How old do you feel?

    Some people look younger than their age and also feel younger than their age. And some people look and act older than their age. Although I'm 43, I feel like 25. I do the same things and think the same way as I did then, but with a bit more experience which helps me not to repeat certain errors of life. I always hang out with much younger than me.

    Do you act like a person your age?

    How old do you feel inside?

    You're as old as the woman you feel, and so that makes me 26!

    Actually sometimes I feel more like 96, especially first thing in the morning!

    I'm 27, look like I'm 18, feel like I'm 75, think like I'm 15.

    That's one thing I never understood, why people have a hard time getting up in the morning. OK, maybe It's my 8 to 9 hours of sleep daily, but I get up in 2 seconds and feel great. BUT, if I sleep only 5 or 6 hours, then .....

    Happy 26 Matty!

    JH, I think you've got it there. I'm always staying up too late, and I think lack of sleep ages you somewhat so I'd better keep that in check!

    Anyway, I've recently started a regime of drinking 2 litres of water a day, and I must say that's made me feel much healthier - it's true what they say. It does have an annoying side effect though....

    103 sounds like a bad fever...

    I will be 51 in a few weeks. Most of the time I feel 35 and most people think I am late 30s (which still surprises me.

    When I was working at the shelters I would always be surprised booking in people who were my age. They always looked so much older I thought. Then I thought maybe it was just my perception - like we never think we look as old as we do, but in casual chats with people they would always be surprised at how young I look.

    I think it is a matter of good genes, not sun-bathing and not smoking (or so they tell me) cuz I certainly don't do anything special

    I feel much older first thing in the morning. I have arthritis in my feet, ankles and hands. It takes my body a while to loosen up in the morning.

    I think I know why. Spiceland is 5 hours difference from England time, that's why.
