    Is there an age that one should stop going to the clubs? I have seen many people who I think should be at home, not in a club at their age.

    Not so much an age as an attitude. I've known men in their fifties that still go clubbing and fit right in, having a wonderful time. Others, like me, stopped going a bit after 30 because I was over it. I sort of overdid it in my twenties and was burned out. I got into my first LTR at that point also, and I personally feel that the meatracks are for single people...

    I did enough of the bar scene from 15 - 25, so I'm mostly over it. Sometimes when I'm going out I'm in the mood for dancing all night, but more than likely I'd rather hit a pub or lounge wiht my friends and have more of a relaxed, low-key evening.

    Is there an age one should stop? Of course not.

    It just depends on the person. The age requirements for clubs refer to a mininum age and not a maximum. "I have seen many people who I think should be at home." I agree with that to a point. I don't understand really why people of a certain age like going to clubs, because I don't anymore myself because I feel out of place now. Been there, done that, but also if those over 35 or 40 or 50 want to go...fine...I hope they have fun. Nookie 23 is a hot guy, but I hope he doesn't forget to be open minded...old girls just wanna have fun too.

    Hm, so who's doing the deciding that some people shouldn't be there? I'm way over clubs myself, but if I wanted to go I would go, because I don't really give a damn what the 'community' or some wet behind the ears children think. Is there some sort of criteria to meet? Does one have to impress Paula, Simon, and Randy to earn one's way in?

    I dunno.

    When I go (rarely) to clubs, I go to dance. If a 98 year old wants to go to the club and dance, who the hell am I to tell him he shouldn't?

    I never was much for clubs and bars, aka meat markets. I felt like an oversmoked alcohol saturated sardine going deaf and an overworked DNA sample gathering machine from all the hands and body parts rubbing all over me.

    Why not go to a no-holds barred bathhouse, put a blind fold on, and stand nude in the middle of the room. icon_neutral.gif

    When I encounter a smoke-free club that has enough room for me to scratch my own balls and I'm not deaf and coated with 17 different drinks, then I have fun.

    I always did enjoy outdoor parties far more ;-)

    ok i am a younger guy, and i must say that i dont think there is a real age where guys should stop going. now i think there are clubs that better fit older guys, granted i live in the greater LA area so we have many clubs for all age groups.

    I'd go to a club for Paula. icon_redface.gif

    But yeah, I don't see any reason why age should matter in going to the clubs. When I go out I see many 21-year olds who look older than me, and many 48-year olds who dance better and act younger than me.

    I rarely go out. And it's not because of my age, I just don't find quality people at gay bars. To many losers and people that think I would want anything to do with them. And if I do go out its with my straight girl friends who want to go dancing, which is cool.

    I LOVE going to the gay bars/clubs! I've only been a few times the best time was when I was in NYC last year and it was my first time being out in a gay bar/club as a gay man. I had soooooooo much fun flirting and I didn't buy a drink the entire time I was in NYC. I love NYC boys... LOL, I'm not out so I don't go to the gay bars/clubs around here, but whenever I'm in another city, I make sure to go out and enjoy myself! I don't know what the proper age to stop going is... someone that has been out for years might get tired after 25, but someone like me who hasn't gone but a handful of times probably won't get tired of going until my 40's... All of the clubs I went to in NYC were full of younger guys, 18-40ish.

    Well Nookie23 I agree with you, not that theirs a particular age limit but there sure is a Maturity limit that most of us set for ourselves. My Daughter, Her boyfriend, and several other younger friends invite me every month or so. When I do give in and go, as long as an older man appears to be acting his age, and not trying to hit on all the young "HUNKS" he seems to be well received, or ignored (MORE LIKELY ignored) But for me, at this age of 54, I'm over the bar seen, and with my "WHITE" haired goatee, I just feel like "KERNAL SANDERS" (me LOL !!!) should be home with his white goateed self, getting the chicken ready for sundays dinner !!! ha !!!

    I'm over the bars to be honest with you. The only reason I go is because it's hard to find a place where you can meet other gay guys. It sucks that I have to deal with people who think they're better than you because of their looks/bodies/moneyicon_eek.gif. Anyway, as for age, as long as you realize that you may be too old for some people, and if they politely let you know they're not interested in you if you hit on them...Please don't be obnoxious.

    Oh please. You're going to be out and about because I know you're just waiting for your chance to throw down the choreography to Britney's latest at SideTrackicon_wink.gif

    I love to go out have a few drinks and dance about once a month or so. Somtimes there is no real choice in the club I want to go to. I decide based on the music and set up of the club. It's not my goal to hit on ppl at the bar. In the summer I had every thursday off. There was this great club for dancing at on Wed nites, but it was "college nite". I went anyway. I did feel like I was at a high school dance..lol, but after a beer or two I was fine and loved the music and dance floor. icon_biggrin.gifIt was a great nite of danceing and a few guys came up to me with thier number and/or danced with me. I guess there is no real age that you should stop going to any club so long as you have a good attitude and enjoy it.

    No, but you should have to be at least 30 to get in one.

    It really depend on why you are going out to the bars really.

    For me I figure I have another five to six years.

    I love to dancer having trained as dancer. That's my passion and dancing is my Catharsis!

    My best friend in Los Angeles once said to how would like to be remembered and I told him for my volunteer work and for having the time of my life on the Dance floor.

    I find it very funny when I hear guys say I'm over the bars!

    Give me a slammin DJ and a case of water then I'm good!

    My experience is diffrence because I can count on two hands and I have fingers left the number of time I actually went out the bars to drink and pick up some guy.

    It was all about the music and dancing!

    I tried meeting people at church instead, but found there weren't as many drunk guys to have sex with.

    No there is no age. I'll be dancing at clubs until I am physically unable to do so.

    To each their own. If they're having fun, then why not? Why should it matter? Personally, I go to a club maybe once a year these days and bars not much more than that, at least if I'm going to go alone. I just don't find them the kind of places to meet and talk to people. But, they can be fun to go to to people watch. To each their own.

    Where else can you dance, at home alone? I love to dance. If you young guys can't deal with just looking at or mingling with older guys then maybe you are in the wrong club.

    You know, there is nothing more sexy than a guy with nice body dancing.
