  • You frigging kidding me? You feel old because you're going to be 27?

    I'm almost 39... For the most part I feel the same as I did when I was 23. Actually some co-workers were surprised at my age. They were 21 and thought I was perhaps 24 or 25.

    Still too much sh*t to do in my life, and since I plan on living forever, that's a lot of time to do stuff in.

    Oh wait... You're part of that Emo generation aren't you?

    That explains the self loathing over your wasted life and how you're so close to death's door. 😝

  • @Danny_dan92 yup you're an old man 😂 j/k... I believe life experiences equals age. Like when people say with age comes wisdom. Well if you lived a mediocre life with not a lot of happenings then you probably don't have a lot of wisdom to bestow on others.

  • I probably look old in the mirror; that's because I am old, but I don't feel old! I have some aches here and there, but I'm fit and strong. Women my age still hit on me, and sex feels as good at 64 as it did when I was 18. Maybe better.

    What's cool about most of the Opinions in this post is that most people are concerned about wasting their time. That's important because we have only one shot. As for me, I don't regret the things I did in life. I regret not doing more things I could have.

  • Had that yesterday lunch time... realised I am 36 this year. What the fuck happened, it only felt not long ago I was 16 doing my evening job and going to college... Then I saw a man who looked in his 70s and pondered if he thought "I was only 36 the other day"

    My dad died at 47 so as I get closer it gets weird, soon I will be older than he ever was

  • Nope. I was thinking about this just the other day. All of the things that I have done in my life up to this point. The good and the not so good times. There isn’t a box big enough to put the memories in. If I live to be 90 years old, I’m barely half way there. I still have my entire life, up until now, ahead of me. 😎👍🏼

  • I'm turning 27 this year too, I definitely feel like a grown man but I'm trying to keep the mindset of my best years being ahead of me still. During my travels last year I hung out with people in their early-mid 30s who still seemed young at heart, between age 25-40 it seems like age really just starts to become a number.

  • I feel it in my back --- pain from my job.

    I feel it in my motabolism --- it has slowed and I don't get enough fiber.

    I feel it in my mind --- I've grown dark, dry, and cynical.

    Not so much in my heart, although it is somewhat strained.

    I feel tired, trapped, non important, unwanted.

  • Starting to see it here and there. That's why during the summer I go out and do as many activities I can to enjoy being physically capable. I work with a lot of old people who basically just want life to be over already. It's sad but makes me realize to live life to the fullest.

  • It's amazing the results are 50/50, not only across all people but also for men and women separately!

    I am 25 myself. Up until I was 23, I never really thought much about my age. Now that I am 25, that age of 30 is getting eerily close. Yet, I wouldn't say I feel old at all. Even 30 isn't that old. I do feel a sense of urgency about my romatic life. I'm not in a relationship at the moment, but I would love to have kids some day. I'd prefer to be a young parent, and if I want that to happen, I'd need to step on it haha

  • 27 is when life started getting better for me. I feel old, as in, I can't do the physical things I could do at 20, and I'm not familiar with a lot of these celebrities and trends, but I just don't care anymore. I've done just about everything I've wanted to do. Things that used to bother me years ago, I don't worry about anymore.

    Life has been pretty good so far, and I'm still in pretty good shape. Worked for 40 years, retired, and now work a no-stress part-time job rounding up shopping carts. I still work circles around co-workers 1/3rd my age. I try to stay positive, and don't think about suicide or anything like that, but after so many years on this planet, it's fine if I go.

  • That's a very good way to GET old real fast!! The older you make yourself out to feel, the faster you'll get old!!
    I remember being 8 or 9 and asking grandma how old she was and when she said, "55", I went, WOW!! That's OLD!!! She said, "No it's not, I don't feel old.
    Now, I'm older than she was then and I still feel like I'm your age!! Mostly because I don't think of myself as old. That, and the fact that people on my branch of the family tree don't age that fast. Dad was 82 when he died and a lot of people didn't even think he was 62, yet!! I have cousins that are 5 to 10 years younger than me and they've looked old and wrinkled for the last 30 years!!

  • In my opinion, if you live a healthy lifestyle most of the feeling of being “old” stems from societal pressure. For example, the idea that you should be married with children by the time you’re 30, or that you should already have a career by 25. (Those may not be the exact standards, but it’s the point) If you’re healthy and happy, then age doesn’t really matter. If you aren’t then start making different decisions— clean up your diet, join a gym, go back to school, start that hobby you’ve always been interested in. See if by doing that you don’t suddenly feel “younger.”
