Confront your fears You're never too old to find love, but that's not a message gay men hear very often. After years of "working on ourselves" and fighting social prejudice to gain self-esteem, many of us struggle to keep it. The gay community's — OK, let's get real, mostly the gay male community's — ageism. Who'd want you when there's some 30-year-old hottie turning everyone's heads at the gym? Focus instead on being your best self, no matter what your age."Within the gay community, negative stereotypes reinforce the belief that gay relationships are based solely on physical attraction, and that once youth starts to fade, we are unlikely to have any real or lasting relationships," says Rik Isensee, author of Are You Ready? And remember that the most important characteristics — loyalty, humor, intelligence and compassion — are ageless.You're quick to assess if your date wants the same level of relationship as you, whether that's casual or committed.You recognize dysfunction and mismatches faster now than you did when you were younger.
I can think of something far worse than being single, gay and older. Dave Singleton works for AARP Publications and has written two books and numerous columns on dating and relationships.
The truth is that sometimes when you want a relationship so badly, you draft the first reasonable candidate.
Or you're miserable because there's no prospect on the horizon. Don't settle for anything less than chemistry, shared values/lifestyle/goals, trust, and a growing and abiding friendship.
But that doesn't mean you should be rigid and inflexible. Chat with a guy who isn't your "type" and stretch your boundaries.
And so what if he doesn't immediately strike you as hot and sexy?
