I remember when I was a kid, talking to my uncles and such and thinking that they are old. Now I'm at that age, I certainly don't have that aging feeling and don't have the realization that I'm actually 30s. How do most people just passed 30 feel? Do you feel older? Or do you simply live on your 20s? I know I don't feel a day older than the day I stepped out of HS (may be I need to mature?)

So, how do you feel?

I don't feel older. Don't think I look much older. I'm in the same physical condition (or better).

I am 34, btw.

I'm stronger, wiser, richer and smarter than ever before. I live the life I want, and I enjoy it to its fullest. I guess one way to put it is this: I still feel like I'm 18, but only much much better.

As as Gabe Kaplan said on Welcome Back Kotter "You know you are getting old when you find yourself making your father's noises when you wake up."

I think that is called Senility.

The aches and pains are the only things that make me feel old. Yesterday I hurt my knee just getting into my car. WTF is up with that?

In all other ways I feel quite young. Seems like people continue feeling young, with octegenarians looking in the mirror and being surprised to see an old person there.

No, I don't feel old. I think it comes from the mind. I don't think I'm old, therefore I'm not.


I'm 52. :beer:

36 here. No I don't feel old.. currently losing weight slowly but the sad thing is there are no women around 26-30 available here. :(
The choices are 18-22 or 35+ with kids.

Reread today's meth thread and you'll know why you feel old. ;)


I'll be 60 this July and I am more active than most guys in thier mid-40s.
No booze, drugs, tabaca, or coffee + light/moderate exercise. Blood pressure is 125/78, resting heart rate is 74bpm.
One aspirin and a daily vitamin is all the drugs this old fart needs at this point in time.
I just might be around awhile. Looking forward to buying a good used touring bike this Spring :laugh:

A 72yo friend of mine flew his Grumman single engine, under-wing, airplane back to Tennessee for Thankgiving.
When the weather clears he'll be flying'er back to SoCal.

I'll hit 30 in a couple of months and the thought of that is making me dread feeling old in a couple of months.

LOL... yeah the 18-22 is the stuff to go for, if I need a 'hit and run' encounter. Can't deal with the drama fr longer than that. LOL

I turned 40 a few months ago. I felt old for about all of a day. Age is a state of mind. Besides I read yesterday that 40 is the new 30.

I only feel old when I wear old concert t-shirts to the grocery store and the cashier asks me who the band is :(
