Dating in your late 20s
One of my guy friends told me he’d be happy to hear from a girl he liked, and that if the guy isn’t replying, he’s just not that into you.
It was me giving a guy a chance to reach out, and if he didn’t, it was a sign that he wasn’t right for me. Not again and again, and don’t be the only one to start a conversation, but if texting a guy is reason for him to end things, he’s not looking for a relationship.
In his defense, he wasn’t like “ok it’s been a great few days so do you want to meet my mom?
” We met for brunch and he asked what my plans were for the day.
I didn’t have any and he said he knew it was really early, but he was going to meet his mom and stepdad on a boat, and invited me to join.
We had just met so there wasn’t any pressure (also boats are fun) so I joined him. When it’s right it’s right, but if it is the relationship you’re going to be in for the rest of your life, why not pace yourself a bit?
While there are a few kinks (literally and figuratively) that come with dating after your twenties, it also has its perks.
