The musings of a 30 something singleton

“What is an acceptable age gap”? is question that has come up repeatedly in my conversations with my friends. This is of course very personal and everybody has their own preference. My own personal view is don’t go out with anyone more than 15 years older or more than 10 years younger. Older men are very attractive because they usually have a good career, income and lifestyle and generally “know what they are doing” in dating and in the bedroom.

Stop it with the isolationist bullshit. Everyone’s “thing” should be finding and basking in true romantic love.

Where can we expect our meet cute to happen if we’re all so scared of approaching people in real life?

Meet Cute: a scene in which the two people who will form a future romantic couple meet for the first time.

‘Playing’ Tinder is our latest boredom buster. One of the many dating apps we forget about until we realise we haven’t had any easily accessible attention for a while. We post half naked pictures onto our Instagram feeds because we revel in the fleeting appreciation we get from random strangers. Most of us leave our profiles on public because we enjoy being seen by others. But…
