Hello, yes I can admit to having a midlife crisis.I am in the midst of one now. A feeling of incomprehensible angst, and the the ache from the folly of my youth. The unhappiness for settling for less, etc etc. I could have been so much more. But I cant afford a younger wife, sports car, or anything like that. I There is no point in my crying over lost youth it just makes me bitter and resentful. I don't know what I could have been, but there is still time to find out what I can still be.

Sorry litenbrite but I think that I'm the one who's right on this one.Just check out the chat up line which Michael Douglas used when he first met and pulled Catherine Zeta Jones (the lucky so and so) and that example of Joe and Nicola Philpot which I always refer to and those other examples I know of personally in my own life in which I lost out to older blokes with exactly that reasoning.You can't argue with mother nature and I think that your references to low sperm counts and prostate problems etc are only an issue for most blokes long after the point in life where a woman can't realistically be a mother any longer.But I've said it lots of times that in an age gap relationship it's much better for all concerned for kids to have as younger mother as possible but the age of the father is'nt as important.By the way my own Grandfather was around 50 when my Dad was born and he died when my Dad was 14 of an illness which kills people of all ages including children.But my Dad always said that he could live with that easier than losing his mum which he did when she was in her 80's and he was still only in his 40's.But like I said serious health problems are'nt really an issue for most blokes in middle age until much later in life by which time the children are grown up making their own lives anyway.

Not every man wants children Jag. Sometimes they just want attention for themselves. and as far as physical condition... I personaly can still do the splits! Lots of men are crippled with back trouble or Prostate problems. and You keep on saying women age much faster, what absolute nonsense some do, some don't, same with men their sperm count goes down too. and if you have children too old how are you going to be a good active Father with Health problems. Its equal. Some people are looking for love and companionship. Everyone has different reasons, and are entitled. Same as you are entitled to want a young wife so that you can have a child. Im right and you are wrong and thats that, LOL!.

Mike, There is no personal adjenda in this blog, It isnt me putting out feelers to find someone, I have seen this Mid Life Crisis situation going on around me, where people completly seem to change almost overnight. It would be like you with a go go go personality suddenly deciding to give up all the things that were important to you and becoming someone else. For at least a while anyway. Not many men admit when this change comes about that they had a crisis point in their lives. I personaly am not making any judgements about anyone....wether they are right or wrong, just asking if people had experienced this. Enjoy your life...its yours to do whatever you want with it. Kuni, what I am asking, is not about the normal progression of life but sudden change of all of a persons values, You hear of Women that suddenly leave their Husband and kids and take off without warning when they have been a dedicated Wife and Mother for years. They have somehow come to a crisis point in their lives. that is what I am asking. Again I am not judging their situations.

litenbright; I just love your " *sighs* I wonder" pose. You know that old saying "over the hill"??? Well I've never even seen a speed bump. It was just business as usual in the journey called life when I hit "3-0" and "4-0". What you're actually asking is if there are any men that are staunchly settled down "mature" (relative) with a "head on his shoulders" that doesn't want to go off and "start a rock band this late in the game" because you want stability with a "regular (guy)" I've never considered myself "regular". It would be BORING to me and for me. I AM a movie star because I'm starring in my own life and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Searching no normal bloke would turn down an offer by a young girl unless he's already married although even that does'nt seem to count to many of them.However Cary Grant seems to have had some issues stated by some of those who knew him which might explain why he turned her down if that story is true lol and she would have been better off without him anyway if the reasons given by many of his ex wives for his marriage failures are true.But what is certain is that his story is yet more confirmation that women are attracted by married/seperated/divorced blokes with a track record of a failed marriage or more behind them considering how many women were happy (stupid enough ?) to give him more than his one chance in life and the rejected young girl story and the reasons given by his ex wives for wanting out of the marriage might confirm those stories which suggested that he was far from being a normal bloke lol.

some1forme if she was'nt into hugging,kissing and sex how did you manage to give her the kids ??? and who would want to bother with even continuing with dating a girl like that let alone marry her ???.It would be interesting to hear her side of the story because one of my relatives has recently dumped his wife after 15 years of marriage and having two kids for her so called best friend who he's now also given another child.His excuse is that they never really got on yeah right.While at their wedding reception he 'could' have introduced me to his wife's best friend and/or she could have shown a bit more interest in the single blokes there like me instead of the married ones like him but I'll give her full marks for her patience and him none for being a hopeless liar.But a mid life crisis certainly was'nt his issue as usual in my experience.

Some1Form, Thank you for posting. There is a lot to be said for you for putting up with that to stay with your children. In those circumstances Marriage can be lonley.

I will admit to having a permanent mid-life-crisis.I am hoping to somehow have a family at my age.Something I could not do before.Hope I can,however there are obstacles.As far as movie stars are concerned,not all go after younger persons.There is a story about Cary Grant turning down a younger woman,who was interested in him,because he thought he was too old for her.Then,of course I doubt he had many problems getting ladies with his looks.

I have been married for nearly 30 and because we had kids, I stayed with a woman not into hugging,kissing,or continuous sex[10 to 12 times a year].But she cheated many times, I guess the men didn't see much about her sexually in bed either. I was hoping her would find one and just leave me. I paid the bills and she enjoyed her life.

litenbrite that middle aged bloke who pulled that teenaged girl of my own age who I wanted was'nt a film star and it was'nt a mid life crisis as he's still happily married to her and I never even heard of the term until relatively recently and I don't remember any such commment being made about that issue in his case when he dumped his wife for her.And don't forget that one of the last things that Steve McQueen did was to marry a girl of around 25 years younger than him having left a few others before that.As for Jack Nicholson there's plenty of ordinary blokes in ordinary life who've been lucky enough to have his attraction to women one of those being that bloke of 47 who dumped his wife for my 16 year old relative and then dumped her for that other 16 year old girl a couple of years later.Mid life crisis was never a comment made about him either but I did hear plenty of positive comments at the time from lots of both men and women whereas I hear lots of negative comments and often hear the term mid life crisis mentioned as well,although I'm a single bloke, still looking for my first chance in life,looking for a girl of the same age.The term really is just a symptom of the type of double standards applied to some blokes and not others.

Jag, Many men and women with family's couldnt afford fast cars, ect, because they were providing for their families, and when their children grew up somewhat, they want to be free to do what they want. You really can't compare Movie Stars that have a fast lane life to the regular people. Paul Newman remained Married. So he found other things in his life, [and did a lot of good things.] Steve Mcqueen's Mid Life Crisis was Cancer. Jack Nicholson, Well he's Jack Nicholson. and its well known what he does. You may not have had a Mid Life Crisis, but being single, probably didnt have so many responsibility's as a Married man with children. So would have a different frame of mind. Please all of the people that read this I would love to hear YOUR comments, This is not judgemental on my part, Just an interesting subject.

litenbrite.

 

 

 

The whole idea of the so called mid life 'crisis' is based on some bs idea put up by younger people today to seperate their generation from the older one and used by them as a form of ridicule to protect them from competition in the mating game in a world without enough young women in a way which I did'nt have the benefit of when I was young.The whole issue just did'nt exist or apply back then.I still drive and like exactly the same fast cars that I did as a teenager and in my 20's and I still find young girls just as attractive as I did then in just the same way that the older generation did in my time.You never heard of blokes like Paul Newman,Steve Mc Queen,and Jack Nicholson being accused of having a mid life crisis when they were still out there having the life of Reilly with young women,fast cars etc in their middle ages and the difference is that they could pull more young women and drive more fast cars in middle age than I could ever even dream of or get as a teenager.
