle-age crisis with men and menopause with women, but turning 30 – what does this mean?

Maybe approaching 30 means getting your act together, settling down in profession, seeking stability in relationships, body becoming less athletic, becoming a man finally having outgrown the boy and maybe, just maybe, have a permanent partner to share and care. There is an age when flings fascinate (they never cease to fascinate, moreso ones with no strings attached but there’s an age when they seem end of world) but there is also an age when you want to settle down, perhaps relax with someone at end of arduous journey

I know of many of my acquaintances, moreso the female ones, who have been robbed of their sleep if they are not settled down when dreaded 30 approaches, no matter how well they are doing professionally. And it is not limited to conservative India only, many chicks settled in West too feel left out if not tied up somewhere. Surely this craving is not for physical needs alone; sex is easy these days having lost sanctity with everyone from school girls to bored housewives freely indulging, its perhaps of something more. Something which I struggle to find words for, something you feel missing out, something you feel its time

Maybe approaching 30 means a change in status, when you no longer want to live in that bachelor pad but have some your own stuff, be looked upon as Anil Kapoor rather than Ranbir Kapoor, when that blazing orange T shirt looks a bit odd, when porn pics seem to bore, when you seriously begin to plan your finances and lastly you begin to think for whom should you plan

Maybe turning 30 means a lot more, but why bother I still have more than a year to go

  2. It is a number game playing up on people's minds. Live life at a comfortable pace. Running makes it trivial. :)

    Kisses.

  4. Hey! Age is just a number! I believe you can be anything you want at whatever age you want. The question is what do you want...its never about what should you want....
    You can never be too old!

  8. it is just a numbers game and it is different for everyone.. but yes, eventually we all tend to crave stability in our personal lives, to share it with one special person.. and looks like you are heading in that direction.

  13. you are right. 20s are wild, 30s are about stability. a good income, a partner, a weekend of sober fun..maybe a drink or two....not crazy wild like your 20s, a vacation once in a year with someone very special.. girlfriend/boyfriend or wife/husband

    women start craving for more. children !

    i have almost two years to go..not dreading. looking forward to it :)

  16. i think the age doesn't matter as long as you are young in the heart and open minded in the mind..and the most important thing is that if you are healthy and fit otherwise...than age doesn't matter..
