Women Over 50: You Are Radiant!

I hear from countless women over 50 about the downside of aging–everything from wrinkles to muffin tops to chronic illness to aging parents to the challenges of dating. But while there are so many things we just can’t control as we age, there are so many benefits to being over 50!

 

 

But, no one wants to hear that from me. So, when I got an email from a 53 year-old reader, who was going on and on about how awesome women over 50 are, I had to share it, which I did in this week’s Love Essentially column, published in the Chicago Tribune Pioneer Press. One thing that will always stick with me his how he said “Your radiance will be more than enough to attract real men.” 

Women Over 50 Have Radiance In Abundance by Jackie Pilossoph for Chicago Tribune Pioneer Press

Perhaps one of the most depressing things that has ever happened to me occurred the other day when I was riding a crowded bus from an airport to a rental car place and a guy who looked way older than me stood up and offered me his seat.

Why is that depressing? Because it made me feel old, which let’s be honest, I am.

Like me, I think most women over 50 have insecurities about aging, especially when it comes to two things: the physical drawbacks that go along with getting older (think muffin top, varicose veins, wrinkles, etc.) and dating.

I can’t count the number of emails I receive from women over 50 who tell me how hard it is to meet men, and how men our age and even older want to date younger women. (Click here to read the rest of the article, published in the Chicago Tribune Pioneer Press.)
