How can you tell if you're an older man's mid life crisis?

Is it really that mature men get midlife crisis? I was reading this post about a girl having a relationship with a guy 20 years older than her. So its okay to be in love and age does not matter. Perfect. But what happens if the older guy is just having a midlife crisis and looking for a younger woman to get his confidence back? Hollywood is saturated with these stories, older guy leaving his wife for a younger woman only to realize he's not that into her after all. How can you tell? Will there be signs? You know if a man your age is being a jerk. But with older guys, you just can't help looking up to them so you might become gullible. Interesting.Now the 'blonde bimbos' of Hollywood can have some justice to their story.

Well, the symptoms would include a. biting nails, b. dropping wallet every now and then c. fearing the fact that their wallets are empty so stuffing them a tad too much d. losing hair or getting them gray e. tying the shoe lace of the left shoe with that of the right shoe f. loving lousiest or loudest of music g. reading and discussing story books nobody would dare to read or discuss h. attending concerts that he ridiculed his wife for going i. tipping taxi driver a bit too much j. trying to croon, when he can barely whimper, leave alone bark k. apply too much of perfume because they know they really stink without that much l. Actually the list is much longer, would you like more to be listed?

"trying to croon, when he can barely whimper, let alone bark" that is so funny! so what's the difference between senility and mid-life crisis? they seem the same vandana.

@abitcurious - absolutely no difference!!!! Just that people are too polite to tell the person on his face that he is senile!

I don't know if it is my post that you maybe have read, but yes I am with someone who is 19 years older than me... and no age does not matter to me or to him, but he does not get an ego boost by being with me, and I am certain on that. Maybe some men do see going with a younger woman as some kind of ego thing, but it is not all men some can be genuine about that kind of thing. I don't think that this is a sign of a man having a mid-life crisis either, although maybe again some you could say this is right, but with people that I know you can tell there is no mid-life crisis. We can't help our feelings for others regardless of their age, and could the same be said about some women who go with younger men (toyboys) are they having a mid-life crisis? Look at Barbara Windsor... she has a young man, and they have been together a long while, this cannot be her having a mid-life crisis and needing a young man to make her feel younger. I guess people can generate their own opinions on this subject, but I think that as everyone is different unless you know the people concerned you cant really judge or assume anything.

You're totally right about that. That was why I was wondering how people can differentiate the other for the real thing. I mean what makes us sure that the age thing will not be an issue. In the first place because the more mature person is considered to be the one more responsible, what happens when that person's motives can't be trusted. How would you be able to tell if the guy/gal is into you or just using you to get through a phase
