Gay male mid-life crisis : is there such a thing?
We hear about the male Mid Life Crisis all the time. They mean het guys, who start buying 'hogs' and sports cars and maybe try and earring or purchase a new leather jacket. Or maybe they fall 'in love' with their 25 year old secretary or make a fool of themselves leaving their wife and kids for a dental hygienist with big boobage.
What typifies the GAY mid life crisis?

Of course. It is worse for gay men. Gay men are obsessed with how they look, once they realize they are no longer a hot young thing and they are the old guy in the gay bar, you have these attempts to hang on to youth.
Hitting the gym, ridiculous hair styles, dressing inappropriate for their age. The refusal to grow up.

R3, there's nothing wrong with some exercise and a stylish haircut. Some people, honestly.

Is there anything wrong with a straight guy wanting to buy a motorcycle or sports car R4?
I'm just saying. Those are the things gay men tend to start doing when they are approaching middle age.
They are both attempts to show they still have status as a man and sexual partner. Straight men tend to do it through possessions, gay men tend to do it by trying to increase their physical appeal.

lol..R4, R3 might be talking about me. Hitting 40 next year and I have started some of those things. I wonder if I am on course to my crisis :). Was never a "hot young thing", but all that hair fall has sort of pushed me over the edge slightly.

No, it's when you have pride within yourself. Who doesn't want to look good when they hit middle age?

Now I'm older myself, but we used to call older gym bunnies at the bars Mumras. Like from the Thundercats. As in, a withered old mummy that gets all buff but flash it a reflection of its face and it goes fleeing back to its sarcophagus. Huge muscles don't make up for being old enough to be a guy's father, at least in my crowd it didn't.

You're obviously in the midst on one, OP.

Some men go through life intending to try new things. As they age, they realize they haven't, and decide it's not too late to try. Nothing wrong with that. No Guts, No Glory.

See Jessica Simpson's dad?

My partner is right on schedule although I think that we are both past middle age. We are both 55. He bought me a leather coat for Christmas.

Joe Simpson has shirt buttoned down to waist as man sits on his lap
Jessica Simpson's dad is gay I think.
The former minister was sprawled out on a couch as a man wearing the United States flag lounged on top of his lap at a party in Beverly Hills on Tuesday.

Good point R19.
So maybe the gay midlife crisis more like a frau midlife crisis and the butch lez midlife crisis is more like the straight schlub crisis

I have two friends, both gay and in their mid 40s, who have recently gotten more tattoos. They both already had tattoos but decided to add to them. They both have really nice bodies (one's a bodybuilder) and I guess they figured that it's now or never.

Any recommendations for a motion picture to take a 22-year-old to?
Yes there is.
This gentleman asked Datalounge what motion picture he should take his 22 year old trick to.
We have our first date tomorrow night. I'm a bit older, so I need some help finding out what a 22-year-old would want to see.
