Move over, middle age — now it’s fashionable to think of yourself as a ‘midlifer’.
As someone wise said, there’s still no cure for the common birthday.
But in your forties, any new decision or change in direction leaves you open to diagnostic mutterings of, "Ah, midlife crisis!
" Life is full of transitions, but when you make them in your middle years, it's labelled a crisis. Can't a guy invest in a new sports car, buy a gold medallion, or take up street rapping without someone linking it to his barely suppressed desire to stave off his despairing awareness of the increasing momentum of speeding time as he tips inexorably toward his own oblivion? But if I can be serious for just a moment; what exactly do we mean by 'midlife crisis'? And what in the name of expanding waistlines can we do about it?
So the only way you really can empathize is to know their side of the story.
Men and women are different in many ways, but we’re more the same than you may think. We all have dating disappointments and horror stories.
