Obviously people are individuals, but in general, do you find youth or seniors to be more kind? I don't really see a difference, old people are probably more willing to talk on the whole but i dont think they're nicer, just have more time on their hands i guess. i think it's about the same. it seems all generations are basically the same, it boils down to the individual.

Define friendly. Just being a blabbermouth or looking to be friends with someone(what I would call friendly). I think older people are nicer, less likely to cause you trouble but less likely to be interested in becoming friends.

I don't think it has anything to do with age.

You could say that younger people haven't had a chance to get pissed off at the world and/or encounter lots of people to **** them off, so maybe they'd tend to be nicer (whereas older people have more life experiences, and possibly more reasons to be less nice).

On the other hand, older people have had longer to get over all of it, so may be generally happy... and therefore, kinder.

Yeah, I'll stick with my original answer. I don't think it has anything to do with age

I think older people are generally more friendly but there are those who are especially grouchy. But its hard to blame them when you dont know what theyve been through. Younger people are probably more self absorbed, older people tend to have the time to take things slow.

I, too, think it has nothing to do with age. Either a person is kind or s/he is not.

It doesn't have much to do with age some people are just friendlier than others

Doesn't matter. There are jerks and idiots of all ages, and ditto for awesome, warm, friendly people.
