As I have grown in age (maybe that should be “groan” as I hate getting old), I value older women most of all.
It’s amazing how your perception of people changes with age and how when you are younger, older people seem to know everything, but as you, yourself get older, you realise that everything is relative and with age comes wisdom. Well sometimes.
Anyhow, here are just a few reasons why I value older women more than younger women.
An older woman will never wake you in the middle of the night to ask, “What are you thinking?” She doesn’t care what you think. She is also more than likely permanently tired and just interested in getting as many hours of sleep as she can.
An older 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 50 gives a damn what you might think about her.
Older women are more 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. They also save the screaming match for when you get home and think that you might have got off lightly, but soon let you know that isn’t the case.
Most older women cook well. They care about cleanliness and are generous with praise, often undeserved.
An older 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 that she is with, with other women. Older women couldn’t care less.
Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to an older woman. They always know. And isn’t that just the truth as well!
An older woman looks good wearing bright red lipstick. This is not true of younger women or drag queens.
Once you get past a wrinkle or two, an older woman is far sexier than her younger counterpart. Her libido is stronger, her fear of pregnancy gone. Her experience of lovemaking is honed and reciprocal and she’s lived long enough to know how to please a man in ways her daughter could never dream of. (Young men, you have something to look forward to).
Older women are forthright and honest. They will tell you right off that you are a jerk if you are acting like one.
Yes, we praise older women for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it’s not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coifed babe of 50, there is a bald, paunchy relic in plaid pants making a fool of himself with some 22 year old waitress.
It’s all part of the experiences that life seeks to throw at us and if, like me, you are getting on in years, you will definitely know what I mean.
If you have any good stories about older women that you would like to share, our readers would love to hear about them I am sure. Please leave a comment, there is a form at the bottom of the page.
