[QUOTE=Iron Fireling;965037]I also find... that if a guy of a similar age DOES show interest in you, BUT assumes you're 15 years or so younger than you are, he's generally a creepy guy after a younger woman anyway :rolleyes:. (I'm talking the sort of older guys who hang out in clubs etc. where most of the people are significantly younger).[/QUOTE]
Depressingly, if a sensitive cultured guy older than me finds me attractive or interesting, he backs off because I look so young and he wants to avoid that label of sharking much younger women which you describe.
Looking young is a serious curse for me. But I'm gonna work on that.

Paint-on liver spots?
My hair is kind of a beacon for attention so I could not say whether I get attention from my lifestyle changes haha. I often forget why people are staring at me.
FW, good to see you posting. Your smartassery has been missed.
Yep. My wife has taken notice of other people taking notice.
Probably doesn't help much that I'm not presently wearing a wedding band. It doesn't fit anymore LOL. Need to have it taken down a size or two.

Anyone on here look their age? Older? :)

I look a lot younger than I really am. Most people think I am in my early 30s and I have even have people recently tell me they thought I was in my mid-20s. I think they either need glasses or they are completely clueless about how people age.
Some people read energy and vitality along with noticeable fitness as youth, regardless of the other markers like smile lines or grey hairs. I look at most of my partner's male friends and realize how rare a guy who is fit over 40 really is.
