The Declining Desire Of Older People To Engage In These Activities (20 GIFS)

"The desire to want to be famous/well-known."

 

"Sleeping anywhere other than my bed"

 

"There was a great standup comedy bit I heard one time where someone said something to the effect of “I always thought it was weird adults didn’t have sleepovers when I was a kid, now I’m an adult and the concept of sleeping on my friend’s couch sounds worse than actual torture”"

"Bars, clubs, anywhere there’s a lot of people"

 

"Yup. Give me a nice neighborhood pub where I can sit down, have a drink, and actually hear my friends talk."

 

"Sugar. There’s just too much of it in everything, and I would enjoy it more if there was less sugar and more flavor."

"Getting super drunk."

 

"I stopped getting drunk 6 years ago after I had a hangover and thought, “I’m too old for this sh#t.” I gave myself a three drink MAX limit after that day."

 

"New fashion/clothes.

I haven’t bought anything in a while, not because I’m poor but because I just don’t like anything I see. Plus clothes have become such poor quality, I rather just keep my old stuff."

 

"Keeping up on pop culture."

 

"Hard/impossible mode on video games. Like, I just worked 8-10 hours. I want to actually see the end of this game’s storyline before I turn 65, please."

 

"Competition.

If I play a board game I’d rather just have a good time than taking it super seriously and get upset when I lose. Playing tennis I’d rather hit around and not swing dicks around to see who can win.

Don’t get me wrong, I want to win, and I’ll try to win. But I just don’t care if I lose. Thankfully those I currently surround myself with feel the same. We’d rather try our best, but not take it so seriously we end the day getting upset because we didn’t play a perfect game."

 

"As I’ve grown older and wiser, I’ve come to realize that the pursuit of material possessions and the constant need for external validation have become increasingly unappealing to me. When we’re young, society bombards us with messages telling us that we need the latest gadgets, the trendiest clothes, and the flashiest cars to be happy and successful. But as we age, we start to recognize the emptiness of these pursuits."

 

"Homesteading. I grew up on a farm and always had dreams of going back to country living. I’m now inching towards my mid-40s and just keeping up with a moderate house and a medium size backyard leaves me exhausted and with at least one joint or major body part hurting. Edit: mistyped my age"

 

"Aging"

 

"For some reason my favorite snacks just don’t hit the same no more"

 

"Taste buds change as life goes on."

 

"Going out with other couples. I’d rather sit at home and watch TV."

 

"Music festivals"

 

"I saw something the other day about putting concert tickets on LAYAWAY. I wanted to kick a festival organizer in the nuts so hard he’d taste it. I’m old enough to remember when we bought concert tickets on minimum wage Mall jobs!"

 

"Staying up late"

 

"For me personally it’s being in a relationship.

I’m in my mid-30s. I live alone with my two dogs, and while I definitely have loved ones I care deeply about, my life is essentially all about me. My interests. My hobbies. My goals.

I love it!"

 

"People. Why are there so many?"

 

"Anything where I risk injury if I fall, crash, whatever.

I remember being so fearless on skis, roller skates, skateboards and all the things when I was younger. Now I just think of how I could f@#k myself up.

Having a keener sense of your own mortality s#cks."

 

"Work"

Curg,

I agree with them, and your hypotheticals won't change my mind. Living with a woman means you basically have to give up everything you like and only live for her needs. Nothing is worth all that anymore. I now have more time, more money, more joy, less stress, and my life is much more fulfilling. I only wish I'd realized it sooner.

Kimberly,

Not true at all.
You sound like an incredibly selfish person. That’s probably why you’re alone.

Laffie,

Women are the word "selfish" in anthropomorphized form, and you definitely sound like a woman. You're upset because he chose to stop giving women everything they want all the time and it irritates you to the core, doesn't it?

Kimberly,

If that's your view on relationships you probably had the wrong women.

#18 we just tried that, the politicians and talking heads tanked the economy and made life miserable for those who were surviving by whining about how many people are dying

The fear that I won't succeed and I would be punished for it faded over time. I was told "work hard for others and give selflessly" by adults who were narcissistic, selfish, and manipulative. So, abuse was common until I escaped.
