9. Don’t Meet Families Too Early

Don’t jump into meeting each others families, that will come with time, and is actually a huge step. If you feel comfortable with talking to your families, be sure that you partner doesn’t feel pressured. Remember, you have a whole family with you now, it isn’t the same as dating when you were a teenager.

8. Talk About Your Values

Make sure you are with someone who actually has a similar system of values. While it may seem like this doesn’t matter as much, do you really want to spend your golden years arguing with someone? Take the time to learn about each other early on, and you will prevent heartbreak.

6. Be Your Own Person

5. Get Aways

Plan get away that no-one else knows about. Even if you are just driving to a fair, take the time to get away from it all. Years of responsibility can feel heavy, but you are more than able to get away from it and enjoy yourself.

4. Spend Less Money

Try and do things that don’t require you to spend money. Both of you know what it means to date, so don’t bother trying to impress each other when you really just want to be together. Plan things together that money can’t buy, making memories that time won’t be able to touch.

3. Take Classes Together

You are never too old to learn a new skill. Take classes together and learn more about yourself and your partner. Your local university may have a number of classes that meet once a week, giving you time to be around others and your new friend as well.

2. Give Useful Gifts

Give gifts that are actually useful and avoid giving away clutter. By this point in time, you likely have a whole house full of times, you don’t need to give or get little tokens that just take up space. Pick out items that really mean something and try to be sparing with your gifts.

1. Enjoy Child-Like Pursuits

Allow yourself to be young again. Instead of trying to always push yourself towards more adult-life behavior, take the time to enjoy being young and free. Color, have a picnic, go to the beach, stay up late. Remember, you are only as old as you feel!
