The older I get the more confident I am, so yes David, it's been pretty common knowledge that 40 is the new 30. Like I was telling Farhan in another thread, I feel younger at 36 than I did at 26. To me it's about coming into your own.
Some people are obsessed with the age of a woman. Some men think just because they are with a younger woman, it makes them feel younger. When in reality, you're still the age you are despite how young your mate is. For me, I seem to find more common ground with men in and around the 1-2 age difference. We grew up in the same generation, and for me, I much prefer it, but that's me.
I've always found beauty in one Sonia Braga over the years and IMO, she's aged well.
