A man after my own heart - he likes natural looking women without the heavy duty makeup. I do not wear makeup day-to-day and only when it is a special occasion, like a formal dinner out or for pictures.
I am pleased to report that my complexion is excellent, a combo of the effects of FIRE and not clogging my pores every single day.

I like a woman however she feels comfortable. Wants to slather on the goop. She wants to go bare thats good too. Im flexible. Hey after a few drinks who cares... Hell some days I don't want to shave or bathe. I m all good with the boobie jobs and lip shots. Hey whatever floats your boat. No sense picking one or the other. The other just ends up getting pissed off. Just to be a gentleman Id supply the sandpaper or chemicals.

I'm always amazed at the number of people who don't believe they "look their age." It's kind of sad, really. After all...you ARE your age. Consequently, that's what "your age" looks like.

You know it's amazing that all you guys look great after a few drinks, too.... No ugly people at closing time...just when you roll over in the morning I guess.

Despite my lovely avatar, in real life I look my age and I would rather look my age! After all, I will never be 61 again, and when I am 81, 61 will look pretty young to me.

Before meeting Frank, some of those I dated told me they didn't look their age. I politely agreed, but really they looked pretty bad. Their hair dying and other efforts to look younger just made them look older and a bit pitiful, as well as projecting a lack of self confidence to me.

Airbrushing anyone??

Concerning that before and after shot, I also felt that some of the difference between the shots was due to lighting differences. So I downloaded the picture and played around with contrast, and color temperature, and the results were dramatic.

What an odd thing to say. After all, you are looking right at them, surely they could trust you to form your own opinions about whether they looked their ages or not.

I have never heard a woman say anything this stupid.

Yes, you meet all kinds on the internet. Most people think I am a good listener, and I guess when confronted by someone nodding, listening, and friendly, some guys just babble on and let it all hang out. It's amazing what some people will say. Before long, some guys start talking about what they are wearing and asking me what I think about it, and they babble on from there.

Well, he is 70 years old. I realize that's not a great picture, but people are usually shocked when they find out he's 70.

Not me - - my guess was 68-70. I didn't post my answer, because I thought it was a trick question!

Guys I know don't even look close, so I've heard.
