Dating in your late 30s
My fellow 30-year-old singles, hear this: With age comes wisdom, and we are too young to go through a mid-life crisis while struggling through the dating scene. When it feels like people aren't on the same page as you, they probably aren’t.
There’s no shame in calling it like it is and walking away.
And when you’ve gone a decade floating in and out of relationships that didn’t pan out, you get a little discouraged.
You’re a little more realistic and a little more hesitant.
The playing field is narrower and you probably carry a little more baggage.
But, I came to five unexpected realizations while dating in my early 30s: If you’ve been out of the dating scene a while, you need to know online dating sites have changed the game.During the 10 years before turning 30, I was in relationships where I couldn't be committed to or supportive of my partners.Like a classroom, life was teaching me what love was all about.Movies portrayed it as something to aspire to, and so the idea fit well into my own dreams and goals.Like the hopeless romantic mainstream media shaped me into being, I spent the better part of my 20s chasing the conventional dream to find my love story.
