You suddenly realize you are losing hair. Your remaining hair is turning gray and your skin is beginning to wrinkle. You think back and your young years have gone by. Scared?If you had to name the one thing that most frightens you about growing old, what would it be? Well I found a cool new site that has a bunch of cool questions that can make for good discussions so I may start posting them here. P.S. Remember I comment and rate ALL responses + (positive). So please return the favor:-) Thank you!

i am kind of scared. i do not have any boyfriends in my life yet. so i lack the options. i am afraid that when i get old no one will grow old with me and no one will take care of me.

I can't understand why people cannot accept that growing old is as much a part of the live. however, I think I have accept that I will grown old and die but it is really scared when you think about it. a few weeks ago I got a terrible hurt in my hips and I thought how terrible would be grown old a get a lot of illness. but I know get growing old is inevitable. I have heard is is not a negative experience If I would choose I would like to die young. but who know how much and what kind of live I will have along my way.

Definitely the wrinkles! Ewww some old people are so wrinkly you just want to get the iron out to smooth them over! So many stars pay thousands of dollars for face lifts and plastic surgery to stop the wrinkles and the ageing effect! I guess that's why they say beauty is only skin deep LOL!

I am a 62 years old man. My hair turned gray but my skin is still shining. I never got frighten that I am growing old. I knew, one day, I had to be old. My father become old and I become old and my future generation will also go old when they attain the age. I do not carry freightened feeling of my old age because it is a known fact that everybody has to die one day.

That is a good positive way of thinking about life navtech :-D And the best part is that in this modern day 62 isn't really very old! Heck in a decade everyone will be living until their 100s thanks to our modern medical technology :-D The trick is to eat healthy and live a healthy life-style ;-) Thank you for your response :-) Rated +.
