Can Someone Be Too Old To Find True Love?

can i be too old to find love?
Please what makes people assume that finding true love has given us a deadline and if we miss it we are in trouble and facing the risk of lonely life. Can someone be too old to find true love? Am I too late to get someone who will still love me at this age? Have I wasted too much time for waiting till this moment? Now I have a nice education background, gotten a good job, living a well comfortable life, but it seems no love can find me again. Can I conclude that am too old to find love?

I've heard and answered some of these questions through many platforms. Is not strange to see people coming out in public on social media to express their concerns and worries towards the difficulties in finding a partner. The real thing is that, both women and men of a little old ages seem to be burdened by this questions.

The Stages Of Worries

People at their early twentieth don't really bothered about this. They only start getting worried when its already late 20th. Most especially those of them who’ve barely started dating at all are worried they’ve already missed all the real chances to find a good life partner.

The moment they are approaching thirty, they become so scared that they are missing the opportunity to settle down at the right time. It becomes unbearable when they are approaching mid-30s, so they are more concerned. They started thinking because everyone at that age is already married.

Like the common saying, a fool at forty is a fool forever. Singles at forty most especially ladies are more worried. They express fear over the uncertainty about their lives, because they are constantly getting old and their chances for a happy love life are relegating to zero. Women are really worried at this level because they perceive this as a failure and the whole society see them as such.

If people at forty are finding it so difficult, what can we think of people at fifty, sixty and on..like that? Can they even think of finding true love at those age? Yes or No? If your answer is 'No', can we now believe that finding true love has an expiry date?

Then When Is The Right Time To Get Married?

So literarily, when is the right time to get married? Looking at our society today, younger women in their 20s feel pressured by parents and friends to focus on education and career first. On the contrary, ladies of above 35years will be under tough pressure to get engaged, which could lead to making wrong choice at the end of the day because pressure may make it difficult for them to identify a fake relationship.

How I Met The Right Lover At The Wrong Time

Let me share the real story that I received from a blog reader that forced me to write this post....Enjoy reading.

"I have a story for you and would love to hear what your take on this matter affecting my mind.

 I am an older woman and look good and beautiful for my age. I met a guy who was a friend of mine on Facebook. Whenever I make a post or upload picture about my new looks, he usually be the first to comment. Those usual comments guys do make on young ladies' pictures such as are nice, hot or sexy not slutty. 

So I sent him an inbox message to stop such comments on my picture which he obeyed and we became friends. We chat once in a while and later we became very close and chat always on Facebook before we exchanged number. We started talking and became very friendly. We compared what we like and found we had a lot of things in common, like dancing, foods, entertainment, etc. 

Finally we met and he had been saying for a while that he was so very attracted to me and he was attractive to me too. We met and hit it off. He was very sexy and romantic and sweet and I found him charming and he felt the same way and could not wait to see me again. We had planned a date but then we both got the flu so we postponed it. 

I wanted to do something nice for him as he is still searching for job and not yet settled. His time is limited because he has to rally round town as a young guy to survive and he never relied on me for once. 

So I invited him to come over for a nice quiet dinner. He was so excited, he brought me lovely flowers and could barely contain his excitement at being there with me. Then the bomb. He got a call from his brother who told him his mom fell in the tub, so he had to leave, no dinner but got a lot of understanding from me and told him I understood and there would be other dinners. 

He kissed and hugged me like he wanted to consume me which was promising and he even said he was falling for me and he was so happy I wanted to be his girlfriend.  

I said goodbye with a smile and was excited at the possibility of our next date. He promised to let me know the situation at home so I wouldn’t worry but to my shock a half hour later I got a text from him that said we have to stop this before he hurt me. He wished I was young.

Please can I be too old to find true love?"

  2. You can't be too old to find true love and the right time for marriage is the time at which you are ready to marry. For the woman's story? I am sorry she had to fall for a player no longer a fool at forty everyone is involved now.


  3. Hello, Very thought provoking question and a very interesting story.

    I suppose a person can fall in love at any stage of life but not necessarily marry the loved one. I have noticed many people are in love for years but get married to someone else. It is true as we get older it is difficult to get someone to really love unless that person is interested in our money or some other thing which they consider of great value.

    When a person is young it is easy to attract the opposite sex but an older person will have insecurities to deal with such as old age, greying hair, not so perfect skin and so on.

    This does not mean that old people cannot find love. One can fall in love at any age but for an older person to fall in love requires more effort and time and money.

    Best wishes
