#102: Only One Pair of Glasses At A Time, Please

This tip comes from my pal Amy Edelman, author of Manless in Montclair, a wonderful memoir novel about a widow in the suburbs in search of a new husband. Amy’s advice: Don’t wear more than one pair of glasses at a time. The young among you may say, Duh! But I sense you over-45s out […]

#93: Stop Covering Up Your Underwear!

Confused about whether you’re old or not? Here’s a little quiz to help you find out.

#16: Don’t Live In Greenwich Village

It used to be, in New York, that young people lived in the Village, and old people lived in Queens. Young people lived on the Upper West Side, and old people lived on the Lower East Side. All that’s changed around now. Why? Money, honey. Young people want to live where it’s cool, but they […]

#15: Don’t Be Named Bob or Pat

Or Pam or, God forbid, Dick. There’s a whole generation of names last popular in the 40s and 50s — Karen and Donald, Barbara and Leonard — that you’ve got to avoid if you don’t want to seem old. Of course, you didn’t choose your own name and you’re pretty much stuck with it unless […]
