{Aging Well} 100% Fabulous?

What percentage of FOFs would say “no” to dinner with Kim Kardashian?

Not surprisingly, 87% would pass.

UnitedHealthcare conducted its 8th annual survey about developing healthy, long lives and polled FOFs on our secrets, challenges, and beliefs. While nearly all FOFs agree that physical health is the hardest thing to maintain as we age, are we basically content with our lives? The survey covers anything and everything from health to pop culture. What did they ask us and how did we answer?

Guess what percentage of FOFs are content with our lives and wouldn’t have done a thing differently when we were younger?



Guess what percentage of FOFs think it’s important to maintain one’s sex life for healthy aging?



Guess what percentage of FOFs think our partner should be of the same faith?



Guess what percentage of FOFs think our society is disintegrating in terms of how we treat one another?



QUESTION: Are you in the majority? Weigh in.

    Looks like I’m in the majority, too. I know regrets are wasted energy, but, if I had to do it all over again, I would’ve gone to college right out of high school as my parents wanted, and become either a teacher or a nurse. I would’ve continued my education until I had a doctorate. I would’ve stayed long enough with one company to have a pension. The only downfall: Chances are I wouldn’t have met my husband, and that would have been a shame because we’re soul mates, and so good together. Instead, after many years in Corporate America, I chose to attend college to earn a degree and create a better life for myself. I didn’t realize I would graduate into the worst economy since the great depression, and that I would be burdened with loans and very little means with which to pay them. I am yet on a trek for a full-time position in my field. I am now the proud bearer of a B.F.A. from university and companies are reluctant to hire me, or anyone over 25.

    I was definitely in the majority for each question. I feel better knowing I’m not the only one who would’ve done some things differently! 🙂 I don’t think anyone is “judging” Miss Kardashian, per se. I believe it’s a matter of personal preference. Most of us would have nothing in common with someone like her, predicated upon the spectacle she makes of herself in the media and nothing more.

  3. Constance says:

    Personally, I don’t desire to have dinner with Kim, BUT… who are we to judge her for her actions? Her life (lifestyle) will be judged by the ONE. And ONLY HE will have the last word, or laugh. As stated before, PEOPLE are the ones who have made her as popular as she is buying into what she does, who she does and where she does it. Ridiculous! Don’t like it, don’t watch it. Simple. I surely don’t. It’s not worth the space nor time to keep giving people you oppose their 15+ minutes of fame. Just my opinion.

  4. E.C. says:

    I would definately have dinner with Kim K. She seems like a cool person to hang out with!

  5. Reba says:

    I don’t see a problem having dinner with Kim K. Who knows how she is 1-on-1, we could probably learn something from one another. I believe people are being short-sighted if they only choose to have conversations with people who hold the same views and values.

    I also think the question of being content with our lives, and not changing anything I did when younger should have been separated. I can be content where I am now, but still regret certain decisions I made in my youth.

  6. Christine Norman says:

    I agree with the majority responses. I would love to have dinner with Kim and learn some of her beauty secrets – even if I couldn’t afford any of them.

  7. jfscott1948 says:

    I would definitely pass on dinner with Kim Iardashian.

  8. Pamela Lloyd says:

    I’d pass on dinner with her. Her and my values totally differ..

  9. Michelle Robinson says:

    Why not have dinner with Kim K.. First of all if people did not watch the show they would not be as popular as they are. Second of all just because their family is not like other families does not mean they are abnormal.. I’m sure there are plenty of wanna B’s out there who act the same as they do. They make there money honestly and if people don’t agree with it.. THEN DON”T WATCH THEM ON TV OR READ THE SCANDAL MAGAZINES in line at the supermarket.

  10. Donna says:

    I’m in agreement with the majority. I would have zero interest in meeting with any of the Kardashian clan. They have no moral values, in my opinion, and are totally the opposite of my family and friends.

  11. Esther Bradley-DeTally says:

    Good question – Kim K… shallow, self-seeking behavior; don’t know the real person behind her;
    Love is love no matter what age to the second comment.
    I think society is coarsening, but I believe there is a new integrity on the horizon, and suggest think of the forces of light and darkness, they exacerbate as they grow more intense. There are forces of light out there, and the glimmer of the oneness of humanity is peeking, along with that, Be generous in prosperity, and thankful in adversity. Be worthy of the trust of thy neighbor, and look upon him with a bright and friendly face. Be a treasure to the poor, an admonisher to the rich, an answerer of the cry of the needy, a preserver of the sanctity of thy pledge. Be fair in thy judgment, and guarded in thy speech. Be unjust to no man, and show all meekness to all men. “Be as a lamp unto them that walk in darkness, a joy to the sorrowful, a sea for the thirsty, a haven for the distressed, an upholder and defender of the victim of oppression…” not pushing source, but there’s a definite source, go to my blogsite if need source and rest of quote.

    Why not have dinner with Ms. Kardashian. Thw whole family has done well for themselves.
    I detect a little jealousy in all off you…….

  13. abary52 says:

    Good survey and I fell in with the majority. I would not dine with Ms. Kardashian since she does not reflect my values whatsoever and our conversation would be quite shallow in my opinion. To be rich and famous is not what I aspire to at 61.

  14. TuKute says:

    I am also in the majority except for having dinner with Kim. I would LOVE to. Her family has gone against the normal standards of what and how to market and have exploded into a phenomenal empire. I could certainly use some tips.

  15. Jennifer says:

    I was in the Majority as well, I would definitely pass having dinner with someone so fake

  16. Anne Kight Lloyd says:

    I, too, was in the majority for each question. I was surprised to see that even 13% of FOFs would want to have dinner with Kim K. I am so over her, and her entire clan!

  17. jaki says:

    I think the first question about Ms Kardashian is an example of the last question…we don’t treat people well in our society, rich or poor. Why choose to put down anyone , surely the space hear is better used?

  18. Suzanne Fluhr (Just One Boomer) says:

    I was in the majority for each question — and emphatically so for passing on dinner with Kim Kardashian — or any Kardashian, for that matter.
