    What age do you think is the most enjoyable and why?

    I don't believe it's an (age) per se but rather a feeling of being on top of the world as in confortable in your skin and happy with how your life is going.
    For some people this was in high school days, college days, a boost in career, falling in love, starting/raising a family, empty nest, being debt free, or retired. Our feelings about our circumstances dictate our happiness during a particular period in our lives.
    Unfortunately we often don't realize a particular time is the best or more enjoyable until after that time has passed. I guess that is by design since we don't know what tomorrow holds for us. It's only when we are near the end that we can truly reflect back and say that was the best time of my life and we (believe) nothing is going to top that period during our remaining time on earth.

    27 years ago, when I was 35 years old, I thought it was the best age possible. At 35 a person can relate to a younger crowd, the middle of the road group and even an older audience. I always said that was the perfect age.

    Although I'm 62 now, I'm still active and joke and kid around just like I did when I was younger. So, what's the problem you may ask? Apparently my antics bother some of the younger crowd. They look at my outer shell as if to say, "Knock it off old guy." Some of the younger clerks in stores have even outwardly shown their disdain for an older person fooling around.

    However, I'm now financially secure, in a loving marriage, have watched my adult children mature and grow and am witnessing the same with my grandchildren. So, I guess I would have to admit that where I am right now is the perfect age.

      That's interesting about the 'old guy' thing. It is funny how we judge people. I was going to say 35. I am 35 right now, and I feel like I'm more aware in life and have a finger on the pulse of what I want now - plus lots of future left.

      35 is by far the most accepting age. Other age groups place people in categories, but not so when a person is 35.

    I like Dashing Scorpio's answer; however, I must add that in my life I think 13 was both an amazing time and carefree. Now that I am 13 for the 4th time I have finally realized this.
    NOTE: (Disclaimer)
    When I turn 13 for the 5th time I retain the flexibility to change my opinion on this.

    I dont have an age that was most enjoyable. I do know each year as I get older, I am enjoying life a lot more. I find that being in my 60's is a wonderful adventure, and I love re-inventing myself.

    Well, once I retired, we moved to an area with so much to do.  Add all the wonderful activities to my no longer feeling the need to please anyone....but me AND That means over 60 is the most enjoyable.  I do what I want when I want and pretty much say what I want.  We are not rich either.  It take a LOT less to live when you retire!

    Outside of severe abuse and bullying, I think childhood is the most enjoyable. Between the ages of 5 and 7, you play and eat, have someone take care of all your needs, you have no responsibilities, school is easy, and you're still cute with a sweet, obedient disposition. Life is good when you're 5 years old.

    Truthfully, I have enjoyed every age I have been and I wouldn't even want to relive any age again.   But, I would have to say the most enjoyable for me was ages 18-22.  I was in college and old enough to enjoy everything of life but did not have to be a fully responsible adult.  I worked my way through college, so I did have a huge responsibility but not as a fully registered adult. lol.

    As a whole, I would say being a child, 4 years old. You are old enough to know what is going on, but everything is still so new. You don't have to worry about school or a job, you just live life. Most 4 year old children don't look at other people and judge them based on their appearance, nor do they care about there own. They are just happy & content. The littlest things bring the most joy to a 4 year old... climbing up trees, running through a sprinkler, playing in the snow... People forget what it is like to be totally free of self-centeredness. Its truly a wonderful feeling so few adults experience anymore.

    I think that the age you are in at this time is the happiest.  You have your happy past memories to look back on, your present to be thankful for, and your future to look forward to.

    For me personally, I enjoyed my early to late 30s the most. I didn't have a great childhood experience, and I had cancer in my mid 20s. After my healing both physically and emotionally from my illness, I was able to enjoy life more with my wonderful husband and my beautiful children. I was also able to be a stay-at-home which is the greatest job on earth. Additionally, I was my children's teacher as we homeschooled. I got to go to every dance, swim, and softball practice or event. I was able to be involved in other extra curricular activities with my girls and make wonderful friends who parented children my girls' age. I'm now 45, and life has not been as enjoyable since my girls had started driving. My youngest graduates this year. It's tough going from being involved with my children 24/7 to rarely seeing them now. I miss it. But, I know better things are in store for the future when they get married and have their own families.

    Just before you become a teenager, about 10-12. So before the angst, social judgement, and emotional turmoil, but at an age when friendships are valued and fears are minimal.
