my husband has always loved "hot older women." This meant (in his 20s) any woman over 50. Now it goes as high as 75, when he looks at some of those paleo hotties.
He says it's a combination of taking care of herself, really good looks, and self possession (as well as being fashionable) that makes the difference for him.

Although I am certain guys like an attractive lady, I always thought the point of being a cougar was not your physical beauty, but your experience. It takes a while, after all, to learn enough to 'know things'. One might be 'falling apart' but still have plenty to offer in terms of knowledge and confidence. All cats are grey in the dark, but only some of them can do somersaults(metaphorically speaking, although, well.....).

Now if I could only know all the things I know now plus have a 16 year old body, I would be unstoppable.
Youth, as they say, is wasted on the young.

If I were in my 20's again with this level of self confidence, I would go to NYC and be a star on Broadway.

Oh, in my case there was no lack of self confidence in my 20's. I was just talking about the purely bedroom sense of the word. With what I know now, about myself plus about men, plus a young hot body I would be unstoppable.
So, I guess the next best thing is having all that knowledge plus an older slightly scarred and beat up but still fairly hot body.

Happy Christmas, Robin (and all Paleobird-Adventure-Followers)!
I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.

Thank you Sigi. You folks in the other hemisphere always get a jump on things. It's still Christmas Eve here.

That sounds like a lot of fun! We are doing the beach with neighbors. A group picnic and such.
DS is running around like a mad-man. Seriously, he is hepped up on the christmas energy. And this is with no candy, no presents, and no decorations. The boy is just . . . excited. LOL And we are exhausted because we stayed up too late watching comedy. You'd think we would learn.
The sun is shining bright and beautiful, so the beach is going to be lovely today.

Can I come visit? It's all grey and rainy here.

I did indulge in this awesome dessert that I think could definitely be paleofied. It was log made of one layer of cream cheese and one of a pumpkin mix then rolled up to make a spiral swirl in each slice. It was really pretty and a nice alternative to the ubiquitous cakes and pies. The pumpkin part was like a very moist pumpkin bread. That could be done with coconut flour. You see I wasn't really indulging in a dessert. I was studying it for the greater good of Primal research <wink, nudge>.
Tonight I am invited to the Christmas dinner of my friends and neighbors across the street. I gave them my Mom's old teak dining room table when I was cleaning out Dad's house. It will be kind of weird to have dinner tat the table I grew up with but in another house. My folks would be happy to know that there is another family using it though.

Yes, you can come and visit any time, and no doubt every kiwi on the boards will host you.
It's so interesting to go through that process. . . of letting things go and then 'visiting' them. I think the pumpkin dessert sounds nice!
I made sweet potato pikelets (small pancakes) with my client's home made orange marmalade, and some whipped cream (no sugar, so good!) -- great little success there.
My ILs are here. I'm doing ok. lol
