Do you have any idea what it’s like to be single again for a gay man at my age?
Gay, middle-aged, and in the middle of a breakup. How do you find a new love when all you’ve ever known was your love for 17 years?
In Uncoupled (2022, Jeffrey Richman and Darren Star), forty-something Michael Lawson (played by actor Neil Patrick Harris) seemed to have it all: a stable relationship with his boyfriend of 17 years, not to mention a successful career as a New York real estate agent. But then, on the eve of his boyfriend Colin’s (played by actor Tuc Watkins) birthday, he got dumped unceremoniously without so much as a goodbye. Colin simply told him, “I took my clothes and some things and I moved out.”
After being in a relationship with someone for too long, Michael is at a loss now that he’s single again, he didn’t know what to do. But thank goodness for friends who got Michael’s back. He’s suddenly back to the dating game in no time. He goes out with friends, whether to eat or go clubbing, sleeps with other guys, goes skiing with them, gets an offer for a threesome, and even takes dick pics?
I loved the trailer of this series and I’m looking forward to watching it. It’s reportedly created by Darren Starr (Sex and the City, Younger) and Jeffrey Richmond (Modern Family, Frasier). And of course, there’s Neil Patrick Harris whom I adore. He’s best known for his roles in Doogie Howser, M.D. (TV Series, 1989-1993), How I Met Your Mother (2005-2014), Gone Girl (2014), and The Matrix Resurrections (2021) to name a few.
Uncoupled also stars Emerson Brooks, Tisha Campbell, and Marcia Gay Harden among many others. You can watch the series on Netflix starting July 29, 2022. Meanwhile, you can check out its trailer below:
What, another privileged, sculpted, conceited gay man? Why watch? How boring.
Here getting tired of overly-privileged gay and white as well.
Lmao, yeah, I feel you both on your valid points that. It’s what they do and don’t do with that privilege/lottery, that I find sad, really, as many seemingly have no appreciation or respect/reverence. Consequently, the vast majority seem to be unfortunately; I really hate to say it, man, but here in south Florida, more than 1/2 of them are HIV+. I’m kinda glad, let’s be clear; they have their biases, saves me from that many more chances to encounter/exposure. I’ve closely observed these types in whatever region I happen to be living in. I honestly kinda feel for them,… Read more »
I get voted down for TRUTH. Doogie Howser ain’t worth it guys lol. Seriously though, @Lamar all of your points are valid and it’s the same thing here in NY.
And, my flesh is always eviscerated by the splinters who spring forth from the woodwork whenever I write the TRUTH!
It is the price we pay for TRUTH without MERCY!
Lmao, no reason to stop telling the truth; they hammer me, and I hammer even harder in return as it’s about truth; I put it out there anyway, as we were already in opposition/enemies; in terms of class and race. I find it funnier the older I get, though, ’cause we all love dick and man-ass on here, lmao! And so, in that respect, we both/all equally share the burden of our rights as LGBTQ+ people, regardless of color/culture, being threatened.
Would you have preferred…
Lmao, it should be interesting, funny, insightful-negatively and positively as to what it’s like; like what women go through actually. . . only from a gay point of view. As to what gay men ‘actually’ do to each other emotionally; depending on who’s the “bottom or top,” or who is more affluent, attractive etc. I’m thinking, there are certain dynamics that come into play here as some people do or handle their newly “single and ready to mingle” status differently, just depending on the circumstance/s of the splitting-up. And then, getting on with your life at a significantly older age… Read more »
Is Neil p a bottom or a top
Could this website get any more generic in its portrayals of gay men?
Well, when that’s what gay men are typically catering to “monkey see monkey do” = generic people generally speaking. Doesn’t seem to be a “limelight” for the dare I say “non-scene” gay men, aside, from the self-debasing or hating.
we are a visual society and what catches the eyes gathers attention. Attention creates demand and demand creates supply!
Those who are discreet and logical remain invisible and invisibility does not gather attention!
Thus, invisibility stimulates neither “Supply Nor Demand,” and in a “Market-Driven Economy, the greater the visuality (supply) , the greater the profilts (demand)!
Give The People What They think They Need…and not Giving The People What They Need!
Finally, there’s logic one cannot argue, mostly. So, you have to ‘keen’ enough to know what you need, and what you don’t. This is like straight out of the mouth of an economist.
What I don’t agree with though, is the ” the solution”. . .”giving the people what they ‘think’ they need.” I don’t concur.
The Media decides what they want to sell to the general public and to buy into and that buying into it, is predicated on the mindset of convincing the general public that bedazzlement is what the public needs instead of allowing the public to actually figure out what is needs?
That’s true, “what they want to sell” and that, is the rub, the “bedazzling effect” the pandering to. It’s the difference between those of us whom prefer better quality media viewing, than those who prefer the constant mindless, insignificant viewing. Although, I’m aware that sometimes escapism, sometimes is needed, otherwise, no, I decide what is needed for what I view. I’m not convinced, in that respect, lol, I guess I’m not of the “general public.”
Harris is a good choice for the character. He’s well known, generally accepted, and is not locked into the age old stereotype for gay men the The Community continues to force on society.
i like him and his work as well, he and his hubby make an awesome couple, they look so hot together, honey
“for a gay man at my age…”
Let’s take a poll. At what age is getting into/having a relationship easy for a gay man?
Interesting question! Multiple factors are in play, if you’ve just come out, say latest of teens, well, these tend likely to be “romances-dating.” As you know nothing about love, really, so nothing serious. Late twenties, early thirties, you might have a better grasp on what kind of man you, yourself are; and what you want-need from someone else as well as what you’re bringing to the table, college is most likely behind you. You’re an old hat now, “in the life” no longer totally naive, hopefully. You’re not quite ready to “settle down” but want more stability, period, which is… Read more »
DOOGIE is a keeper, honey! ♥
