The drama starts with Cheng You Qing (Ariel Lin) having a nightmare of time chasing after her. At her work as a manager at the shoe department at a departmental store, she realises that she has turned 30 years old. She receives an email from her best friend, Li Da Ren (Bolin Chen) who congratulates her and also sends an email of “50 signs of Premature Aging” and she becomes fuming mad with him.

You Qing and Da Ren were classmates since high school, where You Qing always gets elected as class monitor and Da Ren as assistant monitor because there’s a majority of 16 girls as opposed to 15 boys in the class. Because of this inequality, there is a rift between the sexes. You Qing although tough talking and stubborn, has always been a champion of justice in her school days. She even spoke out and complained to the headmaster when she found out that one of the male teachers was sexually harassing students. But, the headmaster sides with the male teacher, and she gets threatened that if she pursues the matter, she will fail her grades. Da Ren overhears, and trails her back home. As she nears her door, he tells her it’s ok even if they get transferred. And that she’s right in what she did. She looks suspiciously at him, but then he asks her not to misunderstand him coz’ “ it’s impossible to love you”

Fast forward to the future, Da Ren is now a superior of all the counter staff at the airport. He is patient with his colleagues and the customers, with the right balance of justice as he disallows customers who violate rules and regulations. Therefore, he’s well liked by everyone.

Da Ren waits patiently for a late You Qing (who went to helped a pregnant friend) for dinner with take away food. While they eat, they squabble and ends up with You Qing irrirated when Da Ren says that she’s imperfect. She asks him then, which part of her is imperfect, which drives Da Ren to frustration. Anyway, they end up with a bet. Da Ren tells her that whoever gets married before 35 wins 20,000, which gets You Qing excited. She raises the bet to 100,000.

Da Ren and You Qing have a solid friendship. They talk almost everyday on the phone, You Qing especially calls Da Ren to tell him everything. They even meet at a certain place at night with cans of beer, to talk over their life. Da Ren is especially patient with You Qing, as You Qing sometimes is pretty sensitive and stubborn. You Qing knows that Da Ren is always there for her and understands her the best. When they talk about their past relationships, they find out that that’s the biggest thing that they can’t see eye to eye. Da Ren feels that You Qing’s past boyfriends show she has no taste in men, and You Qing feels the same with Da Ren’s ex.

Since they have a bet, You Qing goes through all the men in her life, but narrows down to only one good enough for her, Da Ren. The problem is, that they have this mutual understanding that they are best of friends, but it’s impossible for them to fall in love. You Qing then discovers that her new assistant, Vic, is pretty attentive to her. He’s 5 years younger and that throws her off. Later, she’s devastated that he is just playing around with her feelings and that he actually has a boyfriend.

Meanwhile, at Da Ren’s workplace, a new trainee, Maggie, young, sweet and innocent, showers attention on him. Da Ren show much interest at first, because only one person occupies his thoughts and mind- You Qing. Later, he’s touched by her kindness and thoughfulness and doesn’t object to a relationship because of one an important reason, she accepts You Qing’s and Da Ren’s friendship. Although You Qing feels that he’s being shallow in his choice, Da Ren tells her that his relationship with his exes didn’t work because they couldn’t accept You Qing, but Maggie can.

Thus, Da Ren gets caught between You Qing and Maggie, and then an even more complicated situation arrives. The man You Qing loved before, Ding Li Wei, reappears again, wanting to rekindle their relationship after he supposedly cheated on her.
