    So, I just heard about grindr a couple of weeks ago in a forum here and was intrigued. I was hoping that I could start making some connections and maybe make a few friends. And, no I was not naïve - I knew it was basically for hook ups, but still figured to give it a try.

    At first, I was a little discouraged since I'm 53 and apparently that's some sort of age record or a bunch of guys are really lying about their age. But, to my enormous surprise, LOTS of young guys seem to love us more mature men. I even have 17 and 18 year olds wanting to hook up with me (which I decline). Only two guys out of about 20 so far that want to "hook up" with me have been over 30, and even then just barely. I'm having trouble keeping track of everyone and am going to have keep a notebook so that I don't get confused and piss them all off.

    So, can anyone give me advice on how a more mature gay man can go about meeting other mature gay men? Not that I don't love you young guys, I just would like to have some friends that I can keep up with (plus Viagra is really expensive). Bar scene is not good for the same reasons - all young guys.

    Help me out here guys.

    Grindr is, like, the "MySpace" of geo apps.

    Try Jack'd or Scruff for a different set of guys. However, El Paso may not be a hotbed of activity in any case.

    Thank you. Not sure that's going to help. Just looks like a whole lot more young guys.

    Ever heard of the epidic/pandemic of the late 80's early 90's? My theory is it wiped out most guys our age. I knew lots of gays close to my age back in the last days of high school and after, and honestly at least 3/4s of them are dead ... Aids mostly, but some suicides too

    Does your city hold fundraising events? For example, the town I live in holds an annual AIDS charity event and it's a great way to meet people. I would try that if one exist in your town.
