Single again? Age is no excuse to shut the door on love

15 0 33

It’s never too late to find love, and getting older doesn’t mean it’s all over for a relationship.

Get out there, meet people and take some chances being single.

“Society has changed and there are lots of people who get divorced later in life and begin second relationships,” says Jacqueline Chia, co-founder of Mozaic HK Ltd, a dating agency. “There is a relatively large group of singles in the 40-plus age group who would like to start new relationships, and mature dating is only natural.”

Want love to work? Best keep your expectations in check

Older potential partners are mostly intelligent, interesting and well-groomed, according to Chia. “People maintain their health and appearances better nowadays and live longer. It is the last chapter of their life and they want to have a companion or lover at this stage too,” she says.

For those reluctant to venture out alone to meet new people, a speed-dating session could be rewarding. You don’t have to take it too seriously, just use it as an opportunity to hone your social and interactive skills. You can have a casual flirt or test-run a few chat-up lines before you advance to a more serious stage.

For a better sex life, it’s time for more talk........
