Emily, don't let people try to convince you that you need therapy because you have the audacity to be comfortable in your own skin and content with being single. Mind you, there's not a thing wrong with therapy, and you don't need to be suffering from anything to benefit from therapy- but I think your friends and family are being unfairly judgmental about your lifestyle because they don't personally relate to it. I'm a single girl, close to your age, never been married, no children (and have never even heard the faintest of ticking from my "biological clock"). Like you, I'm used to getting perplexed and then sympathetic looks upon confirming my single/childless status for those who inquire. It doesn't bother me, so why should it bother anyone else? We shouldn't waste our time or energy trying to manufacture a "happily ever after" life based on societal timelines or expectations.
