Will We Ever Stop Focussing So Much On Age?

I appears to be a big deal to have older women on cover of magazines unless it’s an AARP magazine I guess. I met a woman last night who was 67 and looked 50. I’m sure I said “you look amazing”. If I met her and when she was 35 I wouldn’t have said anything. So I’m as guilty as all the rest.
