You know people are just saying that to be nice right.

Everyone likes to think they look way younger than their actual age but they're probably comparing themselves to the most bruised and battered of their age group.

Interesting take, but it happens so often that it's statistically way outside of your theory.

Nice try, thought.

Yes, genetics is, by far, the biggest indicator of life expectancy.

But, still, those who stay active and make the effort to keep care of themselves really do separate themselves in many ways from the ones who don't make any effort at all.

Get used to the younger generation addressing you as “sir.”

You go from looking like a cousin, then a cool uncle, then a friend’s dad, then a friend of your grandpa...

My friend went with his dad to a Pearl Harbor reunion, he said babies didn’t have anything on these guys in the looking alike department.

No way... divorced last year and just turned 43 this year. Online dating was fun as hell and I met a great girl. Dating is not like it was 15-20 years ago!!

My advice if you are in your 40's and single.. Condoms, buy lots of condoms!!

PS. Amazon has the best prices

I have a feeling that's bull. While I'm sure 50 year olds think they have a shot with the ladies in their 30s, in reality they're gonna end up with someone in their 40s or 50s.

I think it is tougher on women than dudes. There is some dating age bias in everybody, but I think Guys hold on to a lot more.
