I think when you hit the 5th year of any of your personal decades you suddenly realize how young you still are so at 45 you feel younger than you did when you where 40 and the same for 55 and 65. Like Dylan said "I was so much older than,I'm younger than that now".

I always feel younger during the even numbered age- years for some reason.

I feel well older than i did last year, think it was just realising i'm half way to 90 that did it. Was really enjoying my 40s up to then and not feeling old at all and even looking forward to my 50s and 60s.

I guess I qualify as a older man as far as these POF forums go. Here is one of my main expectations.... I expect to wake up to a new day tomorrow. Although I do this knowing it could be my last.

I expect, if I get to see the next day, that it would be better than all of my previous days spent on this planet. At least this is my hope and something I strive for.I don't always meet my goal but most times at least making an effort helps.

And certainly, these are just a couple of thoughts on the topic I have thought of before and am expressing now.

Older men's expactations


Not much different than when in our 20's. However, in our 50's and 60's most of us realize that a "few" extra pounds/kilograms, silver hair and a few wrinkles will be par for the course. I'm sure these modified variations because of time on men are noticed by women.

This isn't true for all older men. If he's not a couch potato, and takes good care of his health by getting regular exercise, he's never going to lose his desire for female companionship.


Don't bet the farm on that one. I lost my desire for women when they got so difficult to deal with. Go be bossy with someone else, I want no part of it.

"Last I checked, I'm not a two headed ogre, nor do I live under a bridge like a troll. I also wasn't put on this earth to beg for dates." excerpt from a older man's profile- who refuses to send inquiry-interest letters- but women apparently: two headed ogres, trolls!! this really rolled perception deep fried with expectations!! lol very dangerous to ones health!!

Nah, they're told they shouldn't have them or expect much of anything. Advertising and marketing prefer the millennials and ignore the middle-band of women who have the spending power and demand better products and services. Yet, the cheapskates want them to expect less at a premier cost.

Why shouldn't they get to demand better men, too?


If that is the case, GOING DUTCH IS OUTLAWED!


It's a futile exercise in equalizing the sexes The cheapskate always benefits.

Mgtows stab themselves in the feet in the pursuit of independence from being responsible for the choices that got them to where they are. It has fuq-all to do with women. I'm not saying this is you, but your words seem to align with theirs.

Hahahahaha!
Sorry, this is funny to me. You haven't found one woman willing to deal with you and you
think that's their fault?

All the bossy wimmns come to your farm.

I've personally never met a healthy, straight man over 60 who's lost interest in women. If you've lost desire for female companionship, then I propose that there could be something going on with you that you're unaware of. You might want to get checked out by both medical and mental health professionals.

One thing I want to know from all of these men who claim to have “lost my desire for women” –

Do you still have sexual desires? Do you still masturbate, and think about, fantasize about, watch videos of attractive women while …. ?

If the answer to the above is “yes”, then you have NOT lost your desire for women. You have just become unwilling to pay the price to obtain what you want, what you desire.

I have this in my profile:


- The price of anything is the amount of life you're willing to exchange for it.

I didn’t think that one up, I stole it from the profile of another forum regular, with her permission.

We all get tired of the chase, from time to time. Take a break, do other things, when you come back in a month or two or three, your attitude will be much better, and your chances for success will be much better. Trying to force yourself to do something that you’re not enjoying is not likely to have a successful conclusion.

I might? I'm not. I'm very aware of women's attitudes, and I don't like it. Women are NOT the end all in every man's life. I never let the little head overpower the big head. I never let sex control me. I learned, that women are false advertising. What you see, isn't what you'll get. I like my solo life, and it's going to stay that way.

Can the same be said if you reverse the genders-that any woman over 60 who doesn't desire male companionship has something mentally wrong with her?

Good observation. The malarkey served up by both sexes can make one fed up with the whole situation. Mental health professionals know that their's isn't an exact science. Some just insist on not going with a group think. The "Group" however, could never strike out of their own, and explore new horizons. They are too immersed in their own views to change.

>>girl watching never gets old. An ex of mine used to tease she didn't worry i'd meet someone at a car show, I was too busy looking at the candy tangerine streamline babies to notice the women. But that wasn't entirely true :)

Henry is correct, we lose our interest in doing all the work we used to do when we were of procreating age. Biology used to push us, now we just enjoy the asthetics.
