#AskPatti: Valentine’s Day gifts & bouncing back from sex too soon

Ask Patti Stanger
Hello, hello! Happy almost Valentine’s Day. Guys, I just came back from shopping and I swear it felt like December 24th at the mall.

Why is your age important? Nobody really thinks they look their age anyway. Here’s the thing… I look good for my age, but it doesn’t matter if people think I look much younger. All that matters is I look good, and I’m in great shape for a man of my age. That’s the mindset you need. You can’t turn back time.
