    No really, I came across this article which was written by an older gay man and reading it felt a tad scary!

    Like when he says only young people are what everyone wants and that no one will be faithful to you. He also says that most of his being an older gay guy problems are because he feels he doesn't belong to any specific group or order and that had he not been gay then he'd have a girl, family and kids.

    This seems really sad to me. I mean maybe its true, I mean being a young lad and getting it, I know nothing about lonely gay men's lives, I mean we all don't know how it's like and should shut our trap but I've seen quite an impressive number of older gay men around here and they look happy, healthy and thriving!

    what are your thoughts?

    Everyone who is old has already been young. There's no reason to despair.

    could you provide a link to the article? and yes i'm sure there are plenty of older guys on this site (single and coupled) who are happy and fulfilled.

    Sounds like he wants a pity shag. There are lots of older gay guys like George Clooney and Cliff Richard that maintain an active love life.

    The cup is always half full or half empty. Depends on your outlook no matter how old you are. I will say though that now that I'm in my 50s I feel much more viscerally aware than I was in my 20s that this life is fleeting and that it's important to cultivate gratitude every day.
