I must confess that I am what I have heard referred to as an "old man botherer" - I prefer my men to be a bit older, with a good deal more life experience and far less emotional hang ups than their younger counter parts.
|My Husband and I......|
Thing is, I like grey hair. I think lines on the face add character (on a man - not on my face, but that's a whole other post!) and I actually enjoy the fact that we can sometimes view life from the perspective of two different generations.
We lock horns now and then - with age comes a stubbornness and spirit that can be hard to break - but I think that's part of the appeal for me - I like a challenge!
We attract a few strange glances when we step out together, and I'll admit that my mum took some persuading at first, but we are happy together and that's all we care about now.
So if you ask me, the older man rocks - and if it's good enough for Catherine Zeta, Calista Flockhart, Katie Holmes et al, it's good enough for me!
