Dating advice for women in 20s
But if I'm going to survive this I better slap on a nice outfit and vaseline my teeth to appear approachable and *ugh* dateable. In your late 20s, you've been to what feels like a zillion baby showers and you can't make any summer plans because you're in like 5 weddings. And you get to do it at a time in your life when you're the most self-aware you've ever been! That said, instead of dwelling on what I don't have I'm choosing to start focussing on what I do. Pump your soul with self-love, friendships, experiences, new challenges, and fears.
Being single in your late 20s consists of every family gathering zeroing in on why you're not dating anyone or "what happened to the nice boy you were with a few months ago? By the way, you shouldn't be allowed to be in weddings if you're single. I didn't feel like we were rushing anything but I had no reason to be doubtful or to believe that I'd ever have to consider the outcome that I'm forced to face now. Something you never heard in your early 20s but has become the resounding bell of your late 20s, "I'm not lovable."Which is why I'm sitting here with a half drunk bottle of cheap merlot listening to Dallas Green like the emotional mess that my week has been. Or by the time you do, your eggs will be shriveled up worse than your finger after sitting in a hot tub for too long. And who gives a fuck if you haven't met them in your late 20s? My friend Courtney reminded me of a Grey's quote this week that sums it up, "He's very dreamy, but he's not the sun. What I'm learning is that being single in your late 20s is just an opportunity. The sooner you do that the quicker you will realize that being single in your late 20s is no different than any other time in your life.
I've admittedly resorted to Bumble or Tinder for that surrogate comfort. When you get dumped it's hard to conceptualized that it's not you.
Especially post break up, you just want someone to give you attention and to take an interest in you since the person you were with no longer does. After all, you keep getting dumped so at some point, aren't YOU the constant?
It's easier in that you're just as if not more eligible to women than ever before.
If you've kept in shape and your career is doing well you're a real catch.
I fear that I might go through my 20s dateless, and walk right into my 30s.
My question for those with experience, is dating over 30 really much harder? It's harder to have parties or meetups at bars with other singles than it is in your 20's.
In your early 20s, it's all about the tasting menu of every and any guy/girl to see what you like.
People start getting swept up and then all of a sudden you're 28, single, and wondering how you're going to get through the Hunger Games of dating before you hit 30. Dating in your early 20s is like catching fish in a barrel, but once you hit a certain again all of a sudden it becomes an audition for a Broadway play you don't even want to be on. I don't want to giggle at every one of his terrible jokes. You can explore and focus as much or as little as you want. Sure I can sit here and say all these empowering things but the actions are a lot harder to follow through on.
Id like to know if you can give me some insight if its possible to date women in there20s while being 30 . I've commented about this before here and on other places on Reddit. Not totally dateless but for the large majority of my 20's, I wasn't even close to getting a date.
During my 20's my view of myself was pretty low.
