Amanda Stanton Shares Solid Advice for People Who Are Scared of Being Single in Their 30s
Good to know, girl! Amanda Stanton took to Instagram on Tuesday to let single members of Bachelor Nation know that they have nothing to worry about — even if they are approaching a certain age.
She offered some solid wisdom during a Story Q&A in response to the following fan query: “Best advice to someone who is creeping up on 30 and still single?”
“Being 30 and single used to sound so scary to me when I was younger but I’m actually so glad I was single when I hit 30!” wrote Amanda, who turned 30 in April 2020. “I feel like a lot of people (me being one of them) had to learn through life experiences with a lot of things in my early 20s. Once you hit 30 you’re wiser, more financially stable, don’t have time for games and pretty much know exactly what you want (which could be a lot different than the things you wanted in your 20s)!”
She continued, “So even if you’re single now, I think you’re more likely to find a more sustainable relationship in your 30s when you have that experience from your 20s & know yourself better!”
Before Amanda competed for Ben Higgins’ heart on Season 20 of “The Bachelor” in 2016, the stunning California native was married to Nick Buonfiglio from 2012 until 2015. The former spouses share daughters Kinsley, 8, and Charlie, 7.
Though she didn’t win Ben’s final rose on “The Bachelor,” Amanda appeared on Seasons 3 and 4 of “Bachelor in Paradise” and entered into relationships with other franchise stars. Following an engagement to Josh Murray and a short-lived romance with Robby Hayes, the mom of two promised herself she would stop dating within Bachelor Nation.

Amanda’s romance with Michael — who was previously linked to “Bachelor” and “Bachelor in Paradise” alum Corinne Olympios in 2017 — comes after her relationship with Bobby Jacobs, which ended in 2019, and her brief romance with attorney Oren Agman.
