A short yet interesting piece on dating  by the late Andy Rooney #throwbackthursday

AndyRooneyThe following quote was written years ago by CBS correspondent Andy Rooney in reference to Men’s dating habits.

Today, it seems that the tables have turned and it seems that most woman won’t consider dating a man that is even 2 years older than her, however t is more than willing to date someone half her age…REALLY…?? COME ON NOW…!! As for me… I am not that narrow minded…

 A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, ‘What are you thinking?’ She doesn’t care what you think. If a woman over 40 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 more interesting.

 Women over 40 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. Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 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 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it’s not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress. Ladies, I apologize.

  For all those men who say, “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free,” here’s an update for you. Now 80 percent of women are against marriage, why? Because women realize it’s not worth buying an entire pig, just to get a little sausage

What do you think about the statements made in this article?


Are more women against marriage in 2014 than ever before?

Is the relationship playing field more level as we get older and know how to pick our battles, stand up for ourselves and voice what we want, need and expect from relationships?
