    So, I popped into a gay bar in London's West End. Was leaving the premises absent-mindedly flicking through QX Magazine, when I was approached by a young man. "Are you looking for an escort?" he said. Hmmm. "No, thanks." I said.

    What is it they say?

    "The young try selling it, the middle-aged give it away for free, and the old try to buy it back."

    something like that

    Thanks, funny personal anecdote. I LOVE personal stories, post them here about myself all the time. Takes a confident man to share a little humor at his expense.

    But not so expensive in this case, I think. Come on, that's no so bad. The young man could have done that with another guy of almost any age, he merely needed the money.

    What *I* read is that he saw you as prosperous-looking enough to approach you, regardless of your age. He wouldn't waste his time with someone who looked poor and down on his luck, cause what he was looking for was money. Agreed?

    So relax, don't let this bother you. Good grief, at 44 I hadn't even come out yet, and the best years of my whole life were still ahead of me. NOW I'm way over the hill, but sure as fuck not at 44. In my later 40s and early 50s I didn't have to give away or buy anything back, I was beating them off me. You look fabulous; don't sell yourself short because of some escort boy.
