Never.

From our teens to our golden years, it’s never too late to give up on love.

There is one thing everyone would not wish to endure: Having to be alone for the rest of your life. Of course, there are retirement communities available for the elderly, but that isn’t what we mean. We are talking about someone who knows you at your core and is willing to walk with you during your final years.

Finding that special someone is important. This is the person who may not know all of your secrets but is the next best person to share about your deepest joys and anxieties. She’ll be there when you’re in pain or enjoying another birthday. If you want to take a walk, you’ll have a warm hand to hold as you stroll along.

If you’re looking for the kind of woman you can travel through your final years with, consider traditional-minded women. Here’s why:

1. They’re like the women you grew up with.

During the 50s to the late 70s, most families were traditional-minded. They were Christian nuclear families that, for the most part, believed in conservative values. They believed that the strengths and weaknesses of each gender were complimented by their coming together and not competing for equality in fields nature had not intended.

That means, men were men and strived to be strong. Women were seen to be the best at full-time household management and the rearing of children. For men to do women’s work would diminish a man’s economic potential. For a woman to do men’s work would risk the welfare of the organization she worked in.

Though in individual and specific cases the reverse would be valid or even needed. However, confusion and conflict arise from forcing public policy toward permanent liberalization of these traditional roles. Men with the potential to do combat service shouldn’t be spending time raising children. Women who cannot pull wounded squadmates shouldn’t be there, to begin with. This could only be considered a last resort.

With the 21st century prioritizing gender and race over intellectual, physical, and psychological competence, it is no wonder you want an old-fashioned-minded lady these days.

2. It won’t be just you and her, but your children and grandchildren.

You’ll be occupied with your grandchildren. It’s most likely that your children will be hard-pressed for some time in our 21st-century work environment. This means that the next best person to watch over your grandchildren would be of course you.

One of the best things the elderly get to see is the family line continuing onwards. You and your wife have the chance to play with your grandchildren, take them on walks around town, or play at the beach. The possibilities are endless.

3. You’ll have someone to be with within your darkest hours.

Nothing feels worse than being alone with your thoughts. When you are afraid of the inevitable coming closer or wondering if your life was worthwhile, you’ll have someone that will look you straight in the eye and say with complete honesty that: “Yes, you were worth everything.”

Nothing beats finding yourself growing older with each passing day while remaining whole inside as you continue in your old age.

Your life is more important than your age.

Age is just a number. It sounds cliche to read it, but whoever your significant other is has to fulfill one important role in your life: that she completes you.

She must have the same values that you grew up with to ensure your compatibility with her. Apart from finding a person who shares your values, you will be able to experience your entire family in the process which might also include closeness to your extended family. Lastly, she’ll be there when you need someone to talk to about your deepest concerns as you grow older.

If you are still single and don’t want to walk through life without a significant other, then you need to seize your life with your own two hands. Man up, and don’t delay. Look for your significant other today until you find her!
