30 People Dropping Uncomfortable Truths About Life In Your 30s

Just like our earlier list featuring the 30 Famous People Who Didn’t Make It Until After Age 30 has shown, life doesn’t end after your twenties. On the contrary, you’re well introduced to adulthood, the dust starts settling, and you finally realize you’re getting it.

Twitter has been spending quite some time “auditing” this precious period of our lives. People have hilariously summed up what your 30s is really like time and time again, but the truth is that there are so many aspects of it, we just had to make a follow-up post.

From partying to dating and listening to music in grocery stores, continue scrolling to read this amusing crash course, and upvote and comment on your favorites while you’re at it.

Let’s see what the academic world has to say about this, shall we? One study by a British social-networking site called Friends Reunited found out that 70% of respondents over the age of 40 thought they were not truly happy until they reached 33.

“The age of 33 is enough time to have shaken off childhood naiveté and the wild scheming of teenaged years without losing the energy and enthusiasm of youth,” psychologist Donna Dawson commented on the findings.

Another study by Insurer Aviva came to similar results. They asked more than 2,000 adults what they thought the best age was to be, and the average came out as 35. While only those aged 45-54 picked that exact number, most groups chose somewhere in the 30s, except for 18-24-year-olds who thought it was 27 and those aged 65 and over who answered with 44.

However, chances are, your personality won’t change that much during this time. According to 20th-century Harvard psychologist William James, after age 30, a personality has “set like plaster.” Some research backs up this claim as well.

“The very big changes you see from early adolescence to early adulthood are greatly muted after 30, 35,” personality psychologist Paul T. Costa told New York magazine’s Science of Us. “There are still changes in personality after that, but they’re very, very modest compared to earlier phases in the life span.”

To put it simply, you’re still probably going to be the same you after you hit the big 3-0. Just an upgraded version!

This should be much higher, I can’t believe how true this is. o_O I never thought of it this way, but it actually hits the nail on the head… Thinking about what you’ve done is the worst punishment possible when you’re an adult.

Making friends as a kid. “Hey you have a blue shirt on too we’ll be best friends for life.” Making friends as an adult. “Will they rob me or use me or are they trying to get close enough to murder me…” let’s stay lonely, safe and lonely

That’s why so many of us are alone. It’s a great mix of “Gee I want more friends” plus “Fuck, these people are time/resource vampires who contribute nothing”.
