    Imagine X is in a midlife crisis and goes to a city with over 60% of the population aged under 24. How he/she would feel there? Depressed or delighted?
    What do you think?
    Maybe the answer depends on the person, so i'll make the question more personal.. How would you feel?

    I think it would depend on whether that person is attractive or not... don't you agree? If they aren't and they don't find any attractive people to hang out with/date, then they might be depressed. If they are attractive and they find people, they would most likely recover a lot faster and feel better about themselves.

    Oh ok, missed that. Well.... I would think that the person would compare where they are in life with where those peiple seem to be going. If he or she isn't happy with their live (not just because of the mid life crisis) then watching young, happy people live theirs will bring sadness.

    However if they are comfortable with life and just having this crisis as a sudden burst of sadness and a need to fulfill themselves, they might be inspired by those people and reminded of their time of youth... it might give them the energy to overcome this.

    Haha ah, well no I'm only 19 so I'm mostly assuming here, going by what I already know of course.

    Well in 20 or so years I see myself living a comfortable life, nothing extravagant but I'm not looking for that kind of job.

    In an idea world and let's say I do have this comfortable life with a wife and maybe a kid or two, I would probably.... miss being young, just a little though. To have that care-free ignorance and happiness that comes with it is something I miss having.
