Interesting question, I'd say. Ultimately, the majority of the forum is 16-25 or round about there, yet we're attracted to Penelope Cruz, Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Dr. Phil and the majority of our friends mums. As we advance through the generations, do you specifically become attracted to more older women, or do you remain attracted to the same people that you are attracted to now? I know your response is going to be 'nobody knows', but that was people's response to the questions that a young Aristotle would pose, or a Gallileo Gallilei would pose to his friends - curiousity never hurt anybody. Perhaps the older members of the forum can enlighten us on a change in their sexual preferences?
I guess this question also extends beyond sexual preferences - it could extend to games also. Largely, we all like Pokémon to at least some extent - but perhaps we like it for different reasons than we did when we were a kid? Or perhaps not - females like it because they find Vulpix etc. cute and furnishing their Pokémon team is akin to decorating their bedrooms. Males like it because of the competition - ultimately, most male will play for the feel of doing something valuable. Before you shrug this off, it's been proven by scientists that females get addicted to games less easily than men. Obviously women can like it because of competition and men can like it because of the thrill similar to decorating their bedroom. But does this competitive urge get stronger, does it stagnate and Pokémon just become a taboo topic of sorts, or does it get weaker and that's the reason for us stopping playing? Many people will swap Pokémon for Golf... is it because of a change in our careers (golf is a good way to socialize with friends and conduct business), or is it because we genuinely change our activity preference from Pokémon to golf? You could say also swap golf with Scrabble and crosswords - is it because when we become older we become boring old coots, or is it because we lose the energy we used to have?
The chief question being - do our brains change? Do they change with old age? Do our desires change, our does society just expect us to be different?
i made this on another forum. thought i'd repost it here
