It’s a subtle change.
One minute, our dream partner is rich/brilliant/gorgeous/could make a porn star blush. A few decades later, and our idea of what’s hot has undergone a seismic shift.
Must be nature’s way of ensuring we don’t all throw ourselves under a bus after age 40.
SEXY THEN SEXY NOW
A full head of hair Any hair
All night sex All night sleep
Hot car Hot chauffeur
Six-pack abs Puts six pack in recycling bin
Good listener Selective hearing
Valuable possessions Values
Nice smile Has most of his original teeth
Great in bed Makes the bed
Erotic talk Knows when to shut up
Heavy breathing Still breathing
Here’s to the imperfectly perfect people we love! xx, Alisa
