I'm at my best

when I'm in love. I just feel like a different person. Now in my 70' s and divorced, I haven't felt it for a long time. Sometimes it wasn't reciprocated thru my life but there's nothing quite like it. I wonder if it will come along one more time.

I haven't fallen in love since I was in my mid-30s

All My Relations: I'd been through a series of relationships that didn't hold and generated a lot of painful dysfunction. I decided I better take a break from the dating game and figure out a better life plan. I became very lonely. I had been saying to myself "Creator will send the right woman when I'm ready" but years went by and I was starting to feel so lonely I got angry at Creator and found myself saying: "how long must this loneliness go on?" and I heard a very quiet voice say: "have you really been praying deeply enough for what you need?" And that quiet voice was so profound I realized I had been superficial about my inner-dimensional life. I experienced an existential grief so deeply I fell to the floor and sobbed in a depth of prayer I'd never experienced, and that night I had a dream about a woman. A few days later she walked into my place of employment and now its been 30 years we've together without any serious argument. I'm not trying to evangelize any religion, because there are many roads to the mountains top, but I hope sharing the above with y'all may be of help <><><><> OCM Sto'lo Coast Salish salutations.

30 years with no serious arguments? Ok…
Sounds like the relationship me and my imaginary friend had when I was 7. Oh wait, we did have a few arguments about meeting real people. I had to say goodbye to that boring unhealthy relationship. It was too self-serving. Congratulations, though.

There are quite a few elderly people who find love a last time after becoming widowed; usually in seniors homes or activity groups.

I wouldn't call 71 elderly or ready for a nursing home. Sheesh! I'm still fit and employed in a vibrant field.

Did I say that YOU are elderly? No! I just wrote that elderly (or let's just say "old") people DO find love, often after becoming widowed, etc.

You assumed.
