Here’s a slap from the retirement belt for all the guys out there who – as the women in our lives have been telling us for years – are interested in only one thing.
Well, now there’s an amendment to that idea.
As everyone knows, we have a lot more women than men down here in Florida. Women live longer – and nowhere is that more evident than in the retirement belt. Some days, it feels as if the ratio of women to men has to be 10-to-1.
One of the jokes about dating here is that women want a man who can drive at night. Our night vision goes long before our ability to see in daylight does, and it makes going out much nicer if you don’t have to take a cab.
Uber is making things easier for the older folks down here, but to have your man drive up to your house and pick you up is considered a big win!
But, according to the ladies, the men down here have only two things on their minds: a purse and a nurse.
The “purse” is, of course, the money. The guys want a lady who has cash and can pick up the tab.
And the “nurse” is someone to care for us when we can’t do it ourselves.
It’s all about money and a caregiver…
Well, it seems we can’t do anything right. Even in our waning days, we still rub the opposite sex the wrong way!
Women feel like they have to put up with our nonsense just to get a little companionship and have someone to talk to.
Men and women: We really are from different planets.
