My wife showed two of our nieces a couple of shots of us when we first got together around 1979-1980.
They said, “Wow, aunt Nicky, you won the star prize when you snagged uncle Jean!”
She said, “Are you kidding, look at me in those shots, then check out your grey haired uncle Jean now.”

Crazy question! Who knows and who decides what is attractive or not?

LOL. I don't think that is fair.

I agree. While I wouldn't go so far as to say I have "a beauty", I fit in better looks-wise with other women now at 61 than I did when I was younger. I was never attractive, never. I could get myself up to "presentable" with hairstyle and makeup, but that was about it.

But now, in my later years, that oily skin that gave me all the zits when I was young has helped staved off the lines comparable to a lot of women my age. That thick, coarse, wavy hair that was so unfashionable and that everyone else gave me useless products and tips to "fix" all my life is now a bonus because I'm starting to see the scalps of my contemporaries who had that perfect straight silky hair back in the day.

That height that made me the butt of mockery and stupid basketball remarks since I was 14 came with a strong bone structure that's still holding me upright and keeps me far from frail.

Some of you who had all the goodies looks-wise in your youth have now slid down closer to my level with age. Welcome. I've always been here. You'll survive.

Nope. A solid 3. Have never been told I was attractive in half a decade. Not even been flirted with so there's that. Even my wife of 31 years has said many times during that time to me and others I am not attractive. She says "I fell in love for his humor, charm, creative art, and you're interesting" (Whatever that means). ...and yes she is serious. Soooo... kinda confirms it. I clearly played above my game.

Although, just once in a while it would be nice to be told "you look nice today" by a stranger once a great while. :/
