Feel like you’re too old to be in the dating scene? That’s where you’re wrong. In a study of over 450,000 online daters by EliteSingles, researchers discovered that younger men aged 20 to 29 are more interested to go out with women who are older than them.
Of course, that’s not to say that women feel the same. The same study shows that many women, older and younger, prefer dating men who have a number of years on them.
But young or old, mature or immature, the world is your dating oyster, you gorgeous 30-something you, and here's why!
You can read men like the back of your hand.
You've been on this carousel for more times than you can count, and it has reached a point where you've stopped overthinking and worrying about each mixed signal. Now you see the bigger picture and enjoy it as you should.
You prioritize yourself.
Guilt can’t help your jerk date wheedle another date out of you. You put yourself first and that means saying no when you don’t feel like saying otherwise.
You have a better idea of what you want.
You know yourself a little better than you did a decade ago. You’re also more comfortable with yourself, whether that means acknowledging what your type is—whether it’s guys who read or work out—or knowing just how far you’ll go on a first date.
