What is it about polling companies and middle-aged women? It seems that scarcely a day passes without seeing a survey on some aspect of the middle-aged female experience. Maybe we should feel grateful, because according to the latest survey, pollsters are the only people who find ladies of a certain age even slightly interesting.
The latest revelation comes from a survey of 2,000 women who feel that 46 is the age that they become invisible to men.
The good news (according to this survey) is that by the time we get to 60 we start feeling better. I believe that would depend on what you've done to take care of yourself, physically, emotionally and spiritually between 46 and 60.
It is a frequent delusion of the almost middle aged to think that you can outwit time. I thought so. In my middle 40's, I was convinced that a succession of birthdays wouldn’t really make any difference to how I felt about myself. I was wrong. I had to go to work and figure out for myself how to hold onto my sexy.
Here are a few helpful tips:
- Play up your assets – you're blessed with a small waist, good neck, great legs – show them off
Invest in good jeans – you're never too old to wear jeans – just make sure you get a good fit
Stop Listening to the naysayers who say life is over at 50
Change careers – do what makes you happy so it doesn't feel like work
Don't hold on to relationships that no longer nurture your soul
Change your look – go from just OK to sexy sophisticated
Go for a bra fitting and buy a whole new wardrobe of sexy bras and panties that embellish your curves
pollsters are trying to make us believe. We are powerful, fabulous females and that only gets better with seasoning. Yes, Virginia getting older does have its benefits.
I am convined that middle aged women of today are creating another template for aging and it's not what the pollsters are telling us. Yes, Virginia, there is sexy even after middle age.
