Read on to hear advice, commiseration, and encouragement.The biggest difference from dating in my 20s from dating in my 30s is how secure I feel with myself.Knowing this has helped me navigate dating because I know what I’m looking for and what I want and need in a partner.

It made a huge difference in how I viewed the whole process.Learning how to do things alone as the token single girl of your friendship group also helps you focus in on the non-negotiable in your relationships. It’s easy to stay with an “ok” guy because all your friends are settling down, getting married, and having families. That goes for dating older and younger than what you normally do. Focus on yourself, take opportunities, don’t be afraid to make changes in your life, and don’t feel rushed.
