Is realjock.com mostly for younger guys?

    I joined this site because I thought it might be a good place to make some new buddies...or possibly something more serious. I'm a huge sports fan, and I like working out to stay in shape. So when I found this site, it sounded interesting. But after a few weeks, I'm noticing that most of the guys seem to be late teens to 30-something. I know there are a few of us 40 and up, but we seem to be in the minority. When I check out the forums or chat rooms, I rarely say anything to anyone because I can't imagine I'd have much in common with someone 22. So...what do y'all think?

    Well sorry you feel that way. Actually I kinda want to get to know some older guys, not necessarily in a sexual way but get to know their experience, and learn from their wisdom. BUT, I have noticed that the older men tend to shy off from the younger ones. We don't bite, at least I don't, and I feel there is this barrier of ageist as minuscule as it seems I still sense it when I read a few members posts.

    That being said, how would you know you don't have anything in common with a 22 year old? have you asked them what their interest are? hobbies, or maybe passions in life? I always keep this thought in the back of my mind that I try not to judge or discriminate people because you never know what parts of life they have walked in, because no two people walk the same path,

    Sorry for the rant.

    It depends on what you're really looking for. The age range on RJ does skew younger. Last year, when I was 37, I did a search to see how many members were younger than me versus how many members were older than me. I don't remember the exact numbers, but far more members were younger. I wouldn't be surprised if that were true of many sites on the Internet. They appeal to a younger crowd.

    If you're here to make friends, then I don't know why age would really matter. If you're here for something more, then RJ probably isn't your best bet. It isn't really set up for dating the way dedicated dating sites are.

    One of the nicest things about this site is that it allows guys of all ages and walks of life to get to know each other. I'm 52 and I very rarely feel excluded because of my age. Put in the effort and guys will see you for who you are.

    Have fun!

    I heard Ruppert Everett say once that when gay men turn 40, they also turn invisible. Unfortunately, there may be a bit of truth to that.

    You're 52? Heh.. I guess you're like my older older brother. icon_smile.gif Age is never an issue for me, I could care less how young or how old someone is, as long as I get along with them it doesn't even matter.

    I honestly didn't feel like there are that many younger guys here, but I guess I was wrong.

    While I understand what you mean --- it's hard to have things in common with folks who are 15-20 years of you. though it can happen! i'm 30 but have enjoyed chatting with folks anywhere from 25 to 45. though me personally, I find I have more in common with older guys vice younger ones.

    There's a lot of cool older guys on here and there's also a few creepy older guys on here. Same thing goes for younger people I guess.

    Well, I hope you stick around, Bry. Of course it depends on what want or are looking for. I'm *way* over the hill but I've made some friends here and its nice.

    I'm younger... and thought i was a minority being my age. I do think there is a lot of younger guys on this web page... but i think the majority of guys you want to talk to, are with a more mature age.

    And there you go. If you want others in our age group to chime in, more have to pick up the ball and run with it. icon_biggrin.gif

    I think most guys beyond 40 turn away from using online resources to meet guys. I'm one of those at nearly 41 that's not using online sites as much for the very reason of the generational gap.

    I find walking up to someone in public and talking to see if there is a spark there is far better than online.
