“It is never too late for love.”
Sure this line is cheesy and we hear it all the time but it definitely hits home, right? We may deny love sometimes, saying we don’t need it or we don’t have time for it but in reality, it’s something we all need and yearn for. But it is exactly because we tend to shake this bubbly feeling off that we lose it without ever realizing why. And then days pass, months pass, and even years pass. We constantly feel a void in our core and we don’t know how it can ever be filled. Because when we had that chance to fill it, we chose to look away.
But don’t worry. For love, no time is too late. It will always be there for you when you’re ready to accept it. No matter how badly you’re refusing or how much you’re against falling in-love, it untiringly waits for you. And the best part is that it welcomes you with open arms the moment you’re ready.

We all have different circumstances and “traumas” when it comes to matters of the heart. This is why instead of judging people who’ve turned rock-hard when it comes to showing affection, I try to understand them. We should all understand them. Why? Well, it’s because we don’t what happened to make them lose that loving smile on their face. It could be that they lost someone dear to them way too early. It could be that they were left hanging for nothing. You see, people don’t lose love or become afraid to love for no reason. It’s the most amazing feeling and most people won’t trade it for the world. So instead of making them feel worse for being the way they are, let’s try to live in their shoes. And if possible, look for ways to bring back their shine.
Now, I’m calling out all the people who’ve been hurt once, twice, or too many times to count. I call out those who have loved and who have failed at it. I’m calling out those whose significant others have went on early in life and left them breaking (read more). Lastly, I’m calling out those who missed out on their chance to love and have had to face life alone.
This is not the end of the road for you. Love gives a chance to all people – no matter who, where, or how old they are. If you think it's too late, think again. You are filled with love that overflows. That kind of affection deserves to be shared. Many people thirst for it; they yearn the feeling of having someone care. If you have that, then the only right thing to do is to reach out. Bring yourself to fall in-love again, it is not too late.
Today, I’m specifically going to address the latter part of this article to our senior lovebirds. You may be gaining years but you’re not losing heart. Trust me; you have so much more to give. So if you’re ready to get back on the dating scene but don’t know where to start, maybe this will help you.
Let’s all celebrate love, you guys.
Social Media, Anyone?
If you’re ready to search for love, then what better place to start than somewhere people are already gathering. If it isn’t obvious enough, I’m talking about social media websites. That’s right. There are all sorts of people to meet online and you can know more about their daily lives when you actively engage with their social media accounts. Since most profiles are public, you won’t have a hard time connecting with someone your age as well (if you prefer it). Anyway, social media is a great way to be fully immersed in today’s generation. So, date or no date, I think it’s worth a shot!
Dating Websites For Seniors Exist You Know!
That’s right. If you haven’t heard about them already, dating websites for seniors do exist. They are specifically made for older individuals with big hearts. In these dating websites, seniors are allowed to meet new people who share their interests and values in life. You can meet all sorts of people, even finding other senior black people. If lucky, you might even find someone to spend the rest of your life with!
Again, it’s never too late for you to fall in-love again. Love knows no age and no boundaries. If you feel like you still have so much love to share to the world, then why not? A lot of people crave affection and maybe the person they’re waiting for all this time is you.
