Dating in early twenties
I enjoy learning new things, so I want a partner who is willing to teach me stuff.
If you’ve never really thought about what you want in a partner, then I suggest you figure it out so you can find the right fit.
When I was in my mid-20s, I wanted a partner who drove a nice car and could afford to take me to a fancy restaurant.
Although I still think these things are great, now that I’m in my 30s, I know that I want more in a partner.
The playing field is narrower and you probably carry a little more baggage.
You also likely have fewer single friends, so there's more pressure to couple up. One of my girlfriends is 35 and she just married a 27-year-old.
If you don’t let anyone in, then you won’t get hurt, right?
The top qualities that you liked about these people are what you should look for in your next relationship. This doesn’t mean you have to pull one out and wear it.Wanting all of these things is okay, but grilling every person you date to see if they have what it takes to fulfill your expectations is not.
