The Dirty Thirties Ain't So Bad

I feared the big 3-0. I was absolutely terrified. I'm almost 2 years into my 30's now and so far it's been the best 2 years of my life. Who knew? So I was reading a blog (Blowing Away My Haze) the other day and came across this. I thought I would post it on my site too.

Ths is a piece written by Andy Rooney - CBS 60 Minutes.

"As I grow in age, I value women who are over 30 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why:

A woman over 30 will never wake you in the middle of the night to ask, "What are you thinking?" She doesn't care what you think.

If a woman over 30 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do. And, it's usually something more interesting.

A woman over 30 knows herself well enough to be assured in who she is, what she is, what she wants and from whom.

Few women past the age of 30 give a damn what you might think about her or what she's doing.

Women over 30 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you, if they think they can get away with it.

Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated.

A woman over 30 has the self-assurance to introduce you to her women friends. A younger woman with a man will often ignore even her best friend because she doesn't trust the guy with other women. A woman over 30 couldn't care less if you're attracted to her friends because she knows her friends won't betray her.

Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 30. They always know.

A woman over 30 looks good wearing bright red lipstick. This is not true of younger women or drag queens.

Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 30 is far sexier than her younger counterpart.

Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk or if you are acting like one! You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her.

Yes, we praise women over 30 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed hot woman of 30+, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year-old waitress."

Sorry, I have to contact you like this...
You put a comment on my site and I got it by email. I tried to reply, but it seems like I can't reply to it as the returning email address says;
And you also don't have your email address visible in your profile.

Anyway, could you mail me normally so I can reply to your questions?

Hee. That's excellent. I am about 7 months away from 30, and was a little spoked about it at first, and then my husbnd said that he nejoyed his 30's the most. He said that when you're in your 20's, you're always looked at as though you're younger, dumber etc. When you're 30, you ave maturity, intelligence and people look at you in a different light. I own my own business, and WANT to be seen with more respect. I look forward to 30 now. :P

I absolutely dreaded turning the prospect of thirty. Augh. I would be so OLD! But by the time the date came around, I finally decided to take charge of my life. My twenties sucked. THIS decade was going to better. I was taking charge. And so far, while it's been tough, I've never been better. I've finally figured out me.

Ladies, 30's are awesome!
