Older women and Twilight

Recommended Posts

So at work today I learned that one of my coworkers, a 42 year old woman, took a vacation day. Upon further investigation (waiting 5 seconds while her neighbor told me where she was) I learned that she was out of work so she could go watch the new Twilight movie at the Epicenter in Charlotte.

My question is... is this weird? I really found it to be almost disturbing.

I think it's a bit silly myself, but people like what they like.

That same lady might think it weird when we took off from work to go see grown men practicing together, as I'm sure will be the case when training camp rolls around.

One of my wife's friends is in a "group"... something like "Twilight Moms" or some such... they went to the midnight showing last night... most of these women also do not have kids to take to see it... they're all in their early 30's with really young kids.

most of the women on my facebook page have albums of going to see it last night. They took pics outside wearing their Twilight shirts buying tix, pics of them getting their stub, pics of them finding a seat while gawking at all the other soccer moms wearing their Twilight shirts and stuff. It's insane.

I guess women are more into romance than men, even as they get older. I admittedly know very little about Twilight, but it seems to be a "teen love fest". I just figured older people grew out of that. But I know some older people who like Harry Potter. I guess it's the same.

That's the thing. As women become bored with married life (or bored with pursuing the married life), I think they long for the lust and romance of their youth.

I think that's why Twilight is a hit with women of all ages. It appeals predominantly to young women, but also to women who want to remember what that youthful love was like. Vampires just so happen to be the vehicle Meyer uses to deliver her romance. You're kidding yourself if you think these women are into vampires.

You are right. I guess it's not as creepy as I originally thought. And yea I figured it definitely wasn't the vampire thing that had them hooked.

Maybe I'll read it next. :leaving:
