If you're not one of the first to achieve either or both of those milestones if that's what you want , it's okay.

What You Should Know About Dating in Your Late 20s
If you're ready to start dating later in life or someone who started after you friends, it can be easy to feel like you're the only one. I promise— you're not. There's nothing wrong with entering the dating game a little later than average.

Go do your thang.
