In Praise of Older Women

I'm sure everyone who has an email account, has recieved this piece on older women that was supposedly written by Andy Rooney. It starts like this:

As I grow in age, I value women who are over 30/40 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why:
A woman over 30/40 will never wake you in the middle of the night to ask, "What are you thinking?" She doesn't care what you think...

This piece was actually written by Frank Kaiser and not Andy Rooney. The whole story can be found on under urban legends.

Below is the original piece written by Frank Kaiser:

One of the perks of dufferdom is an increased capacity to appreciate people. Friends. Spouses. And, for me, women. All women.

When I was 20, I had eyes only for girls my age. Any woman over 30 was ancient, over 40 invisible.

Today, at 71, I still appreciate the 20-year-old for her youthful looks, vigor, and (occasional) sweet innocence.

But I equally enjoy women of my own age and beyond, and every age in between. I've learned that each has its own special wonders, attractions, magic and beauty.

As I grow in age, I value mature ladies most of all. Here are just a few of the reasons senior men sing the praises of older women:

# An older woman knows how to smile with such brightness and truth, old men stagger.

# An older woman will never ask out of the blue, "What are you thinking?" An older woman doesn't care what you think.

# An older woman's been around long enough to know who she is, what she wants, and from whom. By the age of 50, few women are wishy-washy. About anything. Thank God!

# And yes, once you get past a wrinkle or two, an older woman is far sexier than her younger counterpart!

- Her libido's stronger.

- Her fear of pregnancy's gone.

- Her appreciation of experienced lovemaking is honed and reciprocal.

- And she's lived long enough to know how to please a man in ways her daughter could never dream of. (Young men, you have something to look forward to!)

# Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off that you are a jerk if you're acting like one. A young woman will say nothing, fearing that you might think worse of her. An older woman doesn't give a damn.

# An older, single woman usually has had her fill of "meaningful relationships" and "long-term commitments." Can't relate? Can't commit? She could care less. The last thing she needs in her life is another whiny, dependent lover!

# Older women are sublime. They seldom contemplate having a shouting match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive dinner. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away with it.

# Most older women cook well. They care about cleanliness. They're generous with praise, often undeserved.

# An older woman has the self-assurance to introduce you to her women friends. A young woman often snarls with distrust when "her guy" is with other women. Older women couldn't care less.

# Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to an older woman. Like your mother, they always know.

Yes, we geezers praise older women for a multitude of reasons. These are but a few.

Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal.

For every stunning, smart, well-coifed babe of 75 there's a bald, paunchy relic with his yellow pants belted at his armpits making a fool of himself with some 22-year-old waitress.

Ladies, I apologize for my fellow geezers. That men are genetically inferior is no secret. Count your blessings that we die off at a far younger age, leaving you the best part of your lives to enjoy and appreciate the exquisite woman you've become. Without the distraction of some demanding old fart clinging and whining his way into your serenity.

Austin Pinoy maybe the woman you went out with has some hang ups or insecurities. Or maybe she was not comfy going out with you baka naintimidate mo. Hehehe.
As for pleasing a man, let's just say that at my age I know what works and what doesn't. The men I've been with lately, I have them wrapped around my finger. *wink*
