Relationships Later in Life

At The County Register we believe it is inevitable, for one reason or another, that sometimes we find ourselves alone and looking for a relationship later in life. It could be due to a divorce or sadly becoming widowed, but whatever the reason, we may find ourselves seeking companionship, and finding that the way people date has changed dramatically over the years that we have been away. It could also be the case that your career has always been the forefront of your priorities but now you have established a successful and lucrative business, you find yourself wishing for someone to enjoy your free time or perhaps even retirement with. That is where The County Register can help you create the right relationship but also a sustainable one too.

Standing the test of time

When we begin a new relationship, it is akin to venturing out on a journey, full of twists and turns and ups and downs. As we learn more about our new partner, the process of getting to know each other is a gradual and multi-layered experience. Initially, we accentuate the good and downplay the less than perfect aspects of our lives and personalities. But at some point, as our connection grows, our significant other discovers those little things that make us tick, what pushes our buttons and the intricate aspects that make us who we are. If our relationship is initially based on physical attraction, there comes a point where we discover whether we are in fact emotionally compatible with this partner we have begun to make a life with.

Compromise and Understanding

As our relationship matures, our priorities may evolve as well. We put more value to things like comfortable conversation, and relaxing breaks together. But as well as being part of a couple, we are also our own person, and it is important to retain our own friendships and hobbies that we can participate in both with and without out significant other. It is always important to consider each other’s feelings and preferences, for example booking a spa resort with a golf course, so both parties may have an enjoyable time. Considering our partners emotions and preferences always goes a long way into maintaining a successful relationship past that initial attraction.


In a successful long-lasting relationship, it is so important to make your significant other feel like a valued and appreciated equal. The key to maintaining and strengthening your bond is to always take the time to speak respectfully to each other, to show consideration for each other’s likes and dislikes, and to speak how you would like to be spoken to. Such a simple concept really does go such a long way into retaining that closeness and emotional intimacy. If and when a conflict of opinion arises, a healthier approach is to debate rather than to argue, and if you have differing opinions, to simply agree to disagree.

Starting Over

It can be really daunting to put yourself out there later in life. But unfortunately, sometimes it is unavoidable and that is why seeking expert advice is so important – and at The County Register that is what we do everyday.. It might be second time around for one or even both of you, and that comes with its own trials and tribulations. As people mature, we become more accustomed to our own way of life, and that is why things like compromise, understanding and respect can go such a long way. Fortunately help is on hand at The County Register, we are a bespoke personal introduction agency that specialises in bringing together people in the same stage of life. Having that support and guidance from our experienced love specialists goes a long way to maximising your chance of finding a compatible partner to develop a meaningful long-term relationship with.
