Twenty-somethings, listen up. Women in their 40s and 50s are sharing their best dating advice with you, and as they were once where you are now, you’re going to want to pay attention. You can thank Redditor u/coffeenodonuts who posed the question, "Women of Reddit in their 40s and 50s, what’s the biggest suggestion you would give to women dating in their 20s?" on the r/AskWomen thread.
- "Do not marry or have kids until living solely with your partner for two years, minimum. There is a lot you will learn about them in that time, and it may not be what you like."
- "Listen to the way they speak about their ex. Not only what they say, but how they say it. It says more about them than their ex."
- "Listen to your friends. If they don’t like him, there is usually a good reason. Also, if you ever have to say 'he’s not always like this' or 'he’s just having a bad night'...if you have to make excuses, then that’s a red flag."
- "Love isn’t enough. You also need emotional support, financial stability, and shared goals. You need a partner. Love alone will have you making stupid decisions and putting yourself last. Make sure that if you’re putting yourself last, you’re with someone who’s putting you first."
- "Dating sucks, and you will kiss a lot of metaphorical frogs. But you only have to get it right once, so keep trying until you find who you are looking for."
- "Never settle. Settling is probably one of the biggest mistakes people make, in my opinion. It drains you mentally and physically."
