Is Age Only a Number?

Posted on: June 28th, 2013 by Executive Matchmaker Romella Battle
Do you believe that love grows better with age or is it a mythical sense of thought?
Along with the list of standards, preferences are usually next in line to be evaluated when looking for a mate.  A common preference when dating is age, which has been one of the main inclinations when it comes to finding that special someone. At times the differences in age can be frowned upon when it is evident, on the display and breaking the social norm of what the majority are use to. Truth be told, the factors based on age are forever changing and exalt to different perspectives when it comes to dating outside or within specific age groups.
Younger women are dating older men and older women are looking at younger men, times are forever changing. Many may not realize it but some of the time people go outside of there age group not only to try something new but to go against the grain and step outside the comfort zone is a risk a person is willing to take to find exactly what they are looking for in a person.  Overall it is the individual preference in what a person likes or may even grow to love and at times it can be a result from a difference in age, style of dating and what you will do to go after what you want.
Some people believe in dating those who are more mature because they may have more to offer than someone who is young; such as experience, maturity and wisdom. When a person is on the younger side and fresh to the dating market and still experiencing the realm of dating, they are not use to or aware of a lot of things that a older person with more experience with dating is use to.
 Love is an emotion that is supposed to be expressive with a positive notion to share one’s feelings not discrimination in how one may feel or who or what they prefer.


Cat and Mouse Chase, Which One Are You?

Have you ever felt as if dating was a big game?

Are you a part of the game?

Are you a part of the game?


Am I cute enough, do I look the part, who will call first, am I too clingy, how long should I wait to make the first move.


These are just a portion of what this cat and mouse game of dating presents on an everyday basis. Dating can be very difficult, especially when certain standards are put in place to please the personal preference or taste in a potential mate. When that niche or personal level of standards become hard to find, it makes the process of dating tough and even annoying. This is why some people believe being single seems to be an “OK” thing.


People tend to feel more comfortable, at ease and less pressured when they are the only person they have to worry about. Some may think that being single is a scapegoat or a safety zone to keep themselves from being hurt and not venture out into the dating world but have you ever thought maybe the individual was just tired of this crazy and dysfunctional game called dating? Everyone has their own personal opinion or preference but honestly speaking, the majority of people who say they are single by choice may be borderline delusional.


On the chance that you are single for the moment, you may happen to fall into one these categories: single and dedicated to my education at the moment, single and dedicated to my career, single parent and dedicated to my kids, single and grieving for a lost spouse or single because I’m too young or old to date. Taken any one of those reasons into consideration, ask yourself, how many people truly want to be alone, on purpose?  It is part of human nature to want to love someone and share your successes & disappointments as you continue to grow. However, it is more than likely that as a single person at some point and time, you have been hurt, jaded or frustrated with this game many of us play, including myself….. Though being single can appear to be easy and carefree, we clearly know, that at times it can be lonely and flat out suck!


So where does that lead us, eventually we are sucked into this game of dating. If you ask yourself what the true meaning of dating is, there will not be a clear definition and that is because everyone interprets things differently. When it comes to dating the obstacles and ways of the game constantly change from day to day, leaving it to be an on-going challenge. A challenge within itself that has it perks as well as downfalls, which alters different mindsets, thoughts and motives.
