Women Over 40 Rock!

Whilst I have many annoying memories of Mr. Rooney, I have to say, a lot of Andy’s reasons why he values women over 40 ring true:

A woman over forty will never wake you in the middle of the night to ask, “What are you thinking?” She doesn’t care what you think.

If a woman over forty doesn’t want to watch the game, she doesn’t sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do. And, it’s usually something more interesting.lucy_liu_glasses_gala7_lg

A woman over forty knows herself well enough to be assured in who she is, what she is, what she wants and from whom. Few women past the age of forty give a hoot what you might think about her or what she’s doing.

Women over forty are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won’t hesitate to shoot you, if they think they can get away with it.

Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it’s like to be unappreciated.

A woman over forty has the self-assurance to introduce you to her women friends. A younger woman with a man will often ignore even her best friend because she doesn’t trust the guy with other women. Women over forty couldn’t care less if you’re attracted to her friends because she knows her friends won’t betray her.

Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over forty. They always know.

A woman over forty looks good wearing bright red lipstick. This is not true of younger women. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over forty is far sexier than her younger counterpart.

Older women are forthright and honest. They’ll tell you right off if you are a jerk, if you are acting like one! You don’t ever have to wonder where you stand with her.

Yes, we praise women over forty for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it’s not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed hot woman of forty-plus, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some twenty-two-year-old waitress. (Ladies, I apologize.)

  • I have to agree with the headline to this blog post. Women over forty rock. I know from personal experience that women over forty in most cases stop playing games. They know what they want and are willing to tell you. The key to that for the men is…listen to what she is telling you. Then execute flawlessly. LOL

  • I surely know Andy Rooney 😉 and I love this article it is all so true. I am blessed to have a husband who thinks it’s okay to be natural and age gracefully!

  • Love this site. Recently, I read that a female comic corrected a guy who said something she did took balls that “It takes ovaries.” I looked for that again but didn’t find who said it. A book came up though, titled “That Takes Ovaries.” I’d like to see you use something like that under your title instead of “. . . takes balls.”

    • Wow, thank you so much Linda! I get what you mean about saying balls. But it’s meant to be a use of irony, since women don’t have balls. (Also, some women don’t have ovaries but they’re still awesome.) “It takes balls” is a figure of speech that implies only men, those who are testicle-abled, have guts. But they are so wrong, and that’s what this site is about!
