My wife surprised me last night for my 30th bday (which was last week) with a get together with my closest friends I have known since middle school. Most of them live out of state with kids and somehow it all worked out. Feeling really loved.

I was waiting for the plot twist. Now, as someone alone and in his 30s, I'm just jealous. 😅 Congrats on finding a good one!

Hey there are pros to being single as well!! It’s just a different stage of life, so enjoy it (I know it’s easier to say as someone married).

Wow. I got my husband a soda maker for his 30th.

D1 - any ideas?

Just here to drop the obligatory “DIVORCE HER!” that seems to be the response to every confession about Significant Others on here 😂 But in all seriousness, sounds like your wife is amazing!

My 30th was last week too. My friends (elementary and middle school) surprised me yesterday with a bbq. Is it weird they all live close by and not a single one of them have kids or even close to it? None of them are even married (a few have gfs). Just interesting how one group of 30 yo friends is so different than other groups.

Eh, to each their own! It’s definitely harder to make time for each other when you have kids, but seeing guys I’ve known for so long being great dads is pretty cool.

Happy birthday m8

Awesome happy birthday
