I once took a job with conditions like this. I was a regional vice president. All the other RVP were male. I was bringing in more money than any of them, and making more money which was pissing the off, so the senior VP started charging my region with their expenses. I called and said you can't do that, and he said I can do anything I want.SOOOO, I stopped producing. I worked mornings only, the staff brought in TVs and did nothing,loving it. My secretary covered for me in the afternoons. Because of the drag between originations and closings, I dropped the income for the Region to zero. Nothing. It so devastated the company, they had to close that regional office. And of course I already had a new better job lined up. I can do anything I want, too. Don't double cross me you fools.

Please take this in the kindest of ways, but you sound like a vibrating nervous Nancy which is repelling to men. Get a grip and quit making finding a man your sole purpose in life. It's not attractive. Maybe then you'll have better luck. [ Reply | More ]

Agree. I also mean it kindly. You're freaking out because you want to have kids before 35 - and you are only 28. A lot can happen in 7 years. There are women out there who are married and divorced twice in 7 years. You need to relax. Easier said than done, I know. Maybe it would make sense to see someone about it. [ Reply | More ]

Please don't drop out. You have a worthy goal. It sounds as if you have social anxiety. Do you have friends? You need to have people to hang around with and do things with. [ Reply | More ]

Would you mind attracting a sahd type? You might have better luck dating less ambitious men. [ Reply | More ]

You are young. You are getting a good education and will have a great job one day. Should you never meet a man, you can be a single mom. No need to worry, enjoy being young and without commitments, it's fun. [ Reply | More ]

I am sure you are not. Focus on your career, keep up your healthy lifestyle, do things you enjoy in your free time, live your life. You will be fine, one way or another, you have everything going for you. [ Reply | More ]

Alright, nobody can promise that, it just is very likely given from what we know about you that indeed one day you will fall in love and find a partner. Now, if you have lost hope, start planning on becoming a single parent. Most of UB is going to object to that but I have two friends who have done it and they are doing great and are very happy. Start thinking about it, a plan will fall in place. [ Reply | More ]

Honestly, it's probably because of thinking this way. You sound depressed. No one wants to hang around someone in a constant pity party. Be someone someone would want to be with. [ Reply | More ]

You're insane, and it is getting in the way of your life. You need help. No one, hear me no one, wants to be with someone who is on the verge of a nervous breakdown because she is 28 and single. [ Reply | More ]

This. The uncontrolled anxiety is a turn off to both friends and suitors. You have to get it together, figure out how to love yourself and others will too [ Reply | More ]

I've always had friends but I've never had "suitors." In college I was always single whereas my friends all had boyfriends. There is something wrong with me, I'm just not attractive to me [ Reply | More ]

Reach out to your friends and relatives and ask them if they could help set you up with someone. If desperate enough, you could even try matchmaking services. Good luck and you still have time so don't panic! [ Reply | More ]

I think it is good to be aware but "nervous breakdown" is dramatic. Anyone can be a mother and anyone can get married. Calm down and think of asking one of the guys in class to study with you. [ Reply | More ]

NP I went through a phase in my mid 20s where i realized I was f-ing up my love life by being too anxious and clingy. I decided to get in to therapy and also made a promise to myself not to date anyone seriously for 2 years while I worked hard (grad school) AND went to therapy weekly to figure out my bad habits. I suggest you focus on school (and congrats!!!) as well as going to a therapist to come up with ways you can stop being so anxious. 28 and single is FINE. 38 and single and wanting a baby is slightly more alarming, but you're honestly still VERY young and you are in a position to get some great support from a good therapist now.
