What's your scary age?

By scary age i mean the age at which you will feel "old".

I am 28 now...mine is 32. I don't have any real anxiety about getting older but I can remember when my mom was 32, and at the time she seemed old.

  • 30. Then when I turn 30 it will probably change to something else.

  • Well, I remember when my mom was 36 that seemed old to me, never mind the fact that I am only 4 years away. LOL I haven't had any real issues so far, other than the grey hair I found a couple of months ago. I'm chalking that one up to a daughter who going to be 16 in November, not age. (c:

  • Haven't reached that age yet , I guess.

    I'm 47 and I don't "feel" and I'm not... Old yet.... I still have a lot of good years ahead of me. I view myself as just hitting my stride in life..

  • I'm 49...will be 50 obviously on my next own age doesn't bother me at all, I feel better and more energetic than I have in years, I have so much I want to do with my life now that my boys are all pretty much grown...youngest is 18, and the 18 & 21 year old are home but in college and working.

    Anyway....I don't have a scary age for me....but my oldest is 28, and the thought of having a 30 year old child...well that's kind of freaking me out!!!!!
