30yo anon here, we have a few threads like this fyi: >>>/feels/36
>How is your life now (single, married, education, job, etc.)?
I'm dating someone, but it isn't super serious>How did life change in comparison to the previous years?
I was a total NEET during my 20s (save for a few years of working), I always thought I would be dead by 25 or 30 at the very most (had some suicide attempts, am chronically ill, and overall I'm a mess), so I never prepared for the future and now I found myself turning 30 and going, fuck, I'm still here, I have to start making use of my time. I'm working a lot more on myself now. My friends are all marrying, living with partners, getting serious about career, or other things, so it's been really lonely. Other than that, not much has changed.>What are the advantages of being at this age?
I feel way more confident now. I feel like I'm finally past the "awkward stage" and I'm generally way more relaxed. I don't let people push me around as much anymore. Overall I'd say it's pretty good. I was really scared of turning 30 and aging in general because everywhere you're reminded that a woman is at her peak when she's young and beautiful, but I see that for what it is now. >How do people treat you?
I don't go out much, but I don't feel like anyone really treats me much differently. Age is probably the least important factor in how people treat me because of my visible illness, extreme awkwardness, and slightly alternative look, all of which leads to people patronizing me anyway.
