Dating For The Young At Heart


It’s funny the way your outlook changes through the years when it comes to love and relationships. For teenagers, they all think they have invented love and lust and that nobody over the age of twenty five understands how this truly feels. The majority of the relationships that begin at this age are hormone fuelled infatuations. Granted, there are some that stand the test of time but most of them will be experimental, powerful and short lived.

One thing is true, teenagers think that the idea of a relationship for people over the age of forty is gross and shouldn’t be allowed. They believe that the forty-something’s are beyond all that, that they no longer need it and that, in fact, it shouldn’t be allowed. Oh how naive they are!

Mature dating is something that is just as nerve racking as teenage dating. There will still be the same self doubts and insecurities, there will still be the same need or desire to be liked and for all you teenagers out there, yes, I’m afraid the hormones will still be present and if the relationship flourishes it may well lead to the fulfilling physical aspect that you find so gross!

Young people do not hold the monopoly on love or desire. It is something we all need, whatever age we may be. There are aspects to maturity that mean a whole new dimension is brought to relationships in later years. People are often much more comfortable with themselves or their lives and much more sure of what they are looking for in the other party and what they are willing to accept and not accept.

When you think about it, we spend our youth and sometimes longer searching for a partner that we can spend our lives with. The relationship often works but unfortunately, in a sign of the times we live in, many of them end in divorce or when one partner or the other dies. So what makes a teenager think that what you looked for and enjoyed for the majority of your life is no longer needed once you have passed a certain milestone age? Whatever their thinking they would be wrong. Older people need as much companionship as any age group, if not more as once families have grown and flown the nest you are likely to have much more time on your hands.

The only difficulty is how to go about finding that special partner. Young people have their pubs and clubs, middle aged people will have colleagues and friends willing to set them up or have established hobbies where they are likely to meet others with similar interests. They are also still at an age where meeting partners in pubs is still considered viable.

However, for those looking for mature dating opportunities, it’s not so easy. Many are now turning to internet dating and this is losing the stigma it once had. Popular newsreader Jam Leeming has recently opened up in an interview about her favourable experiences with internet dating. Her mature dating possibilities have been increased with the facility that means she can pick and chose by photo, interests, age group, income, or in fact pretty much anything that people choose to include in their profile.

Internet dating for the mature person opens up possibilities that would once have been mainly the domain of the younger generation. But, as I say, older people with more time on their hands will still be in need of companionship and love and fun. So, teenagers, do not write off the older generation. You will be there yourself one day.
