The Only Single 30 Year Old

I never thought of myself as someone desperate to be in a relationship. I've always been very independent, and happy to spend time on my own. In fact, I am quite picky about who I choose to let into my world, and would much rather be alone than with the wrong person. I used to have quite a few single or at least non-attached-at-the-hip-with-their-partner friends to hang out with as well. But lately, it seems like literally EVERY person I know is in a serious relationship but me. Every time I hang out in a group now it seems like I'm the only person there without a significant other. I've never been one to really care about this before, and I am of course happy for all of these people who seem to have found happiness. But it just makes me question whether I'm missing something. Is there something wrong with me? Maybe I've gotten too used to being on my own. Where are all these single people in their 30s like TV shows and movies would have you believe? Because that does not seem to be the case in my life, and it's making me feel like kind of a weirdo, as ashamed as I am to say it. Anyone else in the same boat?

Maybe you will find love when all your friends are getting a divorce?

You were quite picky about who you choose to let into your world, and would much rather be alone than with the wrong person.
Maybe if you let go of this rationale you'd have a different outcome?
