    I think the subject explains it very well. Some guys who are in their 30's look 10 yrs younger, just recently i have started to be really aware. Great for them/you.

    Gee, I'm turning 45 this summer. Does that make mean I'm turning "new-35"? lol

    I won't complain! ;-)

    My parents are still together in their early eighties, and they don't look older than when my grand parents were 70!

    Heck, I think we're all aging better! Yaay! :-)

    I bet someone here with a background in human health/sociology could offer an interesting expanation. (Besides, I've had too much wine to say more ;-) )

    So yeah, I agree man. Lots of guys look really great for their age!

    I thought 32 was great but I've had the BEST summer ever so 35 is shaping up to be wonderful and I have no problems with aging (not that I'm in a hurry)!

    Drink lots of water, don't smoke, laugh and smile as much as you can... :) Oh yeah, exercise doesn't hurt either!

    Good clean living and a positive attitude help slow down the aging process. I will be 43 this fall, people still think I'm 36-37. 40 is the new 30!

    I'll be 46 on Aug 8, and I still look like I'm in my early 30s. In my case, I'm pretty sure it's just luck of the genetic draw.

    Its all the preservatives in the food. Just think how long it will take for our bodies to decay!

    Not at all, Mike. I'm from a long lineage of Transylvanians.

    Hmmm, 25 was a bad year for me, too. First break up.

    Crimthann> Its all the preservatives in the food.

    Yup, I make sure to eat lots of em.
    I'm also all for global warming (do you blame me? Have you been to Michigan in the winter?)


    I think there is something to the observation. I would postulate it's more true of people who don't smoke (why is that?) and with healthy diets (not the fast food nation).

    Then again, the trick could be hair coloring. I have a number of friends who started doing so already in the 30s.

    All joking aside, I think part of this is just perspective. Once you get to 30 you look around at your peers and think “30 doesn’t look so old.” Same with 40. One of my students once told me “old is your own age plus 15.”

    Nevertheless, I do think we take better care of ourselves now than people did two generations ago, in part because we know better.

    Everyday life has changed too: many physically demanding manufacturing jobs have gone overseas in the past 25 years, so most of us don’t have to endure the kind of daily physical wear-and-tear our grandparents faced. My grandmother worked in a silk mill and my grandfather lined the hulls of ships with asbestos (guess what killed him).

    Medicine is also better now. Nothing will put the years on you like an un-treated or under-treated illness.

    So part of it is definitely environment, self-care, etc, but I think perspective plays a role as well.

    yeh deffinately,

    healthy diet is so crucial just to feeling great, you are what you eat right?!!


    Smoking, yeh that's def a big hint to rapid aging, luckily i do not smoke...even though im sure people would think i was a lot cooler.

    Also, guys are dressing younger, appropriately...the majority of hot guys in clubs are 30's plus, im not especially attracted to older guys.

    I think our expectations of what the average person should look like at a certain age also plays a part. While most people are getting less and less healthy, with our diet and *buzz word alert* sedentary lifestyle, the people who really care about their health are looking better in comparison.

    Piss-takers? Is that some kind of regional slang or did this forum change to a subject of watersports?

    Also, this isn't always a good thing. For too many guys, 20 is the new 10.

    Probably yes.

    I'll be 33 in October, and I have to say that so far, my 30s haven't been anywhere near as bad as I imagined when I was, say, 21. I also think I physically look better now than I did then.

    There is definitely something to be said for living a healthy lifestyle and taking care of yourself.
