Men are pigs. (OK, I do NOT mean that literally, I like men).

I held it together through my 40s pretty well, still got hit on by younger guys and such.

But my 50s? The aging bus may not have run me over, but is has certainly grazed me and left me limping.....

I don't know how good looking I am. I'm still in the process of refining myself and actualizing my style. I estimate myself as average in everything except for height. 6'0"

I'm struggling with my weight which does not do my looks a favor.

I still believe in my potential. And i'm not entirely sure how good my potential looks.

Almost everyone thinks they are better looking than they really are.

Crap.

...So in actuality I am below average. Now, I think I'm below average, so this means I'm ugly. Now I think I'm ugly so I guess I'm unreasonably hideous...


...You can't go lower than...

Oh, crap!!! I just did.

I've never really judged myself. But it does feel good when a woman would look at me and give me a smile. My wife ignores it. She used to be bothered by it but I told her that I only have eyes for her. I love her. I mean...She puts up with my jokes and supports me when I'm having a terrible time and listens to me when we have a fatality I have to work or other terrible incident. Besides, she taught me how to love again!!

Well, at almost 58 it's getting more and more difficult to be okay looking, let alone good looking. It's depressing to look in the mirror but I suppose aging is better than the alternative, at least for now.

Remember folks, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder". No matter WHAT you look like there are those out there who will dig it and find you attractive. Seriously, no matter what.

And to answer the question, I think I look good for a healthy, reasonably fit 70 y.o. woman. I have reasonable expectations of my looks considering age, and am happy to be mostly fit and able to do what I like. If anyone thinks I am attractive or not is of zero consequence to me. My husband thinks I am great, and that is the only person's opinion that I care about.

Couldn't agree more!
