Could I fall in love again at 56? Do I want to?Page 1 of 8    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)
Certainly loosing a loved one hurts, but when the time is right for a new love, go for it.

Could I fall in love again at 56? Do I want to?

Good advice there Bubba............ Sometimes I am not sure what is right from wrong and I have certainly made poor choices in my lifetime when it came to love. Must say that if we were lucky enough to have been "in love" at least once in our lifetimes, then that is something to be grateful for because some people never find love. I would like to find love again but I don't know how or where so in the meantime, I like your advice about try working on becoming Miss Right and not focus on finding Mr Right. Good luck!

Can you? Sure. Should you? Who knows? What I do know is love isn’t something you “get over” but rather something who’s loss you morn, and learn to live with. I have trouble with your question also because for me Love is a state of being, not of mind, its part of our nature; we can no more stop falling in love, than we could stop eating, or breathing, or sleeping. I know the pain of love lost can make it seem a curse not a blessing, but the ability to love is a blessing and at any age can be found and made anew. Hang in there. you will love again, and with your next love will come peace and happiness. I'm no psychic, but have a good feeling about that prediction.

Oh sapph, I love that......" although my soul gets tired of the search, my heart keeps egging it on."..thats beautiful . And yes, I want to fall in love again, I want to be filled up, I don't like this emptiness inside. I know what you mean when you say your heart is open, so is mine.

Suthn-boy said it perfectly. I've had 3 great loves. My youth,23 yrs. and father of my kids. 2nd one was my heart,off/on 8yrs. Should of married him. 3rd was my passion (crime of passion is more like it) be careful what you pray for. But don't regret any of it. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have some of each in one relationship one more time? You know, that lights up your eyes kind of love. My son told me I'm lucky, some people never have a great love. Believe me I realize my blessings. Now I feel greedy.

Thankyou and yes you're right about my son. One of the best men I know. But now you've got me wondering about how he would know. And theres a very long story behind that. TN., huh? Love it!! I lived in Millington for 3 yrs. Do they call you Dorothy too? And even my crime of passion was real love, on my part anyway. On both our parts I think. Or maybe I was just a soft place for him to land. From a mans point of view, do you think it's better to love or to be loved? Sounds like a new thread, huh?

I have had 2 great loves. Number 3 must be some where.

When he left me in the morning (after we hug each other for a very long time), I can remember being in a fog like state, still able to smell him, still able to feel his touch. The rest of the day was unreal, like I wasn't really part of that day, because I was still with him, even though he wasn't there.

Just brushing against his arm sent an electric current though us both.

Yes, I want that again.

Could you fall in love again at 56, of course you could. I am your age and my mother just turned 80 this past week and she met and fell in love with a gentleman this last year. She tells me that she feels like a teenager again. She is young in mind and heart and age doesn`t diminish the feeling. I am so glad that she can find this kind of happiness and that she embraces it instead thinking she is too old for love. Don`t give up. When you are ready for love it will find you.

I was just reading the posts and thinking how long it has been since I was in like.

It is hard to be in love, if you don't see someone you can be in like with. I have a hard time liking regret, and that is what I see most of in the dates I have been on.

When we are younger, most of us don't realize what real love is. Maybe it is more of a question of it being harder as we get older to find real love, because we recognize that real love is rare.

Isn't that an old song, Mae? I can't remember who sang it though. Hmm, I'm dating myself now.

I think this is so neat, but can't remember for the life of me where I heard it. Someone asked this old couple that had been together like forever, "whats your secret, how have you stayed together for so many yrs.?" response,"we never fell out of love, at the same time." Ooooohh, makes me melt. We still have hope. Hi Suthn!! I'm caught up on sleep.

.. I think the "fallin' in love" is the easy part ......... the "stayin' in love" a little harder at times .... whether its our baggage, our tendency to hold back sensitive parts of our hearts and souls, the time constraints of living in this day and age ....it can all add up to failed relationships. I hope I'm up for the "work" involved in maintaining a great relationship after the "fallin' in love" part ..... which I also really enjoy!! .... lol ....

I don't want to "fall" in love but I DO want to love, and deeply. I am through with infatuation. I'd really like to start off with a friendship, see the caring develop. But it's never too late to love. I think that's why we're all here (not only on this site, but on planet Earth!)

I believe that so many people get set in their ways or carry around a lot of baggage as they age but there is certainly the possibility of finding someone who fits your lifestyle, if it's meant to be, and love can follow.

If a person is lonely and unfulfilled, they will seek or get into sometimes compromising relationships which may not be the best for them. If a person is self sufficient, happy, has a busy and active lifestyle and someone comes along who fits in, it would be great for them to fall in love.

I have been spending the past few years working on loving myself and being emotionally happy after a few years of allowing myself to be hurt. I got past being bitter, resentful, etc. and now that I am happy and free of a lot of baggage I would welcome a loving relationship. However, I have observed a lot of people in our age range who try to rush something for convenience and that won't work either. Love after 56 may be different than it was 20 or 30 years ago, but it can still be rewarding.

Not really...I think.
To be with somebody in relationship...but...why we have to love each other?
It has to be super match...what is impossible.

It can be chemistry...intellectual fascination...friendship...but not love....
