Generalizations about a single, 45-year-old man


Another installment of the Generalization Chronicles


Here are some generalizations about single, 45-year-old men.


Something is direly wrong with him.
Spiritually, emotionally, financially, physically, mentally…any which way the feminized mass media propaganda machine can twist the truth to meet its own end.


He is no longer porcelain pretty boy pure and there can be a slightly- to harshly weathered tone to his physical existence.
Gray is usually potruding in light to heavy streams of betrayal.


He dresses in that in-between world of fashion which is too self-conscious and good-sensed to be overly youthful, but timid and bashful enough to avoid the trappings of senior bland inconspicuousness.


Well-established in his career, he is not prone to rash decisions or choices. Yet, he fights the constraints and strictures of antiquated society. He attempts to break the barriers down but at the end of the day, he comes home to drooping eyes and quivering facial creases.


He likes young girls, preferably in the 19-22 year-old range.
But he does not have the looks, money, fame or notoriety to spontaneously bang such women and he will essentially default to the “old creepy man” perception in their prized eyes.


Painfully, sadly, oppressively, he realizes the countdown has begun.
That 45 is the “new starting line” to the hazy incomprehensibility that is mortality.


Socially and sexually desperate.


The initial tinges of grayness and seniority. Weathered but in a desperately youthful manner.
Fully immersed in mid-life crisis and every move, gesture, word, utterance, motive, is thus explained as an extension of this.


Perceived desperation is disguised playfully as a pre-ordained weakness.
He cannot win for the eyes of society bemoan his status.
Yet, he is in a good position for he still garners the raw sexuality of his younger days but channeled and directed in a piercing arrow of temperance and caution.


Perhaps desperate to reclaim youthful vigor but jaded enough to know this was never possible, even when he was young. At 45, he tries to be younger than he was when he was…young.
