Dating Single Female And 30 Something

(category: Dating, Word count: 1066)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

In life I think it's fair to say that women drew the short straw enduring monthly periods, PMT, giving birth and the menopause; all producing more hormones than she, and anyone within arms length distance, can cope with.

But if she is 30 something and single the joy of being a woman doesn't stop there! She is in a race against time to meet a man (preferably sexy!), fall in love, get him to fall in love her, move in together, get married, have a baby (the latter two in no particular order as long as they happen!) and live happily ever after.

The reality though is that many women diarise "settling down" for their early 30s; devoting their 20s to getting a career, travelling, socialising and having fun. There are also the ones who, despite actively dating in search of their perfect partner since early adulthood, simply haven't found "the one".

After revelling in her 20s footloose and fancy free, from the day she hits 30 her carefree attitude screeches to an abrupt halt; Mother Nature is suddenly occupying all her thoughts and her biological clock is ticking getting faster and louder as each day, month and year passes still with no sign of "the one" entering her life.

Of course, for the 30 something single men of the world this is not a concern; nature gave them the choice to put fatherhood on hold, worry free, until their 40s, 50s even 60s. So is this why 30 something women find a gap in the dating scene and are unable to find someone of a similar age to settle down with? Are the 30 something men busy dating but staying single until later in life because they know that when the time is right (for them) reproducing won't be a problem?

It's a sad fact that society portrays 30 something single men and women completely different. 30 something single women are labelled "out of date goods left on the shelves" whereas 30 something single men are given a pat on the back and told to enjoy their freedom while they can. Although TV programmes like Sex in the City and Desperate Housewives have helped to change peoples opinions of single women over 30, the fact remains that if she wants children the natural way (i.e. without a sperm donor) she needs a man.

So with no sight of a man on the horizon, she feels under pressure not only from herself but also from those around her to get on the dating scene and meet the father-to-be of her children. Her parents will say, "Why can't she meet a good man and settle down?" her friends will say, "Shall we fix her up on a date with [John]?" and then there are the sniggering colleagues who will say, "She must be a lesbian!"

Whilst some of them may have her best interests at heart, she should not feel forced into a relationship to please everyone else. The problem she faces however is that, as a woman of the world, she knows exactly what qualities she is looking for in her partner and her standards are set so high that the men she dates often don't make the grade.

What she may have to do therefore is accept that not everyone is perfect and compromise on her "tick list". She needs to put things in perspective and ask herself if it really matters that he doesn't own a flash car or that he wears awful shoes. (It can sometimes be non-important things why women will reject a man.) She should also be careful not to discuss marriage and babies in the early dating stages; men are aware that a women in her 30s is looking for someone to father her children and if she comes across desperate, she will have most men running for the hills!

Ok, so she knows what she wants and she's willing to compromise but where will a 30 something single woman meet the love of her life? Is it at work, through friends, in a bar/club, at a party or an online dating agency?

Whilst it is recommended to explore all methods of dating in order to increase your opportunities, not all of them will appeal to everyone. Take a 35 year old friend of mine for instance whom recently became single. It's not that she didn't want to settle down in her 20s, she just didn't meet the right man. She has, however, reached the conclusion that the likelihood of meeting someone in a bar or club who is potential "marriage material" is highly unlikely.

Whilst the majority of the 30 something single men she meets are happy to flirt, probably even happier to take her to bed, they do not want to commit to a relationship and jeopardise their freedom. Other rejects consist of men already in relationships looking for no strings fun or toy boys looking to put an older woman notch on their bedpost.

Only recently she dated someone whom she met in a bar who told her he was 27 years old (still younger than her but an acceptable age she thought). If I say that they became intimate very quickly, you'll know what I mean! Whilst this was not something she would normally do, she felt a connection and it had been a while so she thought "Hell, why not!" Afterwards, she felt it only right to tell him her age. "You do know how old I am don't you?" she asked. "About 26/27?" he replied." (He certainly knew where his bread was buttered!), "No, I'm 35?. "Well I suppose it's only fair I'm honest with you too ", he continued, "I'm actually only 19?. "19!" she exclaimed. Immediately there was no future in this relationship and her hopes of finding "the one" had once again been dashed.

Turn the tables round (him 35, her 19) and it could have been a different story.... but that's for another day.

If you are experiencing similar problems finding a partner, why not give online dating a try? You will find men and women of all ages whose profiles will provide details of their age and whether they are looking for fun, love or marriage so you know from the start if you both have the same goals.

The Latitude At Free Dating Websites

(category: Dating, Word count: 342)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

I want to start this off by thanking myself for joining a free dating website. I spent so much time going to bars and clubs with my friends hoping some guy would come pick me up. I am grateful that I spent all of that time in the bar though, it taught me one thing; what type man I should stay away from!

Bars are full of creepers, you never know who's going to try and pick you up. With free dating websites you get to see who is interested in you and who you're interested in long before you go home with them. For me, using a free dating website is all about safety. My friend always left with guys from clubs, it just wasn't my style, I guess I was always too afraid. At least now I can see who I'm talking to, and learn a bit about them before hand.

I met this one guy while on a free dating website, named James about 4 days ago, he seems really nice. I got a hold of him via the messaging feature on the free dating website, because he seemed to be a very good natured, calm, intelligent man. James is very concerned about the environment, as am I, and he is trying everything he possible can to be proactive about the matters at hand. He is very conscious about current events and issues and tends to stay on top of everything he does. Hmm, that sounds good, hehehe!

Although I barely know James, actually, we've only shared a few messages, it's nice to know that I have complete control and can cut our relationship anytime. Free dating websites really give you the power to do that. If you're concerned about your safety, or really just lose interest, on a free dating website you can just tell them, "Hey, I'm not interested, sorry".

Anyways 'm still using this free dating site to converse with James, hopefully everything works out between us.

Hi all. This is Kristine.

Though we were quite close but because of our hectic work schedule we were not getting time to meet each other. I observed some changes in Stephani from the last time we met. She was looking very content and her face was glowing with happiness. While just chatting after dinner, upon my asking her Stephani told me that she found some one very special while trying her luck in free dating site. I knew my sister was fed up with getting blind dates and was looking for something new as well as innovative and serious. She came to know about the free dating site from a friend and wanted to give it a try. After trying that free dating site for a few days she received a mail from Bob and after having a look at his profile she was convinced that it matched up to her interest level. When she showed me Bob's picture; even I agreed that she found a much better deal. He looks so smart and good looking. He works as a software developer. They are going strong for quite some time.

How To Attract Women With Your Attitude

(category: Dating, Word count: 791)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

If there was one magic pill that you could pop to make yourself more attractive to women, would you take it?

Chances are, most men would give answer with a resounding yes. After all, who has the time to keep up with the countless dating advice and tips handed out by dating gurus who promise that by doing what they tell you to do, women would come in droves begging you to let them bear your children?

But since reality bites, no such pill exists. And the male species, since the beginning of civilization, has been working on making himself the object of interest and attention of his female counterparts. Even now, in this age of dating websites and speed dating the objective has not changed.

So why is it that some guys seem to get it right all the time while the rest seem to remain luckless no matter what they do? Some would say that looks and appearances had everything to do about it. But that's not entirely true.

While it may be so that how a guy looks like matters in order to catch a woman's attention, that alone will not make him totally attractive. What makes the guy go from "Hi there. You alone?" to "Good morning, doll." is his attitude.

Attitude by definition is your outlook and mindset towards any given situation. In the dating scenario, it would mean how you behave and think when it comes to approaching a woman, chatting up a conversation with her and treating her just a tad more special than the rest of the women in the room.

So what kind of attitude should you have?

A lot of guys think that they need to impress women to makes themselves attractive. While making an impression is important, you need to make sure that that impression is really you. Otherwise, your attitude towards dating shows that you would rather make false impressions and basically lie, just so that you can get what you want. Not exactly an attractive trait, isn't it?

Instead, develop the "just as I am" attitude. No pretenses, no airs - just what you really are. Very little anything else makes one more attractive to women than to see a guy that's totally honest about who and what he is.

But hold on, that is not to say that you should totally let yourself go. The "just as I am" attitude does not mean not bothering to dress up in nice clothes just because you are more of a shorts-and-flip-flops kind of guy.

Not in the least. In fact, the "as is" attitude should stay in the backstage. The main idea is that you don't need to pretend to be the sensitive writer type when you're more of a Monday night football kind of guy. But at the same time, you need to make an effort to put your best foot forward.

Do this by taking the time to look your best. You don't need to look like Hugh Jackman's long lost twin, but don't look (and smell) like a bum either. Take the time to choose clothes that fit well on you. Pay attention to body hygiene, especially if you tend to sweat and don't forget to check your breath as well. But more importantly, work on making this a habit rather than a once-in-a-while thing. That alone increases your attractive points by a whole lot.

Now that you've cleaned and dressed up, it's time to work that attitude. For example, as you approach someone, tell yourself that all you need to do to get her interested is for you to be friendly and to treat her well. You don't need to impress her with things that aren't true about you. Remember, you are to come as you are and not someone else.

If she responds, then good for you. If she doesn't seem to be interested regardless of how nice you are, that's still ok. If this happens, tell yourself that you and her don't fit and then walk away. At the very least, the woman you just approached will notice that you knew when to stop. Surprisingly, on a second encounter, she just might give you a better chance, just because you showed restraint the first time you met.

Now this isn't a foolproof plan that can help you score with the ladies. But it is a lot better than pretending to be something that isn't you. Developing a healthy confident attitude about yourself will not only make you more attractive to the right women around you, but will also help you personally as you begin to see yourself in a better light.

Is Online Dating For Me

(category: Dating, Word count: 500)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Dating online is the latest and easiest way of coming in contact with the new people all around the world. It

currently occupies the largest proportion of paid up advertisement on the web. Why? because they provide

easy access to social interaction with new and interesting people. People you would probably never get a

chance to meet otherwise.

Meeting people in cyberspace is not comfortable for everyone. There are of course safety concerns. A

danger of online dating is the threat of online scams. It is not unknown for unscrupulous con artists to con lonely

people out of large sums of money, but this is very rare. There is also the chance that the person you hook

up with may be dangerous, but that possibility also exists in the bar scene or anywhere else.

The BTK killer was active in his church. John Wayne Gasey was a pillar of the community, being groomed

by influencial friends to run for city councel. I'm not trying to scare anyone away from dating all together. I

just want to stress, with normal precautions, online dating is as safe as meeting people offline.

Online dating is a actually misnomer, people don't really "date" online, they simply meet there. The idea

of a lonely geek all alone at his computer typing away to his online girlfriend who is actually a 300 pound

transvestite is a common image that makes many people turn their noses up at online dating sites.

This image could not be futher from reality. Almost 31% of Americans know someone who has met a partner online. 15% of Americans, that's about 30 million people, say they know someone who has been in a long-term relationship with or has married someone they met online.

Dating online, or hooking up online actually, isn't just for teenagers and young adults. Many seniors have found it a lot less stressfull than diving back into the dating scene after the death of a spouse. Could you imagine trying to hook up with the widow of a deceased friend, or schleping out to a bar or club after years of going home to a pair of loving arms. I can't. The ability to chat and get to know someone before you actually meet can greatly reduce the anxiety.

Not all online dating sites are the same. Some act as introduction services while others are matchmaking

sevices that focus on long-term relationships and marriage. Dating sites are simply a method of meeting

people. Isn't that what it's all about?

We live in a world where everyone is busy. If not on a demanding career path, then simply trying to make ends meet. Most of us don't have the time or energy left to comb the singles bars every night or attend church socials every weekend. Those options are often fruitless for most of us anyway.
