At what age is a woman no longer considered young to you?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I feel like society can sometimes make anyone a day over 18 feel old sometimes. lol

I think 29 and lower is definitely young.

30's and 40's middle aged, and 50's and up are old. 

However!!! That is generally speaking. I have seen younger people ACT and LOOK older simply because they didn't take care of themselves, therefore they seemed "old" even though they weren't. I have seen much older people take care of themselves physically and act young, and they seem much younger. A big factor in young and old is definitely how a person carries themselves in my opinion. I think it has less do do with the number and more to do with the person themselves. 

What do you generally classify as young, middle aged, and old?

I do not think 30 is middle aged. Come on now. Women in their 30s are still young. Maybe 45 would be middle aged.

Depends on my age.  I'm 40 and wouldn't considered myself middle aged until somewhere around 50 years old (give or take).

But, I don't believe it's just about the number attached to you.  It also depends on your maturity level.  I know 40 somethings who act like idiots, but people in  their twenties, way more mature.

 When a kid told me that ACDC is a new band I felt old. When someone said Steven Tyler was the lead singer of Limp Bizkit, I felt old. And when Walmart stopped carding me for alcohol, I felt old. its not fair. Im only 23.

I think people are only as old as they feel.

The older I get, the farther back I push my cutoff for "old". 

I don't know.  I guess I'd say 45-65 middle aged.  Above 65 as old.

"Young" until 28 ... Middle age 29-45 .... 45-55 still isn't "old", to me its just like upper middle age. lol and 60+ is "old" to me. Just my opinion...

And the only reason i say 29 middle aged for me is people in my family.... Don't live until 60 usually.

Being "old" is a state of mind far more than a chronological age.
