Dating in your late 30s
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.
If you recently became single or just turned 31 and are beginning to notice how dating has changed, you came to the right place. 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.
The playing field is narrower and you probably carry a little more baggage.
You also likely have fewer single friends, so there's more pressure to couple up. One of my girlfriends is 35 and she just married a 27-year-old.
When I was in my mid-20s, I wanted a partner who drove a nice car and could afford to take me to a fancy restaurant.
As someone who's experienced and learned from a handful of significant life milestones, I quickly realized I should steer clear of anyone under 25.
If you’re entering your 30s as a single person, it means the dating efforts leading up until now have failed.
That’s not to say you didn’t value or regret those relationships; it just means they didn’t work out.
I have a nervous personality, so I need someone who can tell me to relax.
I’m very social and I love entertaining, so I need someone who can hold their own and have a conversation without me around.

Movies portrayed it as something to aspire to, and so the idea fit well into my own dreams and goals.
