Hi i would like to speak to all goths out there, how many of you think its ok to be a goth at 46 years old, thats my age. Its not just because i love the look, especially medieval goth and victorian goth. I have always had the mind set of a gothic though im not into being sad or depressed all the time, i love the darkness in the music, art especially ann stokes, poetry and writings. I am drawn by history especially of the medieval period. I also love to read tomb stone, gargoyles, old castles and dragons, swords and night hood. What do you believe am i too old to be goth or are goths not restrained by age. Thanks for you opinion.

Why not? It may be silly to wear some items of clothing that only look good on really young girls, but goth style, especially victorian and medieval, can look very feminine and elegant and can be adjusted to look professional as well, if needed. Dropping some clothing items as you grow older is normal, but you don't have to abandon the entire style.
As for being part of the scene, I assume you're not into night life every weekend or anything, I guess that stops being interested after a while (I'm 20 years younger than you and I'm already not that into it anymore) but when you feel like visiting some concert or some event that doesn't happen every saturday, go for it.
In my opinion, some older people in the alternative scene do look like a parody, and it's mainly because they're trying too hard to appear young. On the other hand there are some other older people who make the best both of their age and of their style. They're kinda like the role models in the scene, that's the way I see it. Most younger people in the scene wanna be like them when they grow old. :)0
