Four things you need to know to understand how amazing that is:
1. Plains is crowded with twinks and Cute Young Things. They're everywhere, in the campus gym, at the gay-friendly coffee house, on the street. You go on Grindr for 10 minutes, and 10 guys who just turned 18 (they claim) are sending you selfies of their aroused penises taken in the bathroom while Mom and Dad are at work.
2. But hardly any gay men over 30. Every twink and Cute Young Thing, without exception, plans to move to West Hollywood, Chicago, Denver, or Minneapolis. I can't blame them -- I would too, if it was financially possible. And very few adult gay men move here for jobs -- if you had a choice of the Plains or a big city, or even a middle-sized city, which would you choose?
As a result, the number of gay men over 30 in town is infinitesimal. I know two, and they are planning to move to Phoenix.
It's a weird inverse relationship:
In your 20s, you get cruised, approached, and asked out mostly by guys 10-20 years older.
In your 30s, mostly guys your age, or a few years older or younger..
In your 40s, it's mostly Twinks, under thirty but grown up, living on their own, with jobs and cars.
In your 50s, it's mostly Cute Young Things, in their late teens or early twenties, living in college dorms or with their parents
I don't want to know what happens in your 60s.
4. This particular gym is low on men aged 20 to 70. At least in the mid-afternoon, when I go. A lot of kids (real kids, 12-13 year olds), a lot of elderly retirees, but few others. So seeing any guy in his 40s is unusual, and meeting one who is gay and interested in going home with me is as rare as meeting a gay Jewish Bushman.
I didn't even see him working out. It was my running day, and I got there late, when the treadmills are typically taken, so I made a beeline for the first open one I saw, and didn't get off it for 45 minutes. Then I did some quad, thigh, bicep, and tricep sets, never going into the free weight room.
