I Am Entering Mid-life

For men and women who are dealing with getting older 53 People

    As I have got older I find myself increasingly

    willing to experiment with new sexual experiences. All of a sudden the riskier or more taboo the more I want to try it. Things that used to be no go areas when I was younger now seem exciting. I sometimes scare myself. Is this just a natural part of life?

    Letting Go of the Girl

    Good Afternoon!  I am happy to be here and I am excited about entering  midlife.  There I said it and guess what?  I mean it. The more I speak to my friends a common topic arises about about letting go of old habits, what does 40 look like...

    Actually, Um... I Guess I'm There?

    Mid-life

    Well, I think at 49, I'm already in mid-life, but I don't feel it.  I am hopeful, but also fearful about the future.  The last 20 years have been dismal.  I look back I see failure, or just plain nothing.  I hid from the world, the pain, the sorrow.  Now...

    I have been with my partner

    for over 20 years and he used to get jealous when I flirted with other men. Recently he told me he would actually enjoy watching me with another man. He says it doesn't mean that he doesn't love me anymore - he just wants to try new things before we get too old. I think he is...

    I'm arriving at 45 in just a few months.

    I see the occasional grey in my hair. Do I feel old? Not really. I still have my beautiful long waist hair that's dark blond with stray grey in it. I still keep up with my pre-teens and my high energy dog. I still laugh but now I have to be careful because of those oops...

    A Weird Time

    I was filled with lots of confusion. Things I knew certainly, I no longer believed. I voted way differently than I ever had. I spent a lot of time visualizing what life was going to be now that my main job was no longer "dad". I became more assertive and less private. I used...

    Frustrated With Life

    I'm fairly happy in my life. Decent job, good wife, health is stable but at the same time a lil unfulfilled. As a kid I lived a sheltered life at least my mom tried. I was a sickly child with few friends and that made me a very quiet and solitary individual, I met and stayed with...
