Dating men over 30
When I told this story to my mom, she responded with a sigh, “See, this is why you need a boyfriend: Air conditioners, broken toilets, a raccoon in the basement—that all becomes their problem.”But it’s not just that being single suddenly feels alienating in your 30s.It’s also that dating itself becomes more difficult. You don’t want to waste your time on someone who doesn’t feel like they could be “the one.” But simultaneously, thinking “would he make a good dad?So, being single, I had to hire a random man from the Internet to carry it for me.Then I had to hire a different man to install it, only to have that man explain that I’d bought an AC with the wrong voltage for my building, which meant that I had to rehire the first man to carry the AC back downstairs again.Prince charming doesn't exist, and not every handsome man is intelligent.You went on a lot of dates before realizing that there's no point in being picky.At this age, you already know your body, you know what you're looking for in a man, and what you like, that's why your life if way different than what it was in your 20s.When you were 20 years old, you liked to demonstrate that you could get any guy.
By the time you reach your 30s, you already know what you want in life and what you don't.
If your ex cheated on you or you were betrayed by a friend, then you know exactly how much it disappointment hurts, and that's why you know when to walk away from toxic relationships.
At this age, you begin to trust your instincts and trust me, it's the best decision you've made in a long time.
And it doesn’t help that our 30s is also the decade where we spend so much of our time and money celebrating other people’s coupledom.
Because, of course I want to spend Labor Day weekend manually inflating a 6-foot blow-up penis, drinking a month’s rent worth of rosé, and pretending to be happy for Karen.
As a millennial feminist, allow me to run with this victim thing.
