And they love you even though you’re yourself (sorry…there’s laughing in my head right now). Why would I want to find the exact same man, who was perfect for who I was, but may not fit the person I’ve become?So…what makes you think it would be different in a new romantic relationship? And couldn’t that person just be floating out there…waiting for a hook?
Who’s to say that the new you might find something even more meaningful and even deeper than what you had before? And if you hook something you don’t want…throw it back and cast again. I hear so many people say that what they had was perfect. That they lost their soulmates and that they will never find that again. With the obsession that today’s media has with youth and appearance, you could be forgiven for thinking that it’s only the young who are looking for companionship, that dating is a young person’s game. Which of the following images do you think the media is more likely to use to accompany an article on online dating? At the same time, more older adults over 55 find themselves single and looking, either through divorce or the tragic loss of a husband or wife they loved for many years.Well, given the number of people in the world…what are the chances of you dating that one person who has led a perfect life? We’ve all been through transitions with relationships in our lives.
Our friendships have changed…how we interact with our families has changed.
Because no matter how old you get, one thing about human nature never changes: nobody likes feeling lonely.
Older adults, however, look for companionship in a way that’s very different from their younger counterparts.
You can let your “freak flag fly” as they say in (I love that movie).
And because of that, even if your friendships are fewer, they’re more meaningful. Those friends who have weathered the storm with you will always be there. And my sense of humor has taken a downward turn into the land of Sick and Wrong.
Young people are incredibly age-prejudiced, to such an extent that age is one of the most important filter criteria used to find a match on online dating sites. Age is the second-most important attribute used to help users determine if they’re interested in a potential match (after the photo).
