Why is it that young love is so different for older people?
Perhaps due to the fact our hearts were mangled by loss, grief, and crushed to dust?
Speak to a person in the beginning stages of young love, it is such a serious emotion.
Just unsure why after a person gets older (like myself) that the love emotion fades, drastically.
Speaking of love for a partner, boyfriend or husband.
Older women like myself, we seem to not carry this same need for acceptance or love from our partners in order to feel secure.
I would feel fine without the justification of my husband, at this age.
However, as a teen or during my twenties such a lack of attention from a boyfriend or spouse would have driven me nuts.
Older women we just simply are secure and seem to not need the validation from our lovers/spouse to feel good about ourselves. Unsure why this is, but it is nonetheless.
See young men and women have much grief over a break-up. I remember the horrible breakups (boyfriends) of my youth and it was terribly emotional.
Women of my age and older, we have confidence and are secure in ourselves without the need of constant reassurance that we are pretty, loved and wanted by our lovers or spouse.
Would have been nice to have the same knowledge of the strange emotion of love during my first true love, as I do now being older.
First true love of life seems to be the “one true love.” This person is typically the one who breaks our hearts in our teens or twenties.
People of a certain age tend to not allow the love goggles to blind them in regards to dating or marriage, as young men and women do in the teens and twenties.
The first love of ones life, is never forgotten, but does often time cause scarring from a broken heart.
