Talia comments on her Instagram post: I’m turning 32 this week and wanted to share some reflections on how my dating approach changed.

In my 20’s I did online dating, I met guys IRL and I had a few short relationships before I met the guy I dated for 6 years. I exited that relationship with a whole new approach and it saved me a lot of the drama, confusion, disappointment, and heartache I experienced in my early 20’s.

— In my 20's
Falling for guys who had no ability or intention to ever date me seriously.

— In my 30's
Seeing the signs early that someone wasn’t in a place to date me seriously
and walking away.

— In my 20's
Went along with my dates preferences for date activities even if I wasn’t into it.
I worried they’d reject me if I said no.

— In my 30's
Spoke up up about my preferences for date activities when I needed to.
I cared more about having fun and feeling comfortable than being liked.

— In my 20's
I jumped into bed with guys quickly, hoping to get them to be
really into me.
