Dating tips women their 30s
"Now, in your 30s, priorities are changing, biological realities are setting in and your focus is to find someone with whom you can build a life and have children." It isn't just that the dating pool is smaller after 30, it's also that your brain has literally changed since you were 21 and sidling up to the hottie at the bar.
"Brain development is the primary reason dating after 30 is so different," said David Ezell, the clinical director at Darien Wellness.
Most people go through a re-evaluation of life around early 30s on what they really care about and what they want they want out of life," said Dr.
Wyatt Fisher, a licensed psychologist in Colorado and founder of a niche dating site.
"This re-defining time spills over into their dating life where women in their 30s are often much more direct on the values they want in a person and what types of behaviors they will and will not tolerate." One of the downsides of being more set in your ways and knowing exactly what you want is that you may not seem quite as fun to some potential mates as women in their 20s appear.
The apps are millennial focused and there is a current 'hookup' movement, which you will be mixed up in on the apps," said certified international dating and relationship Megan Weks.
"Your pool of girlfriends also shrinks because many of them are now married and/or have children, so they are less inclined to want to go out for half-price Margaritas with you on a Tuesday." With fewer potential partners to choose from and no wing woman, things can be a little tough.
After 30, many experts agree that women are more interested in commitment than ever before.
"It seems that around age 30, men start looking for younger women to date, which narrows the dating pool significantly.
Younger women are perceived as more 'fun' with fewer expectations and a more youthful appearance and body." Ryan said that many men even limit their online dating searches to only women up to age 35, regardless of how old they are themselves.
