    What are the symptoms, whats the average age? Is there a cure? Has anyone gone through this?

      ---It happens to me every Monday at 7:30 am sharp, wnen I open my eyes and realise that I still have .... years to retirement and I have to get up and go to work.
      No cure, sorry. Just keep busy. It will go away.

    Well my brother is at that stage. It hit him as soon as he hit 40, a few years ago. He started with the compulsive buying of unnecessary items, and talked about getting a motorbike and all that.

    If you have an unexplainable desire to buy  motors, sports cars, going out and above all getting beautifull woman like when you were 16, guess what, you're there

    You don't look old enough to have a mid-life crisis, that is unless you only expect to live to 60 smile

      lol. I'm almost 36 and yes, early 60's would be my guess. I am doing a lot of what you guys are saying though which is scary. Such as going out all the time, all my friends are early 20's and yes, I'm chasing the girls again (not women...girls as in 19-25 year olds!! aarrgghh!!!!!

    One clue is that you're asking if you're having a mid-life crisis. You just got to tough this out I guess.

    It's when you start to realize life has an end, and it's in sight. You are starting to have aches and pains, and maybe seem to be losing a step.

    You know when you're 16 and someone says you'll die one of these days and you think yeah-right. When you get to the mid-life crisis age and someone says that to you, you know they're right.

    When I was in my late 30's and had just went through a divorce I had a 20 year old girl friend for a few years, and went back to college, I guess that was my crisis time.

    But hey, 20 year old girlfriends aren't too bad, nor are sports cars and Harleys. lol
