    My daughters are 30 and a couple weeks shy of 29. 27 year old women are definitely NOT motivating to me - highly or otherwise. I'm 58 and the most attractive women I see anymore tend to be in their 40s or sometimes older. 27 year old women look like little girls to me now - sometimes HOT little girls, but still not motivating to me anymore... I think if you have daughters, your age of attraction seems to be your daughter's age plus at least 10, that is once they turn 15 or so. Before that, it never really occurs to you...

    No, religion is also against the rules, but you know various believers are always gonna shoehorn it in anyway.

    I had visions of going full time for food pantry work when I retired. Life changed that and now my priority is to create as normal a life as possible for a couple beautiful babies instead.

    I still look forward to the day I can feel I've done my part for those less fortunate...especially children who sometimes go to bed with an empty stomach.

    My love goes out to those who try to take care of eachother...and that's what I'd do with my spare time if I had some.

    I know what you're saying Ray, but sometimes the hoop-la over a comment is more disrupting than the comment. That one was pretty small...I thought.:)

    27 yr old wemen aren't paid for, or off.
    Generally anyways....older wemen have the resentment of every man that came before you, and..escaped the wrath.

    Which brings up another very important added point: one cannot understate the value of a regular workout. The physical benefits are obvious, but the emotional well-being is the deal. Even if it starts with a walk around the block. It'll change your outlook on everything.

    I retired almost 2 yrs ago. I had two goals: one, find a nice easy part-time job and two, play the guitar and get good, sceery good if possible. but within a month, I found myself way up into a bigtime writing project. I was surprised that I had the groove for it.

    Ain’t that the truth, older women carry around a lot of resentment because they’re old and single, a tough place to be for a women.

    "motivating" was a euphemism

    peak sexy is 18-34, but as we all know its nature changes because 18-34 is also peak crazy -- you know the rule

    I'm happily married and consider myself fortunate -- I still look at women and like how some of them look as they age and how some of them act

    a lot of middle age is about space and being confident in your own skin, which is attractive in anyone

    youth is great, but it has its neurotic side

    lol

    My sentiments exactly, I have a daughter who’s 37 so young girls are out, middle age women have ton’s of emotional baggage which I’m too jaded to deal with it.

    Two words, “younger women”

    I’m 47 with teenage kids from my first marriage. My wife is 31. I’ve never been happier.

    Find a woman whose spirit hasn’t been broken, and try not to break it this time!
