    At what point do you become 'middle aged'?

    I was thinking about this. When do you consider yourself middle aged? I'm 34. Am I middle aged yet? I still feel like a kid most of the time.


    Any thoughts?


    Maybe it's when you turn down getting some for sleep?

    Re: At what point do you become 'middle aged'?

    I'm turning 40 this year and I'm thinking I'm past the mid point. What's the median age for an American male now? I would think that middle age has to star around late 30's if not sooner.



    What ever happened to truth, justice and the American Way?

    You are only middle aged when you can't pull tail under 30.

    When you start asking this question, you're there. By the way, I'm 35 and middle aged.

    Re: At what point do you become 'middle aged'?

    For me it is a floating answer. It is whatever round number that lies between my age and that of my older brothers.

    Any thoughts?
    I'm 33 and feel like I'm about at the mid-point. Loss of hair, metabolism not keeping up with eating/drinking habits, reminiscing of the good ol' college days, muscle pain after minimal physical activity (golf/bowling/yard work), creeking knees, etc. are all signs I'm not a young buck any more.

    I think this has more to do with # of years of marriage than age.

    No one lives forever, no one. But with advances in modern science and my high level income, it's not crazy to think I can live to be 245, maybe 300. Heck, I just read in the newspaper that they put a pig heart in some guy from Russia. Do you know what that means?
