Over the years, I've seen pictures or interviews on TV with retired, well known pro athletes. Some of them are still in great shape and haven't physically aged much, and some, who are in the same age range, look ancient and are all crippled up. It's more of a crap shoot than anything else. I know a woman who is in her late 60's who has been a chain smoker since forever, who is still active and appears to be in good shape and health.

Beyond common sensible eating well and exercising, I could not care less about aging, It happens to all of us. Death is the great equalizer. We live in a culture where death is an exercise in denial. We all grow old and die. I have given up dating and trying to be "cute, attractive and youthful" to men..they just have to accept me for what I am...and I still think I have alot of positive traits left. If they want someone 20, then I'll be alone for the rest of my life. End of discussion. Plenty of other things to occupy one's time and money with! The last thing I am concerned about is trying to impress men. Them there days are over.

Staying away from more and more people of today's world. I personally, don't find them or their actions very appealing, and it's much more positive for me, to just keep them away or, just laugh at them. You may find this a little a dismissive but, my doctor has seen the positive results of my thoughts, and I am feeling much better everyday that I keep thinking and acting this way.

Do you think being on the world's second most popular dating site and one of the most popular forums may be causing cognitive dissonance?


It would, if I actually believed every person in this world are all like the ones here. There is the odd "good" person here, usually hiding though, surfacing the odd time with posts and comments in forums. My thoughts come from the real world and the actions of those involved in it.

I don't like the way a "good" life is now defined in the real world. The drive to that "good" life that most are aiming for, seems to end when going over a cliff.



And I thought I was the only person in BC with this outlook on life and people. There is hope after all. :D


I like your "Watts" quote hound!!!

Ah yes, the life of a recluse. I want that house near either the coast or a mountain surrounded by lush forest. Someplace that I won't see neighbors or have to put up with people other than my closest friends. The sound of the ocean or a rushing river, the wind through the trees, peace and relaxation. I wish I could just lose this deeply ingrained notion that I need to have a female life partner (have felt this way since being a little boy); I am getting closer.

I find that photoshopping my pics helps to slow the aging process.

some will look AGED/OLDER.


Probably because they ARE.
Pof isn't the best data base to use for age-related examples.
Lots of people lying about their age here.

It's so much more in our heads than in anyone else's..my daughter told me off the other for talking about age so much. I volunteer with young people in their 20s and she said that I constantly referred to how old I was. She said they don't notice it until I start harping on...
She's right. It's only a problem if you think it is. Forget how ''old'' you are. My aunt, in her 90s, still says I'm a baby.

Dating far younger women really helps slow the aging process. A man is the age of a woman he feels.

Nothing wrong with the 'drink responsibly' disclaimer, IMO. There's a big difference in having a couple of drinks on occasion and binge drinking to excess.... Moderation, a common sense notion to help manage aging.

Nothing wrong with that advice and practise at all! As a disclaimer, though it IS as ridiculous as "know your limit play within it" Based on my experience serving drinkers for many years and doing the same for quite a while at a race track, I can tell you that those who are addicts and may even know their limit ( many don't) they are hard wired to ignore their limits, in a big way, while drinking and/or gambling. It's the nature of the beast. The people who market heavily and make money from booze and gambling do much better when addicts do as they please, consumption wise.

The disclaimer is not advice, especially for those who need it most and are most unlikely to take it, it's a disclaimer to avoid liability and to look like they care. For quite some time now, people feel free to sue over everything! Including bars, liquor stores and manufacturers for things that happen badly when they chose to over consume.

I don't do anything to manage/slow my aging, I'm not trying to look or act some chronological age other than what I am. Never did understand that profile cliche 'I look younger than I am.' What does that even mean? I'm 52, so I look 52. Who says what 52 should look like other than what I do actually look?


Yeah, but if you put yourself and 99 other 52 year old women in a room together, some are going to look better
than you and some are going to look worse. Most people don't want to be in the "worse" group at any age. People
age differently, could be lifestyle, could be genetics. I've not gone crazy to slow down my aging process (other than
staying away from negative people and life sucking vampires), but I know I look better than some 60 year olds and
not as good as others. I'd be cruising down the river of denial if I thought anything else.

My point, again, since so many (not picking on brown here) seem to miss it, is that I am NOT in denial. I look my age. My age is 52. The people who are in denial are the 52 yr olds who THINK they look younger than 52 instead of acknowledging that they too contribute to the definition of what 52 looks like.


The only reason we know you are 52 is because you told us. If no one told anyone how old
they were and we had to guess...lots of people would be suspected of being older or younger than the age they
actually were. You are right, 52 can look like a lot of things, but sometimes 52 looks like a 45 year old and
sometimes they look 60. No one is saying all the different 52 year olds do not contribute to what a 52 year old
should look like, but people do look younger or older at times.

What's so wrong about saying...hey...she looks really young for a 52 year old, rather than say...she's 52...that's
what she's supposed to look like even though she looks a lot younger than that woman who is 45. I get the denial thing.
I get that there are a lot of people who think they look younger than they are. But I also know, there ARE people who
look younger than they are.

And who cares if someone THINKS they look younger than their age instead of acknowledging that they too
contribute to the definition of what their age looks like? How does that thinking affect me, you or the other
hotties on this page?

OT...I eat a lot of gummi bears. I think that's why I've never had a tooth cavity. The bears help to keep em clean...
also good for cleaning lint out of belly buttons.

I don't think we are supposed to have freedom to make personal choices nor do I see why you think that? Maybe back in the caveman days that might have been true.


Your kidding ...right ?
You must think nazi germany is etopia ..! No free will, ..is not evolving ... its regression , Back to your cave man


The bottom line is it is better for the Government and society if most people are reasonably healthy.


I could care less about goverment , because you cannot have goverment without corruption and power,... they are inseparable , Society has existed for centuries before me and will continue on after me
I have only one life and what's best for goverment and society does NOT override my personal pursuit of happiness

I'm not really trying to do anything, because I think I look pretty good for my age. And my age is my age, so why try to deny or hide it? Ok, I may dye my hair before it gets too gray, but at the rate it's going, I'll be 60 before I'll even have to think about it. Plus, I prefer to die sooner rather than later, or at least before the money runs out. ;)
