Part of this is probably the wisdom that comes with age, but even more significant is an essential truth about how age works.
And always being the lone single person when your married friends want to catch up for dinner starts to become a little tiresome.
Many older adults have multiple needs for companionship. And that sums up the generation gap in a nutshell …
Sure, some are focused only on finding that single life partner who will give them a loving relationship for the next few decades. recent studies show that young adults are three times as likely to prefer to text than talk via the phone, the complete opposite of their older counterparts.
Maybe this is because older adults are wise enough to know that looks have very little to do with whether someone is going to be a kind, loving and caring companion.
Maybe it’s because the physical nature of attractiveness changes when you get older, or maybe they know that being “hot and sexy” is more a function of your personality than how you look.
This means that there are more seniors and baby boomers than ever before looking for some companionship to fill the void of their prior partner.
