I Am Entering Mid-life

For men and women who are dealing with getting older 57 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?

    Mind Gunk

    the thing with me and growing old is junk tends to accumulate in my brain.  bad memories, stupid things i've said or done, random unpleasant experiences.  i'm going about my day and they shoot up at the slightest provocation causing a sneezing fit, a rash, or a sharp...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
