Swimming the Medley
Answers to “Truth not Dare” Nine
. . .fantastic questions. Some fun, some deep, some confronting, some straightforward.
On Sat Aug 7 I wrote:
It's finally time for me to join the ranks of those who play the three questions game.
So, whatever you care to ask I will answer truthfully and discursively.
(But I reserve the right to be ambiguous lol)
keithcancook’s question is the next one on the list, but I’m having a spot of trouble with it.
Help Keith! Which way up does this *** book go?
So I’ll just move on to some other questions. proceed678 asked:
Q have u married?
A Yes I have. I have also divorced. So now I’m not married.
Q You said that thirty-four was your favorite age to be, and I am going to turn thirty-four this week and I feel sick about it. Did you realize at the time 34 was going to be great, or was it looking back at your life that you discovered this?
A I did know, actually very clearly, at the time that I wouldn’t want to get any younger again and that I was in good shape and I was grateful for it. I was a late bloomer. Straight hair had changed from being the absolute pits to the height of fashion. When my children were born I began to feel more comfortable with my sexual identity, and much more sexually responsive. It took me until almost then to find a job I really liked and a sense of professional direction. I lost my youthful uncertainties and decided I had a right to be alive.
What I didn’t realize until later was that little by little I was going to feel less energetic and less attractive and that the personal side of my life was going to get difficult for some time.
Once I got cut off from the chatroom just as B0SSIERBOY asked:
Q So, have you ever gone for your hairdresser?
A Never in actuality, but often in fantasy. In fact in fantasy every time I have my hair done by a male hairdresser. Why so? … Partly because they are always young, good looking and take real pains with their appearance. Partly cos hairdressers always smell good. Partly cos they give me the WHOLE of their attention (for the duration) and partly cos it is their role to make me look better and thus they make me feel better about myself.
I love hairdressers!
Thank you for the questions, Proceed, Linana and Bossy!

Thank you for answering my question. That is sort of how I feel now.|
I don't want to be young and dumb again, but I don't feel attractive like I used to. Double-edged sword.

My mate happened into the room as I was pondering your responses. So I told her about the three question game and I read your response to the age question.|
She seems to have covered this ground in the same order as you have. She then asked whether the blog has exposed other ways men and women are different as they age.
So you got me thinking.......is it different for men and women?
