I have been single for some time now, and it has been quite the journey. I am in my early thirties, and I know that I am not the only one in my age group who is single.
I have been on a few dates with people who are much younger than me, and I want to share my experience to warn others.
Thinks that dating someone too young and immature is tiring
I am of the opinion that dating someone too young is not a good idea. I believe this is because they are often still immature, and this can often lead to arguments and fights over little things and honestly speaking, it is very tiring/
I also think that those in my age group are more mature and better suited to me. However, most of the people my age are already attached or married.
It was clear to me that if I wanted to find someone to date, I would need to look outside of my age group. This is why I started to date someone much younger than me.
However, we ended up arguing and fighting over small matters all the time. I realized that I had made a mistake in thinking that she was mature enough for the relationship.
I think that this is because no matter the age, some people are just not ready to commit to a relationship.
I also realized that it is not only the age gap that can cause issues in a relationship, but also the maturity levels of the people involved.
I think that if two people are at the same maturity level, then age does not matter. However, if one person is more mature than the other, then there can be a problem.
Wants to find someone around the same age, but mostly taken up
In the end, I decided that I would be better off dating someone closer to my own age. I think that this is because there is a better chance of finding someone who is at the same maturity level as me.
I also think that it is easier to build a stronger connection with someone who is closer to my own age.
Then, the problem comes again because people around my age are mostly already attached or married and some even have kids already.
