this thread is for you to contribute your opinions on how a man can age well

 

example: what is or is NOT acceptable in fashion or activities?

 

does physical impression determine a man's limitations or possibilities?  Can a man of 40s, 50s, 60s.....ever wear skinny jeans and converse if he is of youthful impression?  

 

activities:  should a man of 30s, 40s, 50s...... engage in long-boarding or riding a razor scooter or bmx bicycle?  What about going to the Discotheque?  

 

which activities/fashion are most acceptable to the mature gentleman?  

 

and what about dating younger women, acceptable, looks ridiculous, doesn't work and will end badly?

 

should he color his hair or go natural sliver/grey?  

 

how best should he enjoy his Silver Years and Age Well?

Is it smoking or nicotine that causes one to age more quickly?

Smoking.  Dip just causes cancer.  Nicotine is just really addictive.

If you get the "not fat, not short, not bald" gene run...you hit the lottery and will look great the rest of your life.

Other honorable mentions: "not wrinkly/saggy skin, not early grey hair genes"

I'm 3 out of 5, so I don't look too bad for my age.

I’m a bit gray but for my early 40’s I look damn good.

If nothing else, people think I’m younger because I’m still fit and have a six-pack.

In today’s day and age of glorifying obesity, I’m a goddamn unicorn.

Dont have kids.  

 

You will be so much more likely to have the time and energy to look after yourself.

living stress free is also a pretty good way. I have an extremely stress free life for someone who works 55 hours a week, so I look decently young for my age. I sleep about 9+ hours a day also. I think that helps. I dont need any caffeine/ coffee in the morning either.

Genetics for sure but the obvious is also staying active in body/mind, don't take in too many free radicals, healthy diet, and consciously maintain low levels of stress.

Grey hair is the sign of the alpha in the animal world......not a weakness.

Dont try to dress like young people once you're past 25. You look like a fool.  

 

Dont do a comb over.  Just shave it when you go bald. 

 

Keep yourself in decent shape. 

 

Take care of your teeth.

Right...but be utterly alone when you get old and live with the fact that you failed to procreate despite 200,000 years of homosapiens reproducing before you.  I dunno, in some ways and at certain times I had thought "gee, it sure would be cool to do whatever I want whenever I want...but kids" 

Now that my kids are older it is all upside.  I'd rather die at 70 with a bunch of grandchildren around than at 90 with no one around.

I'm about to be 40 and I'm a single dad of 2 kids but most people think I'm in my early 20's. So if you don't have the genetics the key things are stay active, stay away from nicotine and drugs, don't be a raging alcoholic, a well balanced diet and plenty of sleep. The older you get the more sleep you'll need. I workout, eat decent, dress decent, and drink socially. Being black probably helps with the aging thing.

I had a girl get my a pair one time. Wore them once and never again. I like those half polyester jeans that are stretchy and soft.

Physical stuff is pretty straight-forward and just reflects healthy habits: don't smoke, don't drink too much, get enough sleep, eat healthy, exercise and avoid stress. Plus get lucky on the genetics front.

The intangibles are much tricker. Learn to dress well. Not 'fashion' bullshit, but quality clothes that are a cut above. Stay current by keeping up with technology - nothing worse than an old fart who can't figure out how to use a cell phone. And if you're single, date as young as you can. Nothing ridiculous about dating a much younger woman.
