(Guardian)   "As one who has been ageing happily since the day I was born, ageing is not a bad thing. In fact, every single woman I know looks better in her 30s and 40s than she did in her 20s and is a lot happier than she was in her 20s"   (theguardian.com) divider line 269

The women in their 40's who look better than they did in their 20's are the ones who stopped tanning.

Keyword: Single

If she's still single a 40, she probably didn't care what she looked like at 20 either.

There's some smokin' hot 40 year old women out there

This.

Get out of the sun (and/or tanning booth).

Quit smoking while you're at it.

I will file this under 'lies women tell themselves'.
 
2014-02-17 10:29:56 AM
A farking commercial for facial cream??

Anyway, certainly not all women look better in their 30s or 40s, but a lot of women look great and even better at those ages, and self-confidence and knowing oneself is part of it.

Aging.
It's spelled AGING.

/Not AGEING.

And fat is as fat does.

I make a hell of a lot more money at 40 than I did in my 20s, so there's that.

Dear Submittard;

Unless you're going to go out and walk in front of traffic later today, you too will one day join the ranks of the "Hey. Look. They're old".

Get used to it, you moron.

Yes - subby will age.  That doesn't mean subby will go around claiming all people of a certain age are more attractive than they were 20 years earlier.

I was thinking that looking at the headline that Fark was a different place now. No country for old luddites. Fellows that pointed out they were smarter faster and stronger at 18 at every turn
 
2014-02-17 10:40:18 AM
As I get older I find I don't really give a shiat what I look like.  People are so much more concerned with how THEY look to really care about your appearance, and all that vanity seems so exhausting and high-schooly.

People are often COMPLETELY deluded as to what they actually look like.  The "wtf is he/she thinking wearing that" crowd.  Fat people wearing bright and tight clothes for instance.

Or wearing pants so loose that they ride below your ass, making you waddle like a penguin....

I hope she got paid by the word or column inch, because if that's how she responds anytime someone asks her a relatively simple question, she must be a blast at parties.

It would be great to see evidence of a single case of this ever happening---a woman looking better in her 30s than in her 20s. Of 25 billion women who have ever lived, it has probably never happened.

I think many people are happier in their thirties and forties than in their twenties.  In your twenties you tend to focus on all that social climbing bullshiat.  Accumulation of stuff.  Never going to make you happy - someone is always going to have more money, more facebook friends, be in better shape, have a hotter partner, have a plate of food that looks better on instagram, etc...

The people who never outgrow that stuff, the people who keep running the race, I imagine they don't get much happier as they age.  Just more frustrated.

This is true... as i approach 40, i have several old highschool people on my fb, and there's a couple of females that seem to be exactly like this...

While I've never boffed a 40 year old and don't look at elbows, I'd have to say that looks like it would fall into the category of "things you can't unsee."

I admit on average, twenty year old women are hotter than thirty year old women.  However, many women finally start to clean up in their thirties - lose weight, stop binge drinking, smoking etc.   An evolutionary psychologist would probably argue that some of this coincides with the usual significant income increase that comes for most men/husbands in their thirties and forties.  The competitive pressure increases.
 
2014-02-17 10:49:09 AM
Certainly hornier.

And it's nice to have a conversation with a woman that doesn't feel like I'm losing brain cells while doing so.
 
2014-02-17 10:49:23 AM
I know i'm not as attractive now at 46 as I was at 26 or even 36. As someone who constantly got male attention when I was younger (meaning "being checked out"), it's safe to say I barely get "checked out" anymore. It really is depressing as fark. But hey, I'm so much wiser now, right?

/ Just whining a little
 
2014-02-17 10:51:57 AM
Look better?  In some ways, considering I was very overweight when I was younger.  Other ways?  I'm sure I appeal to a different demographic than I did in my 20's (ahem).

Happier?  God yes.

The exact topic under consideration by the article, their skin, pretty much makes the difference though. A slightly chubby 22 year old will generally be more attractive than a svelte 38 year old. Maybe in a photograph you'd take the second one, but if you really want to lick every portion of someone's body, it's probably preferable that they be soft and young.
 
2014-02-17 10:52:43 AM
These are the same people who say things like "40 is the new 20".

I wonder if this is why marriage makes, on average, men happier than women. Men's prime purpose for social climbing is usually to find the ideal partner.  When they get it, they tend to stop climbing so hard.  The wife's reason for climbing is not so directly tied to her mate though, hence the continued pressure.

Of course this is all in general, very stereotypical neanderthal thinking, the y chromosome is a social construct, etc....

I dated a 26-year-old when I was 40. That was my all-time dating age differential and I must say it was like dating the air. She was fun in the shower, though.

a disclaimer:

I didn't used to think of the elbows like that... I have a cousin though that is approaching 50 and chases after girls in their 20's. a few years ago i asked him why he doesn't go after chicks closer to his own age, and this was his explanation. It is one of those "once someone points something out you never forget it" moments.

I'm not really an elbow "freak" (as i don't like to call people freaks unless they fall into circus sideshow level of attention whoring, then i get all judgmental) but you can't unsee what has been pointed out.
