Just in time for her 30th birthday, Pimchanok receives an email about “the symptoms of premature aging” from Thanapan, her best friend of 14 years. Unable to accept that Thanapan is like a fine wine that will get better with age and she will be like a grape that will shrivel into a raisin as years go by, she makes a bet with him to see who will get married first before they turn. Despite their platonic feelings, Thanapan often says the girls he dates are not a match for him and at the same time, he is not satisfied with the men Pim dates. It seems like Thanapan would be the perfect match for Pim instead.
Sure enough, as Pim searches for a potential husband, she discovers that she is surrounded by unfitting candidates, like her gay assistant or her cheating ex-boyfriend. The only man who could love her despite her ill temper and stubbornness is her best friend. However, they both swore that they were not nor will ever be romantically attracted to each other to preserve their friendship.
