Not dating in your 20s
"The 20-something scene typically means going to a loud bar to meet singles.
The 30 somethings tend to do activities they enjoy that offer exposure to other singles like, running groups, art classes or volunteering," said Jaime Bernstein, a senior matchmaker for the professional matchmaking startup Three Day Rule.
Some of these might not have ended amicably, and could have involved being cheated on or feeling violated in another way."This is when dating services come in handy, to find the others that are available and ready to date." Laura Ryan, a licensed marriage and family therapist, certified hypnotherapist, and certified Imago Relationship Therapist agreed."Many eligible men have now gotten married or are in long term relationships because nesting and settling down is something that starts to happen in your late 20s and people begin to marry and have children in their 30s," she said."It's possible that you may bump into someone who is age appropriate who wants the same things, but it's difficult to navigate the apps when it comes to figuring out the other person's goals. " Brandyce Stephenson, the owner of a marketing consulting business and self-proclaimed "single gal in her 30s" who lives in West Palm Beach, Florida agreed.
She told me that traditional dating apps don't have what she's looking for.
"Your pool of girlfriends also shrinks because many of them are now married and/or have children, so they are less inclined to want to go out for half-price Margaritas with you on a Tuesday." With fewer potential partners to choose from and no wing woman, things can be a little tough.
