Is Dating over 30 tougher than it was when you were in your 20's?Page 11 of 11    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11)
Luckily for me I actually look hotter than I did in my 20's. Same body, but even more toned& hard now, go figure.
People think I'm around 24 yrs all the time. I feel sexier& way more confident than I did in my 20's as well, so it
really depends on the person. =)

I don' t know, I went from relationship to relationship in my 20's with a few dates here and there. Most people in their 30's have a lot of walls and barriers up, not to mention baggage and list or requirements. I've enjoyed my dating life for the past 3 years.

Im sorry if you are single at 39 and never been married Im going to run because you have commitment issues.

I'd like to take issue with this statement.

I'm early-mid 30's and don't assume that someone who's in their late 30's necessarily has commitment issues as nobody's situation is going to be quite the same. You'd have to know the man/woman first before making any assumptions and it's more than likely that he or she just hasn't met the right person yet. If they're 39 and are not looking for a relationship or wants to play the field, sure run if you want, but if they're seriously trying to find someone, you could be missing out on a great person.

Not everyone is willing to settle, so yes there are single people in their late thirties because of this. Many of them are probably a great catch too as they're likely stable and estabished in many aspects of their life and know what they want.

Don't you realize that guys in their late 30's who HAVE been married could easily have commitment issues?? I mean, they're divorced, right? Personally I'd prefer a man who'd never been married before. I also prefer men in their mid to late thirties as I find that a lot of men in their 20's have commitment issues, lol. My boyfriend is 35 and he was single 1.5 yrs before we met, not due to commitment issues, he's just picky and wasn't willing to settle just for the sake of having a girlfriend.

Cheers =)

Yes it is harder. Dating over 45 is worse yet. I am confused about it and would really like some success.

YES!! Most of the ones I've spoken with are looking for baby daddies or something along those lines. Not as easy as it was 20+ years ago when I could have a date for every night of the week.

YES!! That's the one key thing about me - I know the kind of person I like, even (as superficial as this sounds) the look. I would rather stay single and enjoy life than just run out and meet anyone that emails me (or otherwise shows interest in real life).

Better for ME!!! Haha. My body hasn't changed (except I'm even more toned) and people think I'm 24 yrs old (I'm early 30's).
All that with the added bonus of knowing what I want, being secure& confident with myself, being better in bed, being established and knowing how to get what I want.
So yeah, MUCH better! =))

BTW: Another reason that I find it easier is that more men in their 30's are ready to settle down (my bf) opposed to men in their 20's.

Amen -- if one more person says "why are you single" I may throw up. Nothing wrong with me - just made good choices in life...

I'm not sure about that... in my 20's, all the girls wanted older guys... once I hit 30, they were all about younger guys. *shrug*

Fortunately, a beer doesn't care what age you are, as long as you're over 19 (in BC).

Well bc all good one are maried or divorced with kids which doesn't work for many of us or there are reasons why they were never maried unless they were is super long relationship and they just suddenly ended or divorced without kids but those are sweep so fast that u don't even hate a chance. Just pool is way way limited bc they even married or are single fathers n have no time to date. I was in 5 yrs relationship n when I got out I realized thy all guys I went for were alredy marrie or engaged or in long committed relationships. Even here been here for one yrs n didn't find one guy for relationship. Lo of sex offers but not possibility of finding love. So yeah been 3 yrs for me. And it will be close to mirracle now if I will find someone

It's not harder for me. I wasn't getting dates in my 20's either, though I did make the mistake of stupidly diving into relationships first thing, I've since kicked that habit.

Good to all of u who cares about how u look. Being attracted to someone ok migt sound a lil superficially but I have to be attracted to a person in order to get physical with them when n if it will get to that. There is no reason to let urself go single or not. Is still have my body I had back in college. About 115 at five feet seven. I work out stay active n fit. I discoverered dentist hair dresser keep my nails nice use shiver shave use nice perfume dress nicely I think. Well why would I expect anything else for myself Thow " cool" personality it that. Well one with an employment n a car too at least . And that would be my perfect match well at least potential for such. But seems impossible to find. N I don't think I am asking for something impossible
