Things Every Gay Man Should Do Before Turning 40 ;o)

OhNo40PinkGetting older is never easy and fun. For many gay men the idea of turning 40 is nothing short of terrifying. Well I am getting there very soon and I don’t feel like almost 40. My body changes a bit, priorities change and your mind and interests change too. I am a lucky “boy” who has very good genes, which makes me still looks younger. (Or so I am told and not for just getting me in the sack LOL) I don’t fear the big “4”, but I would have loved to stay 29 forever. The candles on my birthday cake keep saying that anyway ;o).

There is a 40 things list that at least every gay guy should have done before reaching the age 40 years old. I though “hmm why not check that list and see how well I did? What have I done with my life? What have I accomplished?” Remember I came out when I was 25, but still after checking and crossing of on the list, I can say “Ooops I did a lot haha”!!! And for the things I didn’t do, I still have one0 day left LOL. Be surprised what’s on the list and check it yourself. Your life experience checklist will continue to grow as we get older off course. And remember don’t take yourself like this list to serious…

  1. Really ? #19
    Could you possibly be more offensive. You narrow minded bigot.
    How about mixing things up a bit and fucking a racist white British narcissist.

    1. No, but is regarding to me and I am white….So for a black guy, it would be with a white guy…It is just a funny list, nothing serious. I am not a bigot, I am self a mixed race, so why should I be a bigot and if you read better the rest of my blog or content than you can see I am no bigot or narrow minded. Just lighten up a bit and see it as a fun thing and self mockery for someone who got 40 today!!!
