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.

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

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.

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+

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
