Okay since there seems to be a funny threads phenomenon in here...I thought this one would be fun as well...
So...only those in their 40'ish and below 60'ish are allowed in here....
It would be nice to read all the funny and maybe not so funny experiences of life to those that have acquired a "certain" maturity (*cough*) and are not considered "seniors" yet.
We all know that the popular opinion is that women are more beautiful when reaching the age of 40 and more sensual..(*cough*) personally I think it's all BS....and that men are at their sexual peak in their 40's...again gentlemen no offense but that's complete BS.
I'm curious to read your opinions and stories.
Let's have fun in here.

Well now, what fun. I am going to have to be in five forums at the same time. But since I am a woman I can do five things at one time. If it says keep out, I usually don't.
LOA, are we going to talk about a woman's view on men at this stage of life?
Besides I agree that women are alot more sensual and know what they want at this stage. Men don't. (see the joke I threw in the old fart's forum)
"Nature always wears the colors of the spirit." -
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.
"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."
I think I can pose this question here?????? Who do you think hit a "mid-life crisis" first???? Men or women??????? Do you know any man that has hit theirs yet????
]AN EXCERPT FROM A POEM THAT I WROTE ON 10/11/07
WE CAN'T CHANGE WHAT WE HAVE DONE.... BUT ONLY TAKE A LESSON FROM EACH EXPERIENCE AND MAKE THE MOST OF EACH MINUTE THAT WE HAVE LEFT AND TELL OURELVES THAT IT IS OK TO LIVE, LAUGH AND CRY..... PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE ALL WORK TOGETHER TO GIVE US WHAT WE CAN AND SHOULD EXPERIENCE AND WE NEED TO CHERISH ALL OF THE TIME THAT WE SPEND WITH OURSELVES AND OTHERS MAKING THE MOST OF THE SPECIAL MEMORIES THAT ARE OURS.. AND THE ONES THAT WE HAVE YET TO CREATE WITH THE PEOPLE THAT WE HAVEN'T MET!!!!![/SIZE]
Ok I will tell a little unknown fact about myself and Please do not look unfavorably at me. When I was 42 I met someone that was younger then me and I do mean YOUNGER. 17 years younger what a DUMB mistake that was ,took me 12 years to figure that one out. Too me at the end of our relationship it was more like I was rising another kid, been there done that kinda thing. Right now if I could find that special person,they would have to be 58 to 60 years young, over 6' ,have a job, same interests as me(not saying Oh yes to something I like to do and not really meaning it ) funny(I love to laugh and joke around) caring ,loving.
So ya I think I have had my Mid-Life Crisis
One more thing I still look at them male youngins' and think "Oh too be that young again" throw in a Kilt and I'd have a meltdown
Hopes are towers in the skies Dreams are wings taking flight
The Boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best Shadowy and vague. Who shall say where one ends and the other begins
I guess I agree with Jay!!! 44 and so much to do!!!!!!! I think my philosophy now comes from the fact that i have had to learn to live on my own. thank god for special people in my life!!!! It has become easier, now that I have found another special person....and someone to share the rest of my life with...HOPEFULLY!!!! It is harder to go through the 'rest of your life" and realize that you are going to be on your own!!!! I am thankful that I still have years to do what I want to do..... there are so many things that i want to do....... Even though we are getting to the "prime of our lives" we should enjoy them with someone special!!! MARTI
Over 50 less than 60 Still going Strong(for an old man). Still able to get it up Head off the pillow each Morning that is!!!!!!! What were you thinking Happy to hear you found Someone to share your Life with Marty Life is not meet to go thorugh alone Enjoy each other and grow old together.
If I may? As an "Old Fart" I can honestly say that being older has its advantages. Remember the story of the two bulls standing on a hill overlooking a pasture. The young on turns to the old one and says "Hey Pop, what say we run down there and get a couple of cows". The old one turns to look at the young bull and quite calmly says "No. Lets walk down and get them all".
Mid-Life crisis? Hmmm, let's think...Yeah, I had one about 4 years ago. Because if I can still bring a life into this world I'm not old..right?? Well, he is 3 1/2 years old and his name is Liam. He is the joy of my life and keeps me young...
Well done to open this thread! A own thread for people in his prime... Prudent enough for smiling about the follies of the younger generation - we know all these things even if it doesn't believe it - but harebrained enough that the "old farts" have a chance to grumble a littlebit about us...
Midlife crisis? Because I intend to reach my 120th birthday I haven't to be worry about such things as a midlife crisis...
No kidding! Sometime I think about me and my life. I think about the things I reached and all the thinks I'll maybe never (say never never) reach. There are moments I see that I am really in the "mature" generation and in the next moment I feel like a whippersnapper... But I have to say that I don't behave as such one (not just yet )

No idea, marti. A lot of women within our much-lauded age try to look out like eightteen and looking for boyfriends which have this age, a lot of men within our age slap-bang discover their preference for girls, they could be their daughters and try to impress them with juvenile affectation... and both act tragicomic. That's a real kind of midlife-crisis - Maybe they fear to miss something - or they can't deal with their own age. I think: My own age is the best age in my own life.
My mid-life crisis? Don't think I ever had one. I just turned 51, look 41 and feel like 21! (well maybe more like 23, but still...) And as for looking 41, thats not me saying it. I typically really surprise folks when I tell them my age. We tend to not look our age in my immediate family.
Oh and crazykiltedcelt - thats exactly what I was thinking...
