Older women and Twilight

Recommended Posts

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:

mine is mad that the eclipse book jumps from all the buildup of the sex straight to a sentence beginning with "the next morning", and leaves all the detail out.

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.

Might be my wife...she left the house with a group of her friends and got in line about 7pm for the midnight show and got home around 3 am. When I got home from work today, I asked her how the movie was and she said not good.....when I asked why she said it was not good for me in particular.

Then I started to get a heated lecture about how much such and such loves Bella and men will never understand and if they only had a clue things would be.......zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz! Woke up an hour later with King of Queens reruns on the TV and her no where to be found. I really try hard to be a good husband....I do.... but I can't compete with the Immortal Casinovas of the silver screen

Moral of the story: Never let your wife watch Twilight during that emotional time of the month........or ever.

its the beetles in 2010. except with everyone wanting to feel younger, its ok for older women to go nuts for that stuff.(i bet some watch the lost boys) i remember when only 14 year girls texted, now grown men with kids of their own send LOLs, eh...

i will say it would have been wrong for millions of older males to go insane over a 17 year girl, the jails would have been overfull. but the ladies did it and no one cared.

They are socially accepted pedophiles yet I am the one who gets chastised for noticing that Miley Cyrus is beginning to dress a bit more slutty as she nears legal age. Sheesh....
