If you recently became single or just turned 31 and are beginning to notice how dating has changed, you came to the right place. Their relationship works because they are madly in love and they support each other in the ways that they both need to be supported.
Plus, they have a great time together, and neither of them could imagine a world without the other person in it.
When it comes to discussing their marriage, don’t pry.
If they want to talk about what happened, they will when the time is right. When you’re dating in your 30s, you should be able to talk to your significant other openly and honestly. If you’re not communicating early on in the relationship, you probably won’t get better at it as things move forward. If you’re not into someone, stop talking to them, stop texting them, and stop hanging out with them. Wouldn’t you much rather get a good night of sleep than be out drinking empty calories with a person you’re just not that into? The real you will always come through eventually, so be yourself from the beginning. Nothing is more attractive than someone who is comfortable in their own skin.
I’m very social and I love entertaining, so I need someone who can hold their own and have a conversation without me around.
Nearly everyone who is single in their 30s has dealt with some form of heartbreak—be it ghosting, cheating, or death. The third date is not a good time to discuss how your ex cheated on you for three years and you didn’t realize it until a scandalous photo was sent to you from an anonymous email account. Yes, your past has shaped who you are, but it’s your past—not your present or future.
When you’ve been in a lot of unsuccessful relationships, a natural defense mechanism is to put your guard up.
But it’s important not to let this negative thinking get the best of you.
If you think it’s never going to happen, then it won’t; you have to be positive. You'll never find your soulmate if you're a dating cynic.
