    I feel like I might as well be Twenteen. What is really different being 20 as opposed to 19 seriously? Act like you know I am in no rush whatsoever to get old but why are these restrictions even there? I can't go dancing wherever i want to unless i'm stripping. I still can't experience a casino or better yet have the option to buy alcohol. Although if i really wanted that so much it wouldn't be all that difficult for me. On the other hand i did get some stuff accomplished while i was still 19. I did my taxes on my own for the first time last night actually. $1,490.00 refund !!! I started the account for my non-profit organization the Straights and GaysThat Care(SGTC) on wednesday the 18th of February 09. I quit dancing at Club Xstatic because i decided it was a waste of my time and I'll be going BACK TO COLLEGE THIS SUMMER. I'm still working at taco bell as of this month 9 months!! Woo HOO!!

    Could you please tell us about it? My partner & I contribute to a number of GLBT non-profits, would be interested in hearing about this one. What is your mission, your goals, and your needs? Thanks!

    He was being facetious. If he wasn't being facetious he probably has six kids.

    The mission of the SGTC is to make sure the hatecrime laws "we have" are being enforced and prevented.
    We also believe the history books are lacking the gay element
    Where are our leaders in the history book why doesn't everybody already know who harvey milk is and del martin and how often does anybody really know that Bayard Rustin was a gay man working along side MLK?
    I believe that through education and at least trying to understand each other that everybody can make it especially in times like these.
    We also advocate for glbt self defense classes similar to womens self defense programs. I also feel that the hate amongst ourselves needs to be addressed too. We may all like men even on here but there are still many divisions that need to be worked on and telling others to change how they are doesn't help any of us. we are who we are and there is nothing in this god forsaken land that can change that. Our main mission is to stop hate.

    I could be missing something, but why is this thread under "Sexual Health"

    Happy b-day by the way.

    But at the stroke of midnight did you suddenly lose your libido?

    First and foremost, congrats on turning 20. I work with college kids who on turning 21, sometimes whine, "I'm feeling so old!" My response is to glare at them followed by an annoyed, "Oh puleeez!" Here's my experience of important birthday milestones:

    • 19: "I'm 19 already?! How'd that happen?"

    • 23: One of the great "perfect ages" for a guy. You're old enough to do anything you want for as long as you want to do it.

    • 25: Just starting to become useful to humanity because you're beginning to think about something other than sex 0.1% of the time.

    • 30: HUGE relief for me. I felt like I was finally leaving my awkward high school years behind.

    • 33: Another "perfect age" in that you're starting to feel like a confirmed adult.

    • 40: Really getting comfortable in your own skin. Also getting to the point in which you don't give a rat's ass about what others think about you.

    • 48 (current age): Some grieving over lost opportunities (mostly about not taking a few more chances in life) but working through those issues fairly easily. Definitely feeling great physically -- snowboarding in the winter, sailing in the summer -- and am at peace with who I am, just as I am. Bonus: "You mean I can start taking advantage of AARP discounts in just two years?! Cool!!!" icon_lol.gif

    Enjoy every minute of being 20. And when you get tired of 20, give 21 a try.

    Happy birthday.

    I'd recommend watching the Discovery series "The Brain." In particular, study up on the adolescent brain.

    Your brain doesn't get hard wired until nearly 30 years of age. There can be major difference in your ability to make good judgments until you get past 25 or so. Judgments, of course, are crucial to survival, and success.

    I'm pretty sure my brain wiring completely changed at some point between 26 and 27. And now, lots of guys in their late 20's have agreed with me on this. However, lots of guys in their early 20's just think I'm batshit crazy, and tell me "you're only four years older, how much different can life really be."

    Its not that life is different, just my outlook is. IDK.

    I personally feel the same as i did when i turned 13 to me these are the milestones

    1 first year of your life of course it's a big deal

    2-9 that part of life seemed to fly but everybody is supposed to have a happy
    birthday at these ages.

    10 ah finally a double digit

    13 look now i'm a teenager

    16 or 17 Sweet sixteen for some and hey time to start driving woo!!!

    18 yay i have the option to smoke and gamble oh man if i have sex with that
    16 year old i'm going to jail for pedophilia.

    20 not a teen anymore

    21hah now i can do what i want!!! WEEEE

    30 oh wow where did my twenties go?

    35 Time to run for president weee!!!

    after all of these ages i really don't think i'll care so much about my age. i think once i'm past 35 i'll start lying about my age.lol the gay male community sucks for older men and i think that's horrible but a lot of these older men after my age group seem to have let themselves go...hmmmm. Ooph.lol
