About, AGE. Would you wish to be younger, older or remain your current age, and WHY?
I would hate to go through puberty and all that teenage angst again! I would though like to go back a few years maybe to 30, (ok that's 10 years) with the knowledge I have now. It's a waste of time regretting the things you have done but it's annoying to look back and see how silly and stubborn you were. The world has changed so much, I actually feel sorry for young people trying to get by in such a shallow and judgemental world. Sadly, they will be judged on how they look and how much money they have. It's so wrong! Sorry, I went off on a bit of a tangent there effer, but your question got me thinking.
I would like to be 20 years younger. I'm not unhappy with my current age but time seems to be going so quick I'm scared I will run out of time before I am ready if that makes sense. I've still so much I want to see and do but everyday life such as work gets in the way.
When I was about 20 years old, I wanted to be older. I liked always the forties. At this age people are more prone to think with the head instead of imitating other people´s behaviors.
I know that wanting to remain young or getting older is not on our own hands to decide, but I prefer the old age than the young age, At a young age, one is just repeating the behaviors of other people. It is like not having the capacity to reason correctly. Moreover, at a young age, people are always getting into trouble.
I prefer to remain my current age, and continue getting older at a regular pace.
Like Christin53, I would like to be about 20 years younger. It seems every day something minor goes wrong - like with an used car. It wears on a person. I would love to be 40 again.
As one who believes there's a purpose for these temporary space-suits, as-is does just fine. However, if the accumulated knowledge and wisdom could stay intact, it would be tempting to wish for a slightly younger chassis at times.
For me, age isn't the issue. I would just like to be healthy! But if it really comes to a question of age, I will take what I've got...which is OLD! Today's world is not one I would want to be facing as a young person, that's for sure!
TIME......I hear you.....some days the only good thought is that we don't have to deal with this insanity for another 50 years!
Ditto for me! I love my age and working to get healthier. I would like the energy that I have when 20.
Sometimes I want to be younger, but mostly, I know I'm right where I'm supposed to be.
I would love to stay right here where I am right now for another 20 yrs.....or longer? Not sure. But I am not as stupid as a teenager and early 20th anymore, got my experiences and knowledge, grew some maturity. I have no serious health issues, still full of energy and lots of things I would like to do. I often beat the young ones with my energy at 46. Love life right now to the fullest!
I love the age I am now....I just want the body and face I had 25 years ago...
It's much easier being older than younger...less drama, more patience.
I liked the way I felt at 36 and up. I always said "life began at 40 for me". That had something to do with finally finding the love of my life and "everything felt so good". So for me mid 30's was wonderful. I understand also that when we go to the "other side" we are all about that age. There's a twist for you Paula - to think about. : )
I choose my age every year because I cannot truly be anything or anywhere else. Aging is a part of the natural process; therefore, to wish to be younger or older creates and shows a gap in identity. Our substance belongs to our age. To go to any other age involves some sort of denial that is not useful to the satisfaction of life.
My age is the place where I am to be at this moment in time that is why I choose it. It is what is true and real. For me, anything else would be a wrong perspective to the joys, sufferings, and satisfaction of each stage of life. To choose another age is to cause partiality and a yearning for something that cannot be and can never be.
My age is where I belong. Any other age does not belong to me; if something does not belong to me, I cannot enjoy it. So, I choose my age every year.
This is an interesting question-- I have not seen the other answers, but If I were younger-- would I still have to repeat the same mistakes?
I suppose people would love to be younger, physically (unless you are 20)-- or if you could go back with the knowledge you have gained in the meantime--. Otherwise, I suppose it is best to move forward from where you are now, and take in all of the leaning experiences along the way.
I'll take my life one year at a time, and enjoy each age for exactly what it is.
51 ends today, and it's been a great age to be.
What does it feel like to be 52? I don't know! I'll start finding out tomorrow.
I wish to be at my current age cause by getting older i have to face various responsibilities and i miss my healthy relations with my friends relatives if i get older
I know I wouldn't want to be younger. Been there and done that. My age now is working out well for me. Regardless of what I do I'm going to get older....so I guess my answer is current age. Let the good times roll forward. I never go backwards. Never, ever. Ever. What about you Effer?
I'm cool where I am. To wish to be younger.....would mean "going back," and like you, gf....I do not go in reverse...I intend to protect my "young-at-heart," attitude forever...so,....Like Peter Pan...I'll never Grow up!

What do you think about a younger woman dating an older man? (or vice versa)I've been dating a man that's 30 and I'm 23. We get a lot of jokes about it but there are also those who are against it simply because of our age difference. Do you think this is justified or does age really matter?

Do you look younger or older than your age?My sister-in-law looks really young for her age. She is petite so that helps. When she was in her 30's, she used to win big stuff animals at the amusement parks where they try to guess your age within 5 years. Me? I think I look...

How does it feel to get older?If I fear anything, it's getting older. For those of you who are already 40 + or even 60 + how is it vs. when you were in your 20's.

Do you think age makes a person more mature?Whether you are 20 or 50 years old, do you think that the older you are, the more smarter you are because you have been through more in life?

Why on earth do you think 60 year old wrinkly fat bald men get 21 year old girls?Even if it were “natural,” there’s nothing innocent or harmless or healthy about older men pursuing ceaselessly younger women. The cost is high to everyone involved. While a few young women may be attracted to...
