I see your point, but they stand out because they are better than the norm in their peer group. I always thought that an attractive mature woman was in many ways more attractive than an attractive younger woman because she was defying the norm.
I'm with you. And I agree, in the world of "attraction," that women are most affected. As a non-woman, I confess I never paid much attention to agism until I became unemployed recently, for the first time since I entered the work force 45 years ago. But now I'm discovering that not only is ageism very real, but that men are in no way exempt from it.
More than looking good, I would like to be good, especially in the soul.
LOL...I agree. I don't like the plastic surgery look. The aging looks far better than the stretched out look. I think society emphasizes youth and beauty to endorse and perpetuate consumerism and vanity, which both line pockets. But you can choose to not participate...which is what I, and apparently you, have done. Yay us! :)
Thank you for the kind words <3
it's our 'youth oriented' culture sadly - but many know and are beyond this - STILL - what's wrong with looking, dressing, (or 'being') younger than your chronological age? - long as it doesn't come across silly. (granted - it can be a fine line).
Absolutely nothing of course. I agree one may not look good in certain contemporary styles. My comment was meant to be a bit more 'general'.
shove the modesty, I am good for my age, my body is in great shape looking better than women half my age. My confidence and sexuality at its peak. bring it on! xx
I can say I look 'good for my age' but when others say that to me I find it condescending
Its a dam good thing.
Irs nice to taken for younger than you are ,to be able to do things ,by keeping yourself in shape,it happer than being REALFAT and not moving,for both genders
It does seem a bit unfair doesn't it?
If we look young, we somehow feel we are farther away from death?
