I strive for happiness - over 50

Two years or so back, I had blogged about gerontophobia. I received some interesting responses to that post. I guess it was my way to announce to the world my feelings about being attracted to older men.

Now, I have found the reason why I'm attracted to older men - because they are happy - or lets say "happier" than people younger! A recently concluded study at the Stony Brook University says that happiness begins at the age of 50. You can read more about the study here. Here is the TOI Op-Ed page article which supports the claim.

So, I'm well on my way to finding happiness! What about you?

Glad to hear that you are on the "Happy" path...although i kind of disagree with what you've stated - older men being more happy than the younger ones....is it about the age or about your attitude towards life. I think i have made my point!

Robin - well, that's exactly what the article is also referring to. Older men get adjusted to life better and are more contented. :)

I find myself attracted to older men, and it just happens! My first year at college was spent stalking a professor who was well over 50 years of age. Even now, I find myself instinctively falling for a strong, very well read older man.

My reason is perhaps that I find most men my age to be very immature (yes, yes, I am talking in a cliche, but also from experience). Of course, my preoccupation with older men makes me happy, but I do not necessarily think all older men are happier. Some are in fact far more miserable than they were ever.

Sorry for the novel!
