Hookup in your 40s 50s and beyond

opinion

According to some, a gay man who has lived for half a century makes a reliable partner. But just how far can a good career, life experience and grey pubic hair take you these days in the Hookup in your 40s 50s and beyond digital dating scene? Before you pass judgement however, take yourself Hookup in your 40s 50s and beyond to your early 20s. What Gym-Buns has overlooked, however, is that when it comes to good sex, experience counts for something and those so-called relics have had three decades of practice — meaning the young guns may be missing out on the ride of their life.

It does feel a little disempowering though as I never felt conscious of ageing before I put myself out there online. Online dating is indeed a numbers game and it seems there are fewer men online in their 50s than there are those in their 20s, 30s and even 40s.

A good match online goes beyond physicality alone. In his microscopic profile pic image, the guy in question looks as good as anyone can at that low resolution rate. However, his opening line sends hope plummeting to the ground in flames.

However, for many mature guys, apps and cruising sites provide the modern day platforms where a potential relationship may be patiently waiting in the wings. While digital platforms are where so many of us seek love, lust and laughs, meeting humans in the real world remains as a viable option.

If you like the outdoors, join a gay hiking or walking group, and meet men while you get fresh air and exercise. Focus on smaller parties, events centred on hobbies and interests, and volunteer opportunities. Perhaps the final word on ageing should come from an year-old icon who remains at the forefront of a youth driven industry. Your email address will not be published. Skip to content separator.
