I’m not going to sit here and pretend that dating in your twenties doesn’t have its perks. However, dating in your twenties is not lacking in its own challenges.
Your twenties are a phase of self-discovery, a time where you are truly learning who you are and who you want to be.
Society has put a lot of pressure, especially women, to settle down by a certain age.. This unrealistic standard adds an unnecessary pressure to the realm of dating.
However, the reality is times are changing and thirty is pretty much the new twenty (cliché but true)!
In your thirties, you have a better understanding of your wants and needs, because you have a better understanding of who you are.
Not only are you aware of your wants and needs, but you are more comfortable asking to have your needs met and speaking up when they are not.
With age comes a sense of self-assurance, a different kind of confidence that allows you to know your worth, and not settle. When you are in your thirties, and dating people of the same age, there is a “no-bullshit” side to dating.
People don’t want to waste their time, and those who do aren’t worth waiting around for.
The older you are, the more stories and life experiences you gather. With age, comes wisdom- another cliché but damn, is it true.
There is no rush, no reason to feel pressure, and no age limit on love. When your mind fully grasps that notion and when you are fully comfortable in your skin, dating becomes a different kind of game, it becomes a game you can win.
