In Praise of older women...Page 1 of 6    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
Here's one of Andy Rooney's 60 minute gems.

Andy Rooney says:

As I grow in age, I value women who are over 40 most of all. Here are just a
few reasons why:

A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night to ask, "What
are you thinking?" She doesn't care what you think.

If a woman over 40 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.

A woman over 40 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
hoot what you might think about her or what she's doing. Women over 40 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.

Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's
like to be unappreciated.

A woman over 40 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. Women over 40 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 a
woman over 40. They always know.

A woman over 40 looks good wearing bright red lipstick. This is not true of
younger women. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far
sexier than her younger counterpart.

Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if 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 women over 40 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.

For all those men who say, "Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for
free", here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage;
why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig, just to get
a little sausage.

Ouch! painfully funny!

It's a nice piece, but Andy Rooney didn't write it. It's taken from a piece written by a guy named Frank Kaiser,who wrote it for a website called "Suddenly Senior".

How refreshing that is to hear! Especially for those of us who do put EFFORT into defying the aging process! ( I don't mean being on a first name basis with the local plastic surgeon) Not going down without a fight, so to speak....I will be celebrating the big "50" in less than 2 months, and I have to say in all honesty, I wouldn't want to turn back the clock! Older women know where it's at and what side of the bread the butter is on, for sure....

Mandrake^^^Andy always had a dead-pan, tongue-in-cheek approach to his 60 Minutes segment, so I assumed the same here. Besides, he's accurate in what he says (or the other guy said, according to a prev post), he just isn't saying everything.

PS if you think young gals don't have "charm, character, wit, intelligence, beauty, and grace" Let me introduce you to my 18 yr-old niece -- or buy you a hearing aid and some new glasses, lol.

Had not herd that one before, I guess I am the only one. Young girls bight be fun to look at but that is about all there is.

Remember those days. Boy we were in love (so we thought) with a girl, but she was cheat'n on you with every one else. You were the forever guy, not pushing her to have sex, and then she is pregant by someone else. Well it was me, the good guy.

Girls and guys would get in fights about someone looking at their S.O. and all that crazy BS.
I would not want to go through all that again with some young honey.

Mature experance women are what everyone said. I hope they love it. A few laugh lines, strech marks are a sign of wisdom. Wile I don't think it only starts at 40 and over. most 30ish wome are still trying to figure it out most of the time

So here is a toast to fine women

In Praise of Older Women

Girls stand on the beach by the sea of womanhood looking out towards the horizon they can't see beyond, where awaits their destiny unknown, to bear children or not, find love or sorrow, as the cool waves of love spill across their toes.

Into the surf they dive and swim out past the swollen waves, out across the deep towards the island paradise they imagine, past sharks, struggling through storms, washing up on the shore where life bakes them dry in stark sunlight.

Then standing once again, with their backs to the sea, facing the world as it belongs to them, the woman has come of age, open to love like the sea is open to the wind, and she steps forward into the life she has made her own.

OP - I've seen this before. It's a great post. Unfortunately in America, older women are not relished, however, I think that is slowly changing. We should appreciate our older women AND men! After all, we will be there sooner than we think.

All that have been written is so true. I know, I have travelled the road and I'll be damn if I would exchange my life now for what I had twenty years ago. At this age we all know what we want and shouldn't settle for less.

Thanks for making me laugh and making my day gage. I didn't realize how popular and valuable i was until i went out to get what was missing from my marriage and discovered younger men were crazy about me. Talk about making up for lost time from the neglect of the old man!!! I felt very appreciated and valued. I am not looking for casual sex now but rather have settled down to find the real deal and that is a fun adventure tool. Even though my suiters are not young studs , most are younger. Men really do value older women a lot. If you are older ladies. dont sell yourself short, you are a treasure!
