Behavior towards single people over 30 is often too negative to be a true representation of what it really feels like to look for a relationship after 30 years.
Undue pressure, lower standards and desperation are often related to dating after 30 years, which establishes an adverse mentality well rooted in society.
But that’s not the whole truth, not even half of the truth, about dating when you’ve turned away from your 20s.
And here are five things that prove it perfectly:
Most of the time, people who are 30 years old would have enough dates to realize, for example, that the type of love dragged by the feet is not necessarily an indication of a relationship that will last. There is hardly naivety in the people who come out at this stage.
2. Red flags
Because they have been there before, they know quite well when a red flag is waved in front of them. Those red signs will be clearly seen in a partner, if there is one.
3. They know what they want
There are longer games and try to go around the bush and see where things are going.
There is always a clear definition of what they want because they know that it is better not to arrive early instead of overcoming the illusion of a “yes” that can be eliminated when time must have been wasted.
4. Financial stability
There is also the really important question of money. From the age of 30, people would have moved away from being destitute and dependent to be able to stand and stay stable in their finances.
And you know what they say about romance and finances, right?
5. Relationships instead of appointments
People in this age group often come out with the intention and this is what is often misinterpreted as despair.
What we always ask before too much time is wasted and clear definitions are needed.
This is because the goal for many at this stage is a relationship and commitment, as opposed to the chill and fluency that characterizes dating in previous years.
