Then they are fools.

Most middle aged women I come across are still in good physical shape and have been dealing with men (and life) long enough to become confident in their own abilities and have a better and stronger personality. Whilst many have lost the 'girly' beauty of their 20s many have developed a more mature beauty that is truly appealing because their confidence and self-assurance shows through.

I'll take a woman in her 40s over a flighty, 20-year hottie every time. Lucky for me, Mrs Minty fits the bill.

I'm being a bit picky here but...maybe by the time humans have been on the planet 4.5 billion years things will have improved. But so far we've been here a fair bit less than that - only (!) 200,000 years. Even our remotest ancestor made a first appearance just 2 million years back. It's planet earth itself that is said to be 4.5 billion years old.

Maybe she was but Minty's still on the money. Why bother with a flighty filly when what you really need is a good mare who knows her way around the course.

Ahaa yes, I see your point and there are advantages .... but sometimes, sometimes you don't want someone to show you around the same old course. Unless of course, you need that kind of direction.

Apparently there is evidence of inter-breeding with Neanderthals.

Which just goes to show what we already knew - that the male of our species is not always that fussy

She wasn't. She was too busy trying to squeeze in to her Pamela Anderson plastic bikini now that she has had her FFF cup boob job.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to help her with her botox injections before we start on the all-over fake tan.

Cheers!

Because the old gray mare ain't what she used to be?

While we, to the last old forum fart, have kept our high school physiques.

However, in the interests of full disclosure, about the only left of my high school days is my mindset. And therein lies the answer.

And lets be honest ladies... if you had a choice between a 'middleaged old fart' in failing health and a 'Bronzed Adonis' flashing a 'Colgate Smile'....
Talk about Glass House's...
