7 Reasons We Love an Older Guy

As a man's age increases, so does his his upkeep

Images loading...

As much as I adore my forty-something husband, I do understand why women my age often make a beeline to Cougar Town the second time around. Have you ever priced the upkeep on a middle-aged man? As men age, their standards change. For example, I married someone who at 23 didn't even own sheets. But now? He gets hives if he's not sleeping on 600-thread-count Egyptian cotton.

You must be talking about "metro-sexual", high earning men in cosmopolitan cities. Here in redneck Fla my 43 year old is thrilled to receive a $5 bottle of wine for his birthday and I'm lucky if he cleans out the dirt from underneath his fingernails (he's a mechanic).....
