5 Reasons Dating In Your 30s Is Not What You Expected

August 03, 2015 3 min read

We all know your 20s is the time to have your fun. To sow your oats should you feel so inclined. Some people find their rock in the midst of their fun time but some people manage to crest 30 without a life partner. When you hit your 30s, it is like life is supposed to unfold perfectly. You're an adult, you've made it and you're ready but sometimes it is far from being that simple. Here are 5 waysthat dating in your 30s looks nothing like you thought it would:

1. Organically forming relationships is rare.

So much dating today occurs online. In that environment, so much is based on looks. It is hard to look at an online profile and judge the person on personality. And when you do meet up, s/he is probably dating other people or still poking around on Tinder. Knowing you aren't the only option changes the stakes in the dating world.

2. Age is not just a number.

In your 30s? Well, maybe steer clear of dating anyone in their early 20s. The years between you may not seem like much, but the difference in life stages is hard to bridge. Someone just out of college looks at life far differently than someone with a career and a mortgage, for example.

3. Fewer people are looking for long-term relationships.

Okay, so long term relationships may not be the issue per say but we have come to really love our single lives. I'm 34 and I would love to have someone in my life. It does get lonely sometimes but at the same time, I LOVE my life the way it is. I enjoy my 'me' time. Perhaps I'm stuck in the world of instant gratification and can't break out of a causal dating cycle. Maybe not. I don't know. But, I do know that I am not alone.

4. You will feel like an outsider.

Sometimes, you wonder if being single in your 30s is some sort of cosmic joke. It seems everywhere you look in life, people are getting married and having babies. And you, well, you're still looking. Or not, or maybe yes, if the right person comes along -- if you're like me, it changes with the weather. But the older you get, the more you see those 'couples' nights happening or 'couples' vacations. It is terrible to be uninvited to things. Sometimes, it is worse to be invited. Nothing like being a third or fifth wheel. But it is important to remember, you aren't really an outsider. We all have our own lives to lead.

5. You will be weary.

Being single in your 30s sometimes feels like a failure. All your dating efforts to date have clearly not worked out. But you don't have to view it that way. You had (and still are, perhaps) trying to figure out what exactly it is you are looking for. You have to make mistakes to sort it all out. Don't regret, don't be ashamed. Hold your head up. It all works to make you a better person on your own and a better potential partner to someone else. Are you single in your 30s? What are your feelings on the subject? Do you follow us on Instagram?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
