The Hardships of Dating in Your 30s in Australia

As many 30+ Australian singles will know, it can be tough to pass the stage in your twenties when your group of friends have paired off and are starting to settle down, get married and have children. Dating in your 30s can be a lonely experience with fewer members of your social group still single and able to mingle with you. Additionally, it becomes harder to meet high-quality matches who share your values and interests as the pool of potential partners seems to shrink. Furthermore, it can become more difficult to know where to meet fellow singles.

However, the dating game isn’t just harder for those in their 30s because of outside factors, there’s also the difficulty of trying to maintain the right work-life balance. This makes it harder to find time to meet the right people. Thankfully there’s a better way for professional Aussies over 30 to find serious connections: online.

This is perfect for those who are career-minded and find it hard to set aside time to meet new people.

Dating in Your 30’s - 4 Expert Dating Tips

Dating in your 30s can feel like a tricky endeavour - it’s not the same as dating in your 20s, but nor is it anything like dating in your 40s or 50s. To make your search a little bit easier we’ve put together a few tips that will hopefully make your search for love as fruitful as possible.

1. Be clear about what you want

In your 30s you become surer of what you want, and it becomes even more important to be clear about what you want from a future relationship. If you want kids, be upfront about it. If you’re willing to move to be with a potential partner, bear that in mind when you set your parameters for finding matches, by being aware of what you want out of a relationship before you start searching things will be easier from the beginning, which can only be a good thing for a busy professional!

2. Be honest with yourself and to others

If you meet up with a match after chatting online and find you’re both vibing - that’s great news! On the other hand, if you find things stalling once you get to the meeting stage, don’t be afraid to walk away. If you know a relationship won’t go any further, don’t draw it out, find a kind way to tell your match that you’re not feeling it and move on - you’re not helping either of you by drawing things out.

3. Keep an open mind

While it’s important to be honest about what you want, it’s also crucial to be open to other options. Don’t be afraid to take a chance on a match who might be a little older than expected, who has kids, or has had a divorce. Remember, your mind is like a parachute - it works better when it’s open! By keeping an open mindset, you might discover a connection you otherwise would’ve dismissed.

4. Have fun!

It can feel like dating in your 30s is all serious business, with people seemingly racing to find a partner, settle down and have a family. But despite the importance of finding the right partner to compliment you and share a life with, remember to have fun along the way. Have a laugh with your match, say yes to unusual date ideas and above all – relax and enjoy yourself! After all, your match will only get to know the real you after you let your guard down.

Dating on the go

As a busy professional it can be hard to set aside the time to respond to your matches. However, the convenient EliteSingles app allows you to check your matches, send messages and change your profile on the go. What’s more, with EliteSingles already sending you 3-7 matches every day, there’s no need for time-consuming swiping and searching - the ideal solution for time-poor career-minded people looking for relationships.

Think outside the box

Working long hours and finding it hard to imagine where dating would fit in? You might just need to get creative with your date ideas instead. Rather than going for dinner, suggest grabbing breakfast instead. It’ll be a great start to the day and removes the inherent pressure of evening dates. Alternatively, if you go to the gym, perhaps your match would be interested in joining you - just make sure they’re a fellow fitness fanatic first.
