    Ok I do not really hate being young, however just on the issue of dating. From what I have been through in my life I had to mentally grow up more quickly than others, i.e. being the oldest and taking care of my family. So I cannot help but to be attracted to older guys, and they all shoot me down because of my age, some more nice than others which really shows their maturity.

    POINT IS: I want someone I can communicate with and I do not feel like I can do that with a guy my age, not saying there aren't guys my age that I cannot get along with but on average NOOOOOOicon_mad.gif

    Why is it when older men see age they run before getting to know the person?

    Frustrating how many your age you'll meet after you turn 40.
    They're out there, thinking the same thing you are...trust.

    You know..you have to understand..18 is pretty much the start of your adult life!..
    No matter how mature you think you are..you still have a long way to go.
    In the gay community older men as a group are slowly dating older and older..More and more younger gays are dating their own age..

    .. There are still quite a few older men that look for younger guys..but most older men are entering in or a nesting phase..

    ..Low drama.. Monagamy.. Quiet ..simplistic life..
    Most 18 y/o are just getting started..!

    Did that help?

    Don't wish away your youth - it'll be gone before you know it, that's all I'm sayin'.

    I guess, it's just in high school I did not have really any close guy friends because our interests were just to different. I start college in a week hopefully things will change, most say they will...

    I hesitated to read this thread, thinking it would be a stupid rant.
    I read the thread anyway, and it's not really about what the title says.
    If you really want to communicate, make it cohesive instead of spitting out distracting pieces of important but otherwise irrelevant information. That's a turn off to people who are otherwise focused, and leads any aged people to be disinterested or just keep away.

    Because most people aren't trained to spot a well-made fake ID, and the risk of making a mistake is too high.

    I'm pretty sure most older gay guys enjoy having a boy toy.
    I've seen a few weirdos who don't but they are rare.
    18 is the perfect age to be...well in America it's 21 because of that moronic drinking rule.

    Damn I wish I was still 18 though...I hate you, bitch.

    At age 18, you haven't gained the social maturity that most guys say 21-22+ have experienced or are looking for. Not to mention, you can't go to bars are clubs.

    As someone who is neither physically nor sexually attracted to (much) older men, I tend to be more emotionally, intellectually and socially compatible with older people in general...I HAVE NO FUCKING IDEA WHY!!! But Old people tend to love me and having been around them for most of my life has created a, now, very obvious disconnect with my own generation. Not that I'm all that disappointed at the inability to connect with selfish, inconsiderate, shallow drama-queens with self-esteem so low that it threatens to rival their cockyness (not confidence) as far as undesirable traits in a human being can go... BUT I am happy that I am now at an age that is not overly faulted for making mistakes and can revel in the fact that our generation is one of the most accepting since the flower child days of free love.
    OP maybe this will give you some insight as to what older for younger is about. I can understand the sudden impulse to run from a number because we, as a cohort, are pretty much carbon copies. They're looking for the individuals and outliers of the group. just embrace the fact that you ARE unique and expect a change. Keeping in mind that old people are set in their ways and that 'old fashioned' is a good golf club to use cause its one that lasts.

    Thanks to cerebral atrophy and epilepsy, I run the risk of getting Alzheimer's or Dementia in my elderly years. Thankfully, I'm still able to try to Enjoy Life NOW! Be Happy NOW! And when the time comes for me to forget about my would be regrets; I'll have less, cause I'm not going to die miserable with the rest of you Titanic Drama Bitches! icon_biggrin.gif

    My friend I am right there with you. I love older guys and am sick of being grouped with all the young guys. Its going to be tough to find someone but we cant give up. Hopefully there are guys out there that don't judge a book by its cover.
