Life begins at 40 for womenJuly 21st, 2008 - 6:36 pm ICT by ANI
London, July 21 (ANI): If you thought that fun in a womens life is limited only to their 20s, then you might need to think again for a new survey has shown that the generation of females reaching their late 40s is revelling in a new-found youth.
Inspired with the Sex And The City sisterhood, more than 50 percent of women in their mid-40s go clubbing regularly.
The survey showed that another 71 per cent have ditched dowdy coffee mornings for cocktails with the girls.
This independent breed of women, dubbed Generation Happy, feel overwhelmingly comfortable in themselves and are using their financial independence to the fullest, unlike when they were younger and more insecure.
As well as socialising with friends in bars and clubs, a Generation H woman has no qualms about taking control of her love life.
Over 50 percent women admitted to going speed-dating to meet potential partners.
Despite the growing popularity of cosmetic surgery, 45 per cent reported being totally happy with their appearance.
Only three per cent try to follow celebrities lives, while more than half are happy to behave independently, free of any influence.
According to the survey, generation H has also abandoned the image of doting grandparents, living only to take care of their kids and grandchildren.
Almost 50 percent women surveyed said that they believed this was the time to focus on themselves rather than their family, with only one per cent agreeing that they should be looking after their men.
