late bloomer too, Darlene, and it's great to have the feeling that anything is possible!!!

Moreansless is right. Looks fade, in both sexes, and if you don't have a great person inside it doesn't even matter if you're good looking. Having just turned 41 myself, I feel like my life is just begining. I was a bit of a late bloomer due to some unfortunate cicumstances but now I am ready to live MY life.

the appearances count for little. It's not what women are looking for in the first plase...

back at you! thanks for the encouragement.

Don't know what to say....But I don't think that your best years are over..<br />
<br />
So much more to experience...So many things left to enjoy...<br />
<br />
There's someone out there for you...Just have fun and don't look too hard...<br />
<br />
I have found that love finds you when you least expect it....<br />
<br />
You're not invisible..I see you just fine and you're quite handsome grey hair or not..I know I don't know you well but still *hugs*
