Finding Your Former Sweetheart This Valentine's Day

By Ruby Cemental

According to research, seniors have a very high success rate when it comes to reconnecting with an old fame and finding love. The relationships tend to work the second time around because you've had the time to mature and reflect on what you want in life and in a partner. Work, children, and other factors aren't as relevant to the relationship now as they were years ago. Communication skills and happiness levels also improve with age, which could contribute to the success.

You may have heard the saying "true love has a habit of coming back." A long-lost love is never truly gone, at least that's not the case today. Thanks to the Internet, reuniting with a long-lost love is a breeze. There is no better time to find your former sweetheart than the most romantic time of the year. Here are some tips for finding your true valentine:

Finding Long-Lost Friends

  • Try a Google search. If you aren't sure where to begin searching for someone, type their full name in quotation marks, such as "John Doe". Include any relevant words, including their profession or last known city. you'll likely receive many results, but your lost love is probably included among them. 

  • Search on Facebook. The most popular social media network for adults is Facebook. Search the name of your sweetheart. If you cannot track down the person by name, look for potential family members with the same last name in the area or siblings you may remember. You can also reach out to former classmates or friends that knew her and ask if they have any contact information. If you aren't having any luck, search for groups that may be of interest to this former flame, such as the former high school or college pages. 

  • Utilize a people search database. Some websites are dedicated solely to helping people track down others. While some may be gimmicky and require a payment for the information you can easily obtain on your own, others are legitimately free and useful. For example, ZabaSearch is a comprehensive search engine loaded with published and unlisted phone numbers.
