Dating in your 40's...

Now that I'm 40, there are some days that I just feel OLD!  I'm not even talking physically, I'm talking mentally as well.  I find myself saying things like, "If I were your mother!" or "When I was your age?" which always reminds me of how I am no longer "cool."  Here is a trick if you want to feel young again...start dating.  Not because of the mushy, warm and fuzzies that you get; but because of the the way you'll act the second something goes wrong!  My oh my!!  Hit a bump in a relationship and you will be instantly transported back to high school!!  You will talk about the "jerk" to ALL of your girlfriends.  You will eat ice cream, completely ignoring your lactose intolerance.  You will post attention-getting comments on your facebook, twitter, myspace, etc. OR youtube videos of 80's love songs.  Your behavior will transport you to a time when your skin was tight and pimply and your boobs were still where they belonged!  Sigh.  I think I will go fight with my boyfriend...I need a facelift.
