Date a girl that doesn’t fit your normal type. If you’re straight laced, ask out the girl with the tattoos and piercing. If you grew up in a sheltered suburb, ask out a girl with a different ethnicity than yours. The older you get, the harder it is to keep an open mind toward others. You might even find out that what you thought you wanted in a girl is all wrong. But if anything, you’ll have a little adventure and learn a bit more about what you want in a longterm relationship.
Join a protest for a cause you’re passionate about. There’s a good chance that you won’t care so much when your kids are screaming in the living room, so see what it’s like to make a difference now. It will also give you a chance to meet passionate people outside of the library. Plus, this is the time in your life when you’re likely to have the most energy and the most free time. So make the most of it and make a difference!
