When you are in your late 20s and 30s you’ve probably signed up for Tinder, Ok Cupid and more.
When you realized those didn’t work, you opted to pay for the more upscale ones, such as, e Harmony or Match.
Everything you thought you knew about dating changes as you get older. There are different dating rules because the name of the dating game has changed.
Below are the rules for dating in your late 20s and 30s.
You ain’t got time for “games.” So, one way to weed out the bad ones from the good ones is being upfront and honest about what you want.
This isn’t coming on “too strong,” it’s coming off as a mature adult looking to find something real. So, before going to family gatherings or seeing old friends from high school, prepare for questions as if you are going to be interviewed by Barbara Walters. Unless you’re that one girl I know, and if so, how did you do it?! This is where work parties, the gym and other social gatherings come into play.
Life in your early 20s is a far different look than life in your late twenties/early 30s. In your early twenties, you are finding yourself and possibly making tons of mistakes along the way.
That’s when you have to go where you never thought you would go before — to an online dating service.
You’re more concerned about what’s going on next Friday night than what’s going on with your 5-year-plan.
When you’re young and reckless, you are living in the “here and now,” not the “here and now I have a lot of debt and I’m going to get checked for a STI.” Not only is life different from your early 20’s to your late 20’s — but so is dating. Things that might seem like nothing when you were younger and more carefree, are big red flags as you get older.
If you want to just hook-up that’s fine, but the person you are seeing still deserves to know that’s where you are at. As you get older, society and all of your family members are going to think you should be married with children by now. Location matters in many ways as you get older and wiser. Now you have to go to other places in search of Mr. Think of your interests and hobbies and make like Columbus and get your search on.
Hiring a matchmaker isn’t quite off the dating menu just yet.Putting yourself out there in ways you never thought you would is dating in your late 20s — get used to it.
