Poll: Your Age

Re: Poll: Your Age

  • I am 38.

    Very comfortable with my age. I don't really get being upset about your age - it doesn't change anything! Many people think I am a lot younger so that helps.

    My favorite age is always right now.

  • How old are you? 25

    Are you comfortable with your age? Yes

    What was your "favorite" age (if you had one)? probably this one. I love my life just as it is right now, never been happier.


  • 29 years old (30 in 4 months and 10 days)

    I am trying to be comfortable. Sometimes when I think about turning 30, I get really excited to be in a new age range. Out of that college/adjusting to life age range and into a more settled age. Other times, I have mini freak outs that wow, I am 30 years old. I feel so YOUNG still. No way I can be 30.

    I loved my last 2.5 years in college so that would be 20-22. Good times. Also 25 has a lot of memories because it was the year that I met Chris and fell in loooooovvvvveeeee. Wink

  • How old are you? 28

    Are you comfortable with your age? Yes

    What was your "favorite" age (if you had one)? Every year seems to get better and better, but...I had a ton of fun my first 2 years of college. So I'll say when I was 19-20.

    I'm 27.

    I'm ok with it. For some reason the thought of turning 27 was scarier than the thought of turning 30, I think I'll be fine with that.  I guess 27 is just momentous because I am now officially in my late twenties. Silly I know!

    Hmmm, I liked 24-26. Apparently I liked being mid-twenties. Stick out tongue

    Yeah, but generally you feel like being late 20's is scary because you're close to 30. At least it was for everyone I knew. You may not realize it until right before you turn 30 because it still feels a long way off at 27. I wanted to stay late 20's forever/redo them. It's a great age because you're still young enough to not feel totally overwhelmed by adult stuff yet but ppl take you more seriously when you're over 25. But really crappy things happened to us in those years. I feel a bit cheated but oh well I'm enjoying things now, too.

    goodness, if this isn't the really "adult" stuff DH and I have been dealing with (we've been having to make some pretty "adult" decisions) then I want nothing to with my thirties! lol! I totally get what you're saying though. Smile

    As for being taken seriously, I just had a parent say something snide about my age today. She actually thought I was 20.  Uhh, I don't think I could have a teaching credential if I was 20 lady. (I know, I know, I'll love it when I'm older.) 

    Yeah, and some of my students (any probably even some of yours!) have to deal with some very adult things which is awful. So everyone's journey is different. I made some decisions at 27 I didn't think I'd be making until I was closer to 57... Maybe I'll really like being 80 Wink... I always wanted to live til I was 88 anyway!
  • How old are you?  23

    Are you comfortable with your age?  Of course! What's not to be comfortable with??

    What was your "favorite" age (if you had one)? I really enjoyed being 17, I was kind of a wild child and did a lot of fun things that I'm too mature to enjoy now.

  • How old are you? 29

    Are you comfortable with your age? Yes, but I am a little sad about turning 30.  I like being the baby and the only one still in my 20s.

    What was your "favorite" age (if you had one)? 22 was a big year for me and also ironically my favorite number.

  • I'll be 25 on Saturday! Woohoo!

    I'm very comfortable with my age, although I have to keep telling myself to ignore baby fever and enjoy my youth.

    ?My favorite age is now. Exciting life things are happening, and there is still so much to look forward to!

  • How old are you? 25

    Are you comfortable with your age? yep

    What was your "favorite" age (if you had one)?  21...legal drinking and gambling, an amazing trip to Vegas, lived on my own for the first time with awesome roomies, and started Sac State

  • How old are you? ? 35

    Are you comfortable with your age? ? yep- the comfort came with age, actually. ?Though I'll admit that?I'm glad this poll has shown me I'm not the only one on the board who is 35+.

    What was your "favorite" age (if you had one)? ?I've loved most years, but I'm seriously looking forward to being 70-80 and being cranky, eccentric, and whistling at young men. ?;-)

  • How old are you? 25, but I will be 26 in 26 days!

    Are you comfortable with your age? Pretty comfortable

    What was your "favorite" age (if you had one)? I would say 25 has been great. 18 was good too.

  • BTW, all you who look younger than you are...

    When I was 28 and finished residency, people still thought I was in HIGH SCHOOL. They would literally ask me as soon as I walked in the exam room "How OLD are you?" it was awful, I hated it. They thought I was a candy striper. 

    Now, let me just say how wonderful it is to say "I'm 39" and see the look on people's faces.  It's totally worth the years of torment. I only don't get carded when I am with DH (he looks younger than he is but still older than me).

  • 40

    Still getting used to it -- it's only been one day

    I've liked pretty much every age I've been, but 35 was a very good year all around.

  • How old are you? 31

    Are you comfortable with your age? i wish i wasn't in my thirties, but since there's nothing i can do with it i'm ok.  i know i don't look 31, so that makes me feel better.

    What was your "favorite" age (if you had one)? i really liked 27.  i don't know why.  i think it was just always my favorite number so i was looking forward to it and it didn't disappoint.  21 was my least favorite.  Sad

  • How old are you?  28

    Are you comfortable with your age?  yes...but I dont want to get older than 28. 30 terrifies me!

    What was your "favorite" age (if you had one)? I would say 25-27 those were good years...some hard times, but good times.

  • How old are you?  27

    Are you comfortable with your age?   Yes. DH is the same age and thinks he's getting old, but I don't feel that way at all.

    What was your "favorite" age (if you had one 21. I turned 21 the year I studied abroad and it was the best year of my life.

  • 27. Is it weird I keep forgetting?

    I'm totally comfortable with it. I used to feel like I would have to 'prove' myself beyond my age (professionally) but now I'm comfortable with my age and don't care who thinks I'm too young (or, if I look too young). There are bigger things out there to worry about.

    Ha! My favorite time? When I was 15. I miss the days of no responsiblities, living around my social calendar and being in school and working less time in the week than my 'off' time. My second favorite time? 23-25, but I think that's because of the vacations I took, finishing school and getting married.

  • How old are you?  38...almost 39

    Are you comfortable with your age?  Absolutely--I love my age. I finally feel comfortable in my own skin

    What was your "favorite" age (if you had one)? Right now! And I am honestly looking forward to the next few years and turning 40.

  • How old are you?  28

    Are you comfortable with your age?  Yep

    What was your "favorite" age (if you had one)? I'm going to go with 25.  I was completely comfortable and happy being single and 25 and owning my own home and being fiercely independent and getting to know myself so well...and then I met Todd and everything changed.  Including my priorities, how I viewed myself and what I wanted for my life.  I was 100% happy and then BAM!...I got to find out what 200% happy feels like (and I'm an Engineer, so I know the impossibility of that statement...but it still totally applies, which is what makes it so cool!  It's like Infiniti + 1.  Not possible, but...you know, awesome, huge, etc etc etc.)

    How old are you? 31

    Are you comfortable with your age? i wish i wasn't in my thirties, but since there's nothing i can do with it i'm ok.  i know i don't look 31, so that makes me feel better.

    What was your "favorite" age (if you had one)? i really liked 27.  i don't know why.  i think it was just always my favorite number so i was looking forward to it and it didn't disappoint.  21 was my least favorite.  Sad

    I had NO idea that you were 31 years old. I thought you were in your mid-20's. 25, 26 at the most. You have such a youthful face! As someone who still gets told she looks like she is 20, I hope you take that as a compliment!

  • 32 (although people are surprised when I tell them. They usually think I'm in my mid-20s.)

    Yes

    I don't have a favorite, because with each year I find something that I like about it.

  • 27

    yeah for the most part. I don't want to rush my life but I do want to keep moving ahead

    hmm 5..when my baby brother came in to the world. Looking back that was SOO exciting because life would be pretty boring w/o him! second fave probably 16 just independent enough but still not full of responsibilities.

  • How old are you?  27 with be 28 in 8 days!

    Are you comfortable with your age?  Yup I am comfortable.  I am ready for what life has in store for me.

    What was your "favorite" age (if you had one)? I think 23 was a good year for me.  I did a lot of growing up and found a lot of strength.
