5 Dating Tips
For 30-Something Millennials
Dating is hard at any age, but after you cross 30, it becomes a game of who can take the most pressure. Millennials in their 30s need to stay strong and face all those uncomfortable questions every day: “When are you finding a husband/wife?”, “When are you planning to have kids?”, “Do you want to stay alone forever?” Of course, you don’t owe anyone an answer, but these questions can get to you quite easily. Millennial dating is tough, even though we have all the technology and the tools to do it. If dating doesn’t come naturally to you, here are five dating tips for 2023:
1. Don’t get pressured into anything
Once you grow up completely, age becomes just a number. Social pressure shouldn’t get to you, and there’s no need to think about marriage or kids if you’re not ready. There’s no right age to find a perfect partner and there’s no age limit to getting married. It should depend on you and your partner and whether you’re ready to make these big steps, and you shouldn’t care about anyone else. People rush into marriage in order to fit in and end up getting a divorce in a matter of few years – it’s best to wait for the right one and save yourself a lot of nerve, money, and time.
2. Forget about your past experiences
If you’re in your 30s, you probably have exes and past relationships, many of which ended bitterly. However, you’re not the only person with baggage. We all have a past and we shouldn’t allow it to manage our present.
Every new person you meet is a new opportunity for happiness. Your new potential partner is nothing like your ex, and your past experiences shouldn’t interfere with your new bonds.
3. Be open to all sorts of dating
You might be determined to meet your partner the old-fashioned way, at a bar, concert, or grocery store. However, the reality is that we live in completely different times now, when most people rely on dating apps and social media to make connections. Be open to dating no matter which shape it comes in. It’s possible to meet a perfect match on a sugar dating app as long as you’re honest and open to making genuine connections. We all know why dating apps exist, and using them as intended can bring you amazing results. Essentially, it doesn’t matter where, when, and how you meet a good and fun person as long as you end up happy.
4. Inspect your needs and wants
Every person has different needs and wants in a relationship, so make sure to list yours. Also, everyone has different definitions of love, relationships, and partnerships, and ask yourself what these terms mean to you. It’s good to remember that the honeymoon period lasts only for a few months and long-term connections require you to change and evolve with your relationship. Your wants, needs, and definitions of the partnership will change over the years, so make sure to repeat these inspections of your feelings regularly.
5. Get comfortable with yourself
Unless you’re happy when alone, you won’t be happy in a relationship. It’s crucial not to let your relationship define your worth and your mood. It’s important to come to terms with who you are, which is something many Millennials excel at. Unfortunately, once you get comfortable being alone, it’s hard to leave this comfort zone and let someone in. However, don’t let the small reasons and small flaws you notice in someone deter you from getting to know them on a deeper level. When you’re in a happy place, your partner can only make your life better and enrich your love life – they won’t ruin your progress. Dating in your 30s is not always fun, but if you let go and enjoy the process of getting to know another person, it can be very refreshing. You’ll not also feel like a giddy high school girl, but potentially get a partner for life to make your Millennial life even better.
