    I was watching a show on tv where two gay guys wanted to get married "so that they could be old men together." And it occured to me-- I don't think I've ever seen an old (> 60 yrs) gay couple. Is this because there aren't very many? Or is it because showing old gay guys just doesn't make fabulous tv?

    There was a somewhat middle-aged 40-something looking couple on Things I Hate About You on Bravo tonight. While that's far from old, that's about the oldest I've seen so far on TV. Despite bitching about their little irritations with each other, they seemed happy together :)

    My cousin (actually, my Dad's cousin) and his partner have been together for 42 years.

    It happens.

    ...and the old queens are too funny. I luv visiting older gay couples; centuries of witty remarks just waiting to snap, crackle, and pop. :rofl:

    They're there for sure but is it just me or do they seem to look "less gay" as ppl age? That is, my so-called gaydar doesn't seem to work on ppl that are older than 60s or so.

    I think that's because gay people over 60 years old got REALLY good at hiding their sexuality because when they were in their 20s, you got arrested for being in a gay club and your family disowned you (like literally "I don't have a son anymore" disown) if you were gay.

    So, yeah... it's not your gaydar... it's their gaydar-defense mechanisms

    Well, it's kind of like Wonder Woman....the older you get, the harder it is to climb into that glass jet and swing that lasso. Same goes for Gaydar. :o :rofl:

    ...but older people will shock the shit out you. Just when you think you know everything, they will drop some wisdom on you. Older queers will suck you off in a way you didn't even know existed. You will be like, "What the.... oo... uum... MmmMmmm... JESUS! MARY! MOSES! I'm Cummin.... I'm Cummin!!"

    Yup.

    In all seriousness though, they ARE out there, I find they generally tend to stick to themselves. Also, keep in mind they grew up in an age where it was *completely* unacceptable.

    ...hehe, I try. The problem he has is that I'm sooo non-available (except while at work). So he only has access to me while I'm in my office, because we all know that every other time, I'm partying. :naughty:
