Learn why your 50s will be the best time to experience love.

4. Your passion hasn't petered out. Quite the opposite. An AARP study of men and women over 50 found that 70 percent of 50-64 year-olds and 63 percent of people 65 and over report being currently in love. And for those over 65, 46 percent reported being passionately in love. Your body may not be 25 any longer, but your capacity for romantic love is intact and better than ever.

5. You don't sweat the small stuff anymore. Your parents are aging or have passed on. You've experienced your own or our peers' illnesses and debilities. You are up close and personal with the fragility of life, forever reminding you that you don't have forever to get it right. That perspective, which can be non-existent in earlier years, allows you to let go of the little stuff. to focus on what counts and how to be happy. Those are the keys ingredients of making good choices and creating a loving, long-lasting relationship.

If you are not already, there is no better time than now to focus on this part of your life. We may be in our 50s, 60s, 70s or beyond, but we've still got it going on in the love and romance department. Coupled with our smarts and life experience, this is most definitely the time to take advantage of this beautiful oh-so sweet spot of love.
