30 Signs You Are Getting Older...

30 Signs You Are Getting Older

We spent half of our lives dreading old age but when it’s finally here, we don’t even realize it and don’t even feel bad about it. Though we are not the same party person we used to be, our life is still fun, just a different kind of fun. But the question is, how do you officially know you are getting older? Is there a set age that tells when a person gets old? Many would say 40 years of age but I have seen over-40 somethings running in sweat pants with “JUICY” bedazzled across the back. Of course you can’t call them old. Seriously there is no set age for getting old. But if you want to know whether you are on the track to getting old, look out for these 30 signs you are getting older.

1- You feel good when you get carded

When you get carded, people probably think you are younger and your real age isn’t very obvious. That is something to be happy about but a sure sign you are getting older.

2- There are all baby pictures in your Facebook News Feed

Most of your friends are married by now and have their own kids. And so, instead of drunken party photos, your Facebook News Feed is full of baby pictures.

3- Or, your Facebook friends post marathon pictures

If your friends attend marathon events and participate in them instead of going to concerts and dance parties, it sure means you are getting older.

4- When you go to a concert and look for “SEATS”

All those years, you took your skin for granted and neglected using sunscreen. But now as old age is coming closer, your wrinkles are getting more obvious and so, you regularly use sunscreen to make up for those years of neglect.

In your teens, you would trade anything to stay with your friends and party all night. But now when you are getting older, you would rather pay more for a nice and clean hotel room than a crappy hostel shared with your friends.
