Dating Over 40: The Mom Job – It’s All The Rage

Have you ever heard of a Mom Job?  Well it’s not what you think.  It’s not oral sex that Mom performs on Dad.  It’s not part time work flexible for child care.  It’s a new way of marketing a plastic surgery package deal!  Breast Lift, Tummy Tuck and Liposuction.  Does anyone find this surprising or even shocking?

This article from the Atlanta Journal Constitution is well done ending with a discussion of how women shouldn’t be made to feel that childbirth destroys their sexy nature.  The author suggested a good bra, flattering clothing and a good workout should suffice.  Let’s be realistic – having a baby does change your body, but many women look just as good after as before. And some look better because they decide to make getting into shape a priority.

Either way – who says that only the most firm and fit are sexy?  There are plenty of women who may have extra pounds and extra curves who still emit very sexy vibes. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and beauty is much more about how you feel about yourself then how you look.  Strong self-esteem is very hot.  If you feel sexy, chances are very high that you are sexy.

OK, many men on or other sites may insist they want perfection.  That’s fine – we all have requirements.  And when those requirements are unrealistic regarding body type or age or whatever – many of those men are, shall we say…still lonely. ( Of course this can be sadly true of women’s demanding requirements too.)

The point is not to succumb to some new societal pressure about being a sexy Mom, just because that’s what the media barrages us with.  You DO NOT need the body of a 20 year old to stay in love or find new love. 

Amen to that.
