A word for singles who are getting a bit older and are dating. I’ve met many of you who are waiting for that experience of being swept off your feet to find “the one.” Stop putting that kind of emotional pressure on yourself. One of the reasons young lovers are swept off their feet is because they’re still young! They’re figuring out who they are, where they fit in the world, and what to do with their lives. They just left mom and dad a few years ago. They get easily swept off their feet…because they’re not all that stable!
As you get older and more established, you know yourself. You meet potential spouses, and love unfolds in a different sort of way. A more peaceful way. One that puts solid friendship first. And like it is with a seasoned, married couple, the fire of love isn’t always as impassioned as you grow older, but it’s deeper, and in many ways, far more beautiful.
