As someone who is only recently engaged, and going to get married in January next year, when she is already 32, I thought I should share some tips with the other 30 Something year old single women out there.
In my 20s, my love life was a real roller coaster ride. Although very exciting, and full of self discovery, there are things I realise now, in my 30s, that I just did not heed when I was younger.
It is extremely hard to settle down with someone that doesn’t have similar ideals – you’ll clash on everything from how to spend the weekend all the way to if you want kids or not...
2. Choose Your Battles
Don't be so trigger happy. Just fight for what really does matter. When I hit my 30s, I changed from ‘I need to fight for everything’ to just fighting for things that are important. Try it. You'll fight more effectively, and when you do raise an issue, people are more likely to pay attention to it.
3. Only Date those with Potential
That means you should say goodbye to dead end relationships that you know aren’t going to go anywhere. Grow up and don't live in denial. If you don't let go of Mr Wrong, you will have less chance of finding Mr Right.
4. No More Screaming
When I was in my 20s, not only did I fight every battle tooth and nail, I would also resort to screaming at my partners. Sometimes it’s hard, sometimes you just want to have a good scream, but screaming matches with your partner all of the time isn’t healthy and it can actually mean that your relationship isn’t in a good place.
5. Know What You Are Looking For
When you are in your 30′s, you would have had the time to experiment and figure out what you want in a guy or what characteristics you are looking for . Do not hit the panic button because everyone else is getting married. Please don't settle for someone that you don't feel is right for you (and usually worse than all the other men you gave up on before!) . If you do this, your trials and heartaches so far... would have been in vain.
6. That said, also be realistic in expectations.
Don't be one of those people who gives up perfectly good men because of the silliest of things (Oh I don't like his shoes).
There's hope yet. For all of us. Just be a good person, and believe.
