For those women over a certain age...39+
(what I learned the hard way)
Do not feel guilty if you only read 30 pages in a book...in most cases this is more than the author really wished for (if the author has any sense of self-realization).
Do not feel reluctant to admit you hate mascara and you only put it on when on date one. Same goes for waxing...tight undies...and high heels. I still cannot understand why men prefer us with extra-terrestrial eyes, red and achy skin, breathless (and not because we are in love!) and with deformed spine.
Do not feel bad going to a business meeting in your All-Stars and blue jeans (if this is what makes you productive and happy).
Do not feel guilty if you end up in bed with the guy on date one. To be honest with you, I prefer to get to know the guy and develop some degree of intimacy. But, whatever makes us happy!
Do not feel bad if you are the only woman talking to the men in the group...you are probably single and have developed a love for soccer and F1. Their wives will be kind of upset, but please Do Not Care!!! Of course, you should know that this will most probably be the last time you see any of them.
Do not feel bad if you buy shoes that do not fit...identify a friend with the smaller size and give them to her. Just try and restrict 'smaller size' to female friends and to feet.
Do not feel bad if you date a younger man, and do not make him feel bad he is younger.
Do not feel bad if you want to change you life and start another circle. You are probably romantic (hopefully not self-destructive) and love to push your limits. Hybris is ok, we are not in classical Athens! Viva Homo Ludens! (By now you know I am one of them, already looking for the next destination).
Do not feel bad to openly admit any emotion.
bye for now...
