I’m barely into my forties but I will say that it does feel a little bit different than the last decade.
A little calmer and maybe not as hectic as my 30s.
You also start to feel the aches and pains more in this fourth decade and the hangovers…don’t get me started.
Let’s take a look at some funny tweets about being in your forties.
1. Get ready for it.
In your 20s, you wear no makeup, in your 30s you wear some, in your 40s you paint on your face. What happens in 50s? Spackle?

2. Nothing to be ashamed of.
I’ve now entered the floral tunic portion of my forties. Your thoughts and prayers would be appreciated during this loud time.

3. Oh yeah!
Welcome to your 40s. A new cordless vacuum will excite you now.

5. Sounds like a hoot.
in my 20s: hiking, painting
in my 30s: board games, travel
in my 40s: singing the wrong numbers in the lyrics to "Seasons of Love" from Rent to infuriate my daughter

6. I’ve had enough of people.
Your 20s are for partying with people, your 30s are for actually getting to know them and your 40s are for trying to avoid them altogether

7. My back hurts…
Your 20s: I will strive for goodness and peace in this troubled world.
Your 40s: Every single chair is terrible.

8. It has to be exact.
Your teens: I’ll just sleep on the floor.
Your 20s: I’ll just sleep on the futon.
Your 30s: I’ll just sleep on the couch.
Your 40s: Is this tempurpedic? I can only sleep on tempurpedic. Preferably sleep number 37.

9. This is hot!
Being in your 40s means date night includes standing in line at Walgreens for your annual flu shot.

10. Totally over it.
Me in my 20s: I'm not ready to have kids yet.
Me in my 40s: I wish I had my kids when I was a teenager.

11. I told you!
Hangovers in your 20s: I’d better drink a Bloody Mary.
Hangovers in your 30s: I’d better sleep in.
Hangovers in your 40s: I’d better make funeral arrangements.

12. There you have it.
The best thing about dating in your 40s:
Not one fucking thing.
