Average age of members?

MMario's picture

For a number of reasons I got to thinking about ages today - and I've been trying to remember whether or not anyone has done the "How old are you?" bit here at MWK.

I know we've got a wide range of ages - from teenagers on up to ??? but just how old? And where do the bulk of the guys who join here fit>

For myself - I'm about as close to mid-50's as one can get.....six months to go until I hit a double nickel.

tho' maybe this would be better done as a poll as some people may not want to say...

43, but I tend to forget how

43, but I tend to forget how old I am. At times I have been known to ask my partner "How old am I?" Once he added two years and I didn't blink.
I never had Birthdays as a child so tend not to notice them now. When I was 18 I didn't remember till one week after the event. That sounds dopey I know, but it also saves a heap of money as my family don’t celebrate theirs either.
30 and 40 went by, with out any of the flap my friends all went through in the months before and after their birthdays. So I really believe age is a state of mind.

I turn 51 in July. The end of July. Age is just a number I keep telling myself. My body on the other hand keeps telling me I am not the Energizer Bunny and I will run down. But I keep on going even though I have taken a lickin.

38 here...will be 39 in December! I really started feeling old last night when I happened to see an episode rerun of High School Reunion on TVLand. It's Class of 1988 (my year) and I do NOT look as old as they do!! Although, most days my back makes me feel much, much older!!

Yeah, I will be 25 in May and I am not happy about it. Most of the women I want to date can't go to the bar with me. Though I don't go out that often, I would like to not have to go to Denny's or somewhere like that for a late snack.

I am 34 (35 in August) - I think. (seriously, figuring out how old I am makes me so confused) - I still look at people strange when they call me "sir" - I feel like a kid and still have no idea what I want to be when I "grow up"!

My twin turns 54 in July.

My twin turns 54 in July. (One friend, Bless her, always asks me if I'm having a birthday on the 14th of July, or if it is just my brother's B-day.) I, personally, only feel like I'm in my 30's to mid-40's. How I hate it when my body reminds me just how old it is. Thank goodness it isn't too often. Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
