You can say that 40 is the new 30, but it’s still 10 years shy of 50. There’s just no bones about it, we’re getting older.
We found a funny list on Huffington Post of things that only women over 40 will truly understand. Take a look at a few of these shocking revelations:
- The picture of yourself that you have in your head is the more attractive younger sister of the person staring back at you from the mirror.
- Sequins make you look like a cougar.
- You get a full night’s sleep, but still look like you stayed up all night without all the fun that staying up all night used to be in your 20s.
- Back pain.
- Your favorite bands of the 80s are now considered oldies.
- Flirting for discounts doesn’t work anymore.
- 21-year-old guys are still hot, but also young enough to be your children.
- You have no idea what is on MTV other than Teen Mom.
- Hipsters now ironically wear what the cool clothes you wore in high school.
- You’re more likely to be confused for a teacher than a student on a college campus.
- Beside the Kardashians, you have no idea who the people on the tabloids are.
