    Hey forum. I’m such a slept guy who’s absolutely tolerable to everybodys lifestyle. Idc
    So with that said I have a question that I’d like to ask without offending anyone. Well I’m not sure it is offensive that’s why I’m asking.
    I was talking to my female partner and I mentioned I wouldn’t mind having a older gay friend because they seem more grounded and the younger ones usually seem too sassy for me to relate to. Is this offensive? Is this common? Should I be woken up? I’m all willing to change anything remotely older thinking.

    Stereotypical views.
    Older being more mature and act as a teacher more of a homelyhomo, the younger being the nightclubbing 24/7 party boy carefree and promiscuous finger clicking girlfriend calling hair flicking mouthy bitch???
    Offensive ???

    Sorry if I offend with my reply.

    I mean, you do realise you talk about human beings as if they were just objects for you to have and judge, right?
    Being gay is not a personality.
    And it is not a "lifestyle".
    Also, people are living breathing individuals. You can't just generalize them and put them into boxes that you have created.
    So yes, you might have to go and "wake up" and fix your way of thinking about LGBTQ+ people.

    Tolerable? Lifestyle? Already lost me at the first sentence.

    Sorry but I had to read others responses to decode you post. At my age, 73, much of today’s English usage escapes me. “. . . . slept guy who’s absolutely tolerable to everybodys lifestyle”
    I’m still not sure what a ‘slept guy’ is but I suspect your usage of ‘tolerable’ should have read ‘tolerant’ . Otherwise it appears you’re claiming everybody is absolutely ‘TOLERANT’ of you.
    I have no idea what you mean by ‘sassy’ unless you’re telling us you couldn’t cope with someone younger and smarter then yourself. Then we have the question of what it is you actually expect from a relationship with ‘a grounded older one’.
    All too confusing for me.

    We older guys certainly have our strong points -- but could it be that an older gay man seems less threatening than a younger gay man, in that you feel there would be less risk of inadvertently feeling attracted to him? It's only a possibility, but it's worth considering.
