    Someone said that a woman's life ends with 30. I fear that might be true in today's society. Women over 30 are seen as old, unattractive, undesirable, etc. That's because we live in a very superficial world that defines beauty as physical attractiveness and value as "sexual market value". So as a woman, I obviously dread reaching that age, especially the prospect of ending up single and childless. If I was already married with children, I'd probably feel differently. When I think old age, I inevitably think loneliness. As some have said, our culture has come to ignore or even despise the elderly. I suppose it has something to do with consumerism, excessive capitalism and the corporate culture. I hope that when I'm old and gray, as the saying goes, I won't be lonely.

    I'm 84 and enjoy life to the fullest. My wife is 80. I have one daughter, 2 grand kids and 2 great grand kids. Old age aches and pains do not stop me from doing anything.
    I'm an avid gardener and enjoy working with my hands on a lot of home projects. My foundation is rooted in God, I can do all things in Christ Jesus.

    Who hits menopause at 30? The phrase is more like "when you're 40, you're over the hill". They say 50 is the new 40, but if you're worried about SMV, you must be really out of touch. MILFs have been in for at least 20 years and there's since arisen the phenomenon of GILFs, believe it or not, lol. Most old and gray ladies I know of are social butterflies. It's usually men who're more reserved and less pitied.

    I think it's more that a girl's life ends around 30, as she starts losing her advantage over men in terms of desirability, and stop getting things in life "for free", so to speak. It's only if the value she has to offer is intimately tied in with her SMV, that her life quality may take a noticeable hit by turning 30. And even then, many women can stay attractive and physically desirable to most men way into their 30s and some even in their 40s.

    One thing I've noticed, is that among the parents of my friends and acquaintances who have divorced, it's usual that the mother finds herself a new man, while the father often stay single indefinitely, which speaks against the notion of women losing their relative desirability in their 30s, even when they have kids.

    But as you say, the best remedy against becoming 'old' and fall by the wayside, is to have a family of one's own.

There will be younger ones to love them when they are older and mourn and remember them when they are gone. And they will live forever.

    So those of you who do not have kids yet, HAVE THEM. Forget the excuses, especially the money-based ones.
    This is true and common sense, but a lot of people (men) will never have the option to have children. Take me for example. I have been looking for a person to start a family with for most of my life now. It is not my fault that I have not and will probably never find that person. For all practical purposes, I am in the same situation as an infertile woman with regards to reproduction.

    It is unfair to lump together the people who are unable to have children with those who simply won't out of inconvenience or wrong ideology/priorities. I think most people here without children fall into the former category.


    As to the topic of this thread: I look pretty much the same as in my prime years, but the number is in my head and the thought that it only goes downhill from here is depressing. I did nothing wrong. I did not deserve this. I did not squander away my youth. It is unfair. Sometimes I daydream about going back to my 20s and "winning" somehow, even though the environment has only gotten worse with all the immigration madness and the task even more impossible. Sometimes I feel like becoming a researcher and try to stop/reverse the aging process. Aging has to be treated like a disease, and many recognised diseases indeed result from aging.

    I prefer to call it maturing rather than aging. There are men who peak in their teens and there are men who peak in their forties or even later. I consider myself to be the latter kind of man as I still look quite young for my age, so I am looking forward to the future, although I'm enjoying youth and its advantages to the fullest.

    I can understand the concern of some women on here though as it's true that their desirability, especially if their genes are bad, goes rapidly downhill past the age of thirty or so. If you are a woman, you should try to put yourself out there as early as you can and speak to that man you find interesting as long as you are young and pretty, even if in this society the lads are supposed to approach the lasses. You might find a really good man who is willing to settle down with you, and no matter what the media or celebrities or anyone else says, children will make you happy. Don't focus on your career as much as on marrying a good man of good character, preferably similar to you in race and ethnicity, who is willing to settle down and have children.

    As I became older, I was healthier in my 30's since I had more time to work out, enjoy a hobby, and explore the outdoors. I finished my education, established a career to support myself, and had more time to date now so the later twenties were harder times for me. During my late 20's, I also had a failed engagement after 3 years, and it delayed me to date again for another 3 years. Today, I have three children with my husband starting in our thirties. Overall, I think people devalue mental age and mostly focus on physical beauty. There is an enjoyable maturity and a silent wisdom that comes with age if you make the right choices and not give up in life. It is content, a form of happiness. The 20's desires and disturbances begin to calm as you pave a life out for yourself. I think better at older age and am more content with my life. You find a place in life, but there are always new struggles after you seem to meet other goals. Now, we are searching for a better place to raise our children. I see life as a continuum until death and has its surprises too.

    Not age is the challenge, it is losing certain abilities (and, especially for those wife- or sugardaddy-hunters, traits). So, much of it is in your own hands. First of all, when you are becoming limited, second, how you cope with it.
    "All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible."

    I am now 65, and have my share of problems. I no longer can lift heavy and train hard...hurts my neck and I don't recover like I used to. But I am retired, now, and I am the happiest I've ever been with my wonderful wife. As I look at the future I am glad to have most of my life lived. I am now dedicated to being the best husband possible and living with honor so I have no shame when I meet the Elder Kin and the Gods.
