    I am 47. And I always thought over 34 is old. Now that I went through the years, I am adjusting it down to 29.

    So you consider yourself as (very) old??!
    I think i'm not. I don't feel any different than i felt with 24. Well... apart from the backpain :lol:
    But inside my head...nope. All my friends are between 24 and 32, i fit perfectly in that range. All these guys are similar to Steven and Fallon of nuDynasty. The people over 40 are mostly a little too... setteled... and boring.. for my taste. :D
    At the moment at least.

    To be honest, I was actually thinking/acting a lot older when I was like 18, or 22. So, personality wise being older has freed me from a lot of my old hang-ups and showed me that many things I considered unbreakable rules can deliciously be broken. But in terms of my body, I know now that for every indulgence there is penance, whereas there were none before.
    Like you, I have most of my friends in the US be 10-15 years younger than me, and there is good chemistry there (also because they are nothing like the peach DYNASTY's siblings :D). But my best friend is only 3 years younger than me, and getting the same references and being at similar stages in our lives is just comfortable.

    As, @Willie Oleson , never stop jumping to conclusions. ;)

    That's kinda similar to myself: I've considered myself an old man long before my time. I've always been "boring" and "settled", as @Matthew Blaisdel has described people he knows in their 40s, even when I was still in my teens. Heck, I was still in my 20s when I discovered my first gray hair... except it was in my eyebrow, oddly enough (thankfully - and weirdly - no other gray hairs have appeared anywhere else).

    Now I'm 30... and so grateful for you guys, because being around all you old fogies makes me feel so young.

    .....:haha:

    If it is then, having just turned 47, I’m posthumous.

    It's the beginning of the end for those who are obsessed with their looks.
    For the other people, it's still a young age.

    For some, it is young. Warren Fox is in his early 40s and he still gets away with murder and multiple kidnappings, including kidnapping each of his twin babies separately from the hospital, after his kidnapping of his pregnant ex failed. In his 40s, he got out of prison after serving four and a half years for one of his multiple murders and then he quickly faked a relationship under a false identity with the sister of an ex of his that he had previously tried to murder. He was even excitedly trying on his balaclava in eager anticipation of kidnapping someone and messing them up a bit. As well as beating up his own son. And having an affair with the sister of the woman who caused his previous year-and-a-half death, which got him stabbed on his latest wedding day. He is clearly having the time of his life in his early 40s, even if all of his murder attempts haven't succeeded.

    Although on Gideon's Way last night, one of the characters beat someone to death and his brother told him, "E's an old man! Fifty if he was a day!" I could buy that.

    I guess it's not the years in your life, but the life in your years.

    If someone is hot, they look hot even in later life, assuming they take care of themselves and have some lucky genes. I still find Maxwell Caulfield hot though he is approaching sixty. But I don't think age is just a number, or just an issue of appearance. People bounce back emotionally more easily when younger, and they are also more willing to take risks and take chances, as well as welcome changes. I moved to a whole other continent, with no known connections there, when I was 23 and I was comfortable within a week as if I had lived in the US my whole life. I just moved apartments in the same area in NYC, and ten days later I am still not able to recover. :D

    Nah 41 is middle aged. At that age you likely have lived about half of your life!

    Really, really old IMHO is someone who is like 80 +.
    But that too depends a bit on the person as some people who are that age appears much younger as they are "young at heart". Also these days some people who are 80 definitely doesn't look like it so when you find out how old they actually are you are amazed since you would have guessed they were younger.

    In an age where the last major players in Gone with the wind; Olivia de Havilland has today turned 102 with Kirk Douglas not far behind, then no 41 is still young by today's standards I would say, more and more people are living well into their hundreds and hundred tens! Heck my mum is 52 this month and she still gets adressed young lady or woman, my gran is 71 and I would say she's in early middle age (which I now think starts when your in your early 60s)
