Men of a Certain Age

Last night, TNT premiered it’s new one-hour show, Men of a Certain Age, starring Ray Romano, Andre Braugher, and Scott Bakula.

I haven’t seen the pilot show yet but it certainly looks promising, if just for the peek into a fictional male psyche, alone. There are a lot of things men simply don’t speak about publicly (or to womenfolk): their insecurities, frustrations, or motivation of why they do what they do.

When it comes to getting older, men are notorious for reacting in the most bizarre and outrageous ways*. Hey, I’m not judging, I’m just saying. What is it about getting older that “men of a certain age” seem to struggle with the most?

That will probably be the most captivating part of the show, gaining some insight into what some men have to deal with as they get older. Not to mention, how women and their relationships with us fits into everything.

After dating a younger guy, I admit that there are differences in dating “men of a certain age”  but I wouldn’t necessarily say it is better or worse. In my experience, it seems that the maturity level of a man determines how well (or poorly) he handles a dating relationship. What do you think?

Ladies, have you noticed any differences in dating men in their 20s versus dating men in their 30s, 40s, or 50s? What were they? How did you relate to them in terms of communication?

Guys, is there a particular age that a woman should take a man more seriously when it comes to relationships? How do you think a man’s age impacts his dating behaviors? At what age do men usually change how they relate to women?

*Disclaimer: Of course women react to growing older in bizarre and outrageous ways too. It’s all about the fellas today, though. You’re welcome.

i guess “aging men” is not a sustainable topic? :(

A few men that i think have age gracefully and the older the get the better they look.

Samuel Jackson, Will Smith, Sean Coonery, Pierce Brosnan, Richard Gere
Ice Cube…LL..and found out Russell Simmons is 52 y/o…

Oh, my grandaddy aged gracefully to…he had white hair, salt n pepper beard with chocolate mocha skin…wore suspenders with his suit..not like Mr. Brown though…

One of my bff’s was telling me about a spray that you can buy at ‘novelty’ stores that will numb the back of your throat and it will stifle the gag reflex when you go deep. Anybody know the name of it?

all this talk about aging. if you keep living you’ll be there too, and sooner than believed. get off of looks and body parts. have more going than that. work that your name is written on high because our stay down here is but for a brief moment. where we’ll spend eternity is what we should be concerned about.

I know as I have gotten older I have been more saught after, cause I’m dead sexy and very care free. As for an age for a man to be more desired, I’d say thats on the ladies, I know men older than me in their 40’s that act like they are 2 so good luck on that one. As age of women that I desire that’s even tougher since you’re all crazy. Go figure

P.s Those guys in the picture look like straight up homos.

Well lurkerit is not that serious. Plus I know it is me if I see some pictures of some dudes at nine in the morning they need to be hunks not punks. Hey just because they were not eye candy to me is not a valid reason to start ranting about it….

I can only imagine the side effects and what that mess is made of…monkey nuts and chipmunk azz stifle the gag reflex when you go deep. Anybody know the name of it?
:shock:

I’m sure it’s made of the same type stuff as the throat spray – Chloraseptic – that is made to numb sore throats.

Of course, Melo, I am less than surprised at your adolescent response. Maybe I will buy a bottle to send to Queen.
