I'm turning 25 in less than 2 months. :sad: I think facing a quarter-life crisis. I'm in denial that I'm in my mid-20's. Aaargh! I used to think people in mid-20's are old, mature people with relationships and careers. :sigh:

What do you think? Please tell me life begins at 25.

Speak for yourself, hon. You weren't born in the 40's like some of us.

25 is where it all turns downhill. Just kidding ;)
It did for me anyway.... but for reasons other than age. But I'm hoping when I turn 30 in a few months remain at 29 in a few months, things will start perking up.

Just think someone will always be older than you, and you'll still be cuter than someone.

Well, I will hit 25 in about five months too. There is absolutely nothing to be depressed about it. The way I look at it is that I am 25 years closer to that beautiful release from this stupid life. :)

Sam I remember feeling that way at 25 (lol, only three years ago, hehe). But really, life is just fine afterwards.

It IS funny how younger people think of 20-somethings as people with careers who have everything figured out. But of course the reality is that a good number of us are not that settled.

25 did not bother me. Many of my friends are older. I think that keeps me young because when I think of old people, I think of my friends and well, they are old.

I'm going to be 28 next year. Part of me feels old. My sister, who is one year younger than me is going to be a mom early next year. My brother and his wife are also expecting. I look at the positives. I don't have any sign of crows feet; not a wrinkle on my face, I'm in better shape than a lot of people younger than myself and just the other day, I got carded for a lottery ticket and this other lady I was speaking with asked me what High School I go to. Then, there are other things that make me glad to be 27. First, someone the other day posted about how they are so concerned with their appearance and what people think of them, and generally, younger people have a real issue with self-confidence, self-image and the like. A great advantage to turning 25 is gaining the wisdom to not worry about the small things. Of course there are probably bigger fish to fry, but if you have set goals in life, at 25 surely one should be able to look back with happiness on completing them.

Actually, if you think of it in terms of sexuality (and I'm not trying to wax perverted on you- hear me out on this), your life is just beginning. You see, in general (as there are exceptions to every rule- life isn't that simple), women have a greater sexual capacity, and men have a greater sexual drive. Most men's sexual drive peaks (in very short, explosive waves) somewhere between ages 17-22, and most women's sexual capacity doesn't bloom (or come to fruition) until ages 35-45 (pre-menopausal) and sometimes even later. You are entering into a period of life where your sexual drive will still be relatively high, however, your capacity for longer-lasting, more fulfilling sexual expression and compasion will be realized. In short (hopefully not ;-D), you are becomming a man. Enjoy the best years of your life, and after that- keep up with your health and those little blue pills!

I remember being very young and reading magazines and thinking that twenty-something people were old... And now, I'm 26. Hmfff. :( ;) I think about my age sometimes: I'm not settled at all (at all!!) and blaaah... (This goes on and on and oooon... The "Soap Opera of Fiona"... :rolleyes: ;) ) But I would say that I feel better about myself at this age than I did when I was younger. I think I make a better twenty-something than teenager.

I'm not particularly mature anyway... (Just ask those who were unfortunate enough to hear me singing a McFly song at the top of my - HORRIBLE!! - voice earlier today... ;) )

I look forward to experiencing new things with the years. And I read about these pensioners who jump out of planes - I would like to be a pensioner like that... ;)

:wavey: Hope you feel better soon...

Joe: "When did he say it, Norma?"

Norma: "All right, it was quite a few years ago, but what does it matter? After this picture, we'll make another picture, and another!"

Joe: "Fair enough."

Once I got over 20, the years seem to just have blended - I don't really think about the number anymore. As long as the first digit stays the same I think I can cope.

For the record anyway:

25 was one of the best years of my life so far.

26 was even better.

I flipped out when I turned 20 that I considered getting botox just to hold on to my youth.

As long as the first number is still 2, I'm ok. But once that thing turns 3 (or the WORST THING that can happen is when it turns 4) I may need to buy myself a mansion to compensate.

26 freaked me out because it made me realize I was closer to 30 than 20.

When I hit 27...I got over it :D

You don't get older, you get better. That's a good philosophy to live by :)
