    I find myself feeling somewhat detached from life around me, yet anxious about planning for my future financially. Maybe it's just because I turned 38.

    Sorry to hear icon_sad.gif.

    Let us know when the creative fun side of that kicks in (jeeps, motorcycles, ... blowing it all in vegas ... :winkicon_smile.gif and invite me to whatever adventures you'll be going on!

    Sorry again. I hate getting into phases like this. Not that I'm old enough to have a real mid-life crisis, but everyone who speaks of it makes it sound like a downer and I hate downers. I suppose it's the body's way of telling you to re-evaluate your life, but you'd think the body could do it in a seemingly less destructive fashion.

    The detachment could be a sign of Alzheimers. icon_wink.gif I'm so kidding man. The only thing I really want to say is... belated happy bday! In late April I'll be turning 34 and I'm pretty much feeling the same way. I think we may be growing up. UGH.. it was bound to happen sooner or later.

    My only panic-attack mid life crises came when I turned 30. Since then it's easy. I actually love being in my 40's. I finally feel grounded.

    If you were straight, I'd ask you if you're thinking of buying yourself a red corvette and sporting a comb-over. That is the true sign of a crises.

    The beauty of being my age is I turned 45 before there was even such a thing as mid-life crisis. But then I never did get my red Vette. I may be having a late-life crisis because I am seriously looking at a '71 Silver Shadow

    DAMN... I wish I could do that to all my clients, regardless of their age!!!
    And it has NOTHING to do with anything midlife.. I have clients who are 25 that invest 10% of their income. I'm glad to hear it Tim!! Congrats!

    NOW DO IT!!

    I was having that feeling too, after turning 38 this past fall. For the new year I decided to reconnect with my surroundings (that being folks in their 30s who do fun things in this wonderful city). I cut my hair and started dressing a little nicer. I sing out loud more, and dance fearlessly. I think my friends probably think this is my midlife crisis. Oh well. I don't feel nearly as foolish as I probably look, so that's a good thing I guess.

    Go with whatever you feel man. At this point who has time to worry about whether it is the proper thing to do at a certain age?

    I'm turning 38 in June, and I have to keep telling myself that it's not a race to the finish line...and that it's not over 'til it's over...lol. I do have a jeep though, does that count for somethin'?

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH....you poor babes....you havent a clue what the 40s have in store for you!!!! Enjoy your 30s....even 38 HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Oh lord, I hope we are all still on RJ then.

    You're not in your mid-life crisis. It'll come in your 40s. Mine lasted about 3 years. But since I was aware of a man's ontology thru the various decades I could sort of experience it with a detached perspective. I was glad when it was over...but I dont remember it much....the 50s have kicked the taste out of everything else! Oh to be 38 again...fat, dumb, and happy!

    I am 51, and I never had a midlife crisis. I don't plan on having one either. Why waste time fretting over your lost youth when you can watch Giada di Laurentiis? Time's a-wasting, gents.

    Life is terminal and we have way too many forum topics about getting old! Just live it while you can; it's certainly better than the alternative. I'm lovin' 45; best year yet.

    But I've never been fat... Does that mean that I'm not going to have a crisis?

    Age should have nothing to do with it. I had a nervous breakdown last month and my attitude changed towards a lot of things. I definitely do think it is a part of growing up. And it comes in intervols.

    Midlife crisis at 38? Does that mean you're going to live until you're, at least, 76?

    I plan on living until I'm atleast 100. I'm not even half way there. If I go before that, I hope that it is in a specacutlar way. Like my parachute not opening or a bungie cord breaking. I want to leave a stain!!!
