Who says women over 50 can't have fun?

Quote:
What do other women think is the best thing about turning 50? To find out, we asked WebMD readers, as well as a doctor (Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom); a clinical psychologist (Nancy O'Reilly, PsyD); and a retirement lifestyle specialist (Cynthia Barnett, EdD). We also checked out what prominent authors Shirley W. Mitchell (Fabulous After 50 and Sensational After 60) and Jane Ganahl (Naked on the Page: The Misadventures of My Unmarried Midlife) had to say about women aging, then sprinkled in a few observations from 60 Minutes' crusty humorist Andy Rooney.

I'm going to be 50 in 3 months.

My favorite one from that site...

"A woman over 50 will not lay next to you in bed and ask "What are you thinking?" She doesn't care what you think."

well, not so much that she doesn't care, but figures if it's important enough, you should know enough to tell her. Doesn't care in that she's not waiting to hang on every word....she's heard all the words at one time or another.

I'm 53. One of the best things about the 50s is that I no longer care whether most people like me or what I choose to do. It's very "free-ing."

@Eva,
Eva's fifty-free.

I'm 51. It's pretty good.

I did a pretty big round of getting-over-myself, and cleaning-the-closet-of-useless-friends, at 40. Now there's just an occasional tidy-up required.

Gotta love the complete randomness of that list...

Women Over 50 Are Freer

5. You say "screw it" to plastic surgery. I read somewhere that more women in their 40s get plastic surgery than in their 50s. I think it's because once you hit 50, you don't care. You say, "I am who I am." -- J. Ganahl

9. Nobody's going to fault her for using Botox, dermabrasion, getting a nip and tuck. She can be who she wants to be. .. You can tell her you like or don't like it -- but that doesn't mean she's going to follow your advice. -- N. O'Reilly

The best thing about women over fifty (and they change from girlhood to womanhood about that time) is that they are not only wiser but sexier. In their sixties, and sometimes in their seventies, they become even better.

pffffffft....grateful my ass.

that's one myth I'd like to dispel, that if a younger guy plays flirty flirty with an over 50 she's gonna be so grateful that someone, anyone pays any attention to them they'll just drink it all up.

get out of my way weenie head, I don't have time for amateurs.

One more great thing about them:

- You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 50. They always know.
