Ok, it took me a while, but I've got one.

At 51 I've learned it's best to be on the bottom...never on top. The face sags...........

a rare serious moment from freebird...this one blew my mind

I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems
today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.
Age 48

i could have written it myself. widowed at age 46. restarted a new life at 47. FIREd at age 48.
i will be OK.

If your man is bothered by sagging, you need to trade up to someone who knows what counts.

I have a friend (this was when we were in our 30's) that had a mirror above his bed and mirrors surrounding the bed....he was such a horn dog. I haven't talked to him in a while, but I imagine he's taken them down by now.....

Maybe it's a good thing to need glasses after age 50 or so. When you both take off your glasses, you can't see the minor details.
