I'm not the chronologically oldest on CR but I seem to be 1 generation ahead of many who have already posted.

My mug shots and semi-autobio are in my profile. Enter at your peril. Just about everything there is open to all. The avi choice suits my id while my ego and super-ego are hiding somewhere in the profile. The age posted is correct (too bad, some things can't be changed no matter how I would like to sugar coat that).

What is the funnest thing you've ever done?
No idea. My friends can enumerate many events that I would see as victimhood.

What are the most important lessons you've learned in life?

Mind over Matter: People that Mind don't matter; People that Matter, don't mind.
Try not to take yourself too seriously. Everyone is human and so are you.
Don't hold grudges. It diminishes you and only you. Learn to forgive.
Life is a never-ending Journey. Learning (as well as un-learning) is a process. There are no easy answers.
True friends are your most important asset. Money and fame, though nice, are fleeting. No one will remember (or care) after 20 years.

What is the most risky thing you've ever done?

Buying myself a job in 1971 and borrowing the capital to do so from my parent (who is going to lend $38K to an untested 23-yr old?).
Ever wonder where under-achieving college grads go after being culled from numerous job interviews? This. Self-employment, best decision I ever made.

Hiking into canyons by myself, risking life and limb hanging on side of cliffs for "the" calendar shot while no one knows I'm there. This was before GPS 35+ years ago.

Married first time at age 58.

What was your first kiss like?

I was all of 8 years old at the time. I had a huge crush on my 13-yr old apartment neighbor Barbara T. She had a slumber party 1 night. All her same age girl friends were there. I got invited to participate in the "Spin the Bottle" contest and I took advantage of that hoping I could get the opportunity to kiss her. The bottle got spun. You can guess the rest of this. The hapless girl designated to kiss me absolutely hated doing it and only did so to save face from her friends who were egging her on to go through with it. No fireworks, no joy.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? 20?

LOL. Trust me, when you get to this stage of the game numbers take on a whole different meaning. Think of the scene in the French gem "Amelie" where the old geezer is at home seated erasing many of his friends, remaining older relatives from his personal phone directory more often than years past. It's a different awareness, sense of being. The beauty of aging is you're no longer overly concerned getting approval from associates, friends. You can be yourself. Some of the habits you acquired over time, for better or worse, are entrenched. Change, if needed, gets harder. It can happen but it becomes harder to accomplish.

Sense of immortality leaves around age 30. Eyesight deteriorates around age 40. Mid-life crises occur mid-30's to late 40's (very interesting, this). Physical stamina heads south beyond 50 (i'm inferring heavy lifting here, not hot sex). Looks recede also.

Compatibility: listen up, this is important. Everyone enjoys choice and experimentation of friends, spouse in the earlier decades of living. However, something magical (not really) happens in your early sixties. Superficiality expectations toward the other are long gone. By now life experience has taught you that personality and a few other important individual characteristics your chosen life partner possesses are the foundation that will make your remaining lifespan enjoyable rather than deplorable and destitute.

If you are still a jerk, a-hole or a bitch beyond the age of 63-65 and still lonely and unattached no one at this stage in life will rescue you from being you. These life mistakes may have been made by someone who may have cared for you earlier and left but such victimhood won't be repeated now. Successful available women don't want to tie up the remainder of their adult lives caring for someone as old or older and/or living in that kind of tyranny. And they won't. Most successful men will commit but usually your estate has to match theirs. Sixties represents escalated pragmatism. A person here cannot make up what they lost or may lose presently 20-30 years into the future. Time is no longer the ally waiting to forgive and forget as you work hard to re-invent yourself. So, if re-invention is going to be your intended saviour at this stage of living, it's too late.

Simply put, if you continually opt to run away from your problems with your partner and do not have a plan in place to remedy this problem get ready for a heavy dose of disappointment by the time you attain this stage of "enlightment". Do make a serious effort to be compatible to someone by mid-fifties.

In 20 years....probably dead, worm food.

Damn.

I think you just won the thread.

Seriously though, you sound like the most interesting person I've 'met'. Plus you know Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain, so you can't be all bad

-Everything is temporary so don't bother caring about most of it.

What is the most risky thing you've ever done?
-Something else that I don't really have an answer to.

What was your first kiss like?
-Hasn't happened and not really interested in it.

-Nowhere good that's for sure.



THAT SWORD. OMG. BADASS.

New here so I guess this is a good way to get to know people. The photos I have on here were taken a few months ago, but I still look the same, I think.



I'm not very funny, but in 10 years I see myself doing the same thing I'm doing now. Except in a nicer basement hopefully.


what is your ethnicity?


I'm Hispanic. Specifically Puerto Rican, but I speak no Spanish unfortunately.


Same here. I grew up speaking "Spanglish", but as I got older and there were no other Hispanics around I forgot most of it from non-use. I did remember enough to take high school Spanish, but my teacher threatened to flunk me if I kept using Puerto Rican dialect instead of Castillian. I dropped the class. I only took it to make my Spanish better to understand my relatives (who most of them still live on the island) better.

Lmao I never even spoke Spanglish. I took four years of Spanish in high school, but that didn't help me understand my relatives. Probably because they tend to speak 2 million words per minute.

Alright, I'll bite.
<--- picture of me
And this one is the one with my girlfriend


What is the funnest thing you've ever done?
- Not sure, but I'm always laughing with my friends. So we're always doing funny/stupid things.

What are the most important lessons you've learned in life?
- Always be nice to others. Sometimes people just need a kind gesture
.
What is the most risky thing you've ever done?
- I haven't really done anything too risky.. I guess riding on a Plane, lol boring i know.

What was your first kiss like?
- My first kiss was hilarious. We closed our eyes and tried to make contact with our lips so she ended up kissing my chin and then she rushed off because her class was about to start. I'll never forget it.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? 20?
- Hopefully still as happy as I am today. More mature, more motivated to do things I should have done when I was younger. Happy with a family too.
