    To ALL only children out there, as a child, were YOU more comfortable associating w/older children

    & adults, finding children your age to be quite immature & insufferable?Only children are quite mature for their ages.After all,they grew up in an adult environment..As a result of this,it is quite natural for only children to interface w/adults In addition to that,they can easily interact w/older children.Only children oftentimes find children their age to be quite problematic i.e. too childish for their interests As a child,my friends were often older than I was. I felt the most comfortable around them.I enjoyed the company of adults.I found children my age, for the most part, TRYING.

    Yes, I was.  I found children my own age tiresome.  They never seemed to have anything interesting to say.  Older children and adults were far more engaging and I enjoyed my conversations with them.  Even now, at the age of 53, I prefer the company of older, more experienced people.  They offer more to my intellect than reality TV and celeb gossip.

    That depends at what age. In elementary school, no, I much preferred kids my own age because I already spent so much time with adults at home and craved the playful interactions with my peers. But by the time I hit junior high/high school, most of my friends were out of school/in university, or adults.

    Even now at 26, my husband is 8 years older than me and most of my friends are around his age.
