When the show debuted in , I was just Now, when I watch it as a single woman in her 30s, it hits a little closer to home. I identify with the characters and their struggles so much more than I did before, because dating in your 30s is very different than dating in your 20s. 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. If you recently became single or just turned 31 and are beginning to notice how dating has changed, you came to the right place.

This post comes to us via Carly Jacobs of Smaggle fame. Follow along with her awesomery on Facebook or Instagram! At the ripe old age of twenty-six, my delicious man is four years younger than me, making him a slightly cringe-worthy twenty-two. While this age gap is not shocking, it sounded a lot worse four years ago when I was twenty-two and he was… um… eighteen… anyways…. I must preface this manifesto with a disclaimer that not all behaviors outlined below have been displayed by my man.
Only some…. You made your choice. Embrace it. End of story. It is fabulous being the arm candy of a younger man. Make the most of it. I promise. If you date a younger man you must understand what you have signed on for. Be honest and cut him some slack.

Your twenties are about discovering who you are, or working out who you want to be. Somehow you have to blend them all into one coherent wardrobe while at the same time clinging onto your fading youth and physique more desperately than a Rolling Stone. On the one hand, you have more money to spend, and a respectable wardrobe already pre-assembled.
At this midlife crunch point, many guys either give up altogether, or stubbornly continue to dress like the teenagers they wish they still were.
Now, when I watch it as a single woman in her 30s, it hits a little closer to home One of my girlfriends is 35 and she just married a year-old.
When I was younger I got my heart broken by an older woman. No matter what I said, or what nice things I did for Karen, she was out of my league since I was younger. Karen was a 17 year old junior, and I was an incredibly good looking and intelligent 16 year old. This is exactly what my mom told me every time I brought her cupcakes. The rejection was devastating until a bright light named Stephanie joined my high school as a freshman.
In fact, Stephanie was even more beautiful than her older sister, and I just had to pursue. For one semester, Stephanie and I had a frolicking good time. We hung out after school together almost every single day.
Why Modern 30-Year-Old Women Look Younger Than They Used To
For women over 30, dating can be a minefield. There are fewer single people generally, and yes, there will be some men your age specifically seeking out younger women. We live in a society that worships at the altar of youth — particularly when it comes to women. Indeed, because women have primarily been valued for their beauty, a concept deeply rooted in ideas of youth, women are socially devalued as they get older.
These deeply gendered value systems normalise older men seeking out younger women, because if we value men for what they acquire, and treat women as objects, of course some men are going to view women as another symbol of their status, and want the most desirable model. Everyone has a learning curve, and just like you, most people want to be bowled over by someone amazing.

I am officially the last single person in my friend group. How did this happen? It feels like just yesterday we were being rejected from Raya , and now suddenly everyone is scouting for wedding venues upstate —except me. When I was younger, I took it for granted that my friends would always be available for hungover brunches and emergency threesomes.
For instance, for years now my friends and I have spent summer weekends at a shared beach house on Fire Island. I get that they want to have sex on their vacation, but where am I supposed to jerk off? This is my vacation too, people! As a millennial feminist, allow me to run with this victim thing. Last week I had a new air conditioner delivered, only to realize that it was too heavy for me to carry up four flights of stairs to my apartment. So, being single, I had to hire a random man from the Internet to carry it for me.
For one, the stakes are higher. Not ideal. Essentially, we are far more discriminating in our 30s than we were in our 20s, which is both a blessing and a curse. But I keep turning corners, and I keep meeting finance guys with high cholesterol who just discovered Williamsburg.
What you want to know about dating in your 30s

Once you reach 30, you’ve officially achieved grown-ass woman status. Woop, woop! However, there are some super weird things that come with dating after your twenty-something days are behind you. If you’re Jess from New Girl, that means asking a construction worker to go as your date on a double date with the guy you’ve been seeing, who apparently is seeing other people. But in the real world, the weird stuff actually involves having to explain why you’re single during a date, trying to actually pencil in a date when you have a killer career and family priorities, and dodging increasingly inappropriate comments about your love life from family.
Here, women who’ve been there, done that share the strangest things that come with dating as a year-old boss lady. It’s four people in a relationship, not just two. Though I’ve found that even people on the apps aren’t always interested in serious relationships. And then there are the guys who message you via the apps to ask ‘Why are you single?
