No offense to any of the regular members here at the 'Dope, but the demographic hereabouts seems to skew a bit on the young side. I still enjoy browsing here from time-to-time, but I often feel like the old fart at the party.
Anyone know of a forum/messgae board targeted at those in their 40s or older?
A fair amount? Sure. An overwhelming amount? Not even close. My guess (based strictly on opinion and not on any actual research) is that the average age hereabouts is 24-ish.
No big deal; I deal with tons of people who are younger than myself on a daily basis, but at some point I’m going to want to talk about Blue Oyster Cult rather than Coldplay; books and films rather than MySpace or Twitter. I’m a 44-year-old parent, husband, father and artist, 70s survivor, 80s model teenager; at some point I’m going to want to connect (at least in the internet sense of the word) with people who have more-or-less similar reference points.
I think it’s higher than that, though with turnover it’s harder to get a handle on it. After awhile all these years blend together for me and I forget who is here and who has left ;). But I believe when we’ve had polls before ( obviously not very scientific ) the average was more in the 30’s range. Didn’t have much look searching for them though, so maybe I’m misremembering.
OP: Are you kidding? I’m in my early 20s and I feel too young for this place sometimes. :-/
I can rarely contribute to any threads where people shares cool/exciting stories because I don’t even have any (Yes partially my own fault for not getting into drunken bar fights now and then).
I can’t contribute any new or fun music because I’m a classic rock fan and everyone is here complains of having heard all the bands for decades. Plus the newer stuff I like is too “young” for everyone and they’d run me off their lawnif they could.
I can’t contribute any fun stories about old computers because my oldest computer was from '99. Same with video games, my oldest was SNES.
I can’t even give any good tips for orally pleasuring a woman. I mean, I’m the one who asked for tips in that thread!
