Lucy the trouble with dating an older woman

1) My 54-year-old male client who had electric chemistry with a woman on a first date.After an hour of making out with her, he was fully smitten.Called her the next day, where she confessed that she wasn’t 54 herself.When asked how old she was, she said “Let’s just say I’m in my sixties”.Too bad we didn’t have a full hour to really get in there.I had about three anecdotes about clients lying about their age that I didn’t get a chance to use.

2) My 71-year-old female client who is on a crew team but has never confessed her age, because she doesn’t want to feel “different” than everyone else.Here at Five Thirty Eight, we spend a lot of time thinking about how to predict stuff.The science of prediction is pretty hard to get right consistently.But in keeping with the philosophy of exploring other schools of predictive thought, I decided to go to one of the classic sources of predictions — a tarot card reader — to find out what she had to say about the future, and how those predictions would stack up against rigorous statistical analysis.First, let me come clean: Getting your tarot cards read is really, really fun.
