Jennifer Lopez knows a thing or two about men. Her dating roster is like a Hollywood who's who list. During the mid-2000s, she was definitely a tabloid queen, and we can thank her for the birth of celeb nicknames like "Bennifer."
Now, J-Lo is showing us that she's learned a thing or two from these dating and marriage escapades. Mainly, that men are essentially "useless" before they turn 33. At least this is what she said in a recent interview.
This likely wasn't intended to apply to all men under the very specific age of 33. But according to a few relationship experts, Jennifer Lopez's advice is actually pretty solid — especially if you're looking specifically for commitment.
It can take men into their early 30's to establish their professional career and feel a sense of financial stability, which helps them feel more secure in life. As a result, this can give them the maturity that comes with accomplishment, experience, and success.
This doesn't mean that guys in their 20's 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.
So in a nutshell J-Lo'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?
