It's that time of the year again when I have to add another candle on my cake, a wrinkle to my face and an inch to my waist. In other words....I am expanding in every which way except financially.
I'm not complaining....life has its sweet moments at all stages...even if you're over 40.
Sometimes, expecially if you are over 40.
Recently, there was a huge furore when a woman, who was deemed err....too 'matured' by a club. She was denied her complimentary drinks coupons given out for Ladies Night.
Naturally, she was furious since the promotional terms did not state any age restrictions. So was I, and from the feedback...so did general public.
Anyway, 2 thoughts came to mind when I read about this.
1) Firstly, if they go by the age criteria (which I think is below 35), the following ladies would be considered too 'old' and hence not a good enough 'bait' to lure the men in. Now, I'm not sure about the people over at that club, but I do believe quite a few of them has been voted as the world's most beautiful people at some point and they are all above 35 years old. Who are they?
Halle Berry, Catherine Zeta Jones, Carol Cheng, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez, Uma Thurman, Helen Mirren, Gong Li, Maggie Cheung etc..
You could say that they are artistes and therefore look better...but if the said establishment went by age strictly...none of them would have qualified. Of course, I'm not saying these women need the free drinks coupon or the complimentary entry to the club. They could probably afford to buy drinks for eveyone at the club.
So is age really a big factor in attracting men to these places? I guess only men can answer this question.
But I was thinking, if the club really wanted to attract the men, they could probably have played a football match or maybe one of the Victoria Secret's fashion show. Sure can get them to come in droves.
2) Secondly, it suddenly strike me that clubs never organise a Gentlemen's Night. Strange isn't it?
I'm not sure how to intepret this..
a) Young ladies are cheapskate and want their free drinks and the men are foolish enough to be lured by the promise of seeing more young, pretty girls on such nights.
b) Women are smarter and refused to fall for such marketing tricks.
But..if...if...there is a Gentlemen's Night, would I really want to go to a place where young boys in their twenties drink themselves silly with the free drinks? C'mon...what kind of thrill would that be? Would that be exciting for me?
Give me men like Colin Firth, Pierece Brosnan, Sean Connery, Harrison Ford, Brad Pitt, Tony Leong, Takeshi Kaneshiro, Jacky Cheung, Lee Jung Jae.
They have that charisma and confidence that come with age. Not to mention that I find them incredibly sexy.
Maybe I tend to favour the older men at my age but I think if you check with the young ladies who frequent the clubs, you will probably find them more attracted to older men as well.
Anyway, I believe the older-woman-younger-men relationships are on the rise... judging from the spate Korean dramas with this theme. hehe!
Hey, I suddenly remembered I blogged about older women here last year too.
Hmmm...I still want to have bigger eyes and a better figure.
