You'll know you've finally reached old age when you check out a hot chick and she looks at you like you're an old perv.

#14 Posted by helwa1988 (2124 posts) -

old is when you start getting crows feet around your eyes.

#15 Posted by TAMKFan (32978 posts) -

I would go with 60.

#16 Posted by TheFlush (5670 posts) -

70

#17 Edited by KnightSkull (1481 posts) -

Anyone that is at least 10 years older than me.

#19 Posted by Pirate700 (46465 posts) -

In 2013...I'd say 70. 60 is pretty much the new 40. Not really old at all anymore.

#20 Posted by Zombiekiller360 (380 posts) -

50

#21 Posted by Mr_Cumberdale (10189 posts) -

I'd say 75 - 80.

#22 Edited by GamingTitan (633 posts) -

50s

#23 Edited by Lord_Daemon (24351 posts) -

I would go with 70 generally...but thinking about it I realize that my +70 year-old father is in better shape than I am so I suppose it's all relative depending upon where and how one has their feet planted in life.

#24 Posted by sukraj (23975 posts) -

100

#25 Edited by Nengo_Flow (10508 posts) -

1 - 12 = kids

12 - 18 = teenagers

18 - 24 = young adult

24 - 40 = adult

40 - 70 = middle-aged

70 - 100 = old

100+ = venerable

I would say young adult to 26.

Middle age 35-49.

Older Gentlemen/Lady 50-62.

Old 63-70 (65+ is the age they should make it illage for them to drive.)

You could go at any second, 71+

#30 Posted by dominer (3316 posts) -

I say people start getting old at 35.

you could go at any second at 40 also but that isn't old.

40 - 70 is getting old, but it isn't old.

and people do live into their 90's at least these days.

50 is equivalent to about 30 these days, much different than it was in the 1950's.

#32 Edited by destinhpark (4756 posts) -

I was gonna say 60 as well.

#33 Posted by ninjastar (9542 posts) -

Probably 60.

#34 Posted by tocool340 (20662 posts) -

60, though I prefer to say when a person begins acting old is when they should be considered as such...

#35 Posted by Trail_Mix (2579 posts) -

Anyone older than me.

#36 Posted by SexyJazzCat (1511 posts) -

When you grunt when you stand up. So like 40+

#37 Edited by riou7 (10838 posts) -

You consider yourself old when you bored with your life. That said, if you enjoy your life to the fullest, you'll never feel old :P

#38 Posted by certifieddata (46060 posts) -

70+

An old friend of my parents is 79 and he's more active than some people half his age.

I think once you get past the 40s, "old" depends on actual physical and mental condition just as much as age. Someone who is 30 is objectively not old, whereas someoone who is 55 may or may not be old. I've met 55 year old people who look better than me, are more healthy and lively than me, and who could easily kick my ass. But I've also met 55 year olds who look and act like they were 70. Once we get into middle age and beyond, "old" becomes more subjective and more variable and depends more on how that person lived and how they've taken care of themselves.

I'm 42 so I must be old right.

#42 Edited by Dogswithguns (10933 posts) -

@sukraj:

Humm, that makes sense. 35 and up are old.. when 70 and up considered dead then IMO.

35 isn't old at all, its not even middle-aged.

70 and up is old but as a person said a few posts up, he knows a 79 year old whos more like someone half his age in most ways.

Does depend on health and attitude.

#44 Posted by AutoPilotOn (8601 posts) -

I am 32 and I feel no older than when I was in my early 20s. What I feel is old gets older every year I age lol. When I was a kid I thought 30 or 40 was old. Now thats nothing, In fact I know some 60some year olds at work that are very active and dont really seem old.

#45 Posted by Michael0134567 (28651 posts) -

20. I'm getting old.

#46 Posted by worlock77 (22547 posts) -

You'll find the 30's are not much different than the 20's.....

the slowdown usually seems to be around 38 - 42 which corresponds with middle-age. This is often the time when good athletes start retiring.

#49 Posted by Lone_Wolf_Lance (124 posts) -

Around 50-60.

#50 Posted by megagene (23034 posts) -

I'd say around 65.
