When did you realize you were old?

Me: When I would rather stay in on the weekends than going out.

When my new definition of multitasking is coughing ,sneezing and peeing at the same time.

Lmao that’s good!

Fricken hilarious!!!

What you said!


When I noticed how young all police officers look!

When my desire to not have a hangover or a DUI compelled me to almost always avoid drinking.

Menopause and it’s lovely symptoms.

When I look in the mirror and wonder “How the hell did that happen—and so quickly?”

When having fewer wrinkles and not wanting skin cancer became more important than being tan.

When being comfortable and taking care of my feet and hips outweighs choosing 3-4 inch heels.

Some of the things I notice might be more an effect of maturity as opposed to feeling or being past the middle point.

I miss my heels too! I hate wearing ugly shoes

@Redcupcoffee There are gorgeous shoes in the world that don't put you on your tip toes. I know, beautiful as you are, that you know this! smile001.gif


When I went into Spencer's Gifts to buy a metal KISS lunchbox... The little girl behind the counter looked at it and asked, "Are these guys new? They look like ICP!"

Ha!! I asked some 30-something’s yesterday if they remember the TV show CHiPs. They had not heard of it. Oy....

@BlueWave Did you ever notice on CHIPS when they were riding down the freeway there would be Lincolns, Caddies, Vettes, and Porches, but when a 10 car pileup happened it was old Ford's, Chevys, Plymouths, and VWs?


By your measure, I was old back in college. smile009.gif

I woke up with a sleep injury. HOW do you injure yourself sleeping???

Happens to me a lot... Can't tell you how many times I've thrown my hip out of place while sleeping...

Wild dreams?

I got a core muscle injury while sleeping. I couldn't put on or take off footwear for a week.

Don't feel bad I injured myself backing up the car


I can't read without my glasses. I wake up super early. My hair is more grey than brown. My injuries don't heal as fast. I still enjoy sex but the recovery time is longer.

Medicdad Level 5 Mar 16, 2018

I was training MMA about 10 years ago and these kids were getting these nasty injuries, but recoverying pretty quick. I knew if I got even a back sprain, my days as a fighter were gonna be numbered. I felt old right then....haha

@Stevil You aren't kidding! Funny side note, the very night I wrote this, I was moving some only moderately heavy stuff and I tripped over something, but didn't fall...and my back went out...haha!


I'm old? OK, OK, I'm old. I think it was kind of the same thing someone else mentioned below; jumping down from even relatively low heights became daunting, running turned into very cautious loping, climbing ladders is scary, routine things that I didn't much think about doing when I wasn't "old." Then there was the realization a few years back that the little baby girl I used to cradle in my arms was a grown woman with a whole life of her own.

When I started getting aches and pains for no reason....


When I asked a younger work colleague if they had ever seen the matrix. He was 19 and said that he doesn't really watch 'old' films. This happened last year. I wanted to punch him. No way is the matrix an old film

RobH86 Level 7 Mar 16, 2018

I think punching him would've been justified. Even in court.


I'm 51 and filing for disability.

Paul628 Level 8 Mar 16, 2018

A week from today, I will turn 60. I'm still not old.

Welcome to 60, my birthday was in January. I am the same way. Am I really old? And then I realize I must be smile003.gif

I agree with the "age is just a number" people. I know 40-year-olds who are old and I know 70-year-olds who can rave with the best.


When some smart ass teenager called me "gramps"

Rudy1962 Level 9 Mar 16, 2018

my friend was making a quip to a young thing and she turned around and said " fuck off grandad" that put him in his place forever !

@markdevenish lol


...when I realized I was more mature than my father.


After my wife took off with my daughter and filed for divorce. I went grey after that.

That sucks

Yeah. It really did. @Rudy1962


When half the worlds rock stars keep dying and I'm thinking 'They were how old?'

ipdg77 Level 8 Mar 16, 2018

Yet Keith Richards?!!!

@Redcupcoffee Indeed! He actually defines the notion that miracles can't happen. How on earth is he still alive?

@Redcupcoffee read his auto biography . it's amazing . all that time he was pretty well monogamous unlike wyman and jagger !


When it took two shoulder surgeries just to keep working out, 10+ years ago. =[

IAMGROOT Level 7 Mar 16, 2018

When you realize the Music is way too Loud!~~~~

The people around you look like they could be your daughter or son!

Staying home more than going out, even on the weekends!**



Wow, I just read your profile and at 45 , you consider yourself old?

jlynn37 Level 8 Mar 16, 2018

Well, I'm older than I've ever been.

@Redcupcoffee Touché.


Or running into a friend you haven't seen in years and thinking they look old.That's when it dawns on you that you probably don't look so young yourself.

sloryd Level 7 Mar 16, 2018

When I got diagnosed with a life-threatening disease like leukemia. Most of my friends/exes have been younger than me.


I are only 45 years old....that is not old. Wait until you are Medicare, then you might be old.

nicknotes Level 8 Mar 16, 2018

Not sure if it was the first time, but when I went to the doctor's office, and the doctor came in and he was a good decade younger than me!

arnies Level 7 Apr 17, 2018
