For those that are 30 or above, did you dread turning 30?

I saw a poll recently that asked what our birth month was, but what I wanted to know is did you dread turning 30? I've had a great childhood, teens, and twenties, and believe the thirties will only get better. So does everyone share this outlook?

I was terrified, to be honest. I started to become insecure and all kinds of things about eight months before the actual day. It was completely out of character for me and I didn't really know where it was coming from. When I turned 21, I lept at it like a brass ring and grabbed ahold with all of my might. But, 30? "Fuck that noise", is the best way to describe how I felt about it.

When I woke up on my birthday and realized that nothing sagged overnight and I didn't have crows feet that appeared out of nowhere, all of my fears subsided. I feel...good about it. It's really hard for me to describe just how at peace with it I was. And I know it sounds silly, but it was just a really weird time in my life. I'm over it now. We'll see what happens when 40 comes a-knockin'.

No, I was looking forward to it - it meant I would feel like a real adult.

I'm 34 and still waiting to feel like an adult.

I only dread my age when I'm going through a traumatic incident, like when I finally booted out my ex-husband and began thinking "Oh my god I'm 32 and by the time I get my shit together I'll be too OLD to do anything fun or get a meaningful relationship because all the men will be taken and having families or won't be able to perform anymore ... "

Yeah, 34, still getting my life together, but have a 46-year-old Master with the libido of an 18-year-old, which I found out when we did meet ... if there weren't 5,000 miles between us at the moment ...

27 is the only birthday that bothered me. I was no longer in my mid-20s and for some reason being past the mid-20s seemed so old. I'm well past that age now.

Honestly, it didn't phase me. Age is just a number.

I was looking forward to turning 30. I felt like my 30's would be a good decade for me - I'd be old enough to know to avoid certain things, but young enough to still have a good time. So far, my 30's have been just fine. It isn't a magical age when you suddenly know what to do, or automatically have yourself together, but I still like being in my 30's. They're going really well!

It went by so fast, I didn't even notice or care. For me, it is just a number. Fixing to turn 40 in a few months and does not bother me one bit.

No, 30 is awesome. Turning 31 in a couple months.

nope not at all. What is the alternative, being in the ground? Getting older is part of life. You can learn to deal with it and have a happy fulfilling life, or dread things like this. I count my self as lucky that I am still alive, as I have friends who have not been so lucky.

I say that all the time - beats the alternative! And it's really true.

30 and 31 feels like I'm 20 all over again, only smart enough to know how to responsibly have a good time. My kids are old enough now that I don't feel bad leaving the house for a few hours. My husband is anti-social, so I go out by myself and have fun with friends. I'm doing roller derby. I'm having the time of my life (and since I'm married, I don't have to think about the dating aspect)!
