Dating late twenties dating a former coworker

Perhaps this in part because of the recession, but who wants to hear any more about how much that messed things up for this generation (nobody has any money, many of us live in flat shares, our post-recession careers aren’t really in full swing yet and, interestingly, rather a lot of young men still live at home with their parents into their late 20s and early 30s). Sex and The City, Friends and Bridget Jones – around which Western singles' culture calcified in the early 00s – were written in a pre-online dating, pre dating app world.

We would all, at some point, be living alone in flat with a living room.

And, unless we fell into the feckless ‘Carrie’ category, we would probably own that flat. According to the Office for National Statistics in 2014 only 28% of households in the country contained just one person.

And yet, the end game for every character turned out to be a conventional, heterosexual relationship.

The show, when it finished, saw the lives of Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte neatly tied up with the sort of happy ending that you don’t always get in life.

Another good point was then made, ‘I always feel like it’s shit on your friends when you pull on nights out, it’s boring for them.

Plus, I find the whole process a bit demeaning and completely ridiculous. I’m too old to be that girl kissing someone in the smoking area of a club now.’ FYI the person who said this has only just turned 27.

The number of people across this country as a whole who are single is estimated to be ‘well below’ 40%.

Indeed, contrary to what pop culture’s portrayal of single women might have lead you to believe there are, officially, more single men than women in England and Wales, across all of the age groups. Where there are, in fact, more single women than men in many places.

‘Well, we did a bit at university, maybe’ the other said.
