30 is the New 20 for Modern Dating and Singles

Roughly ten or twenty years ago, if we hadn’t started a family and were not married by our late twenties or early thirties it was considered out of the ordinary. Parents would start to wonder whether their children had missed the boat and had all but lost the opportunity to settle down and have a family.



Twenty years ago, the most common age to marry was  22. The average age nowadays is 29.  Factors such as a rising cost of living, more social options and a  general acceptance from society to remain available and single for longer has created the option for today’s singles to stay single. In recent times 30 something’s are adopting the same trends as 20 something’s.



Much of the 30 + age group is remaining at home with their folks. 10 years ago this would have stirred gossip among ones peers and would have been considered alittle odd. In the old days you were virtually booted out of home immediately after leaving school. Today’s singles are pursuing their uni degrees and not leaving home to sure up their financial security before moving out. Additional after school studies are seeing more and more singles in their late 20s – early 30s staying under the wing of their parents.



This recent pattern has also effected the romance and sex lives of today’s singles in that they are still dating as often however they are looking at ways to meet new people that fit in with their new and increasingly common living arrangements. Singles travel is becoming more and more popular as is the internet and online dating services. Social networking has taken this next generation by storm and many see this as their only social outlet. The internet and online dating sites offer privacy that living at home with our Mum and Dad doesn’t



Many singles are delaying committing to financial decisions and are pursuing their education which can lead to a small income throughout their study years. A small income can sometimes restrict our social potential. The internet and online dating offers cheap dating options and some online dating sites offer free dating for their members. The chance for internet users to expand their social options online with little or even no expense sees many aged in their late 20s or early 30s with small incomes taking up this option.


A high number of 30 year olds believe that life starts in their 30s. We have published some interesting comments by some 30 + year olds which can give some of us food for thought.


“I hit the big 3 0 last week. If you’ve just made it to the big 3 0 recently then I’m sure you can relate. I’ve heard recently and often that 30 is the new 20, but I’m sure I didn’t worry when I turned 20, so why should turning 30 change the way I think? It is my opinion that age is all in your head. Actually, its just an arbitrary time. We are actually measuring the number of times we rotate around the sun… and that’s the bottom line.  I am mostly happy of what I’ve done with my 30 years here on earth. I always try to lead a satisfying life, I try and stay in good health and I adore my partner and daughter… what else matters? See you again in 2009! (when I’ll turn 30 once again) “


There wont be too many who don’t agree that life in today’s day and age is harder than say 30 – 40 years ago. There are far more daily pressures. There is much to be said about the simple life and being content with the free things our earth offers.
