: : Aging Gracefully...someone told me it was meant to men, however, I find that to be untrue...i believe the phrase "aging gracefully" is for women...
: : what do you think?

: It can be applied to men or women; there's nothing gender-specific about it at all. We should all be so lucky.

I think of it as a phrase that is most often applied to women. Maybe because aging is seen as more of a problem for us.
