But,I only have saw this type of thinking on CD,in the relationship forum.

Yes, but it is different on real dating sites and in the real world. I wouldn't call City-data's relationship forum representative of anything real. I've noticed the few people who actually post on there are just world class a-holes.

We are still largely living in the 19th century as a society and we really need to start working on some serious progress.
Anyone who is convinced age 30 is "old," is seriously mentally ill and should be avoided at all costs. Other than that warning it is a topic with zero merit.

She is super active, and regularly goes ballroom dancing to the theater and travelling all over the place. She even got remarried in her late 50s/early 60s. No need to slow down now. For her 70th she plans to go to Europe.

I want to be like her in my 60s!
She sounds fantastic! When I grow up I want to be like her too!

Actually it is. More and more people are putting off marriage and having kids these days. Some people don't even want to have kids. The baby boom generation was 60 years ago, this is 2012.

So someone who gets married and starts a family in their 20s is out-dated? Hypocrite.

A lot of people don't get married or start families in their 20s either, so I guess the same rule applies.

What rule? There are no rules dictating what age you're "supposed" to get married.

This guy is whining about feeling bound because of how other people view him, and then turns around and criticizes others because they don't make the same life choices he does. He's doing the same thing he's been endlessly complaining about in two different threads.

And I still want to know, so the fudge WHAT if someone thinks 30 is old or if everyone in the entire world thinks 30 is old? How does this change anything for you whatsoever?

Doesn't change a thing for this very active 50 year old woman! I couldn't care less if some punk somewhere thinks I'm old. I only hope they feel as great as I do when they are my age!

Heck, if they're sitting around playing video games for hours on end, and drinking and partying to excess every weekend, then I probably feel better than them most days.
