Of an Age

Eye opener #2 for my trip to Daytona Beach…women over 40 should meet men Â in person only.
Yeah, forget the Internet or any fix-up or any service where a womanâ€™s age, real or imagined, is openly stated. According Â to Â several Â women Â I Â talked Â to, Â men Â will not show any interest in a woman over 40 Â without meeting her and will not meet her if sheâ€™s over 40, unless heâ€™s well past 50.
The best way to ensure a romantic liaison with a man in his 30â€™s or 40â€™sâ€”or even his 20â€™s!â€”is to meet him in person. If he knows before the meeting that the woman is Â 40, Â heâ€™ll Â run Â away. Â Why? Â Because Â he Â really Â doesnâ€™t know what 40 looks like. Even when heâ€™s talking Â to a woman in her mid-40â€™s, heâ€™ll often think sheâ€™s closer to
35 or a more â€œsuitableâ€ age to what he thinks he likes.
â€œYou have to meet them in person,â€ one woman tells me, â€œand Â theyâ€™ll fall in love with you. Then later, when age comes up, theyâ€™ll already be in love with you before they know youâ€™re older than them.â€
At this conference, I got a chance to see that for my- self, and it made perfect sense.
