1. When the young complain to you about the old and the old complain to you about the young -- you're middle-aged. 2. Middle age is when the cheery physician stops asking, "How's the old girl?" and begins inquiring, "Well, how's the young lady?" 3. Most people don't think they're middle-aged until they're not.

I am not exactly sure how middle age is determined, my body feels like 80 or so and my mind is still quick enough for a 10 year old, so if you average that out it would be 45, so I'm afraid I am beyond middle age no matter how the cookie crumbles...lol

Thanks for your analysis. It seems that we can't pick any particular age as being middle age, as middle age depends on individuals. Some reach it fast, while some still feel it at 70. At 53, I have just reached my own middle age. What of you?
