When I was seventeen I turned guys of every age and description for money. I really enjoyed it. I was actually into the sex(although letting on would've been VERY bad for business). I also worked at least one full time job as well. Got to see a lot of places I wouldn't have otherwise. Japan ,The Vineyard , NYC,Montreal, New Hope,Florida ,etc.(all before I was twenty-four). I feel like I would've been blowing those guys anyway,so it really worked out well for me! HA! The OP's trolling. Or else she's on the computer in the common room of his halfway house! HA!

Wow, this is one of the cuntiest threads I've ever read on Datalounge - and I've read a lot of cunty threads.

That said, it's totally justified, due to the op's blissfully ignorant post.

Let me just say... I've been a regular poster here from about 1997. That's about 15 or 16 years.

That also means that some rotten twink who thought he was just the fucking END ALL, BE ALL, IT QUEEN when he was 18, when I first started posting here --- is now 33 or 34.

Or in other words, 6 years shy of 40.

Time flies, motherfuckers. And it will catch up with all of you. And before you know it, your fresh faced, perky, 18 year old face and ass, will be a sagging, used up, dried up, begging for attention 40 year old ass.

And you'll eventually see what an asshole you are.

40 years old. That guy was born the first year my partner and I started living together. Sweet to think he's been alive during all our years together and that OP was born 17, 20, 23 years ago, however many. He could be our child. But, fortunately, he is not, good for all concerned. He wouldn't want two old fags as fathers and we wouldn't want a self-involved piece of shit who'd treat people like that as a son.

You're absolutely right, R46. It's a strange dilemma.

The older guys are so superficial and ridiculous because they wouldn't dream of dating someone their own age. They'll settle for nothing less than someone 25 and younger.

And then you have the young guys, who I REPEATEDLY see on Craigslist, who are complaining that they can't find any "good" guys, who aren't just about sex and hooking up. And that is immediately followed up with "no fems, no fats, no oldies."

Waaaah waaah.. why can't I find a real boyfriend????

Shall I tell you? It's because you're all a bunch of stupid, superficial motherfuckers who are getting exactly what you deserve.

by Anonymousreply 4803/03/2013

I've also noticed that "no fats, no fems, no oldies" has become a regular meme on Craigslist.

And these people are searching for love on a gay message board, no less.

Oh, the irony. But they're probably too stupid to even realize how stupid they are.

Wrong, R58.

Trolling or not, R58 brought up a REAL issue. Most 18-25 year olds think they are invincible, and ageless, and perfect, and that they will never age, and that they will always be desired and desireable.

I remember once I was at the Pharr Road Library bar in Atlanta. I was in my early 20s.

This guy started talking to me. As we talked, I discovered that he was 30.

I didn't say anything, but I was thinking: "30? Why are you still hanging out at a bar? That's so sad."

It makes me laugh now to think about that because I am now well past 30.

R65, isn't it bizarre that Tig Notaro manages to get any thread with her name, deleted? She actually starts threads and when we don't bite and say nice things, she gets her law firm to have them deleted. Lavely and Singer has that kind of pull. It's astounding how she manages to get away with this. She now is making mad money off cancers that were cured in less than two months. She says it was all improvised and she just blurted it out to the audience. But the West Hollywood Patch told its readers to go that night because she would finally "break out and be a big star." What a piece of work!

by Anonymousreply 7303/03/2013

Does this bizarre obsession with age and hissing actually exist for anyone in real life?

I'm 62. I have friends straight and gay who range in age from 20 to 75. For example, last night I had a couple of drinks and dinner with a perspective boyfriend, age 64, and one of his former athletes, age 30-something. Three times a week I row with 60 other guys ages 20 to 80, presumably either gay or straight; we don't care as long as they can row.

While I was in my 20s I had friends, gay and straight, who were in their 20s, 40s, 50s and 60s. My oldest friend, David McCord, was a poet, then age 80. Each and everyone added depth to my life.

I feel truly sorry for anyone whose life might be hobbled by prejudices about age. I cannot see how encouraging such a prejudice enriches anyone's life.

The truth is, in day to day life, young people and older people live different lifestyles and seldom cross paths.

I am completely confused. As a 19 year old a 22 year old started flirting? How is this possible? He flirted for three years? And if he was a classmate, why was he the only one who'd be graduating from college soon? Wouldn't you graduate simultaneously?

And what college was this that did not require proper grammar?

It's uncomfortable for anyone to be hit on by someone he or she doesn't find attractive. Forcing yourself on someone else is bad form regardless of any age difference or lack there of. It's bad manners. Period.

Age really has nothing to do with it.

OP, what do you mean a 40 year old "tried" to talk to you? Was he suffering from a stroke or some sort of speech impediment? If you are referring to a situation where you were rude or aloof or dismissive to him, then you are a cunt who will have such a karmic payback. Did your mother not teach you manners? That being polite to people is the rule? If this is not a troll post, then you sound like a truly awful person.

The weekend I turned 40, I was hit on at a bar in Chicago by a 28-year old who wondered admiringly what it was like to be me.

by Anonymousreply 9003/03/2013

For some people, the age discrepancy matters, for others it doesn't. My first partner, whom I met when I was 22, was 35--and that age difference ultimately mattered, as he had more life experience and a few more long term relationships under his belt and it was my first (with a man): we broke up, then three years later got together again, and then broke up two years later (and then he died--true, but I also couldn't resist the DL favorite line). Age was not the only problem in the relationship, but the difference was more significant than I would have thought it would be (I remember when he told me he was 35, I didn't believe him at first, as that sounded so old). My current relationship, which is coming up on 18 years in October, has a 19 year difference--I was 38 when we met, he was 57. Even though it's a larger span, the difference mattered less, as we were both settled in careers, had experienced some major life events (deaths of parents, etc.). In both cases, the intellect and the personality were what attracted me to him (and I assume him to me, as I was never a twink in terms of looks)--and those have remained. But I understand those who prefer to couple with people in their own age range--I just don't think they need to be outraged when an older man (politely) shows interest, particularly if the younger nicely thanks him for the interest and simply says no thank you. There are younger men who prefer older men (and not simply for "daddy" reasons--neither of my older partners have played that role in our relationships), and it need not be pathological or creepy in either direction. But it is also incumbent upon older men not to be skeezy when approaching a younger man (or any man, it seems to me), to accept a rejection with good grace, and to consider whether he is being realistic about where he is most likely to find someone who would welcome his advances. I do think too many older men unrealistically assume that a large number of younger men will be interested in them, and consign themselves to unhappy middle- and old-ages. The heart wants what it wants, but it is also possible to open oneself up to more possibilities than the culture might guide us to.

by Anonymousreply 9103/03/2013

I am often entertained by people saying "age is only a number," then providing the specific numbers between which they consider someone date-worthy. Usually they do not themselves meet those qualifications.

by Anonymousreply 9203/04/2013

Men aren't worth a damn before age 40. Can't find their asses with both hands. Fuck everything up and think nothing is their fault. Younger guys should be appreciative that older men find them attractive. It won't last. Soon enough, they will BE those older men and wonder why there aren't any more guys they can reject! Honey, you are only the belle of the ball for a hot ten minutes. Be nice.

Saw you in locker room meat gazing. Stop. - m4m - 100 (locker room) Hey you! Yeah you, the one lingering while I change. The one picking the shower right next to mine. The one who has to wander around the locker room with your old balls dangling down to your knees for way too long. The eye contact I'm avoiding? The way I am not very polite? I'm trying to tell you I AM NOT INTERESTED. Maybe I'm married, maybe I'm straight, maybe you are kinda gross and old, but no matter the reason, I'm not interested. Please kindly move on. Try Tami's, the casual encounters section, or one of the many dating and casual hookup websites and apps. There are plenty of guys looking for a daddy to help them release. Go to where they are.
