    A few years ago, something changed within me and I realized that the party is finally over and everything had to change. Diet, exercise, alcohol, drugs, etc.

    In January, my cholesterol level was so good that the doctor said I could stop taking the med for it. I was thrilled. I test every 3 mos or so for chol, sugar, and anything else my insurance will cover. In late March, my cholesterol was slightly higher than in January, but my good cholesterol was so good (I eat a lot of fish) that the doctor said there was no concern, just keep doing what I was doing. I did, and in fact, became more strict about the fats I was ingesting. Long story, short, sometimes it's genetics and you can't change it. It sucks big time. I guess I should be glad that there's medications, but in my mind, reliance on medicine sucks. Then, to top off that bit of news, I get this email here today at RealJock:

    hello mr.man
    i 18years old and i want a friend who can take care of me
    i wish you are the dear plz can add me at bleep@hotmail,com
    thax you my dad may god bles you my dad

    Hey, at least it wasn't a scam to part you with your money. But, then again...

    McGay....

    I got the same email. I gets lots of such emails from 20 year olds or less. Generally one or two every couple of days.

    Yes,it's similar to the Nigerian email scam...

    What's so ludicrous is that some claim to have read my profile and find that we are a match. Well, in my profile, I clearly state I'm not interested in being a "daddy" to anyone, and really not interested in entertaining the notion that a sexual/romantic relationship as an equal partnership, is possible between someone less than 25 and another guy so much older.

    So if they read my profile and think we are a "match" they're also dumb as doorknobs.

    Geesh.

    The poor grammar in that email makes my head hurt. You would think that being a gamer would accustom you to such crap, but it doesn't get better.

    Don't emails like that just make you wish you could reach through the internet (I mean, it's just a series of tubes, right?) and slap some people.

    If you've ever been on the gay Euro site gayromeo.com, the boys in Ghana flood everyone's mailbox with some variation of that daily.

    Hmm... sounds like somebody's been cribbing a little from "Everything is Illuminated," by Janathan Safran Foer.

    You guys are lucky. My mailbox is always empty. At this point I get all excited whenever I get a Real Jock update message. How do I get on that distribution list?

    Is this now the Jonathan Safran Foer Fan Club thread? Though I try to avoid 9/11-inspired literature, I thought that Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close was well done.

    Since I'm very attracted to Latin guys, does it count that I find myself getting called "Papi" quite a bit these days?!?!
    Just another way of bein' called a Daddy, I think.
    AND I'M NOT READY YET! LOL

    What is wrong with being called "Daddy?"

    If you're 40+ why not take it as a compliment? The fact is 40+ qualifies you as GRAND-daddy so where is the slight?

    Why the gay 'dread?'? The 'Peter Pan' explanation is pathetic. If you look/feel/act great like many here do, face reality and work it, love it, own it.

    A "Papi" or "Mami" can be any age as those terms are not so age-centered as "experience centered," hehe. A Papi is a guy who takes care of business, who knows how to hold it down in the world and the bedroom, and who's down for you whenever, whatever.

    I'm not sure if "Daddy" has the same connotation and as such, I'm much more reluctant to use it as I find many gay men sensitive about their ages.

    Argh... I'm about to sound totally pervy, I know...


    But honestly, what gets me really going, is slightly older guys. I KNOW! It's a little weird! But I think guys who have that bit of receding hairline are pretty cute. Add in a little bit of gray, and that turns it from cute, into very sexy.


    Also bald guys are cute, but I do prefer hair ;).



    ... so, I'll just... go sit in the corner for shamed, pervy people, shall I?

    Sounds like a famous internet prelude for asking for some money...
    but being called "Daddy" for the first time isn't bad...it's usually meant as a compliment for a man who's taken care of themselves
    I find men in shape in their 50's and 60's very hot

    Well, here's what bothers me about the term "Daddy." It's not the reference to the age difference. It implies a role playing, daddy/son, uncle/nephew. If that works for some, fine.

    Finding older men sexy and hot is fine...but wanting a "daddy" (as in being taken care of, in an unequal partnership) is a different thing all together.

    I think ANYONE who is fit, and athletic at any age is hot. But, yes, of course, guy in their 50s and 60s are particularly so... :-)

    I think that there are many explanations for the "dad syndrome" and fastprof describes one of them.

    The daddy is not exclusive to gay culture -- straights have their "sugar daddies" & "sugar mommas" too (remember Brad Pitt in Mr. & Mrs. Smith telling Angelina Jolie to "come to daddy"?). But most of the gay men that I have seen use the term use it as a control signal...it defines who's in charge. I think that guys who respond to a "daddy" may not always be looking to be taken care of, but rather, controlled or dominated by another man.
