What does Christmas mean to you, guys, now that we are older?
For me, Christmas is no longer about presents but rather, it’s a time for gratitude and forgiveness. More importantly, Christmas for me is also a time to remember loved ones who are no longer with us, thus, remembering and cherishing their memory should be a part of our annual Christmas celebration.
But how can we show our gratitude?
We can do it in many ways. Foremost, by giving back to LGBT organizations such as those that provide housing for homeless LGBT youth and to those that focus on the needs of runaway youths. Some of these organizations are the Ali Forney Center, National Network for Youth, and Ruth Ellis Center to name a few. You might also want to check other LGBTQ organizations like The Center for Black Equity, The Trevor Project, and the Transgender Law Center. We can also, of course, volunteer our services to LGBTQ organizations near us.
Anyway, this has been a year fraught with challenges and changes for many. Looking back, we faced a lot of things: global health issues for instance—there’s the COVID-19 pandemic and the monkeypox—not to mention the inflation and war in Ukraine. However, we faced these challenges head-on, and together, we managed to survive.
It has been our honor and pleasure to serve you all. And this coming year and beyond, we look forward to continuing to cater to your dating needs.

We, the Adam4Adam Team, would like to wish you and your loved ones love, peace, happiness, and good health, wherever you are in the world.
why am i the ugliest piece of shit in the world, honey?
Did someone anger the “Good Lord”?
Nah, just angry pissed and puzzled over what I got from Santa this year: an ugly face, you think so too
right there with you.
What Christmas means to me as I get older is thinking how my Mother made Christmas special for us every year. Growing up in a family of 8 brothers and sisters, had it many challenges but Mom always came through for Christmas. I remember getting up Christmas morning having gifts under the tree. I remember the big Christmas Day dinners. Wow, she was the best cook in the world. I remember the Christmas candy, cookies and the fruits. I made sure my kids had memorable Christmases following her lead.
Christmas celebrates the “Birth Of Christ.” The “Holiday of Christmas” is commercial and devoid of Religiosity. As we age, the religious aspect of Christmas may begin to ring a bell – somewhere – but the commerciality of Christmas becomes either a bore or superficial? To me? I am 58 and, unfortunately, the last of a family of eight as I was a “Change-Of-Life-Baby”; thus, I was born when both of my parents were 48. I was born in ’64 while my late siblings were born in ’46, ’48 and ’52. Christmas reminds me of what was and what is doesn’t… Read more »
totally agree.. u seem to be a good person, and i hope the holiday brought u peace and good memories of days gone by
At Christmas, really year round, we can best show our gratitude by breaking away from division and supporting countless social organizations, not only those LGTBQ+ oriented. If we’re going to demand equality, we have to demonstrate we deserve it.
.. and mind you, santa clause gave me an ugly face, i now gotta deal with it .. for LIFE, honey .. FOR LIFE!
There is always plastic surgery. It can work wonders with a good practicioner. Chin up, hope is not lost.
A brown paper bag over the head is just as sufficient and it is cheaper and less expensive, too!
Use a “Brown Paper Bag” over-the-face!
It is cheaper, renewable and removable!
Christmas is, to me, about hope. Of course, that stems from Christian teachings, but I dont think one has to subscribe to any paritcular faith in order to be reminded of hope. And you might say that Christmas is rather about tradition. For as much as we detest that word the rest of the year, somehow it becomes important to us again at Christmas….perhaps not all of us, but most. As I become older, Christmas more and more represents the foundation of what I believe spiritually. I pulled away from the commerical nonsense attached to Christmas years ago. That is… Read more »
Christmas is the same for me as it was when I was much younger, a time to acknowledge the birth of Jesus Christ. Jesus represented love and sacrifice, something that the world needs a little bit more of each day. I don’t give in to the commercialism of Christmas and feel the need to be in line trying to buy things people don’t need. I don’t give into the dogma of religion that attempts to control us during this time of the year. But I show gratitude by giving to those in need and showing appreciation for those special in… Read more »
Christmas to me as I get older(60)means just another day , a day off, It means cold crappy weather. It also means being kind to a few people and being pleasant to strangers here and there. no magic happenings expected and none appear. no gifts required but lovingly given.
I’m remembering the smells, the Christmas tree, the food, the holly strung over the doorways, the presents, the snow to be shoveled. I’m remembering my mother and all those that have passed that made our holidays absolutely wonderful as kids. Christmas is different as a kid, than it is as an adult, now a senior citizen and so much thanks to give as I put-up my own tree and lights, preparing food . . . I’m only here in life, because of them, that are no longer here, so there’s nothing to be sad about, except, missing them makes me… Read more »
