The real problem men over 50 have is that they're stuck in the past. They didn't get the memo that women have improved their earning potential and self-esteem in the last 40 years , which means that women today have realized they don't have to suck up to men like women had to do in the 1980's, 1990's, etc. Those days are gone, and all your pining for them won't bring them back. Up your game, man. When women had to learn new skills to succeed in the workplace, we did it. Men now have to learn new skills (i.e., don't mansplain to me, don't expect me to be more interested in your stuff than you are in mine, just be funnier & nicer, k?) Women's stock has risen. Get used to paying this higher price.
