I think we can find a loving relationship at any age. I don’t think you ever give up. Life’s deepest meaning is found in relationships. Let’s face it, we know that not everybody will get married, but most people will. Even if you don’t get married, deep friendships can be extremely valuable.
If you’d like to be married, I don’t think you give up. I think you continue to invest your time and energy in doing something with your life that you believe is important. Particularly in helping other people – it’s typically in the context of helping other people that you discover someone else who has that same mindset. That’s what really makes a good marriage, if both of you want to invest your lives in helping people. When a husband and wife share that attitude – that I’m here to enrich your life and to help you – you both reach your potential. Don’t sit around waiting for something to happen, expend your energy in something you believe is worthwhile. It’s typically in that context that you discover someone who has the same heartbeat."
