How often should we date? 30+Page 2 of 2    (1, 2)
~OT~ I went in streaks. Sometimes often, sometimes months would pass and I wouldn't have even one thought about meeting/dating. One thing I always thought: there is NO ONE on the face of this planet that will be setting me up on a blind date. That is something that has disaster written all over it. JMO

Date as often as you want or can. There's no set amount. I'd date quite a bit,maybe make a few female friends or an FWB,then settle back for a while till the mood struck me to meet some new people. Or when my FWB dumped me.

I certainly date less as I get older, but I think I'm looking for more quality than quantity as posted above. I also work night shifts that interferes with my social life abit, sometimes I just can't meet when others want to because of my schedule. You should date within your comfort zone not by someone elses standards and that when you least expect it is a myth I think. Being setup by friends and family might work out, I try not to limit myself too much, because you might miss out on that special person, I've met some good guys through blind dates but no chemistry, try hobbies/clubs where you would have similar interests which might work.

You're trippin on your 30s? haha
You make it sound like your life is near over. Im 42 and dont feel that way.
I find it sad that you worry about family expectations and such. Dont do something crazy that you will regret later just to please someone else.

It will happen when it happens. Could be from this website, a stranger you meet walking down the street, in a bar etc. Who knows but just chill out and relax about it, wanting it too bad is not a good thing.

Good luck.!

If I could get a date I would be happy let alone worrying about how often I should be!
