How old is old? I think you are as old as you feel AND act, what do you think?

  • It depends on who you ask, to a kid, I am ancient but to someone like my mom who is 91, I am young, but you are right, you are as old as you feel. By the way I am turning 61 this month, and I do not feel old!

  • Age is an attitude not a number.

  • I sooo agree. I'm 49 years old, but feel younger and more energetic than I did in my 30's!! My kids are grown and I get to sleep through the night. The younger two are at home, but they're pretty much self sufficient...other than is pretty good. I definitely don't feel old, and don't plan on feeling old anytime soon!!

  • I agree with you, I think that some people are only old because they choose to act it, and others stay young much longer because of thier presonality and activity level

  • Well, in that case I am way older than I actually am!

  • I'm 24, and my 17 year old niece called me old the other day!!! I don't think I'm old, I certainly don't feel old (except on days when our daughter wears me out!)

  • Old, for me, gets older all the time. As my mother gets older, I don't want to say she's old, so I keep raising the number. I also agree you are what you feel and act not a number.

  • I get surprised sometimes when I look in the mirror, because I'm the same person on the inside...I've matured a lot, but still feel like I'm in my twenties. I have a teenager, but also have a toddler and a baby. They keep me young too!

  • Too old for what? I am too old to use the playground at McDonald's. I'm not too old to ride the jet ski, have a snow ball fight (if it ever snows) or lay in the grass. I'm 51. I definitely believe you are as old as you let yourself be. (FYI: I'm not really too old for the equipment at McDonald's - just too big!!!)

  • It is just a number.
