I’m soon going to be 29 years old. It’s scary thinking that I’m still single while many of my friends are living with their boyfriends or even had a baby already. Although I’d like to think I look young for my age, I can’t deny the fact that my biological clock is tacking. No matter how well I take care of myself, I know my body does age over time. I recently read an article on how your fertility decline at a rate of 3.5% per year after Age 30 (EEKS). Women are born with a million eggs that she will ever use for the rest of her life. By puberty, the number of eggs decline to 300,000. The best eggs are used while she is young. As she ages, her eggs decline in quality, thus, the chance of her child having down syndrome or any other abnormality increases.
This is a harsh truth. How long can you wait around for the guy? If you wait around for a guy, you might get too old to have babies. Although there are lots of fertility treatments such as freezing your eggs available, the treatments are extremely costly (at least $5000+). Why wait around and give up the chance of having what you want when you could find someone who will share what you want?
I have been reading some relationship articles and videos online. Many middle aged women cried and laminated the fact that they gave their best years to a man who never returned their love. Those best years are something they will never get back. It’s really sad reading or watching the videos, and I certainly do not want to share their experiences!
We can choose to look at this harsh truth as a motivation. Since our biological clock is tacking, we cannot afford to wait around much longer. If the guy doesn’t love you now, how long are you willing to wait for him to smarten up? He might change, but he might never get better. If you do desire children (and be honest to yourself), then you need to wipe those tears off, put your best self forward, and go out and attract the love of your life! Don’t wait around for him anymore. We have only infinite time and we deserve to get everything our heart desire. If you and him are meant to be, he will return. Let him go for now.
Lots of love,
