Dating late twenties
The nice part about being single for multiple years — is that you figure out more and more what you want, what you don’t and what you’re willing to compromise on.
And in some very powerful, awesome, ways, you also learn how to care less about how it all goes and expect more out of yourself and your future partner.
You worked hard through your twenties to build some kind of meaningful work.
It’s taken a while to get your act together, but now you’re able to objectively look at your life and feel quite pleased with what you’ve made of yourself.
There are some people who are important to date even if you never end up together.
They teach you things like what kind of behavior you refuse to stand for, what kind of person you'd ideally like to end up with, and that oral sex is either something you could live without or something that truly makes life worth living. But if he's a human, he's probably just looking for some late night lovin' and leavin'.
Generally speaking, the rules prevent ardent, true-love seekers from coming on too strong or from tying others down.
