Meeting people while in consulting and in your early 30s...? Possible?

I did! Similar to McK1’s friend - I had a pretty disciplined approach to meeting people on Tinder. Am 33 now and been married for 2 years after dating for another 2 (we met when I was 30). But the main difference is I applied the same intentional approach to dating as I did to work and planned ahead and not left things to chance. Am also a pretty successful partner in consulting as well so it can happen! I planned such that I bought a house, got married and made partner when I was 31. So it can happen - but you need to plan and work towards it. Of course luck plays a role but planning for it also helps!

My best friend was really successful, but formulaic and intentional about it. Would line up 3-4 dates for the weekend, first date always a coffee date in the morning (she used to do b2bs), second date drinks Sat afternoon. Never spent her Friday or Saturday on a date, always with friends. Took about 6 months but since been super happy with someone she’s been with for 2 years

Guess she never dated a night person, was that her preference ?
