It's a known fact that the life of a 30-year-old lady is way more intense and passionate than one who's 20.
Those in their third decade can confirm how much life changes throughout the years.
I identify much more with the characters and their struggles. Because dating in your 30s is very different from dating in your 20s.
The playing field is narrower; if you want kids, the biological clock is ticking; and as you're older, you’re naturally carrying around a lot more baggage.
One, that younger women are no longer interested in dating men who are even just slightly (3-5 years) older than them and sometimes want to date men 5-10 years younger then them. Alas, the women with whom he wants to get serious are 27-34.
Two, women seem to be content in the fact that they are independent and self-sufficient and have a career, family and friends that fulfills them and don’t seem to be interested in truly finding a relationship. This gives men time to court, fall in love, travel together, move in, get engaged, and enjoy a few years of childless marriage before starting a family.
When I was in my mid-20s, I wanted a guy who drove a nice car and who could afford to take me to a fancy restaurant.
The number of single friends is dwindling, so there is also more pressure to be coupled up.
Dating is hard at any age, but even more so in your 30s. One of my girlfriends is 35, and she just married a 27-year old.
I’m a 42 year old single male who recently left a 5 year relationship for various reasons, but mainly because I wanted kids and she did not.
I thought that since I was an attractive, fit, well-educated, financially and emotionally secure guy that I would have no problem finding a woman in her mid 30s to settle down with and start a family.
