There is no age for love to knock on our door. We can have white hair, what matters is the desire to fall in love and still live a beautiful love story. Loves in middle age, called twilight love, are often those that arrive when they are no longer expected. When passion reappears.
Age does not always rhyme with psychological and emotional maturity. However, at 50, 60 or more, we have the courage and wisdom of many lives. How we accept love and live it depends solely on us. However, there are times in life when it seems that love has been able to choose the perfect time to arise. This love is twilight love: this mature love that comes at the right time.

What is twilight love?
Some loves make people suffer and end in pain, it is a truth. It is a set of experiences through which we have been able to determine what we no longer want and what our hearts now covet.
But before this realization, it happens that we completely close our hearts. We tell ourselves that it is better not to start an emotional relationship again because in the past we have suffered too much and we have been disappointed.
Everything that happens in life is like learning but sometimes we don’t rain anymore and we prefer to just be quiet and not fall in love again.
But as we know, fate is sometimes capricious and puts us to the test. It then offers us one more opportunity, perhaps the last one. It invites us to fall in love again. (It is also said that, in life, we would truly fall in love three times).
Daring to take the step depends on each of us, whether we feel prepared for it. It is a personal decision, there is no doubt about it, but we must think about it with one essential aspect in mind: what we regret most are not the mistakes but the opportunities wasted.
And twilight love is this beautiful opportunity, this promise of serene love.
Indeed, twilight love translates into that quiet feeling of tenderness and understanding, which comes at the right time. When the heart is injured because of past experiences, indeed comes a time when it needs calm and rest.
It is at this time that the perfect opportunity for twilight love to present itself in your life presents itself.
Twilight love translates into a quiet and rested love, a serene union between two people. It feeds on lived experiences, so we know how to determine what we no longer want, because we have learned from the experiences we have lived, good or bad.
It is from there that arises this knowledge of ourselves and of our feelings which, when shared with the right person, translate into a form of quiet passion that defines well what twilight love is.
The loves that precede twilight love
Over the years and from adolescence, we feel emotions and feelings more or less strong. From our youth, in fact, we begin to feel what the feeling of love is. At this age, it is often unbridled passions that lead us to live intensely all emotions.
First loves are often synonymous with passion, frenzy and limitless ardor. We do not think, we do not rationalize, we give everything, right away.
Then come, with the maturity of adulthood, other relationships that bring together experience and discovery.
Some often compare their different love experiences. We do this frequently, we like to decide which was the best or the worst. Who we liked the most and who made us waste the most time, effort and energy.
In reality, beyond wanting to compare at all costs one love with another, the best is to understand that each love has had its moment, its opportunity and its determined time.
Instead of regretting certain things, the ideal is to assume them and understand that the best always happens in the present and that it is in this “here” and “now” that the best opportunity to be happy opens up.
In this context, why not give ourselves another chance? Loves in middle age, those that appear when they are no longer expected, are often a wonderful gift.
The beauty of twilight love
Finally, after a more or less long process, depending on the love journey of each one, comes the moment of twilight love. This love is that of those who have often suffered a lot, who have lived thwarted or painful loves. Who have experienced failure, rupture, emotional loneliness.
The heart has, in a way, gone through so many love stories that it needs that well-deserved warrior rest. He has accumulated experience and still wants to vibrate, but in a different way.
Twilight love is that twilight passion of two people who discover that they still have a beating heart in their chest and that they can love more serenely, without suffering.
When twilight love arrives, you cease to be a slave to your passions. At that point, everything seems much simpler. All the experiences you have had allow you to learn to appreciate this new person who is at your side. Your past serves you to recognize this twilight love and to welcome it.
Loves in middle age enrich us as individuals.
The best way to build a stable and happy couple relationship is to promote, in the first place, their personal growth. Building one’s psychological well-being is indeed an essential prerequisite to ensure one’s future development within the couple.
We are all constantly evolving and age does not matter in the relationship to love, the right to love.
Loves in middle age are characterized by special beauty.
However, they are not always appreciated as it should be and that is a pity. Indeed, our society values the passion of young people. An emotional intensity that should be the exclusive prerogative of the under-40s.
While on the contrary, a beautiful love can also rhyme with white locks. The most intense passions sometimes arise when the skin is no longer so firm and wrinkles appear. It does not matter, because emotions have no age.
If the one that we believe to be the most beautiful, spontaneous, pure, total love often arises the first time during adolescence, it is often reaffirmed one or two other times during our life. But it continues to be associated with youth, because passion is as if only reserved for young people.
And yet, passion can arise once again in our lives in a more tranquil, soothed, serene way, through twilight love. This “last love” that is worth living with this “quiet passion” and all the richness of our experience and wisdom acquired over the years.
