When you fall in love when you’re in your forties

Be honest about your past will help you maintain a healthy relationship

Be honest about your past will help you maintain a healthy relationship

The past sometimes creeps in unwantingly when you’re falling in love after you have been in a significant serious relationship. Sometimes your children bring up memories, or conversations might steer towards your past and bring up feelings you’ve shared with your previous partner. It doesn’t need to be uncomfortable, as long as you are clear of your motives regarding these.

My partner and I matched and met when he was 49 and me being 43. We both have lived vibrant lives prior to our relationship and we’d tell each other stories that would bring up tears, bouts of laughter and feelings of resentment or joy – all awhile sharing our past. In order for us to share, we agreed to revisit our past, to show each other what makes us who we are now.

It all has to do with circumstance. Since we have mutual friends that overlap on any given occasion, weird situations might pop up out of the blue. To be comfortable towards each other, and our desire to be clear and not be embarrassed in certain situations, we decided to just share our thoughts together by being honest.

Honesty as a priority value
Sharing a love for life at a later stage also means that you engage with someone whom is in the know of what life has to offer. Your partner has lived a life prior to your past relationship and they have adapted to values that you now share together. By sharing your most inner thoughts and past memories, you also clear issues that might arise as in being second best. Clarity is what got you together in the first place, so never be afraid to revisit past events that you share with others from a previous life, it really matters to be open and clear about everything.

Now that we are married, we sometimes endulge in thoughts of what it would have been like if we would have met earlier in life. Since we both have children from previous relationships we reminisce on what our children would look like, if we’d had them together. Then I’m reminded to be be thankful for the matching and dating agency that brought us together in the first place. Would it not have been for them, I’d still be lost online and would still be waiting to find a date to meet in real life.

Just like the most of us, you prefer not to be alone for the rest of your life

Just like the most of us, you prefer not to be alone for the rest of your life

Let’s say that, for whatever reason, you become a bachelor at a later stage in life. Looking to solve your problem of loneliness, it can be quite ‘scary’ to start dating again. Love For Life Matchmaking and Dating agency advises to overcome your fears and take a leap into the unknown. Here’s some tips that might help you get back on track.

Make sure you know what you want.
Dating when you’re in your fifties will be very different from dating when you’re in your twenties. Times have changed, as have you. Maybe your ideal match has evolved over the years too. Before you’re getting on the dating path, make sure that you have all your ducks in a row. Ask yourself why you want to start dating again. Are you really ready and set for a new relationship, or would you just like to try and test the waters by having no strings attached contacts? What are you looking for when you start matchmaking and dating again? When you have a clear answer for this, you might be ready for the next step.

Start an account with a dating website for senior matches.
Off course there’s always the chance to meet and match while you’re walking in your local shopping mall to find a suitable 50+ match and start dating right off the bat. But, you will have to admit that the chance of that happening will be very small. Especially when later in life you’re looking for a match to fit your expectations. Nowadays, people looking for a suitable match have a wide range of choices to meet and match simply by going online and list their preferences. When on a dating website, these preferences will be met accordingly, there will be an abundance of suitable partners to match to and you will try to make it work by getting together after you pay your dating website dues.

What is a Soulmate?

Frank B., February 27 - 2020

It’s a simple question to ask and find an answer to a life long search. Matching a person to your hearts desire, becoming partners for life. Would that be a right definition for a Soulmate? We at Love For Life Matchmaking and Dating agency find the answer to this question multi faceted and we’d like to look at this individually, on a person to person base – for no answer will satisfy 100%. As we’re inclined to say: we can only try and do our very best to come as close to a match as we can. The individuals themselves only then can revisit and contemplate in finding that most precious of answers.

How do you recognize your Soulmate?
Usually a partner goes through the woes of evolving awhile on the dating path, until the right one apprears – right in front of your doorstep. The right one will have answers to all questions, will provide love and will give sustenance where needed. Besides being a friend they usually are someone you can trust with your whole heart.

Let’s be clear and loosen our grip on ‘love at first sight’ for the only thing that counts. There are deeper mechanisms at work here, and they’re as obvious as the sun rising every day. Trust, attraction, openness and love are all at the base of this, to come more close to heart matters. You might find yourself in a place where the overall feeling is alright, without it being an infatuation or just for the sake of love wanting to happen. By following their hearts desire, each and everyone knows what is good and at what point you might have questions. If there is any doubt, try to clear things up just by asking the right qestions. That will lead to a more whole, satisfying journey to come closer to your potential soulmate. Only when reminiscing on the past you can actually say that your ‘love at first sight’ is indeed true, because it feels overwhelmingly good for you. All the boxes are ticked. Remember, for meeting your match – only you know the best.

Where does Love For Life Matchmaking and Dating Agency fit into all of this?
For starters, we cut away the clutter and guide registered members by asking them simple but clear questions. We ask all our members the same set of questions. Then we compare and when they match up, there’s a good chance of taking the first steps to come closer to a potential soulmate. Once we have established mutual interest and there is a favourable answer from both members, it’s time to set up a meet for a first date. Love For Life will then initiate, arrange and take care of all, such as language support for travel, finding a suitable meeting spot, how to get there and back – all done for you, so you can concentrate on the experience of meeting your date the best way possible. How’s that for service?

Knowing when to meet your match later in life

Set out with questions answered before you start dating again.

Frank B., February 27 - 2020

Set out with questions answered before you start dating again.

The differences between people and how they act when a relationship ends. Some start a new relationship after a few weeks of being single, Others don’t even dare to think about starting something new and wait for a couple of years to engage. Time doesn’t say anything, but how do you know when you’re ready for a new get together?

Maybe you’ve been subject to this, your relationship was over and people around you start to ask the obvious – isn’t it about time to start something new? – and you might think, why not? You meet a few people on casual dates and it’s all good. Then reality kicks in, you recognize you’re not ready to engage in something meaningful. You’re still engrossed in memories of the past.

You’re not looking to find someone to fill the gap
It’s only natural that you want to share your life with someone, and that you’d like to have a special person around to just be there and any given moment. But as there are many close friends around that will tell you that filling a gap isn’t a long tern solution, it might just be an answer for you to to get your head around your situation in order to get some clarity.

No matter how beautiful love can be – it’s good to understand that a relationship as a purpose never can be your only pursuit in life. For what it is worth, it can be a very valuable addition to eventually become more closer to you, and start growing to become the person you’re meant to be.

Know what you want
Before you start your quest for the right one, and to get back on the dating path – it’s wise to consider a few things that can be of help awhile setting off.
You might be looking for someone quiet – or the opposite, someone vibrant and exciting. You could have a dream of eventually live together, or it might be that you’d like to live your lives together, apart. Answer yourself if you’d like to embrace children in a relationship. Whatever elements from your past realtionship did you enjoy and would you like to pursue in a new realtionship?

Deal with your past
To remain friends with your ex partner is certainly admirable, especially when you share children between you. But consider this – is it really the friendship you want or is it the longing for your shared past, and at a deeper level even wanting to get back together? You really have to be clear on this before starting to want to find someone new. Only then your path is bright and clear and you’ll enter a new relationship with a clear mind.

You’re ready to share your life again
It all sounds easy, dealing with your past and move on with someone new. Then reality kicks in and can hit you like a door on the way out. Imagine not finding a connection, or – the way you’re trying to find a date is dissapointing. Nowadays there are so many ways other then meeting a real person in life at the local grocery store. Online dating often remains online, the process usually being meaningful, but in so many instances without actual results.

Your love for life can acutally help you
As a Matchmaking and Dating service, Love For Life goes the extra mile and will look for you beyond the obvious quick fix. We focus on getting you together with all of the above questions checked, before you start. Then we match you to that special someone that equals you on paper and actually get you on a date to meet, person to person.

What is it like to have friendship in a relationship?

Is it possible to both experience friendship and love together equally?

Frank B., December 24 - 2019 Chiang Mai

'He's my best buddy' I hear people often say, or 'She's my best friend'.

Is it possible to both experience friendship and love together equally?

Friendship in a relationship is a sacred thing. From the start, it’s foundations are slowly build as an exchange between two people who are a perfect match, they can talk about anything together. What they both continuously share is the wonderful harmony of give and take. Sometimes ‘friends’ are looking to slowly change their friendship to love and commitment. Sometimes the direction for both is pointing the other way, looking for some sexual benefits too. Others desire togetherness, conversation and mutual support.

All of these are good foundations for satisfying man to woman, or woman to man friendships. Most of the time these friendships will happen when both individuals have the same desire for love with a friend. While with other friendships, desire may not match up so well.

In this busy world of digital social interaction, it’s not always easy to find a match for life, especially when it comes down to reacting to a small screen, and waiting for a reaction feelings are often misinterpreted or misread. To find your match in love and friendship is often said to be a wish coming true. To both have friendship and experience deep feelings of love, all based on harmony, trust and shared equality. To experience these, we need to get out more to meet new people, to feel, read and learn someone by actually talking and interact with them. That way we’re sure that our feelings are not misread or wrongly understood, but that they are real and someone is aware because it happens in the moment – right here, right now.

Isn’t it true that when you remember a meeting or a date, you immediately afterwards know how you feel about it – good, happy or even sparkling because you have found something new and exciting?

Finding Love Later in Life

What's it like to find love when you're older?

Frank B., December 24 - 2019 Val-d'Isère.

Second chances at finding true love.

What's it like to find love when you're older?

I was married for over 17 years, and during the last year of marriage I was trying to fix what was broken, in an effort to repair and heal all the scars. It didn’t work out as planned, so in the end we divorced. That was seven years ago. It took me a while to get over it, and what they say is true – that time heals wounds.

My wish for later in life was to find love, settle down and be happy in retirement. It took me a while, and as I wasn’t getting any younger, I found the courage to start dating again, being all alone was too hard to bear. I met Jerôme while partnering up for our slow dance class. We clicked immediately, him being a good dancer and a real gentleman. I realised that when older I was looking for other things to love than when I was young. I wasn’t attracted to Jerôme at first, but over time I found him to be most honest and a gentleman true to his word. He has a flair about him I never searched for before and I enjoy being pampered when he takes me out for an evening on the town for a nice dinner and later to go watch a movie – or when the occasion rises, to slow dance at the dance hall.

To be honest, I never thought this would happen again, and I know that there are many people out there that have the same wish to connect to a loved one again, but can’t find the courage to do so, or they simply don’t know how to get in touch with people. I would like to tell them not to give up on love. If it can happen to me, it can happen to them, maybe by chance or luck, maybe with some help, who knows.
