Just curious, I have a hunch that a lot of the posters on the forum may be very young, 20 something? Newlyweds? Are there folks out there 30 something? 40 something? ...with younger kids like myself? High school or college age? I enjoy everyone's posts and I'm already getting to know names and personalities of each, but I do find myself wondering as I'm reading....thought it would be kind of interesting to know, what age group people from the triangle or ones thinking of relocating, like myself, are from. I hope I'm not offending anyone by asking, within a decade would be fine. I have an 8 and 10 year old, 2 college-age and I'm feeling very outnumbered Jeannie

I just turned 30 and moved here last year from Northern VA with my wife who is 26. So I guess I'm a little younger than most. We don't have any kids yet, but plan on Maybe trying next year when I'm finishing up with school. I'm 1 of 11 kids myself, but we only plan on having 2 max...I really don't know how my parents did it? I find this board is a good way to learn new stuff about this area and get ideas for many different kids of things to do and places to go.

I basically just read and post at work when I get bored ("hey boss...what? No I'm not on the internet").

I'm 39, single, moved here with dog - the forum has been a great resource - I don't think I should be on here at work but I will stay late.

maybe.

I'm 32 and hubby is 35 and we're from NY and living in Fuquay. We used to be DINKs (double income, no kids) but I left work to run my own business so now we are OINKs.

I am 29 and have a 1-year-old.

You could make this a poll so that people wouldn't have to post their ages in the thread if they don't want to. I'm not sure exactly how, but I think you can still do that.

Yep, I'm squarely middle aged with a young child. I was actually under the impression that most posters here were on the older (vs 20's) side. Interesting.

Since I'm a programmer and spend most of my time waiting for long-running jobs to end, I feel my work internet surfing is entirely justified LOL

What is middle aged these days? I'm wondering if I hit it yet.
