Thanks Cathi. I have a friend who is close to my age who gets Botox regularly. Her face is unlined. Yes. And it also looks puffy, unnatural, her mouth moves in weird ways, and she looks like a Kewpie doll. Her hands are a dead giveaway (of course they are). I am sorry that she is so intensely uncomfortable with her aging process that her treasure is spent on this kind of thing. That’s her choice, but I also note that she has a very hard time finding male company. She has an underlying anger that informs everything she does. Simple truth for me, and that’s all I can speak to, is that if she were joyful, free and released from this prison of age terror, she might have an easier time attracting like minded men. I don’t know that, but it probably has some merit.
