    A certain member in here (cough,shark, cough) seems to think I'm out of line and immature because I like to go clubbing once in a while. Never mind that I only go out drinking once, maybe twice a month so it's not like I'm the next Amanda Bynes or anything. But he says this makes me ambition less and a party dolly. Wtf is a party dolly? It sounds like a country music star...

    He also insulted me for going to the beach. What's wrong with the beach???

    So, should I put away my circuit high tops and retire? What else is a minimally attractive, perfectly healthy, single gay man to do in South Beach?

    Or do you think he was grasping at straws for ways to insult me???

    Oh damn, he told u off didnt he. Hahahaahaicon_biggrin.gif dnt mind that shit, i mean u dnt need to please anybody. I f u still like to go clubbing and going to the beach that fine, so long as u act responsible when u drink and dnt make a fool of yourself. To tell u the truth 28 is not that old for a person to go clubbing. He just has his own insecurities and envy the fact that u still can have fun.

    Is [x age] too old to do [y thing]?

    The answer is always do your own thing. Who cares.

    And yes, please be careful about becoming the next Amanda Bynes. icon_lol.gif

    But be even more careful about taking advice from Aristoshark.

    waaaaay to old to be clubbing. that should stop at like 14, people must be repulsed to see your saggy old flesh on the beach. yuck. you should also stop working out too, being seen in any public place at your age is discussing, stop working (totally time to retire). While you are at it just kill yourself for being so fucking old. icon_wink.gif

    My clubbing nights slowed down when I was in my early 30's. By 35, I didn't want to go anymore. Going to a club now (for me) is like a chore. I'd rather stay home and watch a movie. But the beach? I'll go anytime....weather permitting.

    Age 25 is the cut-off for having fun as a gay man.
    Stay home and take up knitting.

    Aristoshark saidNo one said it's too old to go clubbing.
    It is way too old to allow your life to revolve around nothing else.

    I agree with that approach. My best clubbing years were 46-56, right after I came out. Not that I was the best clubber, obviously, nor of interest to anyone except guys my own age range, but I was having fun. While doing tons of other things, too. Maybe the guys who have these cut-off ages only know about the twink clubs.

    failscarf saidAmanda, 28 is not too old to be clubbing. But 28 is too old to be posting a thirst of acceptance thread at 3 in the morning.

    +1

    LMAO!

    Why are you two fighting (Jmuscm, Sharkie)? Seriously, you're two of the coolest guys in here.. Just put aside your differences and move on. Not everything has to be nuclear-bitch-drama-meltdown, ya know.

    party dolly lol. Sounds like some floozy woman of lose virtue lol.Such an old-time term. Love it.

    I feel like he was suggesting that u will end up like the those old, wrinkly men who never grew up and out of the club scene. Still desperately holding onto your fleeting youth by tanning and going to the beach and clubbing. . trying to act young, hip, and cool... Typical single gay man of south FL

    I personally don't think 28 is too old to be clubbing. I mean, I'm 29 and can't say that I go "clubbing" per se....like I did when I lived in south Florida.. Ppl in San Diego aren't really "clubby" type of people as much as people in south FL are. . . South FL is a place to go clubbing, thats what u do in South FL-- what else is there to do really? lol.

    I think one ages out of being a club scene person around 33 or 34. If you look 35 or 40 and you're hitting the clubs every weekend, I guess one could see that as a little desperate and "try-hard"... like dude, get a fucking life already. It may be perceived that you lack depth and intelligence as well-- hitting the clubs when u get older. Perhps one should be pursing more sophisticated and worldly pursuits like traveling, good paying jobs, perhaps have a masters or PhD by now, owning a home, settling down and getting married, stability, etc. . I dunno. People think like that. You were called a party dolly because u can't be taken seriously. You're a drunk, a pleasure-seeker, who lacks any real depth, intelligence, or sophistication. Drinking and clubbing in south Beach is your whole existance... and shark feels because you're a vocal bottom that's pretty much all u do...is bottom and get drunk at the clubs. Rinse and repeat... I'm not saying this is what u are--however that's what ppl can and do perceive.


    Anyway, 28 isn't too old to go clubbing dude. And there's certainly nothing wrong with going to the beach. The beach is a wonderful place and u live right by the beach, why wouldn't u go? One thing south FL has going for it are it's amazing beaches and beautiful water. I was a total beachcomber when I lived there. . I even lifeguarded at deerfield beach for 3 years while in college. Loved it.

    Clubbing can make you "old" faster than not clubbing depending on how "hard" you club.

    GAMRican saidClubbing can make you "old" faster than not clubbing depending on how "hard" you club.

    I used to club very hard. Not the drinking part, but the dancing part until closing time. I thought it kept me physically younger, and the weight off. Best aerobics ever! LOL! And earlier at home I'd play club remixes and dance for practice before going out. Quite the total workout.

    But stand & pose at the bar all night, drinking the whole time? Yeah, that'll age you real fast.

    What is age anyways but the number of revolutions around the sun since some doctor signed a birth certificate stored at the courthouse. Too many people are hung up on crazy ideas about what "should" be happening at all sorts of specific ages. So go have fun, do you at any age and fuck the naysayers, because the rest is all bullshit and it's bad for you. icon_smile.gif

    It's time to move on to a nice piano bar where they play show tunes, and the patrons can sing along.

    Only if they have a convenient spot near the piano to park the walkers & the wheelchairs. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I love a piano lounge, as background music for drinks or a meal. But a piano bar, with a bunch of drunken retirees hanging on to the grand for dear life, while they howl off-key show tunes that nobody else ever heard - NO. icon_mad.gif

    For me, clubbing is a social event I do with friends. It can be kind of fun and entertaining. I get hit on. There are outrageous things said and some really funny things you witness. If I go a couple times a year, that is probably plenty. I just have other things to do. I think that kind of approach negates any sort of "age" requirement, but then
    I never made "clubbing" a regular thing even when I came out 10 years ago.

    A gay man in a club at 28 - okay grandpa, you need to take up a hobby cause no one wants to see yo' old ass in da' club. Personally, I am now part of the historical society of Southern California, and I go to senior bingo every Thursday afternoon. I am 26, by the way, so you've longed over stayed your welcome!
