    I'm fascinated by people who can remain pretty much the same throughout time. I often wonder how they do it. Some people don't deviate too far from their baby pictures. Sadly most of the people I know who are able to achieve this are women.

    Do you think this type of consistency in appearance is possible for men as well?

    I'm a big believer in the importance of aging gracefully. You can't control how you look on the outside, but you can control what you eat/drink, how you treat your body, etc. Sadly, many people I know do next to no maintenance on their bodies and minds

    Jay1922 is right: a lot of Asians do seem to maintain their appearance over time. So do many Black folk. I'm told I haven't changed much over the past 20 years or so. Some of that is because I've always taken good care of my body. And some if it is because (caution - cliche ahead) Black don't crack. ;)

    Actually, one of the BIG complaints with most women is that men seemingly get more handsome with time. I think that's true in many cases, Will Smith, Denzel Washington, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Jackie Chan, Johnny Depp, Morgan Freeman, Jet Li, Antonio Banderas.. I could go on ad-nauseam.


    There are a few unfortunate incidents of men trying to run from father time under the knife. Sadly Mickey Rourke, once one of the sexiest faces in Hollywood has been disfigured for life a result of it.

    He wasn't alone. Burt Reynolds looks as if he is riding in a centrifuge, Wayne Newton has blown his mug up to the extent he physically looks like a balloon. The latest - Rupert Everett, particularly sad his once dashingly handsome face drastically ruined for life. icon_eek.gif

    Even scarier still..

    Robert Redford, arguably one of the most handsome men in the "Golden" years is still gorgeous at 75. It's been rumored he had some tweaking, well if so he had the sense to keep it minimal. robert_2.jpg

    Truly women have had more success, and because they can camouflage with makeup and hair the results are far more pleasing. Liz Taylor looked bloody amazing several times over the course of her life. Cher, also remarkable, although this last go round was not the perfection seen in prior work. Sharon Stone's latest rewind looks amazing, and Madonna looks good, however both women had best slam on the breaks now while they can.

    Those that begin down this path seem to pass a point along the way where common sense sails out the window. The "Wildenstein" syndrome takes over and at the hands of unscrupulous doctors the sacrifice of nature is shocking. Faces destroyed, careers over. All because someone noticed a line somewhere.

    I'll take my chances with nature thanks.

    Just yesterday I shocked my classmate by telling him I had a four year old daughter (sperm donor) with my two lesbian friends. He then asked how old I was and flabbergasted when I told him I was encroaching on 31 icon_eek.gif
    Delayed puberty and genetics are my gifts.

    I'm amazed at how many guys just decline after 21, slowed metabolism, hair loss, etc...I suppose if you mature fast you age fast.

    It's not that hard to age gracefully: Eat healthy, exercise (weight training + cardio + stretch/yoga), use sunscreen, moisturize & floss (had to put that in; I'm a dentist after all).

    Yes, but only if men stop worrying about the "fem" nature of beauty aids.

    I'm not Asian, but I look Asian. I'm sure that helps a bit in my youthful appearance.

    Some of us just have that naturally youthful look. I'll probably continue looking this way. If my father is anything to go by - though we really don't look much alike - we do have that eternal youth gene. The mans 50 and hasn't gone grey yet with a full head of hair. But whatever. I'll look this way for probably another 8 years or so before I'm actually able to grow a beard and not this gross scruff. icon_cool.gif

    Staying stress free always helps...sometimes you just have to say "fuck it" to some things or "fuck them" to some people and not worry about it or them anymore...that's the best thing I could think of lol
