Is Age Just a Number?

Sunday, June 19th, 2011

Inquiring minds want to know! My favourite entrepreneur commented this week on how slim the odds are for women in their 30’s to even be asked out on a date. She claims the men are running the other direction. Love is not blind but deaf. They don’t want to hear that biological clock ticking so loudly.

The very young Fedex guy waiting for the office elevator didn’t miss a beat when he turned, whipped out his iPhone, and asked for my telephone number. I shook my head, smiled, and said, “You made my day but you’re too young”. He bounced back with “Age is just a number”.

Today I quizzed a 68 year old friend of a friend on how young would she date and she said 45.
Then there is my gal pal, Ms. Young-at-Heart, age 48, who is head over heels with her new 25 year old love!

Trending younger? Who’s counting? Not the men.
