    Old, to me right now, is 20 :o:
    Old, applied to everybody, is over 60 (in my opinion).

    When you realistically have a good chance of living out another 50%+ of your current age...? :facepalm:

    Old is 75+, but it's quite a vague word to begin with so I suppose it's pointless to discuss.

    I dunno why. I don't mean old as in 'OMG THAT'S THE END OF MY LIFE!!' but like.. 'That's around the time when I have to stand on my own two feet properly and go out into the world and make a difference'.

    I'm still a kid in that sense, even though I'm 18 soon :p:

    OMG, you think 31 is middle aged? I wouldn't call someone middle aged until they were at least 40.

    I'd say, people are old at around 55+

    Well 50 isn't young. But yeah I change my mind to 60 + anyways after some thought...

    It's just I work in a care home and the residents start coming in at 50, so that's just how I see them really.

    31 middle aged??

    I consider 40 the point when you're not 'young', but you're not 'old' either. I'd say 60 is the point when 'old' comes into play.

    It's emergent middle-agedness. On the extremely young side of the middle-age waiting room but still, a foot in the door.



    (My parents were young - 24 and 26, respectively - when they had me so perhaps my mindset is somewhat screwed. Also, I base this on when the body's functionality starts to decline as opposed to social norms of age. No amount of Botox and Restylane can make me change my boundaries, Courtney Cox.)

    Yes, a mindset. A crippling, depressing and physically debilitating mindset. :rolleyes:
