Yeah, no.
I wanted to ask the community a question:

Is there something that you like or enjoy today, that you didn't like/enjoy 10 or more years ago?

The reason that I ask is because I realized that I used to not like tattoos (especially on women) many years ago (which was sort of hypocritical) but my tastes have changed over the years and now I find them attractive most of the time.

I've always liked tattoos and think they can be very attractive, but hmmmmm, something I like today that I didn't 10 years or more in the past...I know there must be something I'm overlooking, but the only thing that comes to mind is perhaps gardening. Not that I ever disliked it, but I never really showed any interest in it until I started growing tomatoes about 8-9 years ago. Through those 8-9 years, it has not only evolved into a greater knowledge of tomato varieties and what it takes to grow them, etc, but my interests have bloomed (pun intended) to include many other plants, as well as companion plants that are beneficial for growing vegetables, as well as for keeping pests out of the garden.

I also have a love for native pollinator plants that help to sustain native bee species, other insects and even birds. With the dwindling amount of natural areas that have either been hacked down or modified, native planting can do wonders for local insect populations that are, in some cases, are even on the brink of extinction. It's a dream of mine to one day have a large vegetable and pollinator plant garden to grow things to eat and to have a place for my little insect buddies to do their insect stuff. lol :p But yeah, I guess gardening would be one thing that's changed.

The great white north, eh?
This is all hypothetical, but getting fat with a thin partner. For hears I was very FA-y in how I saw people and imagined mostly mutually gaining relationships. Maybe some of the great stories from certain FFA here got under my skin, because more recently the thought of getting fatter with a thiner, fat admiring, partner has started cropping up more inmy mental fantasies.

Or maybe just came out of hibernation? In my early teens I did have a secondary appreciation of athletic women, but at the time I couldn't reconcile that with liking fat, and sort of pushed that out of my thoughts to focus on fat stuff.

Yeah, no.
Another area where my tastes have matured is in the area of short vs tall women. Years and years ago, I almost exclusively dated tall-ish women. Probably the shortest gal I dated was 5'8". The tallest being 6'3" (for perspective, I'm 5'7"). But over the course of the last couple of years, I discovered a newfound appreciation for women on the shorter side.

Yes, you should :) One guy even went so far as to get a wax for me unasked! I would have been fine with a shave but I didn't argue with the results. He felt wonderful down under... * Sigh *

I actually do keep myself trimmed up, per the wife’s orders. I wouldn’t mind getting waxed. Wife also said it looks bigger when cleanly manscaped. :)

I’ll fourth beards. I used to find them unappealing and now I prefer them! The one good thing about the Hobbit movies was that they cemented this change haha.

Good ol' Upstate New York!
Hmm...interesting topic. I know my tastes and interests have changed over the years but nothing specific comes to mind right now.

I have no objection to tattoos. I don't have any because nothing has really inspired me to get some ink but it could happen some day. When folks get carried way with tattoos...that's not really my thing but to each their own.

I'm clean shaven because I usually find beards itchy and mine is mostly gray now anyway. I don't see the appeal of long beards but short beards can be nice...I just like being clean shaven.
