Devika enjoys sharing her work with a friendly community. Writing is a big part of her life. Online work has improved her lifestyle.


Dating and Marriage


At the age of twenty five she feels like her life is in a dilemma.

There were many jobs and most of these jobs were not her best of choices.

The independent young woman did not think much of a relationship.

The young woman did not think of a relationship as a priority. Her parents were in an unhappy marriage and these issues put a relationship out of her mind.

She feels her life is empty and like the boat has passed by to find that someone.

Do you think Internet dating will make a difference to this woman's life?

Her dream job finally landed on her lap but her dream guy has not shown up as yet.

When a child sees how unhappy their parents are in their marriage they tend to feel insecure in having a relationship or to even think of marriage.

Going to the extent of having own families becomes a problem.

Have you questioned your life about such issues?

Did your parents' unhappy marriage allow you to see a different side of relationships or a marriage in your life?

It is not easy to find a partner when in such situations.

What do you think?

Trust is a problem when it comes to relationships and in this way it does not get any simpler.

Is it important for the woman to meet someone?

Do you think a relationship is something she really needs?

Sometimes people make mistakes when in late relationships. It is not often a priority and when they finally do meet someone they realize it has been a mistake and it should have never happened.

Do you think the too much time spent alone allows for these problems?

Certain decisions made can make your life better or ruin your life.

When you jump into relationship thinking you ought to the pressure can escalate.

Looking at your age and to make a hurried decision can doom your life.

You tend to be most unhappy when you rush into a relationship thinking your friends are married so why shouldn't you?

Forceful decisions can make you feel pressured into relationships.

At a certain age others are bound to pressure you into marriage.

It is never too late to have a partner in your life.

A barrier can be easily put up to avoid meeting people. If you put careful thought to what you want from life you can make it happen for you.

Life is not always how you make it out to be.

Happiness shows you truly to others and other things fall into place.

You would need confidence to feel that way.

She is independent and did not make relationships a priority in her life.

Having a successful career is important.

Relationships don't come first for many individuals.

Enjoying life somehow becomes the priority.

Commitment is another obstacle and does not apply to everyone.

Finding a sense of belonging can be a path for the woman to follow.

However, no relationship can solve the problem of loneliness and isolation.

Whether, you are single, married, or in a relationship communication can be problematic.

You would be affected with loneliness and isolation at some point in your life.

Escaping the obvious is not going to happen.

You got have your heart in what you want to be satisfied with in life.

Searching for a relationship is an ideal way to go on living that is if you want that for yourself.

You can't think of having a relationship when you are not ready for that challenge.

At only twenty five the woman should not make a hasty decision.

An intelligent and attractive person but has not paid attention to meeting a partner in her life.

She has been preoccupied.

Rushing into relationship can be shallow and insincere.

To be with someone special you got to feel that spark and not get tired of each other.

What you read in magazines is not always so helpful.

Relationships can become bitter if one makes a hasty decision.

Misery, regret and unhappiness can kick in faster.

True love can make a relationship unbeaten.

A woman over thirty looking for a partner is huge. It is just the way it is for relationships.

In search of a partner and finding a partner is not always easy.

People who are in search of relationships in their thirties, often lack confidence, and are insecure.

The bad childhood memories are just some of what held them back from going forward.

Most people do prefer living alone and don't want to get into any serious relationships.

The time has come to live life and enjoy life.

To be genuinely happy and focus on what is most important in having a social life the individual has to look at their life deeply.

Is age a problem when trying to start a new relationship?

Is twenty five too late to find a partner?

Some people are not compatible.

Be honest with yourself to know if that is what you truly want.

Marriage is not for everyone.

Be true to yourself.

To love someone and share your life with a specific person can be difficult if you don't know how to go about it.

You are never too late or too old to live life freely.

Life is what you make of it.

Don't allow age to come between you and your freedom.

There are some bad relationships and some good relationships.

You need to understand what you getting yourself into before you dive in.

Be willing and accept relationships for the way it is not for the way you want to change the other person.

You can have many relationships but the moment you choose to change the other person to make that individual as you would like them to be all can fall apart very easily.

To find the one be positive and love yourself first before loving someone else.

Sometimes loneliness can send the wrong message to your mind.

You can mix up loneliness with the need to have a relationship.

Rethink what you want to do.

Increase your daily activities and see the difference it can make to your life.

New ideas and activities help out when you feel lonely.

Some self awareness could have gone a miss to make you feel insecure about relationships.

Having a dream job can feel like you have it all. It all depends on where you were raised and how different it all seems to your eyes.

Going out and meeting new people can be a bit tricky if you don't know where to go.

Relationships can be complicated if you make it that way.

Enjoy the stages of your life. The relationship you want can change you forever.

For example:

The once had social life can drift away and you would wonder why?

Living alone can give you some perspective from life itself.

The simple approaches to life can be the happiest moments you have ever had.

Everything in life is worth having if you put your mind to making compromises, love, happiness, and if you capable of trusting a partner.

Communication is another huge part of every relationship.

Getting older does put lots of ideas in your head and can make feel all clouded up.

Anything is possible at any age.

Improve your lifestyle with good beginnings.

Love is not for everyone, judging others are not the most ideal approach to life.

You can be however you want to be in life.

If everything in life is meant to be you will certainly get what you deserve.

      I don't think 25 is too late at all I was nearly 29 when I met my now hubby. Internet dating can be successful but I agree if there are issues such as perhaps parents in unhappy marriage maybe counselling could help sort through that before embarking on a relationship !

      It is never too late to date. An elderly relative once said that, you must set an example before the child and practice what you want him to emulate. He did that and became proud father.

      The woman who within less than a year would marry me was 40 and I was 52 when we met twenty years ago, so no, 25 is not a late age to find a spouse.

      When I met my second husband he was 37 years old and never been married. Time answers all. I do not see why the push in dating or marriage that there is out here in this world now. I don't think it is that big of a deal.

      I found I could not date people half my age. Not because they refused to date but rather because they seemed empty headed and deeply concerned with trivia to me.

      If I were dating now (in my 30's), it would be MUCH different than my 20's. I am more true to myself now and understand my wants and needs more. You shared interesting information!

      Dating is always welcome at any age. My 74 year old Mother is still dating, and I say good for her if it makes her happy. Unfortunately, in the case of the 25 year old female you speak about, going into a relationship with bad expectations can be a self fulfilling prophecy. Great hub!

      Good hub Devika. These days it's never too late to date. Many people are marrying later now or not marrying at all, so that effects dating with more older people doing it. The Internet also makes it easier for many.

      It's never too late to date. People are not getting married in their teens and twenties like they used to. ' Different strokes for different folks. ' Interesting topic....

      I'm not sure where in the world age (25) is considered old but that is definitely not in the U.S.!

      Most people aren't even considering marriage until they're in their late 20s or early 30s. No 25 year old woman should feel desperate to get married. My advice would be to focus on establishing her career and be open to online dating as well as meeting people offline at social events in and around her area. Take vacations or weekend getaways with other single girlfriends. She may even look into joining one of the hobby groups on which is an international site. They have every kind of hobby/interest one can imagine; yoga, meditation, wine tasting, theater goers, dancing, writing, book clubs, singles network mixers...etc The key is to relax and enjoy life!

      Being happy with oneself regardless of one's marital status is attractive in the eyes of others! It's difficult for "unhappy people" to make new friends or attract love.
