Dating Tips You Wish You Knew Earlier

When you get a little older, in your 30’s say, there are things that you learn that you wish you knew when you were in your 20s. Things that seem common sense to you now might have been a mystery earlier in life. Here are some dating tips you know you wish you knew about dating in your early days when you were just getting out there.

  1. Be Bold. Putting yourself out there is a good thing. When you were 20 you may have been scared to say what you really wanted in life. Now that you’re older, you know that it’s OK to ask for what you want…because that’s how you get it!
  2. Be Yourself. This is probably the most doled out dating advice ever. Just be yourself. You may have been scared that people would judge you when you were starting out, but now that you’re older you know there are people out there who are right for you. Even though you may have strange interests or unique hobbies, someone else does too and they’re probably waiting on the other end of a Talk121 chat line.
  3. Don’t Rush. Rushing into things is something that happens a lot in relationships that involve people in their early 20’s. They burn up all the relationship energy too quickly and things easily fall apart. People who are older know that good things take time to age into perfection.
  4. Relationships and dating should feel good. In your early years, you probably enjoyed tumultuous relationships with lots of drama. Now that you’re older, you know that feeling bad doesn’t equal love, it equals a bad relationship or hook up!

These tips are things that are good to remind yourself of, even if you’re already at the age where you’ve learned these lessons long ago.
