Ageless Love

Love Has No Link Or Correlation With Aging Or Oldness

Romantic love has often been described as universal love that is free from all barriers and norms. In fact, there are no fixed rules or regulations in love. Love can be felt at any age. Love is felt from our hearts and our hearts can forever be young despite our biological aging. There is a saying that we are as young as we feel. When we keep our hearts young, age become just a mere number.

Falling in love at any age is easier but sustaining that love over a very long period is often difficult. Romantic love relationships has its own lifecycle. When we consider love or romance in long-term relationships, it is at the highest level during the first few initial years. This is the time when love is fresh and exciting and everything seems hunky-dory. Then comes the middle part of love’s lifecycle, when love usually takes a backseat and other more important things such as career, kids, etc., take precedence. It is especially difficult to keep love alive during this phase. Most couples breakup their relationships during this time. If you are strong and persistent enough to overcome the challenges of mid-life love, you will enter the last phase of your love in your old age. This is the time when both partners have grown old. They have been there, done that. They have probably retired by now and the kids have moved out. This is when the same care and affection comes back.

So the entire lifecycle is like an upward opening parabola. It starts with a high, goes down to a low or flats out, then it again goes up. Of course, nothing remains the same forever. Change is inevitable, especially in romantic love. It is more important to enjoy the journey with your partner than to worry about the destination. Enjoy every phase of your relationship with its ups and downs. Just don’t forget to sit back, relax, and enjoy all the turbulences.

As we age, the priorities in our romantic love changes as well. When we are young, we give more importance to attraction, passion, sex, and intimacy. We also seek trust, respect, compatibility, chemistry, communication, companionship. When we are older, attraction, passion, sex, and intimacy sizes to hold a lot of significance. Trust and respect has probably already been established by now, so that also becomes insignificant. Even compatibility and chemistry is also already established, or else we wouldn’t have come this far. What’s left is communication and companionship. So it would be fair to say that those are the most important things in a romantic relationship, regardless of which phase of relationship we are in.

Our priorities and our preferences in our romantic relationships change with age. The fundamental love, however, does not change. It’s shape and size may change, but the core remains the same. If we can keep that alive, it is not impossible to make our love last until death do us apart.

All we need is unparalleled affection and support for one another. We can’t stop our biological aging, but we can definitely stop our love from aging. The bad thing is that most of us are not even aware of what love is and what it takes to make it last throughout our life. If you read this essay, perhaps you can make your love last as you age and make it an ageless love.
