There is a growing army of people in their 50’s and beyond who are enjoying a new and exciting chapter of their life.
What people of this so-called older generation want and need in their life is of course completely different to individuals in their 20s and 30s. But the principle is the same: we all want to achieve happiness, security and comfort with ourselves, our lives and with the people around us.
One crucial aspect of this is in our love lives. It is well-known that people in the autumn of their life enjoy a certain freedom and wisdom, and this is reflected in their dating activities. This heightened appreciation of life results in an enhanced intimacy, which makes relationships and companionship that bit more fulfilling.
There is nothing unusual about people in their fifties and sixties being single these days. This is a phenomenon known being a ‘second age’ singleton, and this has been driven by the notion that divorce isn’t frowned upon as it would have been for generations in the past.
In fact, according to a survey by the Department of Work and Pensions based here in the UK, divorce rates among the over 50’s have risen by a staggering 19.5%. Older people these days are much healthier and socially active than their predecessors, so this really does mark the start of an exciting new chapter in the individual’s life.
If you find yourself to be single in this later time of your life, there is no need to be fearful. This is a time for exploration and new beginnings. They say that people learn from their mistakes. So take a look at your previous relationships, and use this experience to enhance your future.
Life is so much more special when you share it with that special someone, and luckily senior dating websites like Senior Match are jam-packed with single people who find themselves in a similar position to yourself.
