While the popular politically correct viewpoint is that 40 something women can still be attractive, i feel that many people don't 'buy' it and continue to devalue them. (Unless you do look like the movie starts mentioned!) I personally felt less attractive that day, which is one reason i took such offense to her remark; i was reacting to the "something missing" of my lost youth and beauty. And when she refused to listen to my point of view on that, i felt "misunderstood" and all my 4ish issues snowballed. Sometimes i feel i look older than my years (45) because of all the thinking and worrying about such things.
