> An over 40 woman will never wake you in the middle of the night to ask,
> "What are you thinking?" She doesn't care what you think.
> If an over 40 woman doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit

> usually something more interesting.
> An over 40 woman knows herself well enough to be assured in who she

> true of younger women.
> Over 40 women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off you
