Things You Should Know About Dating by the Time You’re 30

Don’t Assume Your Dating StatusYou’ve been dating for two months and things are going well. You’re happy, he seems content, and you told your mom about him. You’re thinking this could get serious. At this point, it might be a good idea to see how he’s actually feeling. A simple “Are you seeing anyone else?” goes a long way in clarifying the direction of your relationship. Some people would say you shouldn’t assume the guy you’re seeing is single at all, that some creeps are in relationships or married and routinely try to You’ve been dating for two months and things are going well.

A simple “Are you seeing anyone else?” goes a long way in clarifying the direction of your relationship. Some people would say you shouldn’t assume the guy you’re seeing is single at all, that some creeps are in relationships or married and routinely try tosee other people on the side. I’d like to think those jerks are few and far between. In any case, though, it’s easy to weed out the losers by simply asking whether you’re his only lady….

Flowers Are a GivenRemember the first time a guy bought you flowers? Likely not. Because hopefully, many guys have done it since. These types of gestures are signs a man is thinking of you—and often. Grabbing flowers, chocolates, or other simple things is a guy saying he cares about making you happy and knows this small move will go a bit further than normal to make sure that’s the case. You should not have to hope the guy you’re seeing is thinking fondly of you; you should be confident he frequently is. If he’s not making sweet gestures here and there, then things may not be going as well as you think. Remember the first time a guy bought you flowers? Likely not.

You won’t just meet “the one” and never have a fight and get along famously with his family. Things will be tough. But more importantly, true happiness comes from self-sufficiency. If you cannotlove yourself, you will not be able to love another person. Don’t search for something in a man you need to develop in yourself. Don’t hope he rounds out your own flaws. Get to know and befriend yourself, and let that be the foundation for any romantic relationship that comes your way., you will not be able to love another person.

But that’s one form of “it.” That period when you are getting to know each other and are still unsure of what magic might be developing is fun. So no need to make it too easy on the guy when you initially start dating. Keep him on his feet; unattainable is a good quality to have at first, and the good guys will stick around and pursue you. Those who are impatient aren’t the ones you would have enjoyed anyway.When you begin dating someone, the fact that you like him doesn’t mean you should give it up. “It” in this case isn’t necessarily sex.

With that said, men tend to respect women who not only are okay hanging out on their own but desire that. I remember when I first starting talking to my girlfriend about us living together. She said, “I love you. But fair warning: I also really enjoy my own company.” I was smitten, even more so than before. Space is a good thing. Saying you need to do your own thing from time to time is actually a turn-on for most men (it means that you’re not co-dependent). …pt 2 coming soon….

My boyfriend is very ugly and poor, is he capable of cheating on me?

My boyfriend never remembers our anniversaries, but last week he gave me a present and when I asked why, he said that he just “wanted to make me happy”.Then he drove me to a friend’s house and offered to pick me up later. That night, my mum called and said he’d gone to visit her and gave her a pot plant. He also asked her if she wanted him to take her shopping.I don’t know what to do.I don’t want to refuse his kindness, but he’s acting strange.

My cheating ex-boyfriend is too good in bed, I just can’t move on.

I’m 26 and I split up with my boyfriend nearly three years ago. It didn’t end very well.I found out he was cheating on me with a 17-year-old girl and not long after that he decided to leave me for her.This was my first serious relationship. We were together for four years, but after only a year we seemed to be constantly rowing. I loved him, though, and I still care for him.Anyway, three years on and I’ve been on numerous dates with decent guys, but I always find something to pick at or something I don’t like about them.I find it very hard to trust/let any new man into my life. I thought I had moved on.When my relationship ended I did things for me. I started going to the gym, got my driving licence and so on, but I still feel there’s a big hole where he was.And I feel like I’m never going to be able to move on. I’m a nice genuine girl who just wants to be happy and loved, but I’m not allowing anyone to do this. Is there any advice you can give me?See Also:64-year-old sugar mummy dumped by her 26-year-old boyfriend after she secured a visa for himColeen saysStop panicking and stop assuming that your life is only complete with someone else in it.
