I feel about 55 years old mentally, and about 22 physically. My vitamins are so good at keeping me young.

How are you supposed to feel when you're eighteen?

.....well, when I was 18 I thought I knew everything, EVERYTHING. Then I looked forward to turn 21 and it seemed like an eternity to get there.......

I turn 21........blink my eyes and I'm suddenly a Thirtysomething guy....... .........and then I feel 18 again.

Age is only a number We are as young (or old) as we choose to feel.

P.S. RR-all teens know everything. Know this for when your kids turn that evil age. Then you lose it as you age. My son is 19-1/2, he is already beginning to lose some knowledge already haha....

Thanks Mr BAW.....I was thinking I was the oldest one here at 48 but you got me beat. I have always felt younger than my age. I feel about 35.....the high school sports (basketball, track, softball, field hockey) and years on swim teams have caught up with me and the weight and arthritis constantly bicker so I often feel my age physically. Otherwise I feel great. Like everyone, I have good and not so good days but I just deal with them. It's part of life growing older gracefully.

I don't feel 24. It feels like I haven't been out of school that long. I agree with the above... age is just a number.

I'm 27 but I don't feel it at all. I'm probably the youngest 27 year old ever. No aches or anything like that. I can still sit like a little kid with my knees together and legs out to the side with my butt on the floor. I seem to be way more intune with younger people than any of my freinds my age. I don't knwo. I just don't feel anywhere near my age yet I don't feel like an 18 year old or anything like that either. I can gauge myself in the summer when I coach at the local hockey school. Most of the instructors are Junior, NCAA, and even pro players. I know I'm in shape and shit when I can out run, out push up and basically out fitness them. especially the 18-21 year olds. I love beating them. Makes me feel "young" Also come Friday my "second wind" starts kicking into high gear by noon. I'm always ready to go out and have some fun. I haven't grown out of that yet.

Someone mentioned they felt old when they went to see The Killers. I'll admit I felt the same way when I saw them in Edmonton. I swear it seemed more like a highschool dance and I was supposed to be a chaperone.

Martha, you took the words right out of my mouth. I've got 2 years on you! I'm also starting to make old lady "OOF!" noises when I stand up or sit down. Tho people tell me I don't look my age, and I KNOW for a fact I don't act my age, sometimes I also forget.

It's bad enough getting older, but when you're a woman with the whole hormonal thing goin' on..."senior moments" (and other things) abound.

Carek1230 and Mr. BAW...we're definitely a small club.

But I sometimes forget how old I am. Literally.

Honestly i don't feel so much different than from when i was 10

Either i was a very mature 10 year old or i am a very immature 18 year old. Though i am told i am older personality wise than most

My aim is to remain child-like, seeing the world with awe and wonder...to still be able to have fun and imaginative with small things...to still dream and all.

You don't want to be childish though...sefishness, disrespect...me me me me kinda thing..


I am blabbering

Not at all...I would like to become wiser and stay looking youthful for at least 20 more years!!! Is that to much to ask?

I'm 16 and I act like the age I'm supposed to act, but look like I'm still in junior high. My mind feels like it's waaay older than 16 and has matured faster than those around my age..
It gets tough being around my friends who haven't fully reached their true potential in 'maturity'. It's complicated to have debates, discussions, or any serious conversations with them.

But then again, I've been told by all of my friends that they think I'm born in the wrong decade anyways

If I were born ten years earlier... pfffbt. I coulda been at the ZooTV tour then

haha as I'm only a teenager, I don't feel that old, and btw I'm in cross country, a P.E. class that starts before school does (like an hour before 1st period), and the only girl in my strength/conditioning class, and we had fitness testing today in all except for c.c but I ran with them so i could have easily done 8 miles today...but I sure do feel like I'm 80 after all that because I so sore...last night I fell asleep eating dinner, I was so exhausted.

But talking to all you 20-50 years olds makes me feel mature. But all you guys (and girls) don't seem old to me
