You are old to a young woman in her twenties, so what is the problem??? It does bother you or you would not bother to post on here. You get all sorts on a dating site so you have to just take it with a grain of salt.
? If it happened once, get over it. Some of us have had much worse and completely uncalled for.

It's just as annoying when people ask you if you've lied about your age over and over again~

Last summer when I tried to get into a nearby provincial park at the senior rate, they told me that I'm too young.

Well, I just feel sorry for our young folks....we lived up the good years and left them the shit.......not to mention, they have to read about what we've seen and wonder if we told them the truth. LOL

I love this whole " You're Old" hangup people have. I noticed the Who (when they were touring) stopped playing "My Generation" with the infamous line " Hope I die before I get Old" :-)

Tell people you're not old you're a survivor. Luckily, I look young for my age so I don't get this question a lot.

Exactly. Saying that someone is old when they are thirty years younger is only stating the obvious, after all.
Why even bother to counter that or respond?? It is a fact.

Just don't pursue them for relationships. Otherwise, this should not bother you; they're kids.

I don't like it "but you're pretty for your age." "You're pretty for your size." I just tell them I have not lived half my life to have earned their "compliment." And that I'm pretty at an size.

The people in my life who know me would never say that to me! People who don't know me don't matter so if someone said that to me, I'd give them my best 'knowing look' and walk away. Methinks young people don't want to think about getting older, scares them.

How do you respond to something like this? It apparently seems like a put-down but it really dosen't offend me. Am I expected to crawl away in embarrassment because of my age? I really cannot think of how to respond to someone who says this to me as it just seems childish and rude. After all, I would not look at a person in a wheelchair and say "you're crippled". How would you respond?



the fact that someone actually thinks of it as a put down doesn't give it weight; it takes away their credibility.

Fact of the matter is; people descriminate against people who are young all the time too; and I know they don't like it either; they want to be taken seriously in spite of their age. People descriminate against people who are older (especially in jobs) all the time; it is not fair.

But someone who is trying to slam someone for just the owning of their age? Shows they fully don't get the positives that come with age; experience, memories, relationships, wisdom, and a whole lot of living. I'm proud of my age and love it; anyone who wants to diss me for it; that's not on me; it's on them. It just means I won't waste my time in dialogue with someone that shallow minded... I wouldn't bother to respond... I'd just smile with a WHOLE lot of memories flashing in my head (some of which are pretty incredible), know that they just complimented me in spite of their intent; and I'd move on to conversation with a more interesting diverse person who gives and deserves respect. Regardless of their age.

What's the issue?

I'm in my mid 50's so I'm 'old' to somebody in their 20's. When I visit my mother in her senior's care facility the inmates are 'old' to me.

I like 'old' rock and roll. My favirite socks are 'old'. My cat is 'old'.... my cat and I are both 'old' compared to the neighbor kid's pet hamster.

Ya...it all depends who you hang out with. I let a girfriend of mine talk me into attending a singles dance about 10 years ago and it was held at a local Senior Centre. I said Brenda, " It's for seniors, it's being held at a senior's community association." She kept saying no, no. they just needed a venue to host the event.

Sure enough the hall was loaded in seniors. We did stay for about an hour or so, we had to wait on other friends that were on the way. But while we were waiting we kept getting asked to dance, or hit on...we were the "young hot babes"..haha

I always reply with something like "that's right, I old enough to have had every thought you've ever had at least 5 times.


Hahaha. That was fantastic. Second post too. Should have just stuck a fork in the thread. That nailed it.

I usually say, "Yep, you're right. I also have drawers that are older than you. What's your point?"

I just turned 45 last month--or, as I prefer to say, " I celebrated the 24th anniversay of my 21st birthday." It confuses the younger folks and I walk off smiling......

I like the response on the first page: "Go to your room." lol!
Yes, I'm old, to a 20-something. To an 80 year old, I guess I'm young.
I never bought the "don't trust anyone over 30" theory, so it doesn't bug me.

Whatever....at least I'm here for someone to say to me, "I'm old"....and I tell them that I hope that someday they can be in my shoes.....i.e., live long enough for someone to call them "old."

Well I am a smoker and do tan from time to time. I must be a really, really old looking hag according to some in here! lol...A lot of folks take me for 8-10 years younger than my age. Myself when I look in the mirror? I see every darned day I have lived! lol...It's funny when I hear my 23 year old Son talk. To him, someone who is 40 is on their deathbed. I say to him " hey, watch that boy"! and he says, I am different cuz I am his Mom? wth? lol....All relative I guess

Most men think I do not look my age! I have my settings set

Many of the Old guys try to pick up young women
