  • lol, i used to think that 30 was sooo old, but now i am 30 (o wait.... i'm still 29 for another 5 years lmao) and i don't feel any different than when i was in my 20's. so now i think that 50 is old! but i'm sure that will change when i'm 50 lmao

  • I'd say your as old as your head makes you feel. My body feels one way, but my head doesn't feel the same.I know by how I feel I'm getting up in my age, and I'm a senior age wise, experiences I've had, Gr-chd I have, heartahes I had, losses I had. I mind tells me some times I think much younger, I've always been more comfortale around people younger than myself not a lot younger but a little younger. So I guess it depends on what you feel on the inside of your head.

  • Yes, I think it is how you mom at 80 was asked what does it feel like to be 80? She replied that she didn't feel any different than when she was 40, but her body would not cooperate like it did then. Don't really know if this answers your queston. Just one idea.............

  • Age is an attitude not a number.  I will be 47 on Wednesday and I am no where near old.

  • Age is just a number. But, if I had to pick an age that I would consider someone "old" I would probably say 97. And some people are still young when they're 97 lol.

  • I would consider someone older at 50 and elderly around 70-80 depending on how they were getting around...

  • I would agree that age is just a number. You're only as old as you feel. But I consider someone in their 80's old. But some people in their 80's can get around better than I can and I'm 21! lol.
