  • Dating still priority for older people, says author

    We may think that love, dating and marriage are goals that only young people dream about, but these ideals are still held dear by older singles, according to a leading author.

    Alison Leslie Gold, writer of Love in the Second Act: True Stories of Romance, Midlife and Beyond, says that an increasing number of singles are entering deep and meaningful relationships later on in life.

    Gold says that she interviewed a number of singles aged between 43 and 97 and found that their love-lives are often coloured by past experiences.

    However Gold says that it is possible to move on from a past relationship and find love again, especially as she says that people tend to approach relationships with more maturity as they get older.

    "A new beginning doesn't mean that it wipes out the past," says Gold.

    "I have a couple of cases of widows and widowers who will never replace the great love that died, but found another experience in a love that didn't duplicate or challenge the original one."
