nickdaisy: So they surveyed retired military. I wonder why they suddenly became happy at 50? Anyone?
K3rmy: You would be grumpy too. What is the equation of how young you can date? Half your age plus 7 years? Who the hell wants to bang a 42 year old?/cue pics of cute 42 year old women in 3. . .2. . .1
Rik01: Past a certain age, not only does a guy discover that his 'eternal life' is winding to a close, but his body has begun to not only fail, but turn ugly. He's not going to draw any interesting stares from 26 yr old chicks if he prances around on the beach in swim trunks.Plastic surgery is mainly for the face, but from the neck down, things sag alarmingly. Plus, he'll have discovered that his Soldier is no longer so quick to stand and salute and be ready for duty and often might need the assistance of a little pill. Plus, if he manages to fire his gun, it's no longer the nearly religious experience it used to be. Not by a long shot.If he wants to date, the majority of ladies within his acceptable age bracket are starting to look like his Mom. That makes things creepy. Others will look like his grandma.Though, his brain will be locked into a self image of himself when he was a round 32 and his interests will fall into the same bracket, meaning a lot of disappointments.If married and truly in love, things will be better, but the youthful, bright, often delightfully impulsive and frequently surprising bride of wondrous beauty will probably be hidden under a layer of fat, her smile lines have gravitated into a scowl and her face has started to melt.I'd love it if we could freeze the outward appearance of aging at around 40 at least. It'd make things a whole lot better.
lohphat: I'm 48 and already farked.
baconbeard: I'm 45. I recently lost a ton of weight for the first time in my life and now women of all ages are throwing themselves at me. Life is good,

Abox: When I hit 70 I'm going out in a hail of gunfire and I'm taking as many of you as I can with me.
oukewldave: I'm 32 and I already hate people like I'm 75.
Jimmysolson: Abox: When I hit 70 I'm going out in a hail of gunfire and I'm taking as many of you as I can with me.Well, we all need something to look forward to.No offense intended, but I look forward to you dying before your 70th birthday.

Curious: 72 this summer and while not the life of the party i still enjoy many things. the COPD and finances means not doing what i planned at 25 but hey, i'm alive so the grumpiness goes away pretty quickly.a platitude for the youngsters: you're as happy as you make yourself.
NoGods: Does anyone else find the diminishing sex drive somewhat liberating?

cynicalbastard: Don't kid yourself, after your first back and/or knee surgery, 40 can suck donkey balls too. By 50, you're on first-name basis with every form of joint pain known.
