    Spinoff: What do you like about getting older?

    Lame, but the previous thread had me feeling all old and like there's not much to look forward to other than nose hairs, glasses, and hurting when I get out of bed every day.

    What is good about getting older?

    I like finally having the income, free time, and wherewithal to travel and do all of the things I couldn't wait to do when I was younger.

    I like not having to live with roommates/siblings or share my food.

    My young man cares are slipping away. Filter comes off more often than it used to.

    You obviously don't have children... Sorry, I don't mean to rain on your feel good thread, but those things are all temporary (if you choose to procreate).

    Still in my mid-20s and trying to save money, so I have three roommates. I wouldn't wish that on anyone past college.

    Re: Spinoff: What do you like about getting older?

    I stopped caring what other people think. If they don't like me, meh.

    I think through the consequences of things now, which generally makes my decisions end better.

    No, I don't have kids. And I don't plan on completely giving up the things I enjoy now if I do. Plenty of friends/family have just as active a social life as they did pre-kids.

    Being able to have an excuse for selective hearing. I still hear pretty good when I want to.

    It is nice getting to the point where you can just get something when you want or need it. Having kids is awesome beyond compare.
