Depends on how old you are.

I’m 13 but I’m just curious what other people think

jrpowell's avatar

I’m saying that I am thirty and I don’t consider it old. You probably do.

I’m 17.

30 is old.

ketoneus's avatar

I just got compared to someone’s father, so I guess the answer is 30.

@johnpowell: they should also turn down that rap music.

It goes fast.. Enjoy it while you have it. And pothead, 13 years can go fast when you don’t care that you are eating the ice cream without a spoon.

I’m 20 and to JP and ketoneus, I don’t consider 30 old. To me anyone my moms age (50) or older is old. I said “my moms age” because as I get older so will she and then the age I consider old will change and I’ll never have to call myself old. Loophole?

I consider high 50’s-60’s to be old. My dad’s 54 and I don’t consider him old at all. Maybe it’s because he’s pretty healthy and looks young- but still…50 isn’t old.

Old is relative…similar to the way crazy is relative. Relatives however, are not relative :/

Yea i dont think theres any particular age where you become old. Its a state of mind really. For instance, my grandparents are 77 and 76 but still do a lot of activities and travel around, i dont really think they are old.But my grandmother on the other side however is only 64 but does nothing at all and i think shes old. I think your old once you can no longer care for yourself and need other people to take care of you, or just stop “living” life.

Old is not an age- it is a state of mind.

Some people are young over 60 and others are born old. It is an attitude, a way of embracing life and being positive.

I’m only going to say this once. AGE IS JUST A STATE OF MIND!!!!!!!!!! you can be 62 (Tim Curry) or you can be 15 (me). Anything can be considered old and anything can be considered young.

That little old lady tottering across the street on a green light? Yeah, that’s old.

Here we go again with Tim Curry.

You don’t have to be a certain age to be considered old. Everyone has a kid inside them somewhere. You are as old as you feel.

richmarshall's avatar

Every year ‘old’ isn’t so ‘old’.

When I was 18, 40 seemed really old… that I am fast approaching 40, it really seems pretty young.

kevbo's avatar

When you look at young people and regard them as disrespectful idiots who are likely to be the last generation of humans to inhabit the planet thanks to their utter ignorance of anything beyond bad pop music, then you are old. For me, it started at 34.

Also, the when the contemplation of sex with the random, hot, young chick who just walked by starts making you wince inside, it’s a sign you’re getting a little long in the tooth.

Mrs_Dr_Frank_N_Furter's avatar

babygalll. It will always be Tim Curry. like 99.9999999999999999999999 (and so on) of my answers include him. He is a pretty good reference.

fabulous's avatar

Your only as old as you feel

Vincentt's avatar

I’d say someone’s old once he/she starts complaining about “today’s youth” and how it all used be better.

I’m an old soul ;-)
