Hookups are easy for gay men over 40, or over 50, or over 60: the twinks line up to get you into bed. But relationships are a different story: everyone your age is partnered or happily aromantic, and the twinks don't want to partner with someone who talks about how all telephones used to be landlines. Or, so I've heard; I had no trouble whatever finding dates in my 40s and 50s.
That disconnect with my lived reality is one of the reasons that I disliked the Netflix series Uncoupled: I kept saying "It's not like that at all."
The Setup: Michael's got a stereotyped sassy female bff and two retro-stereotype hand-on-hip "let's go, girls" gay friends, one of whom is dating a Cute Young Thing half his age (Gonzalo Aburto, top photo).
Other soap opera antics: There's a dispute about what to do with the apartment that Michael and Colin own together (a big deal -- it must be worth $2 million)/
