Tell me your stories about dating in your 30s?

Can you help me show a friend that plenty of people find love after 35? She is afraid that no one will want a relationship with a woman who is single at 35.

A little history. My friend is 31. She's currently in a healthy relationship, but isn't sure where it is going. She's mentioned a couple of times now that she feels like something else might not come along because she's in her 30s and "who wants a woman that's single at 35." I just want to show her that wonderful relationships happen after 30 and I thought the best way to do that would be to collect your stories.
So, if you've started a relationship in your 30s, whether it ended up being permanent or not, would you mind sharing it here? How did you meet? What's different, if anything, about this relationship compared to those you had in your teens and 20s? Is this the first relationship you've ever had? Do you have any advice you would give her?
