Dating and the 30-Plus Man

Aug 17, 2007
Single men in their thirties are a breed apart from guys in their twenties.

Experience brings substance and wisdom, and the 30-plus man has them in spades. He has a clear-cut idea of what he wants out of life and how to get it.

He may or may not have outgrown his penchant for meaningless but steamy casual sex, but the 30-plus single male will surely have started thinking of the Big Picture: marriage, children, a family, the future.

The thing is, although he may know what he loves in a woman, he isn't really sure what kind of woman he wants and where he can find her.

The following guide should help the 30-plus guy find the girl of his dreams and, just as important, avoid the stuff of his nightmares. At the very least, even if this list won't lead him to Ms. Right, it may bring him to Ms. Right Now, which is never bad. After all, you never know where that can lead...

Bear in mind that a different type of woman is ideal for different relationship scenarios. Now, which of this women are you looking for?

(1) Career Women
She's the woman with a plan, and that's to reach the upper echelons of the career she has chosen. As such, she follows a tight schedule and men may not rank high in the greater scheme of things. On the other hand, her ambition has led to a life of prosperity, filled with material wealth and comforts. She's a nice catch if that's what's important to you.

(2) The "Clock is Ticking" Women
She's the woman who can feel her biological clock ticking and her chances for a family and children slipping away. There is nothing she wants more than to get married and, if you share the same outlook, marital bliss may just be a few flirting sessions away.

However, if you have no intentions of getting hitched in the next year or two, better to avoid this one. One clue to spotting this woman is that sooner or later she will ask you how you feel about kids.

(3) Divorced Women
The divorcee is easy to spot because she will tell you up front that she's divorced. She is likely to tell you a lot of negative things about her former mate as well and how happy she is to be single again. She may or may not want to be married again, but if you're in the mood for some vengeful sex, then carry on.

(4) Women on the Rebound
These women just wanna have fun. They want to dance and sing and play all day long, go to ball games, have a few drinks, anything to get her mind off her ex. She is likely going to be an intense, short-term affair, but that's not always a bad thing.

(5) "Forever Single" Women
She's having too much fun in her life to get married, or so she will say. Often, women like this really don't know what they want out of life so they refuse to make any commitments.

They are usually fun to be around but sometimes demand to be entertained. She can be a little flighty and a little weird, but they're great to have as friends.

(6) "Sugar Daddy" Women
She's the material girl that Madonna used to sing about. Usually a good-looking young thing who wants to be pampered. She's great in bed and would look good wrapped around your arm in public, but she comes with a high price tag. How to spot her? She will likely ask you how much you make and ask you to buy all sorts of gifts.

So guys, there you go. Which one is your cup of tea?
