Recently, I received a call from a woman and her belief is that she is too old. She is turning 70 this year, and has been advised to lie on her online profiles. She does not feel right doing this and asked me for my advice.

My response was that I could easily hear in her own voice how uncomfortable she was in doing this, so don’t. If it does not feel right to you do not do it. You will be doing something from the energy of untruth and will block you from getting the results that you want.

It is more important that you reach a place of acceptance and grace with your age. Once you are alignment with you age and your valuable, unique personality, your vibration will raise and you WILL begin to attract more people who accept you and find you just as attractive as you feel!

Also, do not rely only on online dating sites to meet potential partners. Be open to meeting someone in all your everyday activities, as well as doing the things that you enjoy. This woman dances 4 nights a week. It makes her feel alive and vibrant, is social and is nurturing her soul. Absolutely perfect!

I know that men (and women) are limiting their searches to age and that is unfortunate. Age does not define who you are. I know more people in their 80’s who are more vital than people in their 50’s. Stop searching for statistics, and start searching for qualities, values, and a match that is real.

Here’s the thing, if you lie about your age on a site, when you meet someone, etc do you really want to contemplate dating someone who is not willing to accept your age or disqualifies you because of your age. The perfect person for you sees YOU, the person, not the number of years.

My advice is always be authentically you – and if you are not sure who that is, go on the discovery journey and find out.

By the way, my mother-in-law married a wonderful man when they were both in their 80′s. He is now 91. They are still thriving, traveling all over the world and its wonderful to see them enjoying life together!

So no matter your age, get out there and love!

To your love and success,
Cheri Valentine
