When you’re te your 20s, pretty much anything goes when it comes to dating. Singles tend to be more carefree and have more energy to date. Ya, breakups are hard but you’re youthfull and you’ll meet someone straks te life so it’s no biggie. However, when you’re dating ter your 30s you may have more of a sense of urgency and there are certain things to keep te mind.
Here are the 6 things you need to know:
1. Blessed hours are something to take total advantage of.
“Happy hours are a good place to meet single people because it’s something social you can do right after work and still make sure you’re huis at a reasonable hour,” says Paige, 32, from Fresh York.
Two. Looks zekering being the number one priority.
Three. Dating apps can become your dearest wingman/woman.
“It may seem lazy to some, but at the end of the day, it’s lighter and more calming for mij to meet people online, while I am huis calming, than spending an reserve two to three hours out after work attempting to meet women,” says Ryan, 37, from Sacramento, CA.
Four. You’re not te your 20s anymore.
“My friend and I went to this club wij used to frequent ter our mid-20s. After a few minutes and realizing that wij were the oldest guys ter the place, wij left and went to a sports tapkast. The look I got from chicks wasgoed like ‘check out the old guys.’ Those late nights partying at clubs are overheen,” says Mark, 35, from Atlanta.
Five. You’ll want to know right away if it’s going anywhere.
6. You can still be confused about what you want.
“When I turned 36, I thought maybe I wasgoed just meant to be single. I wasn’t meeting the right guys and determined that I would be fine on my own. I could travel, date on my terms, and just live my own life. Then I met [Jay] and couldn’t imagine my life without him te it,” says Abby, 37, from Albany.
Being ter your 30s is a transition period. You’re undoubtedly not ‘old’ yet, but your not your junior self either. You may look like you’re still ter your 20s, but you don’t feel like you’re te your 20s anymore. And this transition period is actually a indeed superb time to date. It’s different than your 20s, you don’t just ‘meet someone out’ or ‘text you zometeen.’ Dates aren’t formal but they are planned. When people aren’t interested, they know how to be mature about it. And you’re a little bit older and wiser too. Not much, mind you. But just enough to make things interesting.
