What’s the point of being in a relationship at any age if you’re not having fun?
It shouldn’t be a job and it shouldn’t be depressing.
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.
I enjoy learning new things, so I want a partner who is willing to teach me stuff.
If you’ve never really thought about what you want in a partner, then I suggest you figure it out so you can find the right fit.
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.
Although I still think these things are great, now that I’m in my 30s, I know that I want more in a partner.
When you’re in your 30s, it’s much easier to become jaded and bitter; so many relationships have not worked out that you may start to think it’s never going to happen.If you don’t let anyone in, then you won’t get hurt, right?However, if you don’t let anyone in, you probably won’t end up finding the one.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.
When it comes to discussing their marriage, don’t pry.
