Can you party hard like a 20yr old when you are over 30?Page 1 of 12    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12)
is it dignified when you are over 30 to run around partying every night?Do you still have a Peter Pan complex?.For me,,ill be 36 in a few weeks and i dont really party like i use to.Back when i was in my twenties,,i use to go out to the bars every chance i got.Maybe its just me,,,but once i turned 30,the bar scene just became unimportant,,like a "been there,done that"thing.All my friends my age started settling down,marriage,kids,careers,etc.Now im not gonna go out and all of a sudden get the whole marriage,kids deal,lol,etc
I remember when i turned 30,,i was almost passed out on the Campbell St street station lobby with with my buddy and our ladyfriends we picked up.GOD,,the hangover lasted for nearly 4 days!!!!!

I don't think it's dignified to run around partying all night when you're 20. At 30 it becomes pathetic.

Young people we know don't know better, but older you get you are expected to know better, are its frowned at. (Atleast I think so.)

Go Shells; I figure if I take care of mine & pay my own way, who's to say what's right or wrong about what I do in my free time (as long as it falls within the boundaries of the law)? If rockin out with your co** out is not your idea of a good time, that's fine, but why should folks bash others for it? Makes no sense...and the tylenol and water thing, it does work, you just have to remember to do that BEFORE bed...

I don't want to be the old creepy guy in the bar. Or the fixture at the local bar where the old people hang out. You know the bar queens and kings who are now in their 30's and 40's still trying to be 20. Same $hit every weekend. No thanks. Don't get me wrong, I was in college, and played in cover bands and partied in the bars with the best of them. But those days are gone and frankly I don't miss them.

Sure you can but it's usually for different reasons. Before, I used to go to clubs to hang out with single friends..flirt..get drunk..party..you know..

Now, I just go to dance with friends and could care less who else is there or have a couple of drinks with a girlfriend to chat. We don't talk about the guys there anymore and don't stumble out the door anymore. and the big thing? we usually leave by 1230 instead of 230!
haha

Does different "strokes for different strokes apply here"....I never was one even in my 20's to party all night, so why start now?....but I can say that I have pulled an "all nighter" at work in order to meet an important deadline and while in college I pulled an almost all nighter studying for important tax exam with the help of a pot of coffee....you gotta let common sense apply here......

Hahaha, you guys are only puppies compared to me lol. I'm 43, have young adult children but still can party as good as I was when 20. No! I'm not showing off!!! I just like hanging out with my friends and we like having good times together. We have drifted off the nightclub scene but that hasn't stopped us getting together and drinking at home instead. Why go somewhere when you have to find a way home afterwards? instead, stay at friends and catch a Taxi later or sleep over. You can sleep over in a bar, but be prepared to have your sorry ass kicked to the curb!!!
Guess if you're feeling old after getting married, having kids and you feel things just aren't how they used to be, then hey, nothing wrong with that either.

Not if turning 30 means: you've been there, did that and got the T-shirt.
But if turning 30 is just a number to you, then no.

Course, that's not what other people think.

OK, now for the low-down:

Started going out a lot, since I turned 37, and since I love to dance, I go to nightclubs.
Some people seem to be surprised.
But I'm not a show-off.
They find it even more surprising that I can dance.
They also find it surprising that I get hit on.

Don't know if I look ridiculous and I don't care, as long as everyone treats me with respect.
I approach younger women in the clubs I hang out in and a lot brush me off.
But out in the street, women seem happy to talk to me. In fact, the younger ones seem to like talking to me there.

I know I look about my age, but the way I look at it is: with me, what you see is only a little of what you get, because there is so much more to me.

Get to know me properly. Be my friend. Then reject me as a guy to party with, or date.

But if they are my age or older and they are in a pub and I talk to them, they seem to assume I will have sex with them, not a conversation.

The young women who are going out to meet men in clubs seem to be only into the younger men. They say they want a relationship, but the guys their age say they don't.

I meet women in the street.

The ones my age aren't too bothered. The younger ones who I talk to and seem sweet, are keen to flirt with me. The hot ones aren't too bothered.

But recently I've realised that the hot ones and the sweet ones are just as attractive. Just the hot ones are on display.

So I'm thinking that the hot ones are really just women who think that looks and sex are the way to a man's heart, and also seem only interested in the young men.

The sweet ones seem to think that relationships involve the heart first. They seem to not make an issue of the age difference.

But I am a sweet guy.

I know a 47-year old, who is hot. He's still partying. He meets women all the time. But he goes to meet women in more cosmopolitan areas.

Where I am is quite conventional.

So I think it is more where you party and who you are and not what the age of the people you party with.

Some places and some people really like you.
Some don't.

Find people who get on with you and it shouldn't matter.

it doesn't matter what age you are. all that matters is:
work like you don't need to money
love like you're never been hurt
and dance like no one's watching

Sure, if I got a week to recover.

Who am I kidding? I can't even drink anymore because of the Crohn's medication I'm on. Actually... that might increase my chances of partying hard (only sober). No dehydration or overdoing it to contend with! Hmmm...

I have to think about this some more.

I can also still party with the best of them, just have learned much better how to pace myself, and for some odd reason, I do not sleep as long as I use to when much younger.

My 18 year old son parties hard at times and will do athletic activities with me or me or me him, but he sleeps many hours longer than I do once he is in bed.......maybe he is still "growing up", and I am just maintaining what "is"????

It seems to be personality and style along with physical ability that keeps one very active in all areas even when older, and not the age itself that rules it......

Just my opinion.......

I don't party like I usta. (Wow! I never knew who I was going to wake up next to, and even my hair hurt!)

My drinking limit now is ONE beer a month (but I found a place where they serve TWO LITER beers -- (now, that's a BIG BEER!!!)

I expire early and I don't own jammies, but I sleep in the buff anyway. I dream dreams of times long ago in places (and circumstances) deserving to be remembered (or sometimes forgotten). I think THAT is the best part of dreams -- we can edit those videos to include, enhance, (or cut out) some parts -- the mind is a powerful thing!

My sleep is enhanced if I can wrap my arms around something warm and cuddly and nuzzle into the back of her neck (. . . and I am always seeking volunteers). Life seems somehow better and more fun that way.

Ah Rose........

You just need more practice and a variety of "Coors" to enjoy and find out which ones fit you the best........kind of like your men..... .....

OT.......As we age, I believe we party for a purpose, and not just to party for party sake......or to get drunk......

Life is to short not to party........all we truly need to do is decide what the party is all about and why.........then go for it with the "gusto" that many of us still can do......

Just my opinion......

30??? God that was awhile back. I was on the wagon at 30, and didn't party all that much at 20. I party more now at 44 than I ever did at 20. But I suspect I don't have the same responsibilities as many of my peers.

And for the record who cares? As long as you're not hurting anyone why not party at 50 or 60 even? Who am I to tell anyone how too live their lives?
