Anyone have mid-life crisis and do some strange things that you later regretted doing?

I am not at that point yet but, I remember my moms....and while I think she doesnt regret most of the things she did, I think she regrets one of the results. Her and my younger brother no longer speak.
My mom and I didnt speak for awhile during her crisis either....she finally mellowed out and now we speak and spend holidays together.

Do not look outside your marriage for new and exciting sexual encounters.

I hope Dr Frige "gets it done" for you, but even if he doesn't, please don't stray.

I bet you both really regret leaving the 'd' out.

I'm 41.

I want a motorcycle.

Not a Harley.

My wife wants me to live and not get one.

I have good life insurance and she would be a rich woman if I died.

I want a motorcycle.

What shall I do?

i was just curious....was discussing them with some other friends....and thought I bet this group has some stories

Decide if the motorcycle is the hill you want to "die" on ...and realize your wife must love you (or at least like you a little) if the part about rich woman doesnt sway her opinion.....

Be reasonable. Don't be a squid. Don't get a bike. You'll get off, and will probably hurt yourself a little.

It ain't worth it.

I am a man that appreciates the stability of a strong family and the excitement of what a good life has to offer. This keeps me at home when wrenching and out with the wife when showing it off. Mid-life crisis? Maybe.
Link Posted: 9/19/2005 8:17:17 PM EDT
I think in a nutshell, Mid life crisis happens to people that "grow up" too fast and miss out on childhood stuff...

I STILL feel like an 18 year old kid... I like my toys. I STILL buy and play bass guitar, STILL watch baseball games, and now buy guns. Plus you have to have a spouse that keeps you young at heart.

What happens is that you realize that you are now in your 40's and wonder "Where the hell did my youth go?" So you have that one last major purchase, one fling with another of the opposite sex or purchasing new body parts or paying for the removal of 'excess' body parts.

I have a neighbor that "wasnt 'happy' anymore with her life" and got herself ANOTHER divorce leaving her two sons devastated.

Life is what you make of it. Not what you own, what you 'feel' for that moment or where you live. Its what you feel about yourself and more important, What your loved ones around you feel about YOU.

Now excuse me for a minute, I have to go wake up the wife so she will make me a sammich!!!

I'm going to try to have my midlife crisis next year. I'm gonna get a house and sell off my current car to buy a Porsche Boxster. And I might shave my head, too.


Oh yeah, and I'm only 28 (29 in two weeks) and unmarried. Completely single.

My situation exactly! I still burn rubber in front of the house, drag race my sons at the track, buy guns and cases of tannerite, learn new songs on the guitar, etc. I agree with you in that I feel I've never actually 'grown-up' - whatever that means.

I have no regrets about where my youth went because in many ways, I still have it - along with a great wife and three terrific children who keep me grounded.

The 66 Fastback pictured above with the 400HP 351W, 3.55 posi 9" rear, tremec 5-spd is just icing on the cake.

You should listen to me. I passed on the road this afternoon a guy I knew who was going from work to the gym. His GSXR1000 lay crushed on the left side of the road and he lay under a bloody sheet under the guard rail. He was 40. It ain't worth it.

Well, I was born in a mid life crisis and I will die in a midlife crisis (same one, continuous) I am retired and still don't know what I want to be. I don't have life insurance and my wife wants me to buy a mororcycle. I really do have it good.
