I currently have a boyfriend I hope to grow old with. It's not guaranteed but it's our plan. I'm worried that one day when I'm older I will stop being pretty and become an ugly old woman, and my boyfriend will no longer find me attractive.
Do you ever worry about growing ugly the older you get?

For me it's not a fear of being ugly so much as being feeble and having to rely on other people to help me all the time.
I work out and pay some attention to nutrition for largely that reason these days. I passed by a pull-bar one time a few years after marriage and not training and tried some pull-ups. I used to be a pull-up champion in my high school setting the record there, so I thought it'd come easy to me but years of slacking off caught up to me and I could barely do two of them. That was a wake-up call for me to start getting my act in gear. It wasn't so related to looks but realizing how out of shape and weak I had become.

My wife has aged over the ten years or so of being together. She has some grey hairs now and some new wrinkles around the eyes. She doesn't look quite as youthful as when we first met. She does work out so she hasn't gotten out of shape, but I can see the signs of aging. I'm not blind. But it's like I developed an image in my head of her smiling, laughing, the sound of her voice, her sense of humor, things like this -- and that image doesn't change in spite of her age, and I'm still so fond of it, and her. It's invulnerable to her aging, and instead adapts and grows with her.

No my family ages really well my parents still look young and so do all my aunts and uncles. Everyone looks younger than their age... Plus I take care of myself I don't smoke, I rarely drink, I workout and I try to stay out of the sun for the most part especially without sunscreen and I keep my skin moisturized.
