Being in your twenties is an amazing time in your life. This is the time where the world is full of hope, opportunity, and new experiences to come. Unfortunately, it’s also a time where countless twenty-something singles tend to make some of their biggest mistakes in regards to finding love. Not to worry though. In this article I am going to point out some of the biggest mistakes men and women in their young twenties make, so that you can avoid them and let your love life flourish that way it should.
Typical Twenties Dating Mistakes and How to Avoid Them
Life Can’t Be All About Your Career
It’s so tempting to say, “As soon as I get my next job, I’ll focus on love.” “As soon as I get that next promotion, I’ll focus on love.” “I just don’t have time to date with all that is going on at work.”
I’ve heard all of these excuses countless times. But here is the truth of the matter. Your job won’t be there to take care of you when you are old and gray. Nor it will provide you with love and comfort when the rest of your friends have families and happy relationships. You shouldn’t ignore your career, and if you’ve worked hard to get where you are, that’s fantastic. But you need to make time for love and work, because without both, you will never feel truly fulfilled.
You Put Numbers on When Milestones Will Happen
Countless singles claim they will worry about a relationship when they are a certain age. “I’ll focus on finding a husband when I’m 28.” “I’ll have kids when I’m 32.” The harsh truth is, life doesn’t happen like that. You may tell yourself in your head that you’ll find the romance you want when you are at an age where you are ready for that, but these things don’t just happen when you snap your fingers. Your plan to wait until you are a certain age could result in countless opportunities being missed, and never actually finding that special someone.
You Tell Yourself it Will Happen When it Happens
If only life were that easy. Unfortunately, life is not like a romantic comedy. We don’t always bump into that special someone and live happily ever after. The reality of the situation is that most of us live the same daily routines every day, see the same people every day, and very rarely meet new people. You can’t just wait for romance to happen. You need to get out there and make it happen.

You Don’t Have Your Priorities Straight
You meet someone that you are really interested in, then when its time to plan a date, you postpone the date for a week because you told your friends you are getting drinks on Tuesday, you have a kickboxing class on Wednesday, and you have a friend coming in town Thursday and Friday. I understand you get busy. But in the grand scheme of things, if you really like this person, can the drinks with friends or kickboxing class be sacrificed just one week? Or even better, can you find just two hours to squeeze in for a meeting. Its okay to make sacrifices sometimes, especially when it’s for something as important as love.
