I am 28 yrs old just like you and I really feel younger than my age, although I look older but I feel very young. Even if I am the oldest in the office I still manage to get along with the young one's and I still manage to make jokes and laugh at them. In that way I feel that Ia m young because I still get along with the young officemates I have.

I am getting close to 50 and yet feel like I am still in my 20's, body and mind..One thing besides a good attitude is healthy living that can make you feel older or younger than your age..

Hi I'm 21, and sometimes I feel that I'm old too. I'm thinking that there are few more years , and I'll hit 30 and all is gone . I'll go to 40's road , and guess who's the neighbor? Correct , 50 years old ! And older than a 60 years is a 70 years grandma . Looks like a story , isn't it? every time I told that to older people , that on 21 I feel old , they started to laugh . and those people have over 50 . They told me that even at 40 , you still feel young such as 30 or 20 , if you want it . It depends to you , you don't have to live such as one of 50 does it , just because he is like that . You control your own life . And let me tell you . Every age has it's own magical moments . You remember how much you liked to play with toys when you were young ? Or how much you like the childhood games ? Now you don't like them as you did . You are big . You remember how much you liked on 16-24 years old period ~ to go to clubs,or do crazy things on beach in night...hang out with friends , get drunk , laugh and so on..the examples may vary , some you may still do them , but maybe on you 30 you start limit them . why? because you feel moving on would mean getting married , have some children , a better car/house ...but still you could still do other things too . It will come and age when the biggest happiness that could exist , is to see around the Christmas / Thanksgiving Day / whatever holiday 's table at home , your wife , children , grand children , and why not...grand grand children :D Remember , we never get old , only our body :)

How old do you feel you are? At 28 you should feel very good, if not, there are many things that can cause you not to feel well. If you have no major illness, you may not be getting enough rest, or eating right, you may be over weight or unfit due to inactivity. It's time to find our what is happening with your body and take control so that at my age you will feel as young as your can. I'm 69

Well you and only you are in charge of that. There are very few things we have control of in life, but unless your weight is caused by illness you can control it. The fact of facing the future as an over weight person has always been enough to make me keep mine down. It's never easy, it's so much easier just to ignore it and not look in the mirror or at the scale. Good Luck

I am already twenty-five years old. I feel that I look older than my age but with regard to maturity, it is so much younger. I am not that matured.

Heck no, I don't feel older. I don't feel my age at all. In my head I will probably always be 20-something...

Yes, I must admit that there are times when I feel older than my age. I'm only 22 years old, and there are times when I feel like I've aged a couple of years.

hi elmiko I can truthfully say I feel a lot younger than my age even with my greywhite hair telling the truth. I do not feel 83 at all,more like sixty three or fifty three instead. I like the idea that here in Gold Crest there are a lot of younger people too so I can feel more comfortable in a crowd of mixed ages.

Actually I almost forgot my real age because I don't think I am old enough. I am still have a child heart. I can play well with my son. We have lots of good time when we go to the park. I still like playing the toys and watching the cartoons. Perhaps it is better to call I am not mature yet:) I love China

Yap I do feel the same as you are, I feel very old than my age don't want to say anymore. But I feel old and getting a lot of sickness , my body breaks down so fast, got high blood which makes me feel i'm 70 years old.

it stinks doesn't it. i got high blood pressure as well but i think its just due to my size as i'm overweight. thats probably my biggest problem of feel crappy.

Hi Elmiko, Well I am late forties and still feel like I am an eighteen year old at times. I had loved a lot of life so I feel older and wiser than my age at times but still do silly things like blowing bibbles and being carefree. I ache some days so feel pysically older at those times but generally I am just me, age is just a number. Huggles Ellie :D

its hard for me to believe the phrase age is just a number.
