Oldies meet on line and marry within 10 months: "At our age... you don’t have much time to waste."
And, let's face it, the downside risk is lower: There's less time to live with whatever mistake you may make.
So act, live, make up your mind, seize the day. As Steve Jobs once said:
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.
