Midlife Crisis


A midlife crisis is a term used to describe a dramatic period in life that occurs between the “middle ages” of your life. A London escort may be able to help you during this time.

Midlife crisis is most common in middle-aged adults between the ages of 40-60. It is approximated that only about 10% of this age group go through this age related crisis. Midlife crises just like almost everything else, affect women and men differently. In men a midlife crisis can last between 3-10 years and usually starts around the age of 46.

A midlife crisis can be triggered by a number of things such as ageing itself or ageing together with a combination of changes, regrets or problems. Some of these regrets might stem from: work related issues, spousal relationships, physical changes that come with ageing, death of parents or maturation of children.

People who are able to accomplish the goals that they have set out for themselves may not experience a midlife crisis. Men, who are able to meet the needs of their spouses as well as their own transition into mid life, cope easier than those who cannot meet those needs. Men who don’t experience life outside of the family circle are more likely to experience a crisis at mid life.

When men reach a certain age they can go through a midlife crisis because they realise life is passing by quickly. They become overwhelmed and sometimes fearful because of the changes that may come as they age such as, ill health, females finding them less attractive, not being able to reach the goals they have set for themselves and the inevitable the fear of dying.

Midlife crisis comes in stages. These stages are – denial, depression, shock, acceptance and anger. Some people may be able to handle these stages smoothly while others jump to and from the different stages until they are able to work through their crisis.

With a midlife crisis, people may exhibit behaviour that they don’t normal display such as: the abuse of alcohol or drugs, spending sprees, self de-motivation, paying more attention to self image maybe to attract a London escort or entering a relationship with generational gaps, also possibly placing extra pressure on children to excel.
