5 reasons to remain optimistic about love later in life


“Take spring when it comes and rejoice. Take happiness when it comes and rejoice. Take love when it comes and rejoice.” – Carl Ewald

Do you ever feel like the opportunity for love or romance has passed you by?

You may be looking for love for the first, second, third or umpteenth time. You may just want some fun or steady companionship, or even a delicious kiss to make your toes curl.

Whatever you want from a relationship, as an older single woman, it can often seem elusive.

Sometimes it seems like you will never meet or attract the right kind of person for you. It can be frustrating, discouraging and disheartening, to say the least.

From the point of view of a woman who really found love and got married for the first time at age 43, I get it!

I often wondered:

If there were so many wonderful singles in the world who said they wanted to be together, why did we never seemed to be able to get it together?

Once you get a little older, there’s a bit of baggage.

Yes, expect to avoid additional baggage fees, but it can be hard not to become a little jaded and a little cynical.

This is particularly true after being hurt or disappointed one too many times. And really, at this point in life, who hasn’t?

It can be a challenge to have an open heart and mind about the possibilities for joy and romance that are still available.

Then there is all the talk about “all the good guys are being taken away” or about the shortage of good men.

You may still be frightened by the false idea that a woman is more likely to be attacked by terrorists than to get married after the age of 40. However, you are supposed to remain full of hope and optimism. Right

It has been said that perception is reality. So my question is if we want to change our reality, can we change our perception? mmm.

Let’s turn this around and look at some reasons to be optimistic about love later in life:

1. New potential partners are available all the time.

This may be the result of divorce, death of a spouse, relocation, or a shrinking world due to the Internet.

The possibilities for possible love interests are perhaps greater and more accessible than ever before.

Many women now also feel comfortable with men who are younger than they are, and this opens up even more partnership possibilities.

“You have been given wisdom that can

only come through real life experiences”.

2. 40 is the new 30, 50 is the new 40, 60 is the new 50, etc.

Many people now live longer, healthier and more active lives than ever before.

Many women look fantastic in old age, and the added longevity can give you more time and opportunities for love and romance.

3. Clarity about what you want in a relationship.

Because you have had more life on this planet, you probably have the ability to make better decisions about relationships than when you were younger.

It is the age-old advantage of learning from your experience.

4. You can claim your own power.

In this context, I am referring to the power of managing your own life and being responsible for your own happiness.

It is easy to forget the choices available in life and get stuck in a rut or routine.

However, by making love, romance and socializing a priority, you’re likely to find exactly what you’re looking for.

5. You deserve a little joy.

Let’s face it, ladies, if you’ve made it this far in life, you’ve been through some ups and downs.

You have been given wisdom that can only be gained through real life experiences and maybe even some mistakes.

But these things have given you character, strength and authenticity.

By deeply believing that you are worthy of being loved and appreciated, you are sending a message to the universe to send a little joy your way!

How do you stay positive about love later in life?
