Differences Between Dating In Your 20s VS Dating In Your 30s

Same same but different but still same.
Differences Between Dating In Your 20s VS Dating In Your 30s

Our dating life priorities are drastically changing over the years. When I was a teenager, all I cared about was if my crush was handsome enough. If he didn't look like prince charming, I wasn't interested. As we grow older, we start to realize that there are many other things we should be basing our choices on. Let's see what goes through the mind of a girl dating in her twenties versus a girl dating in her thirties. Yes, I am not yet in my thirties, but most of my girlfriends are, so I have a pretty good idea of what a thirty year old dating life looks like.

1. A 20-something girl wants to go out, have fun, get drunk and call in sick to work the next morning. A 30-something girl will also go out and have fun, but will act responsibly and prioritize her business.

2. A 20-something girl wants the guy to pay for everything, because she's most probably a broke student. A 30-something girl has her life together and doesn't mind going dutch.

3. A 20-something girl will be impressed by flashy cars and bottles at the club, a 30-something girl will be impressed by a stable job and good manners.

4. A 20-something girl is attracted to douchebags who don't call back, a 30-something girl is attracted to gentlemen.

5. A 20-something girl loves when guys have "swag", a 30-something girl loves when men wear suits.

6. A 20-something girl expects gifts and vacations, a 30-something girl can afford her own gifts and vacations.

7. A 20-something girl is jealous of other women, a 30-something girl is confident enough to ignore competition.

8. A 20-something girl wants to go on adventures, a 30-something girl wants to settle down and have kids.

9. A 20-something girl wants to get matching tattoos, a 30-something girl wants to get an engagement ring.

10. A 20-something girl wants to party all the time, a 30-something girl wants to stay in and cuddle.


Hey, if you're still reading this, you're awesome, but also - is there anything in particular you'd like me to write about in my future posts? I'd love to hear your suggestions!
