    I'm not old yet. But I'd say 40 if you are pessimistic about how you age or 60 if you are optimistic.

    When I graduated :feelsbadman it was at 22. I even took some random test on YouTube few months ago and it said my mental age is 30+. Though it's not accurate I guess

    Dunno. I consider people are getting old when they are 60+, but it depends on how you see yourself, I guess. I'm still in my twenties but have felt like an old hag sometimes, and young at other times.

    Depends on your mental and on your body. If your mind is fresh and energetic, and your body is fit and/or energetic, then you can be running 65 and still feel 24. I think gnut is a best example of this.

    However, if you're not taking good care of yourself, then you could be 22 and feel 65. I am a great example of this, but this is because of commuting traffic.

    If you eat healthy and exercise, then you should never start feeling old.

    It really varies from person to person.

    Personally around 35 I might start to.

    Mentally, always trying to learn new things and new skills, and solving new problems, keeps your mind flexible and sharp. Wisdom does tend to come with time and experience, which maybe does cause one to feel 'old' sometimes, even if having new insight into things can be quite exciting. :^_^

    Physically, after working for almost a couple decades, you start to feel it unfortunately. Stiff back and joints, sore muscles. Exercise helps with that, but wear and tear does take its toll.

    Eating well and sleeping well on a regular schedule does far more than we give it credit for, if you ask me. Shift work especially messes with your body's hormone rhythms, and increases your risk factors for all sorts of things.

    As my father used to tell me, take care of your body for the first 30 years of your life, and for the rest of your life your body will take care of you.

    (Yeah, I was a biochemist in a former life, and I still work in a health related field.)

    I'm 32 and i don't feel at all old. You're only old if you tell yourself your old.

    I mean, aren't you like 60 or something? Perfect thread for you to educate us whippersnappers. `
