View Full Version : Over 30 forum?

Maybe a board for people who've actually lived a little and went through some of the stuff other people just wonder about would be good to seperate from the high school, freshman year at college type stuff?

Hard to tell how old people are on here and maybe someone who's 40 with kids and an ex shouldn't have to sift through advice, even though well intended, from someone who's living in their parents basement or in a dorm room.

We could just have a subsection of the forum, I guess. Personally, I'd like the cutoff to be more like 35-40, tho. A lot of just-30s barely have their lives going.

Pity we can't base this on experience... as that seems to matter more.

The 40 year old virgins aren't a myth y'know. Age is not a guarantee of wisdom.

Not all "youngins" are clueless or without valid experiences either.

True. But there aren't many 25 year olds with decades of marriage, child-rearing or career experience either. Or death of a loved one (grandparents don't usually count) or dealing with severe illness. Those kinds of experiences profoundly change one's perceptions of life and aren't usually found in someone that young.

Its like those posters giving advice on marriage or child-rearing but are neither married nor parents. LOL.

I agree w/Primo. Posters should at least have the option of selecting for a subset of replies, like the 'Ask a Male/Female' sections. And like those sections, there's no Forum Police to keep anyone out if they really want to contribute. But its a way of getting more relevant responses. I notice tho, that female regulars posting in the 'Ask a Male' section usually state they are not male.

You're right Aeradalia, but it's very rare. No one's "done it all", but if there's something I haven't experienced, been tested by or learned from, I'm not sure what it is. I generally like to help others, it's very therapeutic for me, but when I do look for advice I wouldn't mind knowing that it's coming from someone who's been around the block more than a few times themselves.

No offense to anyone, hey, we were all young, experiencing things and learning once upon a time too. Having that life knowledge is about the only good thing about getting older I guess :-P

I think that would be a foolish mistake. People in general usually respond to threads where they qualify with experience. If a college freshie or a high school student posts in your thread, in most cases you would be able to recognize it right away.

I think it's easier to weed through the garbage than it is to get members to post in a subforum/new forum section. You'd be eliminating the chance of quite a bit of noteworthy advice.

If you can't tell whether or not the person's been around the block a few times use your judgment to determine the validity of his or her advice. Besides, you'll rarely take only one member's advice into consideration. So what are a couple of derailing high school text speak responses to ya? Are they really that bothersome? I mean, there really isn't even a way, not even age, to measure experience. Besides, everybody has their own personal bias.

IndiReloaded

LOL. Its hardly a 'foolish mistake'. More like an experiment.

This kind of what it meant about the age difference, I think. Only the people under 30 are complaining, btw.

I would have no problems if you young ones also wanted an 'under 30' subforum. People your own age to relate to. Tho, you are right Dopple, in those dating/clubbing threads I tend to just not post b/c I often don't feel I relate enough to contribute.

yes, it will be good to have some 'exclusive' section for older folk to chill out..

Aeradalia
19-10-09, 09:59 AM
I was not complaining... merely pointing out how age can be separate of experience.

It wouldn't be wise to linger with my own "age group" specifically, as they generally do not show significant interest in acquiring more experiences or knowledge than they feel is appropriate for their age. I on the other hand, have come to rely on the older generations to give me clues to what will be coming my way so I may prepare for it. It has proved to be a useful strategy and I'm not keen on relinquishing that quite so easily.

I also like to test out my "theories" while posting here, knowing that the more experienced ones will gladly point out the flaws and give enough clues for me to figure out why such theories are wrong. On rare occasions, I have pointed out flaws in even the more experienced bunch which may not have been possible if I had been summarily dismissed.

I suspect there would be impedements to the sharing of knowledge on this forum if there are distinctions made based on age alone, rather than level of experience.

If it's the level of experience that is needed to be divulged in order to give merit to the advice being given.... all you have to do is ask. I'll be more than happy to not only share my list of personal experiences but also the advice and observations of others that have helped to influence my perspective on life, love, and all else that matters.

i prefer receiving advice from 'older' members..or at least i think they are. I just think that they seem to give more realistic advice as they have lived.
Im 22 so would be excluded..personally i think the way to go would be a selection option to only show replies from those either under or over a certain age...or maybe the amount of posts they have made?
Its not the case that just cause your older you have lived more and have better advice to give (although, decent advice does seem to come from the older members)
I consider myself to be a lot older in mind than i actually am, mainly as i had to grow up pretty quick :P

There are definitely lots of knowledgable 20 something's on here GB.

I just think of threads from people who stumble onto this forum with their life invested in someone, 10-15-20 years, financially tied up with a partner or they have children together and here they are looking for some guidance.

Not sure the kid posting from his dorm room or parents basement, no matter how bright they are can give any advice of relevance, yet they'll post "move on" or something similar without batting an eyelash. Those of us who have that life experience know it's not that easy.

To be honest, after I got used to the forum layout I've never opened the female advice page. I respect what the OP is looking for and there are lots of smart chickas on here to take care of it. If the thread moves towards a more general or male sided discussion a Mod can move it and then the rest of us can help.

That was my thought process on the over-30 sub-forum anyway. Everyone carry-on with the geezer bashing ! :-D

Gigabitch
20-10-09, 06:42 AM
I don't know if decades of life experience necessarily qualifies someone as wise. I've seen some dumbass people post some really shocking things on here- remember that guy a couple of weeks ago that wanted to know if we thought it was okay for him to get with his ex-wife's adopted daughter? He had basically been her dad when she was little, and now he wants to pork her. That dude was sixty two.

I'm only down for it if LA names it "Ask an old Geezer"

And it should be below "Ask a female"

And below that should be "Ask an emotionally challenged teenager"

Between the two, they should put a forum that says "No man's land"

It seems like alot of people register here to address their specific problem and have no intention of sticking around, so I think an over 30 forum might help be a guide for the advice some particular people are looking for.

I came here to (hopefully) help others, even if I can help just one person it will mean alot to me. That being said, only posting here about 2-3 weeks I know the members who have life experience and who don't, but the person only coming here to talk about their problem doesn't have the luxury of figuring everyone out.

For the regulars of course it's a waste of time, I thought they'd kind of realize that instead of complain about it :-P

Frankly I know so many people 30 and up who are immature, insecure, misguided, moronic or otherwise inept, that I outright ignore age. People are sensible or they aren't. Whether a person is 20 or 60 doesn't make much difference. Limiting a forum to people 30+ is pointless, particularly considering how many of us simply hit the new post button and start responding without even checking to which forum the post belongs. And believe you me, even if the 30+ forum were respected you'd still get stupid posts.

Here's an idea: A forum in which anyone may start a topic, but only a select few may respond. You got a sensitive issue to discuss? You want real advice and not just a bunch of random teeny-boppers spouting incoherent gibberish that only vaguely resembles English? A panel of our most sagacious posters--selected not by age but by merit--will be there to provide said advice without distraction or clutter.

That might be a worthwhile addition.

For women I think early 20's look fresh and appealing, late 20's through 30's is best, 40's can still be very hot and 50's beautiful/elegant and still lots of sexiness.

Not sure of your ethnicity Coco, but it looks like you have a youthful skin type. If you live a healthy lifestyle you will be at the top end of the hot one's well into your 40's and look 10 years younger than you are.

I can understand people wanting a 30 or over forum, but how are you going to determine who's of what age?

I am on the younger end of the spectrum and value an older members opinion as much as someone my age.

Its amazing how a 20 year old analyzes a situation and how a 40 year old analyzes it. Two different opinions, but both are rational and legitimate.

It doesn't really matter to me, because I stay out of topics with kids and divorce for the most part anyway. The last thing I want is a spawn of mine running loose in the world right now to begin with.

It makes sense, but this is the only place us young people can get advice from those more experienced.. If there was a section for older people it would leave people like me stuck in the rain. Obviously for the most part older people probably don't care as much about what happens to us but if old/young got seperated, I'd have to rely on others my age for advice. I may not have experience and have been through love, loss, divorce, kids etc., but i feel like i am more grown up than my 18 years would indicate. I try to provide moral support for people and i realize it means less cuz i'm still a kid, but being a part of the "adult" forum is nice..

However, I did notice that Dallas' wealthy seem to be on the leaner side. Usually it's the middle class that tends to have the soggy midsection... and to a certain degree some of the more impoverished as junk food is cheaper than health food.

Not once did I see an obese homeless person though. They were all rather lithe, or skeletal in some cases. Guess lack of food and too many drugs keeps the pounds away. :P

Out here in the sticks though... only the women seem to be obese. The men are generally thinner and wirey.

Vegetables tend to do poorly in a packback in 90+ degree weather. They also bring about food poisoning and other problems on the street. Trust me... for the impoverished on the street or in filthier conditions... 'health food' is not cheaper.

Also... it's a lot easier to steal candies than fruits and vegetables as one is far more available than the other (i.e. convenience stores.. etc.).. so once again, it's more readily available to the impoverished.

Then finally, people are more apt to give out junk food and canned goods to the homeless (which spoil quickly when opened) than they are any other foods for some reason.

When I was homeless... something with sugar was more or less the staple diet as it held out longer, was easier to find, and less likely to make you sick.

Vegetables last much longer than any other type of food you can use for nourishment. Definitely much longer than junk food.

If I was homeless and made $5-$10 a day from begging there's no way I'd eat anything else. I think it comes down to personal choice like Indi mentioned. They choose chips over apples because they fill you up faster not because of their monetary value, they are not thinking about the long term effects.

Hard to focus on eating healthy when you're hungry all the time, uncertain about the future, lacking in dignity, stinking to high heaven, and people look at you like you're something they scraped off their shoes.

Btw, it's very difficult to collect $5-$10 a day (at least in Dallas it was) as the police tend to constantly move the homeless from one place to another. Also when you do finally find a place that does hand out sufficient money, that's when the assholes show up and run off the 'decent folk' by being pushy or damn near nuts.

It's easy to assume all the things you'll do or how things should be when you've never had to actually face such a delimma. Intelligent or not... people don't give out fruits and vegetables very often, they don't store well, they're not desired by anyone you could trade with, and they will make you sick from salmonella poisoning if you keep them around for too long. Anything that needs to be cooked or kept cool is definitely out of the question unless you have reliable ties to someone who can provide those luxuries for you -- and then you have to wonder, at what cost?

It's not about the monetary value of the food... it's about the street value. And "health food" has almost no street value, whereas junk food does. A bag of chips can get you some smokes, some smokes can get you some money, and that little bit of money help you to get a new backpack, clothes, bus pass or whatever else you need -- or more junk food for trading. I managed to get my hands on a hersey bar when I was on the street... traded that for a week long bus pass so I could get to the shelters that were dotted across town.

Maybe a board for people who've actually lived a little and went through some of the stuff other people just wonder about would be good to seperate from the high school, freshman year at college type stuff?

Hard to tell how old people are on here and maybe someone who's 40 with kids and an ex shouldn't have to sift through advice, even though well intended, from someone who's living in their parents basement or in a dorm room.

This is good idea.




Anyway, I just wanted to say that this forum is not in general the best place for advice. many people just give sort of comfortable advice, without really knowing the problem, or just ranting, because their life experience is quite comfortable.
While I can see some good threads about marriage problems, there are actually quite the number of threads that fail miserably. Plus the count of regulars, and self-claimed consultors-therapeuts. There are some good advice on this forum, but mainly it is about stereotypes.

Generally, I assume people come to the forums as a last resort, but this... Idk.

The best advice I have seen, is from a drug forum actually, where people have really gone through shit, had ton of relationships, and none of that middle-class restaurant-date crap. What I see here, are some average people hanging out, but the label gives off the impression this is somewhat serious forum.

Thanks booba, obviously it's a better idea more from a life experience perspective than an age requirement, but after being here awhile I can see it's not necessary. Everyone brings a little something to the table in their own way, but it's pretty easy to see who has life experience first hand and like you said, who's giving a canned response.

Most people that come here for advice are going to do what they want to do anyway, that's how it works in real life. They're hoping they'll find that one post in their thread that backs it up, to make them feel justified in doing it.

Like I've said before, if the time I'm around this board I help even 1 person, that they actually took the advice on experiences I've lived or dealt with and used it, that would make it worthwhile to me personally. I fully realize that pretty much everyone is going to do what they want to do and make the mistakes we cautioned them about anyway.

The upside of that is that they'll learn from their own mistakes and experiences too and hopefully down the road help the next person that will be asking the same questions.

Just b.c ur old and can;t look good in a miniskirt ne moer.

I dun care, there are plenty of dumb 20-25 year olds around. They'll be old too and then figure out how worthless they are as human beings.


You know... when you point your finger at someone else saying how worthless they are... you have three others pointing right back at you.
