    I've never considered my parents to be old. They're 43 and 45 (I'm almost 22). When I was a kid I was always the one with parents 10 years younger than their friends' parents, and partly because of that they still don't seem that old to me. A lot of my friends have parents the age of my grandparents.

    I've never really considered my parents to be old either, my mum is 46 and my dad is 47 (I'm 25). Like several others in this thread, my mum looks younger than her age, and I can still remember her saying how she found school events to be an ego boost when I was in school because she was one of the youngest parents there!

    I'm really only now starting to see my grandparents as old, as my grandfather is starting to develop dementia (he's 72) and my grandmother's muscle issues aren't resolving as quickly as they used to (she's 66).

    My parents are still very very together, but then their both academic. I don't see my dad as old, he looks 10 years younger than he is anyway. My mum runs out of energy very quick and has never been that agile, so I notice her age :p:

    Well my mum and dad are 41 and 45 respectively, but my mum is always being mistaken for my sister as she looks about 25 (no joke) and my dad still has a full head of hair and no greys, so I guess they're doing ok for themselves.

    Haha :blush:
    Actually, sometimes I feel quite inferior to my mum because she gets a lot of attention from the sort of guys I go for.
    She's gets chatted up by 21 year olds :laugh:

    The other day my granny (87 and still going strong!) was telling me about a woman who died aged 65 and what a such a shame that "such a beautiful young woman would go so early."

    'Old' really is a relative concept, isn't it?

    I'm 17, almost 18.. My mum and dad only recently hit 40.. My Mum turned 40 last December and my Dad did last February.. I don't really see them as old ! They don't do any stupid forgetful things either that imply memory loss or short-term spans or anything.. So not yet.. Haha.
