What a weird question isn't it?! Heehee! Anyways, I just want to let you know that I can read people's minds. In fact, I'm reading yours right now and I know your answer for this question... It's "GET OLD" Yipee! I'm right! LOL! My answer to my own discussion is also to get old. I want to enjoy life as much as I can. I want to go to places I dream of going to when I was a kid, like the place called Paris, Hawaii, and if possible, I want to go to Antarctica and see the Penguins. There's so much I want to do with my life before I die so I definitely don't want to die in a young age. Besides... I want to meet my dream girl first and love her for the rest of my life. I want to grow old with her! :) - Ron Reyes www.ronreyes.co.nr

When I face a difficult probelm and in a bad situation, I also want to go back to be the one in mon's womb. That's the nature of human being to escape from the difficulty. But eventually I still have to face the fact and go through it. Getting old is also a wonderful thing as we get to know more and more about the world, and we can save more money to the deposite account which make the dream possible to go around the world to enjoy the nature God gave.

Anyway for me it depends though as much as i want to grow old see my children and my grandchildren someday but if i'll be sick of just bed ridden i dont want to be a burden to my relatives i'd rather die than annoying them my attention coz my quest in life is to see my family happy and enjoying their lives!

I certainly don't want to die young but I don't want to grow really old that i would be useless and my family will have to take care of me. i am still enjoying my life so much that having to cut it short is a thought that scares me. i hope that I can have a chance to travel, and have a family too, among other things.

Growing old and useless? Now that's an unpleasant thought. My father is 83 and I am his caregiver. I take care of him daily in his ailing health. But I don't and never will look at him or any senior as "useless". I love my father and that's why he's with me letting me take care of him. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Hi friend, Let ur dream comes true, my dear. But i would prefer "Die young". Ya I want to die in my young age, because in the young age only I can enjoy my life without any worries. I have found my dream boy. But we cant marry due to our family situation. Inspite of this, we are loving each other and speaking about the dreams. Ofcourse we can marry but we dont want to leave our parents. So we have left the end to God. Ya God alone should deserve whether we get married or not. This is the reason for me to die in the young age.

I don't mind getting old, there is different fun when we are in different ages. When we were young, we enjoy our energy and youth, when we were in middle age, we finnally got a family, to have a taste that to have own family, when we were old, we begun to enjoy ourselves and had ease life after years' hard working, also to see the grandson growing up. Different ages, different fun.

I know I'll be extremely annoyed if I don't live to be at least a hundred. These days as long as we look after ourselves and are lucky enough not to get a fatal disease, we should all easily reach 100

100 years of age is a bit impossible to reach but it's really a great achievement to those who finally reached that kind of age. :)

Well.... I would prefer to live all the phases of life... I dont know why people feel the being old is a shame... I would love to be an elderly person... This is the only phase in life after childhood when we forget all the worries and live life with any problem....

Maybe I have seen too many elderly people suffer after working in nursing homes and care homes for the elderly, but I don't want to live to the point where I am totally incapable of taking care of myself. I don't want to have to take a bunch of medicines every day just to keep me alive, or be so dependent on others that I have no dignity left. If I am like my grandmother, who is now 86 and still lives on her own, quite independently I might add, then I wouldn't mind, but I fear ending up like so many others.

Well, Mr. Reyes, I think that in order for you to meet your dream girl, you need to get over your being a loner fisrt. (my opinion) My husband was a loner and I had the hardest time getting to him. Anyway, yes....I want to live to be as old as my Lord Jesus allows me to! I would like to meet my great grandchildren and be around for them. I want to be the grandma with the big kitchen that everyone runs to on friday nights for dinner and sunday afternoon for lunch. I want to be there when my grandaughter tells me her daughter is getting married. I think i might be asking for too much..as long as I have health. Whether is is for 5 more minutes for 80 more years!

If your husband is a loner and he found you so why can't I? Loner can also find their dream girl. Bill Gates is an example for this. Bill Gates was a nerd, a computer geek, who often spends his time alone. In short, he's a loner! But still, he found his wife Melinda. Loners knows how to love! :)

I'm not saying you won't find love, Just that it'll be easier if you are out more. I agree loners are lovers too!

Get old! Like what you've said, I want to enjoy life as much as I can. But We really don't know what will happen on the next few hours. Someone holds your life, and if He wants you stop breathing, His will be done! You got my point, right?.

True! Our life is just borrowed from Him. He can take it back in any time, in any place, whenever He wants to! Nice response! :)

I don't want to be so old when I die that I am not able to move around anymore or things like that, but I don't want to die young either. I have three children that I at least want to see graduate from school, and I would love to have some grandchildren to spoil after that, so I am not looking at checking out for quite a while. :)

Living to a ripe old age would be great if the body and the money were able to hold out too. I see no point in living to 80-100 if I would not be able to communicate and be active. The last thing I would want is to be a useless body stuck in a home with someone having to do everything for me. Life is wasted on the young.

Old, but only if I am reasonably healthy. I have many relatives who have made it to 89 years of age plus. I have even met a few folks over the age of 100.

You know for me it honestly really depends on my health. If I'm able to stay healthy in body and mind then of course I'd like to live to be very old but if I knew that I was going to be frail and sickly then I'd rather go younger, just so long as I'm able to live long enough to see my kids grow up, get married etc.
