Generation Gap Within The Same Age Group

Age picks up on us so fast that sometimes we don't realize how time flies.

Every now and then friends of mine have been popping up news that they're getting married and expecting a newborn (or already have one). Others are well on the right track with their partners just waiting for the right moment to come.

And then there's me.

Of course it's perfectly normal to be single. But when you put someone like me in comparison of someone who's already a father or mother, what he or she has gone through and what I'm still vague of; there is a big gap.

I have no qualms to settle down with someone I like. But what surprised me was maybe the little "stress" I've been getting from my relatives and family. Every now and then there would be initiatives to introduce someone to me.

And that sparked off a nightmare few days ago. In this nightmare I have to "undergo" a pre-arranged wedding, which totally freaked me out until this very day.

But then again, I guess it would be nice, if I could just get one step off the starting line by my current age.
