Don’t look for someone to grow old with, find someone to stay young with! This is such a powerful declaration. The mindset is everything and I believe this is the key to having a fruitful relationship. How do you see yourself and your partner over time?
I have seen lots of elderly couples through the years and for most their appearance as a couple is very bland and disconnected. They are not only not close to each other, but they appear to not have the adoration they may have once had. It is sad to see. Being together for decades and the only comfort they have with one another is time.
On rare occasions, I spot an elderly couple still holding hands, still looking at each other with love in their eyes and love in their heart. This makes me happy and that’s what I want for myself. I deserve love and I deserve the type of love that stands the test of time. You to deserve eternal love!
Now, I am not old yet so I don’t know how that part works, but I understand how I feel about my love and I don’t ever want that to go away. So it is my understanding that it’s up to my love and I to keep the candle lit and burning bright. That is what I am aiming at.
We have so much fun with each other, why should it ever get dull? Laughter is the key to a happy life. Ridiculously Enjoy Life!
Ways To Stay Young Together:
(No magical order).
Discover a mutual hobby together. Keep that wonder going, ask questions, learn and grow together.
Constantly show your affection for one another. Never stop touching each other. Never stop admiring each other. Always say. “I love you” and always show it through actions as well. I believe the actions are way more important for long-term happiness.
Celebrate each other in your successes. This is an easy one.
Stop acting your age. Stop thinking that we have to act like adults. Why did we ever stop our child-like spirit? Responsibilities? That’s a bunch of nonsense! Ha
Keep each other’s goals alive and continue to strive for them. We need to always evolve with each other. Be that buddy that you were always meant to be.
Never stop dreaming. There are no limits, not even the sky. There is more in the beyond.
Play and laugh together. Go to the store and smack each other with pillows, pick on each other, and continue to laugh.
Never go to bed angry. Shame on you. Things may not get fixed before bedtime, but you can console each other enough to still snuggle next to each other by then.
Stay fit and healthy together. Go for walks together. Get out and actually live life together. Don’t develop that stagnating lifestyle by staying on the porch and yelling at kids to get off your lawn.
Stay connected to your good family and friends. Keep those healthy relationships alive because it will do a lot for your spirit.

This post was inspired by the love of my life. She has a child-like spirit just like me and we will stay young together!
Find someone to stay young with! The signs are there already so make a good choice. Discover life together and thrive. Be playful, have banter with one another, and be ok to make fun of each other. Stop taking things so seriously. It’s not imperative, I promise. Stop saying you want to grow old with someone and start thinking that you can continue life with some in the happiest way possible.
How can you continue to stay young in spirit with your significant other?
