There's always a first time! Maybe your "First Time" was when you were a kid. But, what if your "First Time" happened after turning 50? Did you fall in love for the first time later in life? Did you find "The One" in your sixth, seventh, eighth or ninth decade? If so, we would love to hear about it!
And that's why we're seeking stories of people who have found love -- for the very first time -- after 50. You don't need to be married. You just need to have found "The One." For some, this happens in high school or college. But for many, many others, it happens much later in life.
If you'd like your story to be considered, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us your tale (anywhere from 400 to 800 words would be great). Don't forget to include your names and ages and please put "love after 50" in the subject line. If you can also send a photo and/or video, even better. The deadline for submissions is Friday, January 22 at 5 p.m. eastern.
Our goal is to publish your stories of finding love after 50 the week before Valentine's Day. Help us celebrate the many beautiful love stories that happen later in life.
