I don't think it matters what age you are when you think life isn't worth living anymore. If you've ever watched one of my favorite movies, "The Shawshank Redemption", you might remember the lines: "Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things". When a person loses all hope in life, that's when he might give up on life. But as the most famous line from the movie says "Get busy living or get busy dying". Right now, I'm still getting busy living in my fifth decade.
That looks like menopause to me. Women usually really fall apart right after. She did keep it together for a long time though.
If the only passions and values that give sole meaning to your life are physical good looks, active, prolonged sex and dating young ladies, and then, really active sports, in that case, well, I guess 50-60 is the cut off line for 'most' people.
If you have other interests that give equal or greater meaning to your life such as art, music, writing, travel for culture and discovery, religion, philanthropy/politics, business/money as well as a family that you are already raising, be it real one, or foster one, then you have plenty to live for well into your 100s.
A brain is a terrible thing to wash!
Think physical vs. spiritual. Our bodies rot away in older age. But the body is just a temporary vessel for the soul. I think the key to contentment in older age is to move focus from physical enjoyments of life to spiritual development. I know that may be incomprehensible to many, but haven't you ever met a much older person who seemed genuinely happy and at peace with life? What do you suppose their secret is? The world if full of miserable young people, some of whom have looks, money, the works. Happiness and contentment are what make you blessed in life. So perhaps there's a lot more to that than the means to be in union with a beautiful woman or live a hedonistic lifestyle. I suppose a lot depends on what you open yourself to believe about what's beyond this short life on earth.
Most young American guys can't get decent looking young girls without paying and are too poor to move to move to Eastern Europe, so what exactly is lost by aging? Will hookers suddenly stop serving you or give you worse service? Will your cock stop working? Will brain plasticity make sex less enjoyable? I don't get it.
Youth is an opportunity wasted on the young, so many of whom squander it away and others who due to circumstances largely beyond their control (stuck in Anglosphere, etc.), do not get anything close to maximum benefit from it.
As an older person who has taken good care of himself and is lucky enough not to have genetically inherited health problems, one who perhaps practices good exercise and eating habits plus some positive spirit building may not be missing much relative to so many young guys today. If he feels ok physically and does not have unmet sexual desires (kinda like before puberty), the biggest difference is that he will probably escape the world much earlier and that might be a good thing, who knows.
Very good point, if you are undesirable at 25 and cant get any how much worse can it get??
In fact aging comes as blessing for such guys(80% of men) as with age your libido and desire for women goes down
Hookers don't mind and Filipinas prefer old men
If your whole life focuses on participating in sports activities and hedonism and by the time you reach 50 or 60 realize you can't function as well as you use to, then yes, you may as well make an exit, if that's your choice and destiny.
Many people who accept the degradation in their physical abilities as normal evolution can make adjustments and compensate and pursue new interests and avocations. That's called reinventing yourself. These people continue to live happy, productive and purposeful lives well into their 80s.
