I Rarely Find Kindreds In People of My Own Age Group

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 73 People

    Age Is But a Number

    I believe I was born with an old soul. Mature beyond my "age", I sought out people who were older and was fascinated with their stories and experiences about life. I loved hearing about the "good ol' days", and the history of world events that...

    I Don't Fit My Age Group

      I don't remember when I started to lose the edge with my age group but it seemed to happen right away. I find myself able to communicate and make friends with adults and older people a lot faster than I can with anyone of my age group.   *Shrugs* ...

    I Feel They Are Not On My Level.

    I cannot hold a decent conversation with most people my age.  It's sad, but the maturity is not there.  It's like all they want to do is party.  I want to live a stable, more calm lifestyle.  I am so happy that I finally found my soulmate, who agrees with me.

    True

    The people I have the most in common with are either in their early 20's or they are elderly. (I'm talking 75 or older.) I don't know particularly why that is. lol

    My Age Group Seems to Established In Their Place.

    Outsiders and alternatives are shunned - older folks seem to find hunor in it and younger ones just wonder.  But I presume it's just the way it is and will be for me and I just accept this as it is.

    Just Very Little to Talk About...

    I am a snob, I admit it. I have lived many lives, both within this one and many years ago. People find me "elitist" in intellect at first. If you are within the 25-35 age span and are my friend, I find you wise and honorable. Younger and older people rarely annoy me...

    The Content Loner

    It isn't necessarily just that I can not make friends in my age group, I have and often are surrounded by such people. Though I'd be dishonest to say their company satisfied me. We're in our second year of college and parties still play out like they would in high school, even...

    The Two Extremes!

    I rarely make friends or chat with people who are my age... they are either way older or way younger! It's weird. :-o It's not that I wouldn't like to chat and hang around people my age, but they just don't like me for some odd reason. The younger ones think that I am cool...

    Age is definitely not perfectly correlated with maturity, but I do find that few people under age 25 can hold a conversation and keep it interesting.
