Fun at thirty dating
Yes, the woman fit for The Total Package will be the ultimate icing on his cake of perfection.
He imagines her often—gorgeous as they come, she turns heads; bursting with charm and charisma, she lights up every room she enters; she’s a brilliant rising star in her career and beloved by her many friends.
He’s not really sure how to be single but he’s goddamn happy he is, and he’s sure as hell going out tonight.
If you want a case study in humanity, 30-year-old single guys have pretty much all the bases covered.
Let’s examine some of the common types: The Total Package is smart—he went to a top college.
The Total Package is an athlete, a musician, and an avid traveler.
The Total Package is handsome—and you better believe he’s well-groomed.
He never seemed that happy in the relationship, but everyone just assumed they would eventually get married.
Now, after a long and difficult breakup, The New Lease On Life Guy has reemerged with a bang and is suddenly acting like he just got called down on The Price Is Right.
And that’s just her public persona—at home, she’s fantastic in bed, a spectacular cook, loving, selfless, and devoted. He’s immersed in a fierce battle between his superhuman standards and his terror of being 40 and single—because 40 and single is not supposed to be part of The Total Package’s story.
Oh and she also speaks French, plays tennis, sings beautifully, reads voraciously and she’s a history buff. As long as anyone can remember, The New Lease On Life Guy had been dating his longterm girlfriend.
Find me a group of 30-year-old men and I’ll pick out one overgrown frat dude living with roommates, another guy who just dropped his two kids off at school, a few who are well into their careers and a couple soul-searchers looking for work.
Some will tell you that they’ve finally figured it all out and some more will say they feel hopeless for the first time in their lives. But perhaps the motliest part of this crowd is the ever-growing group of 30-year-old single guys.
