Men Feel Old At 58, Women Feel Old At . . . 29
People always tend to make a big deal over turning 30, but really, it’s not that bad. And it certainly doesn’t mean that your life is over.
As long as you’re a man, that is. If you’re a woman, then, yeah, you’re done.
According to a new study, the average man doesn’t start feeling OLD until he hits age 58. The average woman starts feeling old at . . . age 29.
That means it literally takes TWICE as long for men to feel old.
The most common thing that made women start to feel old was finding gray hairs or SAGGING body parts. The most common thing that made men start to feel old was when they couldn’t perform in bed.
The second-most common thing that made men start to feel old? When they start thinking that music is being played too loud in bars.
Cary Cooper is a psychology professor at Lancaster University in England. He says, quote, “Magazines are filled with young, attractive women. Women start to perceive themselves as old when they no longer feel . . . trendy or fashionable.
“Men, on the other hand, don’t have to be good looking, it doesn’t concern them. At 30, women have matured, they’re expected to think about getting married and starting a family.
“The majority of men are much more career oriented . . . they don’t feel old until they’ve reached retirement age.”
