FOX新闻:不同年龄恋爱心态也不同

TRANSCRIPT
Fox on love, with Ashley Papa. How we think about dating in our teens and 20's is a lot different than in our 30's and 40's. Different age group - different “love” mindset, says relationship coach and podcast host, who goes by the name G-Fem, who's observed a pattern in relationship views: “Age 18 through 23, this first category is less concerned about serious relationship or dating a serious individual.” G-Fem says this group is about having fun and isn't thinking long term relationships.

The mindset seems to change towards your late 20's: “27 to 31, they have gone through some bad relationships. They are wiser, learned a little about the other sex and can easily describe who their ideal partner should be. In other words, they're thinking more about the long-term.” “31 to 35, they are avid lovers of everything about relationships (books, seminars, movies, radio/TV programs). They know who they want and who they don't want.”

By 40, it's all about marriage and finally settling down, if they haven't yet.

With FOX on Love, I'm Ashley Papa.
