The Distinguished Man vs. The Vintage Woman



If it weren't enough that we as women have to bleed from our vaginas once a month, gain a shit ton of weight carrying children, endure the horrors that be childbirth, we also have to age. Not gracefully, even.


It's no secret that men tend to age better than women. They look distinguished, dapper, regal. We look like a Coach bag someone left in the back window of their car for three seasons. Crows feet, deep wrinkles, and the constantly feared turkey gobbler neck. That's just how shit shakes out for us as women. I've accepted it. Kind of.

I was recently talking with a friend about our celebrity crushes and I found that my list seemed to lean toward men that were, well, older. That's when it occurred to me that most men somehow just hop right over the mid-life 'I'm falling apart' struggle and straight into sexy, distinguished hotness.

Tell me I'm wrong.


These men all went from hot to hotter. Balding? No problem. They just shave their heads and look totally badass. Crow's feet? Nah. Those are experience lines. Gray hair? Bitches love gray hair. How do they do it? Sexy bastards. Sigh.

My husband is a daily reminder that men reign supreme when it comes to the aging process. Somehow he wakes up more attractive every single day and I'm just sitting here like "Is this a varicose vein or nah?" Aged wine is savored, vintage clothes fawned over, but a vintage woman? Meh.

I guess it's back to Botox, Spanx, & a good dye job. But in the meantime, I do have goals for my golden years. But that's a whole other post.



Happy Tuesday!

  3. Dang those men and their ability to look hotter as they age! Seriously, I think Sean Connery is hot AF, but back in his younger years I'm like Meh. Same with George Clooney. Brad and Robert Downey Jr. were pretty boys, but damn if they don't look better now. I do think some women look better as they age, but they are few and far between. Honestly, I think my forties have been good to me and can honestly say I feel like maybe growing comfortable in my own skin has it's own way of shining through I could have never carried off in my 20's.

    1. I totally agree, they are absolutely more attractive now than they were then. (I don't know how I forgot Sean Connery. He's a babe always.)

      I still can't believe you're in your forties, as you certainly don't look it. As I approach mine, I most definitely feel more confident than I ever have. Age ain't nuthin but a number, doll! XO
