Myth Busters – White Men Don’t Age Well?
I got an anonymous message from a reader in her late 20′s, who claims to look like she is in her early 20′s, basically stating that she is really attracted to younger white guys, but when she looks at the ones closer to her age they have not been “aging very well”. She is scared that the guys she finds so attractive now will “look 10x older” in only a matter of years and wonders what to do.
I have good news. You won’t have to break up with your man every few years to traipse the university halls or take up a side gig tutoring freshmen for fresh, attractive meat. When it comes to white men not aging very gracefully, the answer quite simply is, YMMV.
However, if this matter plagues your mind keeping you up at night and you are really scared about your beau deteriorating quickly, look to his father for signs for how well he will age. So, is dad balding or does he still have a full head of hair? Is dad all wrinkled and shriveled up or still working out at the gym every other day?
Also consider the lifestyles of the men you choose to date. If he has a very stressful job/career, drinks, smokes, does drugs and/or parties a lot, then you can be pretty sure that will affect his youthful appearance. Is he into eating healthy and taking care of himself? I think that a woman who keeps herself in shape and leads a healthy lifestyle would be remiss to choose a partner who doesn’t value those same things. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander, and if he wants an attractive woman by his side who takes good care of herself he should hold himself to the same standards, no?
Have any of you ever pondered this question, experienced this (this being a prematurely deteriorating man)? If so, what’s your advice to our anonymous question asker? Impart your wisdom below…
