The number of single friends is dwindling, so there is also more pressure to be coupled up.
Dating is hard at any age, but even more so in your 30s. One of my girlfriends is 35, and she just married a 27-year old.
Instead, focus on what is happening now and look where you are going next. The chef who ended up having a girlfriend who lived with him.
The finance guy who vanished the night after I introduced him to all of my friends.
If you’ve recently become single or just turned 31 and are beginning to notice how dating has changed, you came to the right place. Just as you should be open to dating a divorcee, you should also be open to dating someone younger than you. Their relationship works because they are madly in love and they support each other in the ways that they both need to be supported.
Plus, they have a great time together and neither of them could imagine a world without the other person in it.
When the time is right and you’ve met someone that you’re into and who is also into you, let your guard down. If this makes you feel anxious, tell yourself everything will be okay. When you’re in your 30s, it’s easy to get caught up in thinking about the things you don’t have yet.
You haven’t met the one, you’re not married, you don't live in a beautiful house, and you don't have babies.I have a nervous personality, so I need a guy who can tell me to relax.I’m very social and love entertaining, so I need someone who can hold their own and have a conversation without me holding his hand.I identify much more with the characters and their struggles. Because dating in your 30s is very different from dating in your 20s.The playing field is narrower; if you want kids, the biological clock is ticking; and as you're older, you’re naturally carrying around a lot more baggage.Age is just a number—it only matters when you make it matter.
