My 2 pence: Age... is it really just a number?



Age is always the topic when it comes to dealing with dudes. In my experience, the younger heads just starting out are in it for the excitement, the early 20 somethings are looking for someone most consistent yet mix and blend this with random encounters and the older folk are either hell bent on settling down, to the point they throw material ploys into the equation in order to keep their trophy man content or they over compensate in trying to remain relevant by trying to keep up with the youngers, friends with folk 6-7 years their junior and lowering the intellectual benchmarking instead of raising to have people aim to meet mentally at their level.

The general view I get talking to gay folk is this: younger guys expects guys 24+ to be driving with their own yard and a decent job. Older guys expect to find that younger guy that defies all odds to be the one to risk it all... yet it seldom works out the way it needs to.

My thoughts on this? Don't let past experiences or expectations mean that you are preventing yourself from what could be a good thing. People letting you down in the past should not mean that you take it out on those who could form your future. And I'll say it again. People letting you down in the past should not mean that you take it out on those who could form your future. Heed it.
