'Men of a Certain Age': Becoming Invisible to Women (VIDEO)

'Men of a Certain Age':  Becoming Invisible to Women'Men of a Certain Age' (Mon., 10PM ET on TNT) follows the lives of three men who are experiencing, well, a mid-life crisis. Middle age can be a tough time for everyone involved, men and women both. But on the new episode, Owen (Andre Braugher) encounters a uniquely guy-ish problem. Young ladies no longer see him; rather, they see through him.

Yes, Owen has become invisible to the opposite sex. As he enters the guys' local breakfast joint, two women look right past him -- even as he holds the door open for them. But if Owen is expecting sympathy from fellow middle-agers Joe and Terry (Ray Romano and Scott Bakula), then he's come to the wrong place.

"You guys see that?!" Owen says. No, dude; whether your friends saw it is unimportant. The main thing is that the ladies didn't see you. Owen quickly protests that he used to be hot; girls used to check him out. "No," says Terry. "No," says Joe. " ... No," Terry adds, just to make things even clearer.

Next, Owen continues his progress through the middle-aged stages of grief. He now starts complaining that young women "look right through him." So, for additional maximum unhelpfulness, Joe says that the problem is the mid-life weight that Owen has gained: "They probably look halfway through you. And then they have to rest."

Aging sucks, but it beats the alternative. Having a parent who died at age 46 was a harsh, but valuable, wake-up call to enjoy life at any age and move through these "transitions". Now that I am through the stage where men are checking me out with their eyes (and gonads), I find a more genuine type of engagement from those few fellas looking for substance. It's refreshing and dispenses with a lot of angst. Furthermore, a "once only" friendly conversation is not a failed encounter, but a human "be"-ing.

Life is the best thing one has,in any age one who is wise can search for the eternity with out problem to entangle the time we have each day! to live a holy life is the ideal condition to any human being, that is why we study and practice the Bible word of wisdom, never miss the sight that our eternal soul is mortal!
being today, better than yesterday, but not as good as tomorrow!

Not a "uniquely guy" problem and the entire premise was ripped off from a thirtysomething episode.
