My grandmother has developed a habit of falling on her way home from Bridge Club.
Her most recent tumble took place while she was carrying a bag full of fresh berries; as her body hit the pavement her precious cargo went catapulting into the air. But as we grow seemingly weaker on the outside, my grandparents have demonstrated that, internally, we often tend to grow even stronger in our convictions.
Loveit seems, can age quite well. With that in mind, I spoke to three women over the age of 70 to hear about the first time they fell in love, the ways love transforms over time, and their thoughts about all things romance-related today. Their wisdom has both inspired and resonated with me — all three perspectives are vastly different, and yet rich with history, emotion and nostalgia. I learned that experience in the present may be transient, but some memories are more powerful from a distance.
And when revisiting the past, love is a lens that adds both color and clarity. Behjat, 89, lives on the Upper East Side with her husband of 67 years.
I grew up living in Bombay [modern-day Mumbai], India. I liked to look at boys. When I was 12, a letter came from a family in Iran with a photo of a beautiful boy inside. I saw the picture and I fell in love with him straight away. A year later, my mother passed away and my father brought us to visit Iran. We went to visit the family who had sent the photo. He was the most good looking boy!
When I returned to India, he would send me photographs of himself. Photography had just been invented so this was quite a big deal! He later told me that he would go down to a shop and pay to get his portrait taken — it was very expensive. But oh, how I looked forward to receiving those photos. He only grew more and more attractive as time went on.
I saved every photograph. We have been in love a long time. I fell in love with him when I was 12 years old and climbing trees in our Old woman ready dating wives. We quarrel, we do everything. But we make up. We had to leave Iran during the revolution. Our two eldest daughters were already in the United States getting their degrees at University. But our youngest, she was only ten years old. We went to London and started over. We had nothing and no one, really.
But eventually, we got used to it. We made a home, a life. London was our home for over a decade, until our first grandchild was born. Then we started over again, this time in New York. Our relationship has provided a foundation for change. Like George Clooney — good looking men. I like to watch their films and movies.
Aimee lives in the West Village and has many, many boyfriends. I was born in Hong Kong. I was a surprise baby — my mother was in her 40s. I was the baby of the family. I was spoiled rotten. When I was 13, there was a woman, the second wife of a news publisher. I had never seen the boy!
I was 13!
So we never married. When I was in college at the University of Michigan, I fell in love with two people at the same time.
They were both very different. Mel was an intellectual who was doing theater. He had the potential to be great. Richard was a hippie who drank tea and meditated. I had no idea why I was in love with him except I guess I just was. I had a choice to make, and I went with Mel — the intellectual.
He was a very interesting guy. He got an obituary in The Times. I was painted. I was mentioned in a book. I had a poem written about me. The gold he used was taken from one of my fillings. Today, I fall in love with people all the time. First of all, Richard [the hippie] from Michigan! He lives in India and he came to visit me last year. I had sex at 68! That was weird. I think love today is very impersonal! America has become more provincial in many ways.
Always fall in love using your brain. Falling in love with a friend and becoming lovers is so safe. Angie, 75, lives in Crown Heights and is single and loving it.
I was born in Trinidad. I was young — 17, I want him. He chose my sister! All of us remain close. My first love was way older than me. About 17 years older! He was in the army, the regiment. My brother was also in the service — when I went to visit him, I met this guy. But he was quite nice to me. Being older, he knew how to treat a woman. I was about 25 and we would go the movies and stuff like that. My grandmother, who raised me, had very old school practices. I fell in love once after that, but the guy died. He was younger than me — asthmatic.
After that, I kind of lost interest [in love]. I never really got serious with anybody. Old woman ready dating wives used to party every night because my brother was a DJ. I was single, and oh, I was loving it. And still loving it even more now! When I see couples helping each other with suitcases while traveling, I used to wish I had a partner. When my brother was alive, he would do that for me. But now when I travel, I just ride in a wheelchair and people take care of me.
I no longer need anybody. I think people today just go online and pick somebody! Now the computer does all the matchmaking for you! Life is hard, but beautiful. I get the same feeling in church. Make sure you find the one who loves you, not necessarily the one you love. True love is it. It has to be. You can often find her performing songs about those who wronged her in Middle School.
