I find hot women over 50 more attractive in many ways than young hot women.
And when does female fertility end? Oh, about 50, just like this woman points out. It's just mechanics.
It’s not like I’d ever been a head-turner. Reasonably attractive, I’ve never stood out in the ways that make people either excited or uncomfortable. But I was pleasing enough (and pleasant enough) that I’d gather grins and glances.
But somewhere in my early 50s, people just stopped noticing me.
I started to have to say “Hello?” at the register to get the cashier’s attention. As I repeated my coffee order, I could see their eyes moving past me, lighting on younger, bolder, more interesting people.
“This is it,” I thought. “I’ve become invisible.”
The Lou Reed on the mixtape is insightful. She didn't know who it was, but if the guy wasn't hot, she'd pretend she'd know.
