Do you consider yourself in your middle years? Is that how you are perceived by others? I am shortly going to be writing a column for this age group and would be really interested in any feedback you might wish to give me about life as a middle ager. Examples of concerns may be things such as:
Are you able to buy clothes which reflect your style?
What types of holidays appeal to you?
What books do you like to read?
Are you able to join in with local exercise classes, gyms, etc or are they aimed at the wrong age group for you?
How much of an outcast do you feel in some environments? ie, Discos, bars etc
How difficult is it to meet people in middle age and why? Where do you meet new people? How is dating as a middle ager?
The above are just some of the things which have come up in recent conversations with other middle agers. There have been many more. Please let me know what you think, what experiences you have had, etc.
I haven’t been writing on my blog over recent weeks for a number of pitiful reasons. Sometimes life gets in the way of my writing and no matter how hard I try, when I eventually manage to sit down to write my eyelids fall with exhaustion. Now things are settling down once again with family celebrations over, medical matters dealt with and the chores just about finished and by next week I should be back in full writing mode.
Don’t forget to let me know about your middle age experience.
