I’m 49, and for the past decade have enjoyed great dates, amazing relationships, a few kicks in the face, and a lot of love.
And no, I have not had my teeth whitened or vagina tightened.
I’m quite fat, in early-onset menopause, with a scruffy house, loads of dependents and sod all cash.
Only then should a forty-something woman consider filling out a dating profile. Let us instead examine the notion of the over-forties dating scrapheap, and how it applies only to ladies — you may have seen the Amy Schumer sketch Last Fuckable Day.
