you can find love in your 80's or 90'sPage 1 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
good post! I'm not in my 80s ... or 90s ... YET! I can see those ages creeping up on me though!

I once met a couple in their 70s who met through SOME online singles site, I'm not sure which ... and he had to move from Canada to be with his lady love ... they had been married ( ! ) for five years and the bloom was still fresh on their relationship ...

thanks for the encouraging words ...

At that age.....I would think looking for companionship would be much more viable and realistic....but I am not the " in love" type anyway....so, what do I know....;)

An awesome way to go, enjoying sex, just as long as you take the one you are having sex with....along....lmao

Somehow, keeling over and leaving this life while enjoying sex with another, but leaving them wondering what the hell they did to make that happen, or maybe they would know and enjoy that if one has to go, might as well be with you giving them pleasure.....go figure!!

Aw.....that's so sweet OP. I love hearing things like that...means there's still hope for me yet.
I only hope it's not going to take me another 20 years or so to find love.

My dad turns 80 next year as does his girlfriend.

They don't live together but enjoy each others company and visiting rights.
They go away on short breaks.
Go to the theatre, out to dinner, to festivals, movies, shows, picnics, walks, share a bed when it suits them both and not when it doesn't.

When he stays at her house he wakes her up with a cup of Earl Grey tea in bed.

I am jealous.

Hello dear, the hope is always here and there the fear, friends and words of mouth are the problem other wise anyone can get a man or woman when focus on expecting instead, this is I see it.
I am 51, single and always looking per at my age after been hurt many time young and some mature women, I decided to look for seniors or elderly ladies instead maybe elderly age range 90 and up , don't even want to think about their sexual orientation after all we all need caring relationship or a genuine marriage no matter the age gape or the look.
ROMANCE IS THE SAME WORD AT ANY AGE.
This is my PUT.

Best

^^^
And his (?) profile says "36 year old Male, 5' 7"...

I HAD to look at this profile since I am curious and could not really understand what he was posting. Are the scammers posting in these forums?

It was a busy night last night - I had 4 new scammer emails this am. A new record for me.

If really old people get married, they're more likely to follow the "til death do us part" vow than younger people.

^^^ Imo, starting a live in relationship in your 80's or 90's is all about being unable to be alone (co-dependent).

People can call that love if they wish.

Yes, the 1980s and 1990s were good years for that.


But why would an 80 year old person get married? What other benefits are there?


$500,000 tax-free profit on sale of a house for married couple, versus $250,000 for single person.

^^^ cynics :/ I think because they are of a generation that truly valued the concept of marriage.
And they can stay together if they get placed in care
And get each others pensions

my best friend is 65, her spouse (2nd marriage for both) is 92. They married 12 years ago. He was recently widowed, she had been divorced for a long time - they did not feel they could live together for religious reasons.

When my Mom died at age 91, my 95 year old father was busy within a few months looking for a girl friend.

Now me, I personally don't want to get married again, although I would enjoy a part-time 'visitation' arrangement.

Shouldn't you be trawling the local nursing homes? Maybe you should sign on as an in-home caregiver. It should be fun, for you both, to give sponge baths. Stalk the "Ensure" and "Depend" aisle at Walmart. Hang out at the Medical Supply store near the oxygen tanks.

P.S. why is your profile age 36?

He is clearly trying to raise funds to get his caps lock button unstuck.

Maybe try a Gofundme campaign. I'll kick in a dime.

Well goodness me I read San's profile. I gotta say it is one of the more interesting ones. Perhaps he thinks the elderly cannot see well, hence the caps.
I like when I see old couples being affectionate - holding hands as they walk, etc.

Only drawback to old age is that there is less time for falling in love and less time for enjoying being in love.

Otherwise, because we men don't last as long as women, there are increasingly better chances of meeting someone, if you can last long enough.

And, of course, having a pension with survivor benefits increases your appeal!

" I'm a little concerned about some of the youth worshipping middle aged people who feel distainful toward old age. "

It is one thing if you grow old with someone. It is a whole different thing, if you end up a widow/widower and start chasing the opposite sex when you are in your 80's or 90's. I know quite a few people in their 80's and 90's. None of them are interested in "finding love" again. Most have health issues, all know at their age they aren't as physically able as they once were. They are busy trying to just survive a few more years without drama, and want to enjoy a peaceful life.

Some middle aged people, maybe afraid they when they reach 80/90 they will be alone as they are now. Mother Nature is clever. She takes away the desire for a mate for most of us.
Mind there are those men and women who use hormones so they still have the desire.
Reminds me of the old joke about how just because you can take drugs to get aroused doesn't mean you should.
I knew a women my age who uses hormones and she is constantly chasing any and all men she thinks she can bed. She is a very frustrated and sad women.
