When someone points out that you're old..Page 15 of 20    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20)
If you are contacting women 30 years younger then they are going to respond that way. Get over it. Dont kid us, you were trying to hook them.

Your response is even more stupid and considering you are supposed to be mature, even more irksome.

I had twenty yr. old guys in mind and not a possible female date. So my comment would have been more as a jest. I was in College when I was 55 so I got many of those to old remarks from my young classmates. It not always what you say but how you say it.

Interestingly enough, I get that from younger women too! A snide remark on a bus, etc. I look at them and say "I have already been your age and wouldn't want to have to repeat that. If we are lucky, we will all get to be all ages."

Another retort I use if someone remarks that I am "old." I say "what is it like to be 21 and have absolutely no future or hope of any kind. I got to apply my fantastic education, work in 3 wonderful careers, and live on my own since age 18. You will experience NONE of these. For the more mature, a good retort is "I am one of the last remaining Americans who get to enjoy their own social security benefits. If you manage to ever find a job, you will pay into a system all your life, and will never receive one dime."

I just politely inform them that some day, if they are lucky enought, they too will be my age and lets just hope they look as good.

Your question reminds me of one of the best movie lines ever written. In "Fried Green Tomatoes" when Kathy Bates was waiting for a parking spot...and 2 blond bimbos in a lil red sports car fly up the aisle (from the wrong direction to boot) and take the space...then they taunt her with the comment: "Let's face it...we're younger and have better reflexes"....after she rams their lil red convertible....repeatedly and they're screaming...."what are you doing?!?!?" , she simply replies....."Let's face it....I'm older and have better insurance".

As you said, it IS childish and rude. Aren't you glad that you're secure in who you are (a characteristic one develops with "old age") and that you don't have to live life around constantly drumming up some teenage drama in order to feel good about yourself and your life?

Dear OP:

I have the opposite problem...younger men are always hitting on me. I am the one who says to them, "I am too old for you!"


Older men and women seeking age-appropriate relationships need not worry if some young thing says "You are old." because we are not looking to date someone who still does not know crud from Crisco. My advice, don't sweat it...she will be your age one day and someone will say "You are old!" to her...karma is a real beotch that way.

I'd say "no shit," and move on with the discussion.

There will always be someone older or younger. That is part of life.

I've told people they were too young before.

Seems like a very trivial problem to me. My children used to let what others said or did bother them to the point I believe they were actually imagining some things such as people giving them dirty looks. I just casually told them I don't usually look for those types of responses so I don't notice such things to begin with. I decided a long, long time ago that people say and do rude things because they are insecure with themselves.

why not just ignore it. To her you are old. Be the more mature one and just let it slip on by and dont bite.

If they are saying "Old" as an insult it means they think you are stuck in a time warp...if they are saying "Old" it also could mean you have wisdom from your life experiences. I guess it would depend on why they are making that type of statement.

I consider being 52 awesome! I mean seriously...at 42 I was told I had small chance to make it 5 years...so bring on OLD~!~!~

Beside being OLD I can get by with more things...like oops I forgot ::tilts blonde head to side with dull stare:::::

A better question is why are you going to let someone who would say that bother you?

Doesn't bother me at all.

I sometimes get it at the gym...have had it out backpacking with younger folks. Usually it's complimentary along with some statement of incredulousness such as 'you're older than my father!"

A slightly brain damaged lady walked up to me in a crowded hospital room last week and asked me how old I thought she was. I lied about what I thought and graciously shaved 15 years off my true estimate. She was delighted with my answer. She then asked my age and when I told her she exclaimed "You look ALOT older than that!"
****.
Good luck with that brain injury, lady.

I look in the mirror and I don't see an old person, I take a snapshot and wonder who is that old guy in that photo. I can understand how someone much younger would think I was old.

Some says, you're old. Answer should be, I'd rather be old than.... stupid, rude, ignorant, or whatever word fits the occasion.
