Ever wonder what a twenty-something year old is looking for in a mate? How about a woman her 30’s, 40’s, are even 50’s? If so, check out these general tips for dating women of all ages.


The 20’s

In general, individuals in their 20’s are focused on getting an education and establishing new careers.  Partying and socializing are also popular activities, and the 20’s are a fun and carefree time for many people. Many twenty-something couples get married and begin to settle down, while others play the field and avoid serious relationships. If you’re dating a woman in her 20’s, determine whether or not she is seeking a serious relationship and if your dating intentions match hers.    


The 30’s

Men and women in their 30’s have a better idea of what they want in a mate and are more willing to settle down than a person in his or her 20’s. For many, finding a spouse and starting a family becomes a bigger priority than carefree partying and casual dating. However, some thirty-somethings are not interested in family life and may choose to pursue other goals. If you are dating a lady in her 30’s, it’s important to understand her hopes and goals for the future (marriage, kids, career, etc.). If the two of you have vastly different plans, you may want to re-evaluate your relationship to avoid future heartbreak.


The 40’s

Individuals in their 40’s are typically more secure (financially, emotionally, etc.), know what they do and do not like in a mate, and are unwilling to play foolish games. Many forty-somethings have also been married at least once, so children and ex-spouses may also be part of the picture. If you are dating a woman in her 40’s, be willing to accept her past (children, divorces, and all) and make sure she is willing to do the same for you. As always, be sure the two of you are on the same page when it comes to the future of the relationship. 


The 50’s

Fifty-somethings enjoy a relatively stable life and are typically interested in finding a true companion. Much like people in their 40’s, many fifty-something men and women have been married at least once before and are re-entering the dating scene. For many, shared interests and common goals are more important in a potential mate than looks (though physical attraction is always important). If you’re dating a lady in her 50’s, find common interests to share and enjoy your time together.
