    You Are Only As Old As You Act

    I used to worry about getting old. But then again, what is old?  When I was a teenager, old was something around 30.  When I was 30, I started dreading turning 40.  Now that I'm in my mid 40s, I'm actually looking forward to turning 50.Why you might ask?  Well when I turn 50...

    As Long As They Are of Legal Age

    I really think that age should not matter in relationships, unless one party is not above the age of consent, OR if there is more than 30 years between the two.  I think 30+ years, common interests are less likely ....

    It's Only A Number!

    I have never quite understood the fixation we have with age. So many toss pennies into that fountain of youth and hope to be "forever young." They spend fortunes on creams, pills and invasive procedures in a desperate attempt to not look their age. Why?? Who says you need to look...

    Or Alcohol. And Maybe Steaks?

    However, if this is thought of in a sexual manner... Keep it legal.

    Young & Old

    Yesterday I had a very pleasant conversation with a woman here on ep.  Then I noticed that she was 21-25.  After we finished I got to thinking.  If I met this woman somewhere, it would be next to impossible to have an extended conversation without everyone thinking...

    Never Too Old to Laugh

    It's what's in your heart that matters, not how old you are.  I grew up with older parents and their older friends, so I have always been able to talk to people much older than myself.  I enjoy music from many generations.  My niece has always treated me as a...

    I Know Right...

    Everyone thinks young people are dumb or something, but some of us are more smarter than some old people. Some people don't even listen to us because we don't have nasty *** wrinkles like they do. Age doesn't matter with love either. Anyone can love each other. Love is love...

    More Wise With the Years.

    I have always enjoyed the company of people older then myself. I think I just like to listen, and having gone through more years in life.. Well it just gives them more to talk about. I don't think that age really matters so long as there are many things in common to build a...
