Your special gay friend…I am delighted to be joining Ceri and her team as the resident Confidence Coach and Motivator. There is something very warm and inspiring about the Fab After Fifty community and I feel honoured to be part of it, even though I have a few years to go before I reach the best age of all.
Over the coming weeks I will be answering all your questions, sharing with you my perspectives on why I believe women over fifty have it all to play for, but most of all being a friend that you will be able to have a cosy chat with through this wonderful website. Do email in your lifestyle questions and if I don’t know the answer I will find someone that does.
With all this in mind I think it leads my nicely into my first piece. I just adore my fifty plus girlfriends; we have so much fun be it sharing a quality bottle of wine chatting about men, shopping together or discussing the latest anti ageing products. They are forever telling me that all women over fifty should have a special gay friend so I decide to ask some of them for their comments. Here’s what they had to say:-
“There is just no threat. I feel safe and Mike (the husband) knows that there won’t be any naughty business going on. I guess it’s also that I can tell you my secrets knowing you won’t judge me”.
Jane 56 – Business Owner
“I feel so comfortable and confident having you as my gay best friend. Nothing ever shocks you and you never judge the fact that I adore younger men. So many people would but you don’t”
Kate 53 – P.A
“With you Steve I laugh. The funny thing is that I can have a heavy problem but when I talk to you I end up laughing about it! Everyone else takes it far too seriously”
Marion 50 – Retail Manager
“We have men in common! And as you know I am not very good at holding down a relationship. I just love the safety of our chats snuggled on the sofa talking about my ups and downs. It’s special and I know I’d never get that with a straight man or even one of my female friends. You’re my rock”
Trish 62 – Party girl!
