I've heard a lot of different people say this lately. Thirties are the new twenties, twenties are the new teens. Yesterday I heard on the radio that while the typical age to experience your mid-life crisis was always fourty, nowadays most people have it at sixty. And a lot of people even go through quarter-life crises in their early to mid twenties. Also, most people don't get married and have children now until they're at least thirty.

As a twenty year old, this means I'll be part of the first generation to experience their teens twice. Hurrah? Or nah?

Do you think that your 30s are the new 20s?

Does 20 have "teen" spelled out in the number anywhere? No.

No, people who say this are stupid. They're just trying to A) justify their immature behavior and/or lack of responsibility OR B) trying to make themselves feel younger.

I wouldn't say there is that much of a difference but going by what I hear of my parents generations and others back then it definitely seems like there is some difference. Like 25 is the new 20

It's exactly what someone in their 30s would say.

Old people trying to look like young people are gross.

I find it weird when people say things like "yeah man she's actually pretty hot" when talking about these old gross wrinkled women. No they don't, they look awful. Stop encouraging them.

edit: I didn't read the OP and think I missed the point of the thread.

The fact you're all so surprised is reassuring proof of my continued immaturity.

People who say that sound like idiots.

But yes, i have heard the thing about people having their midlife crisis at about 60, not entirely sure what the cause of it is. Maybe it's because badass old dudes like Liam Neeson and Bruce Willis are still going strong into their 50s and 60s.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

My Mom says this a lot and shes 52. It's because she's black and still looks 35ish. Black people age better.



We want pics.
Is she hot?
#36
im thirty, and i don't have kids, am not married, and still rock out so i sound 20 but am 30. And with the lengthening of the school system by everyone needed in a college degree, and needing longer to get settled, along with longer life expectancy it would make sence that life style platueas are shifting at the later years in life.

I think the posts in this thread pretty much prove Sam's point...

This is terrible advice. Even worse than the useless dry, sarcastic comment I made.

Young people are less likely to "settle down" these days, or wait longer to do it. Guys in their 20s spend their afternoons glued to Call of Duty multiplayer, same as 15 year olds. People just out of college are finding it more difficult to start their desired career and instead find themselves working the same types of jobs they did while in school. It's hard to feel like a responsible adult in those circumstances.

Marriage is a catalyst for responsibility. Usually once someone's married they start wanting a family, and a family requires stability. Well, for most people marriage is postponed now because it seems like a purposeless exercise. A near 50% divorce rate doesn't breed confidence in matrimony. Men see it as a gamble in which if they lose they lose half of their personal wealth, and women being recently "empowered" want to explore their sexuality more while they're still young. So people generally don't start to look for a long term mate until later.
