Love approach dating
Write down the names of the last few people you dated.
Next to each name, list the top five things you liked about them and the top five things you didn’t like about them.
Likewise, they should be able to talk to you candidly. Nobody should settle for a partner who they are only sort of into.
The relationship won’t be healthy, nor will it last.
When you’re in your 30s, it’s easy to get caught up in thinking about the things you don’t have yet.
You haven’t met the one, you’re not married, you don’t live in a beautiful house, and you don't have kids.
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.
Focus on having fun and getting to know the person.
The divorce rate in America is somewhere between 42% and 50%, so when you’re in your 30s, you're probably going to date people who are divorced.
One of the advantages of dating a divorcee is that they've probably learned a lot from their former marriage that they can apply to a new relationship.
If you don’t let anyone in, then you won’t get hurt, right?
However, if you don’t let anyone in, you probably won’t end up finding the one.
