At what age should people stop dating or should they continue to date until the final roll call?
I assume the question refers to people not involved in committed relationships (i.e. married).
I don't see that age should have any effect on dating. A mature person (not that age is a guarantee of maturity) can bring a lot of wisdom and insight into a relationship.
Do people stop loving after a certain age? Obviously not. Love is more than sex and physical arousal or performance (and now they have pills for that anyway, I get tons of e-mails about them!). Dating is about relationships, not just "getting lucky".
However, the goals of dating probably change with age. There are many reasons to date, companionship, to share an experience with someone, to have an adventure with another person (romantic or otherwise). I don't think age would curtail any of that. Circumstances and health might affect it, but considering that dating is really about relationships, I think we humans can relate to each other throughout our lives, as long as we have awareness and cognitive ability. So obviously, we can experience love, even romance, throughout our lives.
My opinion anyway.
That would be completely up to the individual. There is no age to stop dating...now if someone is in a committed relationship--that would be a good time to stop dating.
If singles desire to date until roll call, more power to them. Why stop living just because you get old? Humans need companionship at all adult ages.
I think you should date until the final curtain. There's nothing wrong with having companionship in your life. It makes living and getting through life a little easier no matter what age.
If you enjoy doing something there is no reason to stop as long as you're healthy enough to contine doing it. If I were (looking for someone special) to settle down with I wouldn't give up until I took my last breath. As George Clooney's character stated in the movie "Up In The Air" - "Life is better with company".
There shouldn't be an age that people stop dating. So long as you're interested in spending time with someone and forming a relationship you should continue to date if you feel like it
My grandma at the age of 80 met a guy in her assisted living home, the guy was 78 years old and lived a few doors down... they dated for about 3 years and just recently got married. It's never too late to date.
My grandpa passed away at the age of 54 so it's been a while for my grandma but might as well be able to spend your time with someone who really cares about you. Unfortunately my grandma is far away so we don't get to visit as much as we'd like so I think it's great she has someone.
It depends everyone peaks, and becomes ready at diffrent ages.
I'll keep on dating untill I've found my match. Even if I have to walk in to a room, holding on to a stick, wearing fake teeth and a wig. I do hope meeting that special one a little sooner though:-)
A person should keep on truckin' until they run out of gas...
Never stop dating! That is as long as you aren't married. You should keep living and dating until the very second they pull the plug.
Why stop? George Burns didn't, and it seems that he dated much, much younger women. He is reputed to have said that he would date women his age but there weren't any.
50 year-old.We need a last rest.
Our life need moving ,and need stopping.
you should date for as long as you feel the need. There is no age limit on wanting to have company and the pleasure of feeling good with someone else.
I think it depends on how you define "dating". After a certain age priorities change. People aren't looking for someone to grow old with, marry and have kids. I think it's fine to have a close relationship at any age, so long as the intention is mutual and clear.
I don't think there is an age to stop. I think this is a question for an individual each are different. I believe if you are married you should still take your spouse on a date. Why should that stop just because you are married?
I think stop before you start and life will probably be a lot more simple ! or maybe start when you are 60 when you are content with yourself and know who you are. Its a funny thing really you spend most of your early life trying to please the other one and working out what they like and what they are all about and forget about yourself in a way. Infact make that 85 : )
I heard of someone getting married again at 96 ! Good on them !
Love has no age limit.....
If one is able and loves doing it, I think there is nothing wrong with dating.
I believe that folks should date until the end call if they are among the single folks or in a open relationship........Now, if they are with a significant other exclusively then dating should have stopped as soon as the wedding was done especially if the bliss lasts for eternity...
