You start getting people message you on dating sites asking if you'd date a younger man/woman. I am now falling into the older woman category. Good Lord.

You hear kids screaming (or perhaps to young ears merely playing in a semi high tone) at checkout and silently shake your head, wishing you could shake some silence into them. (I actually like kids- the little migraine triggering cuties that they are).

When it's sunny and one set of neighbors start playing 60's music while the other end plays house and you just sit there spitting out swear words that you can't enjoy a bit of peace and quiet for a change. 10 years ago, it was these bastards that were knocking to tell me to turn my music down. How things change.

When you start actually listening to the news and not just reading the celeb gossip column. Who is this Kim Jong-Un fellow? I think i'd like a little nodding one for my car like one of those nodding bull dogs. I'm joking. I don't have a car.

Also when you start wearing a hat to go outside because it's a bit nippy out there and you don't wanna get a chill. Yup, i'm definitely cougar material.

Adverts use music you grew up with...which used to be 'cool', for products you can't afford/have no interest in purchasing, like family cars.

… you see a circle pit starting at a festival and decide it's not a great idea to join in

*disclaimer: this happened to me yesterday, but my decision was based more on the heel injury I've had for the past week than thinking I was too old to mosh - I was struggling to stand at the time (it was my third festival of the weekend).

When you see your tummy and the behind extending - and other areas distending - in ways you do not like. the grey hair add on each week is really flattering too...

When someone writes underneath a Youtube video something along the lines of:

"I was 4 years old when Michael Jackson died and I'd never heard of him..."

I'd guess seeing as the comment was underneath an actual Michael Jackson music video I'd say yes.

I always think it looks nice and relaxing, yet ironically in the middle of London.

When you see a themed club night and think "oooh grunge music, I'd quite like to go to that" and then see that it starts at 10:30pm. I go to bed at 10:30pm!

Default Re: You know you're getting old when..

^ I don't know why but it reminded me of one place I went to a few times

It was very much music up my street (metal/rock etc) I went during uni. Infact barring pubs it was the only sort of nightclub you could ever get me in as I all the others played music I'd rather shoot myself than listen to but

So I frequented it when I was..19-23ish, all felt fairly normal! nothing out the ordinary, fitting in fine.

Then I went back once when I was 26/27 for whatever reason. I felt like a dirty old man..looking at all these "women" (girls?!) I doubt I was far off being old enough to be their dad! or at least It felt that way (I'm aware I Would have had to father them at the age of about 8 but still)

That was my nightclub ..life..over 26 and past it.

The last time I went to a nightclub was in ethiopia 10 yrs ago. There a gorgeous women on her own looking really bored. Spent all night trying to get the courage to ask for a dance and then one of my companions beat me to it.

Turns out she was a prostitute. In fact turns out 90 % of the women were. Never felt like going to a nightclub again!

When you remember most of the DJs on Radio 2 being on Radio 1. All it needs is Jeremy Vine and Vanessa Feltz to get replaced with people like Chris Moyles and Bruno Brookes and it's complete!

I knew I was getting old when I saw the Breeders in concert. The only image of them I had was from the cannoball video. So when some really fat obviouly 50 yr old woman and her equally old sister came out On stage I was like **** am that old?

Great performance though, just a shock to see old they were and by implication how old I am.

Also you know youre getting old when you no longer want to queue all day to get to the front of the stalls.

And you know youre past it when you dont want to go to a concert because its too noisey!
