Love is for life, not just for youngstersPosted on: December 13, 2012 16:17:21
As many senior singles already know, finding love later on in life can throw up a number of difficulties and can often be forgotten or overlooked.
Spending time with someone you care about in a loving relationship is important whatever age; whether you are divorced, have never been married or are hoping to find a new partner after the death of a spouse.
According to a new study by Age UK, two-thirds of people aged over 65 believe it is important to have a romantic companion.
At the moment, one in eight older people are currently looking for a partner. However, wrongly, over a third believe that they are too old to join the dating game, due to concerns about what other people would think and for fear of rejection.
Donna Dawson, a relationship expert working alongside the charity in its latest campaign, said the need to love and be loved never changes as people age, but what can change is our attitude to ourselves and how we should act.
"We need to remember we are the same person we always were, with our own needs and wants, and it's important we embrace opportunities such as taking up new hobbies or meeting others, in order to keep us stimulated and healthy, and to maintain our emotional wellbeing," she said.
The biggest reason many people in later life are keen to find a partner is so they can share their life with someone special, the study found.
Others look for someone to have friendly physical contact with and to help ease the feeling of loneliness.
Friendship is also something that is highly valued among older singletons, with 80 per cent of those asked in the study claiming they increasingly treasure having a companion.
If you are looking for love over 60, then starting the search for love online can be a great way to meet like-minded people to share your life with, for friendship or more.
