Why not 50.

I have been asked by a few men out there..."Why 50?"
Well to tell you the truth I am tiring to be flexible. You see, I have met many nice, kind, men over the years. Many different ages.
How does the song go..."I loved them every one"
I have found in my experience that most men under 50 and can (on occasion lose their minds) i.e. Marriage proposals, I'll take care of you, I can't live without you.
My main reason for someone over 50 is that my husband and I have lived a lot of lives in the short time we have been on this planet and it takes a man who can talk and is comfortable and confident (not conceded) with himself to engage me enough for me to be comfortable with him.
I like the idea of a man that is mature, fun,
and knows more about life that I can learn things from.
Learn what you may ask...from the big philosophical questions. To why it is better to wear your watch with the face on the inside of your wrist.( In case you want to know...If you are doing something and hit the top of you wrist you don't hurt the watch.)
Anyway, 50 truly isn't a hard and fast rule but at least I can believe with that criteria that you have some ideas on life the universe and everything.

What's 50, an age, it's but a number; but yet its so important in this age conscious country. I'm far from 50, yet I can say with certainty that I've done, seen, experienced, traveled & possibly learned more than many a person with 50 in this country; & I'm just getting started. It's like those wonderful insurance adjusters who like to use some magical number for vhicle milage that the manufacturer says the vehicle will last, nothing else matters anymore, just the milage. SO I have to disagree.

Some where along the road to 50+ if you are lucky you realize that life should not be a carved in stone daily ritual and that the people who are relaxed enough to enjoy themselves in most situations are really the ones who are happy in life. It's the "Bloom where you are planted" rule and some times it takes a little Bull Shit mixed in with the Sun and Rain to make things grow as they should. The trick is to develop enough patience so that getting a little BS on your boots don't warp you out of shape. It dosen't really matter what age you are when you discover this, the important thing is that you discover it........

Ok guys I said 50 WASN'T a hard and fast rule. I was just thought that the 50 year old mark would get the attention to those of you 50 and older. That way you knew I was intrested.
You are starting to break me down and I guess I will have to edit my profile soon. And just ask for someone calm and intresting.

The number works. Here's the example, "yet I can say with certainty that I've done, seen, experienced, traveled & possibly learned more than many a person with 50 in this country;" was the comment hubovetz made. Well, if he, for example, is 40 and we both "experience" life at the same speed, that is 10 more years of experience one has over the other. True, if he's experienced life faster, then perhaps the "insight" received may be greater, but life's experiences are valuable lessons provided you wish to learn.

HMMM...calm and interesting...well I am only 46, but have defiantely attained the status of calm and intersting...working for a telecommunications company and the biggest problem in the company is communications, and your on the road and you just flew back to VA/DC from your home in TX and could have stayed in TX since the project all of sudden ended...and you just laughed...well then i think i have achieved that eternal bliss of matching calamity with serenity...but hey, in math you always round up and so at 46 i am 50...and I remember what I was doing when Kennedy was assasianted...LOL...

Its not so much about what a person has done or how many places they've been or things they've seen as it is how a person grows and matures through the years. Its the gifts of serenity, courage and wisdom we're finally granted to deal with life and the BS that goes with it. Its the patience to let things slide that would have others going ballistic. Its the maturity to deal with life in a calm manner. It's these things and sooooo much more I think nite_haq must like and I agree a person doesn't have to be 50 to obtain these gifts, but very few men can honestly say they have before they've at least approached 50.
