    I'm 38 and my 30's have been the best so far. I've always been a very happy little fucker, confident, content, and optimistic. But I wasn't expecting my 30's to be this good. I guess I thought that 20's would be the best, but in my 30's I've been even more confident, more fit, more attractive, more adventurous, more social, and had more fun. I've been asking around, and I've heard people say that their 40's were even better than their 30's. Some even said their 50's have been the best.

    What about you?

    Wow, first off:
    Had to check my own profile for my age (should tell you something).
    yes, my 30's rocked.
    But, the 40's have been too good, so much so, I'm scared of my 50's as I can not beleive it can get any better.

    Not sure about decade but the best time of my life was in my early 20s. That's when I took a college internship at Disney World and everything changed. I came out, learned to make friends, started dating....it was a great time and one that I'll always remember. Oh I'm almost 42 and as I grow older, I'm still having a blast! icon_smile.gif

    I'll be 49 in August, and I am happy to say that my 40's have been the best decade so far, in terms of lifestyle and personal fulfillment. There's always room for improvement, but compared to my uncertain 20's and my workaholic 30's, I'm definitely enjoying life more and more. Staying healthy, happy, and focused are the primary goals as I approach my "twilight years"...

    My mid-thirties were when things picked up. I seemed to lose the fear and gain confidence. Thus the world began to open up....

    I feel I`m on an upward curve and look forward to the future.

    I'll be 50 in a few months. In my 20s I was SO tired. College and new jobs, etc. I'd say 40s feel good. You so don't care anymore about trivial things, and you are glad to just be kickin'.

    Rockbiter, you asked the question, "What about me?"

    My chronological age is 68 years old. Without a doubt, my 60's has been my best decade ever! In my 60's I've healed from major trauma when I was a child. Loving myself and liking myself has been my best lessons learned.

    Facing my fears head on and conquering those fears has improved my life dramatically. Instead of being afraid of sports and feeling inadequate, I now embrace doing sports I didn't understand, because no one had ever taken the time to show me how to do any of those things. Now I am learning how to do inline skating. I'm learning how to swim, instead of being afraid of the water. I am excelling in bodybuilding. I love riding my mountain bike in the hills of Scottsdale, AZ. I can watch football and enjoy it, instead of trying to figure out what is going on. All because loving men took time out of their lives to teach me.

    I knew I was gay all of my life, but always hid it from everyone. I even tried to pray my gay away! I played straight so well, that when I did come out, I surprised the hell out of friends and family. In my 60's I came out. Weight that I had been carrying around on my shoulders was suddenly lifted and made a crashing sound as it fell off my shoulders and into an abyss, never to be seen again. Another fear faced and removed.

    Four years ago I was diagnosed as being diabetic. I did the diabetic diet and lost weight. But when I decided to start working out 2 years ago, what a blessing that became... 1 year ago I was told that I was no longer diabetic... because I wanted to workout, body build and improve my body. I never expected that I was going to rid myself of diabetes too.

    Because of working out, my body went from an overweight and weak body that I wanted to hid, to a body that I am very proud to show off. Men started looking at me instead of ignoring me.

    Because of the healing work I have done in my 60's, I have gotten rid of the pain from physical, emotional and sexual abuse when I was a child... I have removed my father from out of my head and out of my life...

    Several people had been telling me that I had to forgive my father for what he had done to me. He has been dead for 20 years now... so physically that would be impossible. But, on the day of my 68th birthday, January 30, 2013, my therapist looked me in the eyes and said, “What the hell are you carrying him around for?” “You don't want to let him loose do you?” “You seem to have this hope that he is going to miraculously appear before you and say 'I love you Murray!,' but it will never happen!” “Do you like carrying him around on your shoulders?” What my doctor said hit me straight between the eyes. Later that same evening I worked on all of that at my MKP, ManKind Project meeting. I have processed the results of the work I did that evening.

    But since that night, I realized that I had gotten the best birthday present ever! I've had this overwhelming sense of peace and being grounded come over me. That night has created such an amazing healing within me. HE IS DEAD! I have released him out of my head. No longer do I hear him telling me what to do. No longer will he create fear in my mind. He can't hit me anymore. Now that I have gotten rid of him, I can move on with NO weight on my shoulders... I don't have to carry him around anymore!!!

    So Rockbiter, to answer your question... By far, my 60's has been my best decade ever!

    I'm 20.
    I would have been a person who doesn't even have a life.
    I would have been a thief.
    I would have been a peson that sucks at anything in this country forever.
    ......

    I have a friend who I don't even have a chance to meet her in real life ,but she changed my life !
    This decade 2010s is really awesome , I know what I want , I found my own reasons to live , I was turned from a shy boy to be a very confident person now ... etc..
    I hope it keeps being awesome like that icon_razz.gif

    hmm -

    I'm going to say, so far, my 40's. Less emotional insecurities, much more comfortable with who I am, further up on the career ladder, WAY better financial security, & still able to maintain a good physique....

    It's kind of a toss up...

    My 20s were fun and adventurous - I lived in a few different cities and met a ton of new people.

    My 30s have been more stable but with more accomplishments, like buying my first house and coming to terms with my sexuality.

    I'm 56 and the 50s have definitely been the best. As far as I'm concerned, things just keep getting better, and I attribute that to getting wiser as I get older. I've learned what's important and needs my attention and what's just not worth bothering about.

    I was seriously just about to write something similar.
    I'm 56 as well and I couldn't agree more.
