  • I always thought 35-50 was middle aged, old is 50-70, really old 70-99

  • Middle- is life expectancy, women are at 45-50 and men at 40-45.

  • I am 52 & do not feel like I am "middle-aged" I'll let you know when I do , maybe around 70 or so

  • I suppose it's different with every person.
    A vivacious and lively person may feel that the middle of their life is well past their 50's, while another person who is ill or down on themselves may feel that their 30's is the middle of their life.
    For me, who is 42 right now, I don't feel I have hit "middle age" yet and I have no idea when I will either.

  • I think it's 40-50. I don't think anyone is "old" until they are in their mid 60's.
