Yep. Cancelled a wedding. Moved to Kentucky and lived in sin with a girl half my age. Got over it. Came home, never looked back. I'm no longer young. I'm not old, but I'm not a spring chicken, or for that matter a summer one..

You are not 'just' a hairdressed Keytone, you are a hairdresser, that is a skilled profession.

Do you think you are having a crisis?

I dont think there is such a thing as a mid life crisis, I think sometime when the kids leave home and you hjave a bit of cash, time and energy you actually start thinking about yourself and your life again, you get to go out and do some of the things you always wanted to do but never quite got around to doing?

from a whiskey drinking, harley riding, truck driving, granny, who grows a bit of :smoke: (for her own use), hangs around with mates half her age (yes, they do like me?) and spends her time living miles from anyone, farming, keeping bees, writing books and been a militant eco activist - na no such thing as a mid life crisis rolling on the floor laughing wink

I am acctually fully liscensed and even a Credited Instuctor in all fields though I am not working in a school at the present time. I thought about it...but...I am not looking for a fast car.. and I am not going out picking up "chicks"...but things do seem like they have sort of faltered over and over...I just wondered what others were feeling...I think I am just a lonely but loving guy. Thanks for showing interest.

I am with Eco, I do not think there is such a thing as a mid life crisis, I believe we change as we become older and if relationships do not work out, and we are on our own, then we do feel loneliness, we do have more time to think, I certainly do.

Mid life crisis is a new term for feelings, we reach our age and we more to look back over, therefore we have more to think about.

I have spent a whole year recovering from a relationship that I thought I would be in for the rest of my life.

I have spent a whole year crying, I moved countries to recover, I changed my career, and it is only now that I am in the process of coming out of that, a recovered and healed person.

Only you can change how you are feeling, go out and do different things, meet different people, now it is easier for us to sit in forums and chat here and I sometimes think it can be soould destroying when we do not meet a person from places like this.

I have stopped looking for a person here, it is not me, I have tried and I find so many people are scared of branching out, it is painful, I am happy chatting in the forums, but I will not let it take over my life. My children are not at home, I can do as I please, there is only me, and my home, and when the children come home, then I have the time to devote to them.

Do not see yourself as going through a mid life crisis, because if you convince yourself of doing that then you will...

I am pleased to hear that you feel you have not had one.

Because there is no such a thing, it is a term that people use to make themselves feel better about their actions and behaviour.

NO. I said I have never had one. But I think that some people do go through a time in life where they need to do something wild,,,go fast,, wear a wig, change their "norm" so to speak, to make them "feel" as though they are not getting "older". anyway, thank you for your input.

I agree, I know a lady at the age of 50 who changed her name, went wild and slept with lots of men...

There is a lot to being a good hairdresser. It is not an easy
course to take. It is a proffession.

Specially male hair dresser can make good money, they often
charge a lot more than the women do.

I believe it happens to maost....even if handled in different manners and modes.....

There comes a time when one wakes up one fine morning to discover that life has been one house of cards which has come tumbling down. Normally round the forties.

It leaves one fuzzed....about oneslef, one's identity, one's achievements, one's faults, one's losses.....and one's future.

What do I do now?

Those who are well versed to change normally go out and do all those things that are still lingering in the sub conscious. Men normally have a couple of years proving to themselves they are still at it....and end up having relationships with much younger women then themselves...I did....


The stronger ones sort out their destiny and come out stronger and better for the experience.

Other not so strong tend to loose perspective of it all....and end up making fools of themselves and their life more miserable then ever before.

cool
