Remember when you were little and you could laugh with abandon? Play all day and then eat like you were starving? The quote from Courtney E. Martin says so much about what we have given up as women:
Over the last two years I have started dating. Believe me, this is not what I thought I would be doing at 52 years old. But I love the companion of men. I love how they are able to have fun and be a boy once in a while. Look for adventure in life. They want to find a woman that is willing to take their sense of humor, laugh at their jokes and give them a smart come back.
Not all men are looking for that model type. A common thread in the men I have met is a women that is confident and happy. Unable to see what she doesn’t have but loves what she does. A very special man, who is significantly younger than I am, said to me regarding our age difference, “if it doesn’t bother me, why should it bother you?”
I realized I needed to stop talking about my insecurities. If it was a problem for him, he would not be there. That would include my insecurity about my weight, my hair, the lines around my eyes, etc., etc., etc…….
Creating a buzz….
