When I was 20 I didn't like partying like a 2o year old. Why the hell would I want to now? Why would anyone?

I think there are different reasons for partying. I am 42. I go out on the weekends and enjoy myself drinking and dancing. I have three children, two of my children are a young adult and a teenager, and one child that is young. I had my children young, so I was unable to do the "party" scene. I had to be the responsible one, but now they are older, I can go out and enjoy myself now before I'm too old not to.

I'm 45, and, when I go out, I still party pretty hard, as far as dancing!!! As long as our health holds out (which we have to work on), I don't think there's an age limit.

Now, if you mean UNHEALTHY practices, like alcohol...NO. And I do drink too much sometimes. Wake up with a wicked hangover. But we can party without drinking a drop! Analyzing my own occasional alcohol binges, I've determined that, for me, a lot of it is unleashing repressed emotions (most notably, for me, anger). You gotta let that sh-t out. Alcohol medicates deeper feelings. Dancing and exercise are great for this! My best workouts are when I'm pissed off.

A drink or two in a social setting is acceptable but "loss-of-control" partying in your mid-to-late 30's? Too much for me.

lmao, I agree! I wish I could have had this much fun when I was in my 20's. People in their 20's are like children and have bed times. They just can't keep up

At 32, I can definitely still party like I could when I was younger. I just don't want to.

The odd drink is enough for me these days, & when I do have a few too many, I remember that I'm NOT still 20 the next morning. Like many others, work & the kids take priority for me, & I do find it a bit sad to see someone 30+ hitting the bars all the time, night after night. What are they trying to prove, I wonder?

When I was a young man (22), my roommates were over 30 and partied like rock stars.

From my experience, people over 30 who party do it to impress their younger friends and convince themselves they're still "cool". Its much easier impressing a group of twenty-somethings than facing reality of being over 30.

right.

the question of "can i party like i was 20?" should be prefaced by the question "should i party like i was 20?"

;p

It all comes down to what you consider partying. But from what I've seen and experienced, going out and blowing lots of $$$ yours or others just to get wasted, then going somewhere after the bar closes to continue to be a fool is partying to many. Sounds smart! I guess if you really enjoy this ongoing foolishness and if you hopefully gain something meaningful from it like friendship, it's worth it. I think it's very overrated, beacause people often get carried away and lose control. And it's really not healthy. Besides, most 20 year olds don't have a clue how to party. They often are very clicky and somewhat anti-social and can't handle their liquor. From what I've seen at young bars and so on, it often leads to trouble.

LOL, actually I was pretty much a nerdy student when I was 20, I had no clue on what to do in a club, I just stand there like an idiot. Now that I am older (30) I become alittle experienced in the club scene. At this time, I don't think I will stand out on being an "old man" among university crowds....yet

But there are some real matter facing, being 30, most of my old clubbing friends have settled down, so I don't have anyone to go party with and I had to find newer and younger groups to go with. So I will always had to hang out with 19-23 year olds. Also the "Been there done that" it is a real thing. As I got older, I feel I want to move on from the club scene and do things that has more substance.

Or maybe because I live in Vancouver, where nightlife is absolute trash. Maybe if I am in Shibuya district in Tokyo, I would rekindle my party spirit. I was there last year, at the age of 29, I did feel the fire rekindle with the trance music.

Not so much a youth stamina thing as motivation. I'm in better shape at 44 than I was at 20.

The problem I usually have with staying up late "partying" is that I am rarely around the type of people I would want to do that with. But get a good house party with the right folks and I can stay up until dawn. I think that's the key. I would stay up all night when I was younger because I had literally nothing better to do. But now I have all sorts of things planned usually the next day, so being dead dog tired for no good reason isn't worth it.

Yes. I party just as hard. Most of my Caribbean and Latin friends in their 30s/40s do as well. I don't drink alcohol so it is easy for me.

As in making the same immature, silly little moves as a 20 year old? Nope. There are those however who never grow up.

Wow this thread was made like 5 years ago.

Anyway, I am 34 and I hang out with people from their early 20's to their mid 40's and I go through the drinking games with the younger crowds, end up victorious :P and am fine. Not judged at all...

Although I am blessed, I've been told I look as young as 18 (and that was when I was 30 and met my now best friend who is now 24) and usually people pick 27ish, sometimes, and very rarely, someone will get it closer to my age.

But ehh, yeah. I can't handle hangovers as well as I used to. I don't get how anybody can function while having one, I just sleep it off or refrain from doing anything and make sure my party nights are not followed by a workday of any kind.

Yes You can party hard when you are 30 and over, but in order to do so, you may have to go to bed a little earlier, so you will be able to get up at 4 am in order to make it to work on time. Cheers.

I'm a 37 year-old semi-retired underground-party/club DJ. Someone has to teach these noobs how it's done! I still go out once a month when my son is with his mother and step-dad. I'm always chipper at the office, and I always take care of my responsibilities as a full-time single-dad. I live life as I want, and I smile often. As long as you keep your life and priorities in a healthy balance, party on! Live life as you want, and smile often!

I can but I refuse because I have priorities and ambitions in life that I want achieve. Yes I go out on the odd night but my mindset is on accomplishing goals .
