    At what age do you consider someone to be old?

    I was wondering about this.
    My children seem to think anyone that is older than 20 is old.

    Re: At what age do you consider someone to be old?

    When the age of innocence has faded away.
    Sometimes that happens alot sooner for some than it does other.
    :'(

    IRON MAIDEN

    I can't be compromising in my thoughts no more
    I can't prevent the times my anger fills my heart
    I can't be sympathizing with a new lost cause
    I feel I've lost my patience with the world and all

    And all the politicians and their hollow promises
    And all the lies, deceit and shame that goes with it
    The working man pays everything for their mistakes
    And with his life too if there was to be a war

    So we only get one chance can we take it
    And we only got one life can't exchange it
    Can we hold on to what we have don't replace it
    The age of innocence is fading.......like an old dream

    A life of petty crime gets punished with a holiday
    The victims' mind are scarred for life most everyday
    Assailants know just how much further they can go
    They know the laws are soft conviction chances low

    So we only get one chance can we take it
    And we only got one life can't exchange it
    Can we hold on to what we have don't replace it
    The age of innocence is fading.......like an old dream

    You can't protect yourselves even in your own home
    For fear of vigilante cries the victims wipe their eyes
    So now the criminal they laugh right in our face
    Judical system lets them do it, a disgrace

    Despondent public worries where it will all end
    We can't protect ourselves our kids from the crime trend
    We cannot even warn each other of evil in our midst
    They have more rights than us, you cannot call that just

    So we only get one chance can we take it
    And we only got one life can't exchange it
    Can we hold on to what we have don't replace it
    The age of innocence is fading.......like an old dream

    The age of innocence is fading like an old dream

    I would say at 50 you're getting there and at 60 you're officially old.

    Re: At what age do you consider someone to be old?

    When I was younger, I always thought 30 was the turning point....but as I tell my kids, age is all relative...now I say over 80 is old. When did that happen?!? ???

    at 30, you're no longer young.
    50 is getting ripe, but I'd say you're
    not an old man untill you're pushing 60
    (unless your prematurely balding with very grey hair, and look the part of old, then you can be old, and be younger at the same time.)

    I consider anyone 20 years older than me to be old. It has been that way my whole life and still will be when I am 80 ;D

    "Old" is whatever your age is + 20.
