Being 30, childless, and single. Where do I go from there?

I'm turning 31 this upcoming November. I recently had a mutual break-up with my ex-girlfriend mid-April of this year. It was the first real relationship for me personally, and I can say that I went through verbal-abuse at times during the two year relationship. Eventually, the relationship became very toxic and my ex recognized the fact that we’re two completely different people. She was also apologetic about certain things that she had said and realizes that I wasn’t going to reach my full potential as someone who felt that he was walking around eggshells all the time. The breakup was civil, and it was better for the two of us in the long run. [more inside]

Called off my fourth engagement. Broke up. Now I am terrified.

I wrote in earlier about being engaged 4 times by 30. The advice was amazing and I did end up calling it off and breaking up. However, now I am terrified. Of being alone, maybe not having kiddos one day, and wondering if I will ever get married to a partner. [more inside]

Fourth engagement by 30 and unsure (again)- what do you think?

I am a 30 year old woman engaged for the fourth time. Sometimes I am sad, sometimes I am happy, but mostly I feel ambivalent. Seeing that this is the 4th time in a decade with no marriage to show...am I with the wrong person, am I a marriage-phobe deep down inside, have unrealistic love expectations, or do I just continually make poor decisions? Basically, I need help and wonder what you think or if you have advice/anecdotes. Snowflake details inside. [more inside]

Must-Watch 30 Rock Episodes?

After recommendations from friends, I've just recently discovered 30 Rock. I started watching from Season 1, Episode 1. Turns out I love the show. But here's the problem: I'm in a place in my life with very little time to dedicate to TV. So while I want to be caught up so I can watch the most recent episodes and talk about them with friends, there's no way I can watch all of the episodes. So, MeFi - what are the must-watch 30 Rock episodes? I've Googled around, but would love your opinions.

B&W Photo Enhancement.

I need to enhance facial detail in a 70 year old B&W 120 negative. The negative is both underexposed and out of focus. I am using PS Elements 3.0. I also have Photoshop 7. I will be using a Canoscan 8400F scanner. I can go to a local pro and have the negative scanned on his Epson V750 for $$$$$ if needed. What are good texts that can explain the mechanics of image enhancement? Any advantage in upgrading Elements? My computer does not have an internet connection and I do not need any of the net connected features that seem to be the reasons for upgrading Elements. I can also live with the 3.0 poor cataloging.
