I have noticed that as I age, people who are roughly my age, are not as attractive.

Many people have not been aging 'well'.

It seems to me that most people my age, have not taken care of themselves. They tend to be overweight, heavily wrinkled and are often wheelchair bound.

I don't find this to be the case. In fact, there are many times now I'll watch a movie or TV show from back in the day, and back then I thought of the lead actress or actor as "old" (she was probably middle aged) and therefore not attractive, but when I watch it now I think "Wow, she was really beautiful".

I like this. Same here. I see beauty in the lines of older faces now.

I really don't know if mankind is turning out more unattractive people or is my age a factor? Even those starring in movies, it's rare I find anyone attractive in movies today. Unless it's Jim Caviezel or Keanu Reeves in it.

Is this something that happens when you get older, and what will it be like when I turn 80?
Maybe I do play while out, but not consciously, usually in my easy chair and it's just a stupid game.
I never really noticed that in the general public, but when I play at home, I did it knowing there isn't a snowballs chance of it ever becoming real. Just a bad habit and a game.

Tho I'm a bit different. Usually people were breast fed and got the very valuable hormones we all need .

I didn't til recently, so I took some Liposomal Colostrum, and I took it as another supplement to my healing regimen, cuz I had a stroke in late 2017, and what I noticed was, when seeing a taped old show, that a "no" suddenly became a "yes". I never thought that would happen.....It was quite shocking for me.

It's that paradigm shift I got last year from taking the colostrum, but my holistic dentist noticed I was healing better than expected from some extractions, so I got a witness to the healing, tho just me noticed the other change. And my perception shift, which was weird at first, has co-mingled rather well in a year.

I'm the same guy, but different.

In my 20's, I thought women 18-20 were hot.
In my 30's, it became women 18-30.
In my 40's, well, you get the pattern.
Now I'm in my 60's and find gals from 18-60 looking pretty hot.


My world is filling up with good looking women!
Interesting development. I like it.
For me, I have been attracted to women of all ages and colour.
While serving in the 'Desert in '03 - '04, I was with soldiers half my age. When the question of who was hot, they named persons of public renown, all of who were under thirty. When they asked who turned me on I said:
Martha Stewart
To which a twenty-three year old said I liked MILFs. It was my first time hearing the expression.

This.

Who has time for games.

I can understand why some people stay single forever and choose to go throughout life, without a partner. I can see it clearly now. A lot of those people are happier.

At 53 it seems like the older people get. They give up on their teeth, hair, body and just let their gut hang out. THey allow hair to grow out of their ears and eyebrows. They allow their teeth to get yellow and their feet to get gnarly. They also seem to lose their conscientiousness and manners.

People forget Martha Stewart started life as a photo model. Once I mentioned to a young woman in my office that she looked like Elizabeth Taylor. She was insulted that I would compare her to an elderly hag. Of course, I had a 20 year old Elizabeth Taylor in mind. I had a similar response from mentioning that a young woman looked a lot like Katherine Hepburn.
