    Well I am 30 so I thought Id be perfect to start this thread, I d be like middle aged in the gay world. I have seen a lot of threads about young guys who outright just don't realize that they are aging by the minute and should appreciate guys who are older, because quite frankly one day with their attitude I don't think they will ever be as sexy as the hot mature men of RJ today. I have read many threads and young guys are terrible at how they refer to guys older then them on this site.

    Are young guys 18 to 29 realistic? - Do they think long-term? and that it will probably take them a few years to build the hottest body and by that time they will be not so young. Will their profile interests change? from -- only guys 18 to 29? to 30 and 69?.. and so on.

    Older guys? Were you like that when you were their age?

    Even when I was 18 -19. I could appreciate men of any age! Should we say that guys who prefer men around a certain age will also change as they age or will they turn into creeps!

    Thoughts!

    Being nice to and having respect for someone are two very different concepts in my opinion. I am nice to most everyone but I truly respect very few individuals. I think that it's absolutely silly to respect someone solely on the basis of age or station, but that's just my opinion.
    Now if the question was "Why are some young people such jerks?",
    I'd have to say, "Because they weren't raised in Minnesota."

    Age has nothing to do with it. I have met rude people of all ages. And I have met very nice people of all ages.

    Yes, they have underdeveloped brains until they turn 18.
    This is why they develop severe emotional problems if they accidentally see genitalia while they're still 17 years and 364 days of age.

    Wow, how ignorant can you get?

    "Young People! Why are they so disrespectful! ?" seems like a huge generalization to me, not to mention untrue.

    I have chatted with many older men who are into long term open relationships, and I disagree with their views. So, does that mean I should say "Old people! why are they so disrespectful! ?"... No. So, IMO, you should not as well.

    Maturity does not come with age, it comes with knowledge, experience - which essentially makes up wisdom. Wisdom is "usually" found in older men, but it may also be found in younger men. My apologies if this comes out wrong, but if you read my profile, I am sure you would understand where I am coming from.

    Classifying people's views on relationships should not be barred by an age cap. There may be an 18 year old like myself who is all for long term monogamous relationships and there may be a 40 year old who is all into short term open relationships.

    As much as i'd love to agree with the OPs observtion about "youngsters" given some of the exciting and well-articulated posts about "old people" made here yesterday, i also don't appreciate having broad statements and sweeping generalisations made about "old people" over age 30 or 35 years, and therefore won't buy into this line of reasoning. While i've certainly run across plenty of flaming idiots under the age of 30 years on this site and in real life, i've also run across the occassional impressive, level-headed 20-something guy......and 30+ year-old who's beyond dumber than any 18-year-old i've ever met. Bottom line.....age is a number.....it tells us how many birthdays a person has had thus far and while you can set certain expectations about a person based on their age (most 18yos are not doctors, most 40yos listen a little better than a 20yo does, etc...), there are no absolutes relative to age. On the other hand, you can absolutely miss out on learning from others' life experiences if you marginalize and minimize people based soley on how many candles are on their cake.

    Well I'm not remotely attracted to anyone 30+ usually, but if they make a move on me and are polite about it I respectfully turn them down.
    I'm quite conscientious about my future, and I'm not rude to people by any means... Not for any reason anyway. ;)
    I don't think you can just generalize people by their age, sure a lot may be immature guys 18-29... but I'm sure there's a lot of immature middle aged men too.

    The one thing I don't get about some older men is their arrogance when it comes to young guys. This thread seems very condescending in a sense, and if I wasn't objective I could take offense to this.

    But.....the overwhelming majority of age-biased posts in this forum - and on so many other gay sites - is made by younger guys and directed toward guys over 30. If i had a dime for every profile i've read (not here, but on another site) where under 30 guys blatently state "if you're over 30, don't talk to me" or something similar, i'd be independently wealthy now. I think any condescending tone you might be picking up on is partially a reaction to the general notion in the gay community that if you're over 30, you should be put out to pasture or something. i've seen a lot of reverse ageism too, and while i understand it, especially as an old guy now myself, i don't think that's justified either.

    im not really discerning with age. there are much more important qualities to a guy. though i do tend to go for 30 and up myself, in terms of physical attraction. my own age is probably the worst window through which to understand me mind you.

    Emotional maturity and intelligence are not age related. Hopefully, experience is but not always either.

    Psychology 101 tells you that at 12 you breach Piaget's stage of formal operation which essentially is the highest level of mental development (not only can you think concretely about things, but now you can think abstractly as well).
    Now of course a 12 year old does not possess the same mental capacity and emotional operations as one who is 30. Puberty pretty much conflicts with this which in guys, last time I checked, is supposedly completely finished in the early 20's. If not then then a little bit younger.
    I want to know what you mean by appreciating older men. I am 19 and always have professional respect for older men - they have lived more life then me and usually have a higher role in society than I currently do. Does not mean I actually like their character or find them attractive. I would not date someone who is more than 10 years older than myself but I would consider friendship or just stick with having respect for them.
    I would definitely not consider having sex or getting sexual with these men but more so because I think that that should be truly intimate and not a flash in the pan ordeal. Call me old fashioned in that sense I guess,

    experience, life, wisdom are all revelant. Age is a number, if you want to pigeon hole yourself based on a number, then your life will be sad and limited. People who waste time judging people on the number of years, large or small, that they carry are really missing out on enjoying others and living to the fullest...........Keithicon_wink.gif

    Generalizations are silly. I've met plenty of respectful young guys, and I've definitely known my share of disrespectful old guys. As someone else pointed out...sometimes "Emotional maturity has nothing to do with age".

    It works both ways man. I'm consistently reminded by older guys that I approach that, while good enough to fuck, they would never date someone my age because we are not "mature" enough yet and still into the heavy party scene. This is after I tell them that I am not into crystal meth and barely drink.

    It works both ways.

    Most people dont think long term when they are 18 into early 20's those are critical developmental periods. But not everyone is like that.

    I had a plan from the time I was 17 of where I was gonna in life and I made a plan b, c and d-z in case it dosent work out. I admit I act immature sometimes but considering Ive been taking care and supporting myself for the last 4 years I like to think even for 21 Im pretty well off.

    I just finished reading a thread about how so many younger guys love older men. Yea there are some younger dudes who dont like older guys but that kind of goes with the fact that everyone has different interest in what they find attractive.
