"I switched my age range to an upper limit of 45 and… lo and behold! It was like entering a secret vortex of hotness: Women over 40. These women were confident. They were direct. They were liberated. And they were HOT. Incredibly hot.
1) Confidence: They have some major life experience under their hoods. Usually, they’ve already been through a marriage, parenthood and probably a divorce. Having hocked their “golden ticket” (i.e., marriage)–the purported key to all of their dreams and fantasies–they now realize that if it’s to be, it’s up to me. They no longer need a man to fill some void in their life; they know what they want, and they’re not afraid to go after it! They are also comfortable in their own skin. They don’t do the whole bull**** routine that unmarried women do in their 20’s and 30’s. They’re no longer trying to be the woman that will attract the man. They know their value, and they own their beauty, which radiates from the inside-out.
2) Direct: Many women in their 20’s/30’s allow men to transgress their boundaries–constantly–without sticking up for themselves. You will NOT see a woman over 40 make this mistake very often.
3) Liberated. Since many–but not all–women who are over 40 and dating have previously been married, there is usually an experience of having taken charge of their lives by ending a bad relationship. (Yes, most marriages are ended by women.) Once a woman–or anyone, for that matter–has gotten out of their cage, the last thing they are going to allow is to get stuck in another one. Not only that, but they also have no desire to put someone else in a cage, either. Their liberation is liberating.
4) HOT: I could have gone with sexy, but… who are we kidding? Most women prefer to be called hot over sexy–so long as she knows that you value all of her attributes and not just her physical ones. When a woman has been taking good care of herself throughout her 20’s and 30’s (physically, mentally, emotionally and nutritionally), and is confident, direct and liberated, there is a good chance that she is going to be spicy hot!" - Alex Obed via alexobedblog
