If you hide behind this nonchalant visage, you won’t actually get to show your true self.This is dumb – regardless of what number they give you.One of my friends, who didn’t have a relationship until a few months before her 30th birthday, stayed in that first horrible relationship for years. Well at that age, she told me, she thought it was her only chance. Lots of people start dating later— and there’s no reason to put up with a crap relationship just because you’re not 21 anymore.So here’s what everyone in their 30s should know about dating.“The fact that you were single throughout your teens and 20s shows that you are confident and independent enough not to ‘need’ to be in a relationship.” Knowing how to be happy when you’re single is such a huge skill, so don’t trade that in for anything less than something really great.

“You need to evaluate them and your chemistry together the same way you evaluated any new friends you might have made.” Especially if you’re meeting people on apps, it’s easy to project everything you want onto them while you’re chatting — and get way too excited about a date that falls flat within 10 seconds. In fact, if you’ve been waiting a long time then it’s even more important not to just date the first person who comes along.
