    I dont mean in the Uni sense.

    What I am talking about is in age range or mindset as though someone on here or otherwise may say that they would have friends on their course or at work in their late 20's or older when it comes down to it I see people in the street or online getting called old who are as young as mid twenties or as old as like 35 and even more so I have seen girls in their late 20's called ****'s or attractive mature ladies and I dont see how late twenties or even early thirties is "mature" in the general sense.

    I see people have partly things subconciously so if they speak to someone they may get on with but some randomer they dont know they are old at the back of their mind and this must be the case as a few years back when I was 24 I was called creepy for having a 17 year old friend and when speaking to some 21 year olds they thought I had no interest in going to gigs or such.

    Just so confusing.

    I've always been seen as being extremely mature and old beyond my years (read: boring?) and I'm currently 22. I'm more comfortable with older friends than I am with people my own age or younger, for the most part, and have more in common with a woman of 40, generally, than with a 19-20 year old.

    I'd say, for that reason, that it varies from person to person. People my own age might see me as serious/dull/unsociable, but I might see them as immature.

    Lol I was about 15 when American Pie came out so I do know what it means.

    However it generally is used in the terms of a mature woman like in the movie and often is used to describe women without kids.

    Whats being 5 years younger got to do with anything? I was at the leaving home age when it came out so saw the growth of it so saw it firsthand.

    But like I say its nothing to do with a mum anymore its to do with a "mature" woman as its also applied to single women seemingly over like 24

    No it isn't. :indiff:

    Anyway, I have no age limits. I can talk to different people about different things, so as long as we have something in common. I would hang out with the people I have most in common with though.

    Hmmm seems Im finally getting the support for such an obvious thing that should have been agreed when I pointed it out the first time.

    yeah, in order to be considered a **** you would have to be at least of the age most women start having kids.
    In my opinion it would be specifically the age of a woman who has kids that are either teenagers or grown ups themselves (i.e 40s) to be a true ****. Just like the "cougar" women (significantly older women who go for men in their late teens or twenties).

    Mind you. I'm probably considered an older woman to those in here. 25 I bet is pretty old!

    Thats what I was getting at and was was seemingly misunderstood, I see girls called a **** who are single and about your age so the age part has lowered for what people see a **** as, and IMO id say a woman when she goes from her 30's onwards can be seen as a possible **** and 35-40 is the actual age range for me hence the **** in American Pie, I was looking at a Youtube video earlier and someone was calling this girl who was 28 a cougar and I was like WTF?!

    And to the others, I think the part about American Pie was misunderstood, I was getting at I was at the home leaving age where I was able to see it become mainstream and how it has changed and IMO even if you ask someone in their mid to late twenties now what a **** is they would say in their mid thirties etc, I have seen women as young as around 23 or 24 being called ****s, I sort of disagree with the general sense of its any woman of child bearing age as that means a 16 year old can be called a **** even if shes single(since how do you know unless she has a child she even has one)

    Ditto.

    I don't think there's anything wrong in having older/younger friends than you as long as there's nothing dodgy actually going on. Where I work atm I'm the youngest at 20 and the oldest employee there is in her late fourties. We're really close friends.
