This likely wasn’t intended to apply to all men under the very specific age of 33. But according to Dr. Jane Greer, a New York-based relationship expert and author of “What About Me? Stop Selfishness From Ruining Your Relationship,” Lopez’s advice is actually pretty solid — especially if you’re looking specifically for commitment.
“It can take men into their early 30s to establish their professional career and feel a sense of financial stability, which helps them feel more secure in life,” Greer told INSIDER. “As a result, this can give them the maturity that comes with accomplishment, experience, and success.”
This doesn’t mean that guys in their 20s should automatically be off-limits. But it does offer an explanation as to why some men seem to make a sudden shift in commitment ability around the time they turn 30.
“Sometimes you see a guy who’s been in several relationships but then, in his early 30s, suddenly he meets a woman and is ready to marry her,” Greer told INSIDER.
So, Lopez’s exact advice might not work for everyone, but knowing your worth and having standards that match up to it never hurt anyone. In any case, next time you’re swiping around on a dating app, if you ask yourself one question, it might as well be this — what would Jennifer Lopez do?
