Meeting new people and dating can be a little challenging once you hit your 30s, but it doesn’t have to be a daunting task. I’ve been in the same boat, and I’m here to tell you that it’s absolutely possible to find love, companionship, or simply new friends at this stage in life.
In this blog post, I will share some tips and techniques that have worked well for me and countless others; these insights should boost your confidence in the dating world. Let’s explore the ways that can lead you straight to a fantastic man in your 30s, proving that age is just a number.
Get Out of the House
Looking for love in your thirties? Don’t worry! There are plenty of methods:
- Don’t stay at home – go out and look for it!
- Try online dating, or go to events.
These are great ways to get a man in your 30s.
Join a club or organization
In your 30s and seeking to meet a man? Joining a club or organization may be the answer! Choose any kind of group activity that appeals to you – softball, painting classes, book clubs, volunteer work, church committees, etc. Men will get to know your interests and have the chance to talk to you. Plus, you’ll make friends outside of social media who share the same hobbies and goals.
When you bond with people in the group, it’ll be simpler for them to mention any relationship prospects. Lastly, remain positive! Nothing is more alluring than someone with a sunny outlook and enthusiasm.
Attend events in your area
Be adventurous and get out of the house! When in your 30s, it’s a great way to meet someone new. Try attending special events such as:
- Art gallery openings
- Book readings
- Community service projects
- Networking/business meetings
- Music/food/wine festivals
- Picnics/social gatherings
These events will give inexperienced daters an easier ‘in.’ Everyone is there for the same purpose: to have a good time! It’s a great way to assess who you’d like to know better and you’ll have fun trying something new and meeting people. Remember: seeking true love takes effort, but it’s worth it!
Join a dating site
Dating sites offer a fast way to meet someone new. You can narrow down your preferences, so you find someone who shares the same values and goals as you. You decide who and when to chat, no pressure or awkwardness like in a social setting. Plus, dating sites are secure and user-friendly. Most allow you to join for free and trial the service before spending money.
With hundreds of singles available, it’s hard to miss out on finding the right man!
Take Care of Yourself
Are you 30s and seeking a man? Best to start with yourself! Ensure your mental, physical and spiritual health is in check. That could mean taking care of your needs: get enough sleep, eat healthy and practice mindfulness. When you feel good, you’ll be more attractive and confident. This will draw in the opposite sex!
In your 30s, exercise is even more important for your health. It keeps you strong and in shape. Plus, it releases endorphins that improve your mood and give you perspective.
Exercise is a great way to meet people and possibly the man of your dreams!
To make sure you get enough exercise, find a routine and stick with it. Include rest days, so your muscles can recover. Plan ahead: make room during the week for a workout.
Mix it up! Try
- weight training
- dance classes
Stay fit while having fun!
Eat a healthy diet
Nutrition is key for a healthy lifestyle. Eating balanced meals with fruits, veg, and whole grains can help you look and feel your best. In your 30s, it’s even more important to pay attention to what you eat. It can have a huge impact on energy, attitude, mental awareness and even physical looks.
Focus on lean proteins, healthy fats like olive oil and avocado, and complex carbs like quinoa or brown rice. Get plenty of fiber from oatmeal and beans, plus fresh fruit and veg. Avoid processed foods or food with added sugar. Eating right will not only make you look good but also boost self-confidence when meeting new people.
Apart from eating nutritiously, make sure to:
- Drink enough water
- Get enough sleep (7-8 hours)
- Exercise every day
This way, you’ll be full of energy and feel great when coming across someone new!
Take time for yourself
Want to up your chances of finding a great man in your 30s? Give yourself the priority and take time each week for yourself. Do activities that bring mental and physical health, relaxation and clarity. Go for a run or walk with friends, have brunch with family, take an art class, or try something else that relaxes and refreshes. Treat yourself to something nice like new clothes or a spa day to lift your confidence.
Above it all, let yourself get out there and make meaningful connections with potential partners – and have fun doing it!
Single gals in their thirties often find it hard to meet Mr. Right. But if you want to increase your odds, getting out and about can be a brilliant idea.
Get social by joining a local hobby group, taking a class, or attending a networking session. These tips can help you find the perfect man in your thirties:

Before joining a Meetup group, check the descriptions carefully. This way you can get the group that’s best for you. If you have queries, you can write to the organizer. Get ready to discover new things and have a great time!
Ask friends and family to introduce you to someone
Asking friends and family to introduce you to someone can be scary. But, it is a good way to meet a man in your 30s! Tell those in your close circle that you are looking for someone special. If they know any single males who fit your criteria, they can help set up a meeting. Romance – your friends and family know best!
Don’t worry that you’ll need to always rely on them for introductions. It’s just a great way to start and match with potential partners.
- Plus, when others set you up, you will already know some information about each other before meeting. This gives you an advantage and no major surprises (unless one has an exciting job title!).

When dating in your 30s, it’s key to be yourself. Don’t try to be someone else, despite what dating profiles may suggest. Show self-confidence and courage. These are attractive qualities, regardless of age. If someone sees you’re secure in who you are and what you believe, they’ll likely be drawn to you. Own who you are and don’t settle for anything less than perfect for you!
When meeting a potential mate, be honest about yourself. Don’t pretend to be someone else. Make it clear what you want. Honest people find better matches.
Show your strengths, weaknesses, interests, and goals. That way, the right person can find you. Good relationships come from understanding each other.

It can be liberating to approach relationships without worries of settling for anyone. What counts is the connection and the understanding you share with someone. This could lead to something amazing and unexpected!
