To Date Be­fore You’re 30

Some guys are meant for co-par­ent­ing pup­pies... oth­ers are bet­ter for 4am romps. For re­search pur­poses, love (and leave) these hook-ups in your 20s.

THE MAN-CHILD The Tor­tured Mu­si­cian

As the front man of an af­ter-of­fice band named The Rock­ers, this guy is un­afraid of ‘feel­ing things’...and into per­form­ing oral. But by the time you hit 30, you’ll be sick of his to­tal lack of self-aware­ness. Some gel and a leather wrist cuff do not Adam Levine make.

The Smoul­der­ing For­eigner

In your 20s, it’s to­tally okay to trump ‘he barely speaks English, and even if he did, we’d have noth­ing in com­mon’ with ‘he has the shoul­ders of a glad­i­a­tor and knows about French wine’. If you pass this guy up when you’re young and silly, you’ll end up ob­sess­ing about what you missed.

The Flashy Flash Guy

You can hear the term Bot­tle Ser­vice only so many times be­fore you run scream­ing from the club, and that prob­a­bly comes around your 30th birth­day. But in your 20s, why not hang with a hot douche in Vuit­ton shoes who ad­dresses you only as ‘baby­doll’ and makes out with you in the VIP room next to the bongo player and fire thrower?

The Older Pro­fes­sor

He should be a sil­ver fox who seems like he could play some­one’s world­weary dad in a Wes An­der­son movie. While you’re still young enough that his bag­gage is sexy—not a bur­den— the sea­soned lit pro­fes­sor is where it’s at. Be­cause by the time you’re 30, he’ll be...em­balmed.
