Why I Love Women Over 40 . . .
As I grow in age, I value women who are over 40 most of all. Here are
just a few reasons why:
An over 40 woman will never wake you in the middle of the night to ask,
"What are you thinking?" She doesn't care what you think.
If an over 40 woman doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit
around whining about it. She does something she wants to do. And it's
usually something more interesting.
An over 40 woman knows herself well enough to be assured in who she is,
what she is, what she wants, and from whom. Few women past the age of
40 give a darn what you might think about her or what she's doing.
An over 40 woman usually has had her fill of "meaningful relationships
and commitment." The last thing she wants in her life is another dopey,
clingy, whiny, dependent lover.
Over 40 women are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with
you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of
course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you if they
think they can get away with it.
Over 40 women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know
what it's like to be unappreciated.
An over 40 woman has the self-assurance to introduce you to her women
friends. A younger woman with a man will often ignore even her best
friend because she doesn't trust the guy with other women. An over 40
woman couldn't care less if you're attracted to her friends because she
knows her friends won't betray her.
Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to
an over 40 woman. They always know.
An over 40 woman looks good wearing bright red lipstick. This is not
true of younger women.
Over 40 women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off you
are a jerk if you are acting like one. You don't ever have to wonder
where you stand with her.
Yes, we praise over 40 women for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately,
it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed hot woman
of 40+, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of
himself with some 22-year-old waitress. Ladies, I apologize.
