    Dating Over Forty

    I'm finding it more and more difficult to date in my forties.  It seems like there's not enough time in the day and people appear to be distracted at social events through using their cell phones or BlackBerry.  I went to this singles and entrepreneurs meetup thinking it would...

    ...And I Could Care Less

    My mother used to get extremely mad when I turned twenty-nine and started giving my age as thirty. When she corrected me, I would tell her, "I know too many people who lie about being twenty-nine. I want no part of it." Mom died that year in May. She was fifty-five-going-on-six...

    Never Thought I'd Make It

    It was my 40th birthday 2 months ago. If you'd asked me at the age of 21 I'd have said I would never live this long.

    Do you remember your parents turning 40?

    I can, and I remember thinking... They are so old! Now, I'm 45 and the years just seem to go by more and more quickly. Fortunately, mum's still living to show me what REALLY old looks like! :)

    Forty Is Not So Bad

    I don't really mind aging so much- I just wish I had more to show for the time I have squandered. I guess just about everyone would prefer not to get wrinkles or grey hair or have their bodies head south. But in a way it is freeing as well. I have no problem with people who try...

    No Big Deal

    For me being over forty is no big thing. I still feel 25, only a little wiser - if I had known then what I know now! Strippers seem to be getting younger.

    I Guess I Always Will

    New To This Group

    Hi. I am a woman who is over forty and I am a little bummed. A lot of women tell me that when they turned forty, they felt stronger and surer of themselves, but I am just feeling bad. I think it has more to do with marriage issues than with age. I will check back with this group...
