    ... they want sex all the time.

    I need at least 48 hours notice to get the engines revved up, and the request should preferably be in writing.

    I'm going back to bed.

    Well if younger means under 21, then I would say a lot of them like rap music. Most of it I cannot listen to.

    I also find that really young guys can be pretty self-absorbed, I was at that age. It is due to a lack of maturity and not knowing where your life is going. You have a tendency to think that anything to do with you is the most important thing in the world, and can't understand why others don't feel the same way.

    The sex all the time part is not restricted to ones age, there are guys in their 30's and 40's that are the same way!

    They are emotional flakes and their television taste is no better than their music taste. MTV Pimp My Ride yuck! As far as sex goes, I'm the one who is always ready to go, but he is the one who can go and go and go, and its downright embarrassing to say... baby, it just aint hapening again. icon_redface.gif

    You see the trouble with sad old guys is they themselves were the "young" generation of the babyboomers who adopted a too serious for fun attitude and no one can stand being around listening to them complaining about everything for more than 5 mins


    Now they're just all alone wandering round Abercrombie and Fitch with their hands over their ears looking for the shotguns to off themselves.

    For many (not all) of them, it's their sense of absolute certainty in their beliefs. I find it hard to talk to young guys about insecurities or ambiguity or uncertainty. You bust open your heart and they respond with some cliche like "You shouldn't care what people think" or "You have to live for what's important to you," without understanding that, first, I understand this a lot better than they do, and second, part of my understanding is an awareness that you can't maintain meaningful work or personal relationships without caring what other people think, and third, that they themselves care more about what people think than they themselves even realize yet.

    (The "You shouldn't care what other people think" is just an example." Kids have a multitude of untested Oprah-style slogans that they're just beginning to explore).

    This isn't a slam against kids. It's a process we have to go through. Age isn't just a number: Maturity comes from applying reflection to experience, and that takes time.

    Of course, that's what makes these kids irresistible, too. Spending an evening with a happy, clear-eyed, confident puppy can be a delight. Even if you know he's going to whole-heartedly try on three or four new life philosophies in the next couple years.

    The trouble with younger guys is...that they're guys. Humans. And thus fallible, just like everyone else.

    There is a lot to be said for youthful enthusiasm.

    True but someone had to jump in and defend the young population from all these stereotypes. Rap music and reality TV are nothing more than oxymorons



    I may be an idiot but at least I'll more than likely grow out of it icon_lol.gif

    Well, good luck with that.

    Some of you are really harsh! Why reinstate stigma and possibly introduce new ones on young gays?

    And some of you, EWW.. Maybe most the "young guys" you know, do behave in such a way. But that is a result of you never getting the chance to know those who behave and think otherwise, because they are the ones that know better than to dedicate time towards negative, narrow minded men with foul inner-beauty such as yourself.

    Thank you for informing us.

    not to mention, fall in and out of love every 15 minutes, forgetting that there is another person who is the other "half" of that love diad.

    I agree that age and maturity don't necessarily proceed at the same pace. I know 30 and 40 year olds that are still as mature as an 18 y.o., and I know 20-somethings that have gotten past most or all of the mercurial swings.

    Rap music and Reality TV may be oxymorons, but they are popular oxymorons!

    Touchy, touchy not to mention an uncalled for put down of old men! I have nothing against young guys, I just would not want to date one or sleep with one. Any time I say hello to young gay guys either on the internet or at a gay organization, many think "this guy is a pervert trying to get into my pants". Ah nice try, but the thought of me having sex with a guy young enough to be my son is a big turn off.

    As for being an old man, well not really, but then again I like old men unlike most people in Western society. I find them interesting to talk to. There is something about having a lot of life experiences that makes a conversation much more engaging.

    Sad old guys? Talking about a stereotype. I don't think I have ever been happier. I find it is the younger guys on this website that seem so depressed! And I have only been to A&F once in my life thank heavens.

    Sad as in pathetic rather than depressed. In a sort of modern day "Hey you kids gets off my lawn" type of mentality


    Although for the Prozac generation I do know an awful lot of depressed peopleicon_confused.gif

    Thanks, that clarifies things. What you describe is what I call an "anal-retentive" personality. Scary thing is I have met some young people that have this personality trait!
