  • Case by case basis. Age is in your mind. I have met 40 yr olds who act 70 and 70 yr olds who still run marathons.

  • Anyone who is more then 30 yrs older then the age I am at the time. So at this time that would be anyone 69 or older. But see, when I'm 69, "old" will then be 99!

  • at whatever age the body deteriorates to a point of debilitating illness, or incontinence (not simply referring to bowel or urinary).
    i know people in their 30s that i would call "old" because their bodies have taken a beating, and they are aging quickly, though i know others in their 70s going stronger than ever.
    the same applies to life experience, i know people who have lived more in 30 years than some who have lived in their 90... it is relevant to the individual, not on a mass scale.

  • "old" is always 15 years above whatever age I am.

  • Im thinking around 80 is old. Although my fil is 80 and acts much younger than my 55 yr old step-father.

  • All relative. My Papa is 96 and sharp as a tack, still drives a car.

  • Your old when you die.

  • I find that my definition of 'old' changes as I get older. When I was 15, 30 was 'old'. When I was 30, 50 was 'old'. Now that I am pushing 50, 110 is old. : )

  • I guess being in your 80's & 90's is old! But if you're healthy & happy. You're Ageless!!
