“Yes!” but it’s all a matter of her perspective.
First we have to answer the question of, “What about a woman is expiring?” Is a woman afraid that men won’t notice her anymore? But wait, when she was 24 this same woman couldn’t be bothered by men pining to get in her pants? Now, at 44, does she want that same attention she found so unbearable 20 years ago? Or, is that she expired from something simpler, something more practical?
Let’s take one man and one woman; both are 24, very good looking, and sexy people. Now assume that they both work the same shift as a cashier at a fast food restaurant. Half way through their shift, enters a man and a woman; both in their mid 40’s, good looking, and based on appearance, wealthy. Thinking of this scenario, I want you to ask yourself; “Will the 24 year olds have a chance with either one of the 40 year olds? Why/why not?”
I propose that the middle aged man gets the date with the young hottie while the 24 year old guy has zero chance with the older woman. If you have a different answer, begin to really look at how much you’re in denial. You see, young beautiful women in their 20’s and 30’s will always have more options than their male counterparts, particularly if these young bucks are not “established”. But around 40, the odds flip. The older woman will have fewer opportunities or options for hooking up while a man’s odds improve greatly.
The reason for all this is very simple. Young women are looking for the “life” they’ve been told would make them happy: A loving husband, two and a half kids, beautiful house, shiny SUV, and enough spending money to purchase that LV purse, tennis bracelet, and throw dinner parties to show her friends how absolutely adored she is. As for men, we pretty much think of one thing whether 18 or 88: “I wonder if her ass really looks as good as I imagine OR how can I convince this lovely to sleep with me?” Tell me it isn’t true.
The problem is, as women get older, they become less sexually attractive to men, so their available opportunities and options for fulfilling the “life” they’ve imagined, shrinks like you know what in a cold swimming pool. Sorry ladies, but by the time you are in your mid 40’s you either used your “assets” suitably to get what you wanted or waited too long for the best offer ,that never came.
For the men, well, our looks in the end really don’t matter. As men get older, women assume we have had the necessary time to accumulate the assets to get what it takes to live the “life” she desires.
Hey, maybe I’m wrong. I actually wish that life wasn’t so materialistic and petty. Wouldn’t life make more sense if we all just wanted to screw or we all just wanted to have the “life”? But maybe that’s why the dialogue on the madness of dating is still so much alive, because if all I really wanted was sex, I’d just go get a hooker. On the other hand if all I wanted was the “life”, all I’d need is a successful roommate.
All I really want is a trustworthy woman that has something to say and with enough grey matter to articulate it. Imagine that, a mutually respectful relationship with someone you find sexually attractive. As for what she’d get from me, well, I’m rich and I’m definitely not Brad Pitt, so you’d have to ask her.
