Why men complain about body hurting, tired etc.. when first start talking/dating?

I am sorry but when you are first getting to know someone I just do not understand why men go on and on about how hard they work, body hurts, tired...etc... These men are 45-52? I too have aches and pains and work a lot, but when I am dating or with my man (when I find him), this should not be the main topic of conversation? I don't understand it. It kills the mood and only tells me you are have nothing else to talk about? Is it that these men I am meeting are the ones that their wives divorced because the man only wanted to sit around and not enjoy life, just wanted to complain?

Is the reason you're over 45 and don't have a man is that your needs and interests are the only ones that matter in a relationship?

I am the one who hugs often, takes care and babies you when your down or sick. I guess it is just hard for me to think that when I
