I relate to the people that are over 30 as they seem like they have been out and about and know what life is.Where as the people 25 or younger do not seem to know the value of responsability neither do they hold a very good conversation.

I find it is easy to get along with those the same age or younger because it keeps one young. That is why I find it easy to keep young. And if you are like me, and either married late or had children later then others, you cannot relate as much to those of your same age who are not great grandmothers and not just starting to be grandmothers. They have gone through what you have just started. Besides I do not feel like i am over the hill. Anyway thanks for the best response.

I find that with me being 38 it is hard to talk about things with people about 25 or younger as alot of the things like running costs of a house or having children do not apply to alot of them as they do not run a home or have children,where as things like that people above 30 have experience with those things so they can hold a discussion.

Most of my friends are Dutch Canadians and many of them marry when they are just out of high school or college so when they are twenty-five a lot of them already have children. Now me being part English and told that we cannot marry until we prove our success that does not happen until often our mid twenties or early thirties, so had we not moved to this area of Winnipeg, I would have been in the same situation as you were.

Some people do get married young and there are alot that are mature for their age,but there are alot of people that are immature for their age as well and do not have a clue about somethings in life.

The age group of people with which it seems that I relate to the best is the group of people that are between the age of 25 and 40 though there are some exceptions to this as well. The reason that I said this is the appropriate age group for me to get along with is the fact that this is the age group that most mothers of children that are similar in age to my children fall into. Since I've been a mother I find that most of my friends are in the same boat as I am and they are the people with whom it is the easiest for me to talk to.

There is no problem for me to relate to any age group. I can always have a conversation with them. But I usually deal with late teenagers more as I am a teacher. My students can always have a good conversation with me though I am middle-aged...

I have teenage daughters and i find that they have alot different out look in life when it comes to going to work as well as they tend to not have a clue about how much things cost and a healthier life style.

I relate to the elderly people (I am 34) because they are so knowledgeable and they have a lot of information they can share with other people. They hold a great conversations. I know when I went to college late in life (I was 28 when I attended) and most of my classmates were younger and a lot less mature. I cared about my schooling and most of classmates cared about drinking and skipping classes. I would have made more friends if they were mature.

Hello Jugs I do relate to the people that are my age (55) and older. I don't know many young people that I can relate too. I love to hear the older people tell of the good days when life was so much simpler. I have found a few young people in my life time that have a good head on their shoulders and know what they want in life and where they want to be when they get older. But that is few and far between.

I think it is all about how mature a person is as they do seem to have different out looks to life as well as to the future.

I think your right. It depends on how mature people are for me to hang out with. I have met people that is my age and older that was just plain silly and I couldn't hang out with that.

I tend to relate to people that are alot older than me. They seem to care and listen more and they are alot more mature also. I understand them and they seem to understand me also.

I think that you are right about the older they are the more mature they are and therefore it is alot easier to hold a conversation with them as well as they are easier to get along with.

Although I am only 27 years old (almost 28) I tend to relate better to people over the age of 50. I always have related to adults better than people my own age, even now that I am an adult. I seem to relate better to people about 20 years older than I am. I married a man 35 years older than I am, and we are great together.

That is great i also tend to be able to relax with older people than myself as i find that they are easy going as well as that they can hold a proper conversation.If they are younger than i am they are into pop groups that i have never even heard of.

For me I tend to be able to relate to amy age, yet having a proper conversation and relating to topics I like as well as they do it is normally people either the sam age as me ot a bit older...some of my daughters friends are in their 20's and I manage to relate to them so guess it is either age thst is ok with me..but definitley not anyone under 25..they are too young and I would rather more like to tell them off or where to go....lol LoLo

I'm like the other person i relate to people of all ages, but i especially get along with kids. The kids i talk to love to talk and we have much in common, i don't like to talk about serious stuff that much and that's why i get along so well with kids because they like to talk about exciting things like sports. But 95 percent of my closes friends are over 30, and i spend more of my time with them actually.

I have 6 children so i do get on alright with children,but it is when you are trying to have a conversation with people some seem like they do not have a clue how to have a conversation or how to hold a conversation and then there are the other younger ones they just do not know what to say,lol.

I can get along with any age group as far as I feel the person is matured, intelligent and humble. I like to get along with kids too. i spend time in motivating them or playing with them. But usually why people like to mingle with same age group is they have similar needs and desires and so it is fine to share our feelings with them

It is a thing about are they mature as well as alot of people make things into jokes rather than a conversation.Then if you are out you see alot of young people that need to grow up as well what with their attitude as well as their behaviour.

There are always exceptions - even the odd teenager might surprise me sometimes! - but other than that I agree, that the over thirties are people I relate to better. I am starting to wonder though if it is an _age_ thing or a generational thing. People under twenty five seem very self absorbed but they have been raised to be so in an increasingly consumerist and "individualist" society. Often they have very poor social skills because they haven't been given the chance to develop them. I wonder if age will change them or we will get an increasingly older generation of "teenagers"?

You are right there are some people that act alot older for their age as well as there are alot of older people that are very imature as well.The people that are my age normally have done the same kinds of things as me in life as well as the same or simular experiences.

I tend to look more at the mental age than at the body age, as in many cases seems to differ. My mind is younger than my body, you can call it being a little childish, so I tend to hang out with people younger than me. But I don't think I'd be able to hang out with teenagers as it's completely impossible to hold a good conversation with them.

I like that question! I'm 51 and I seem to really relate to people who are a bit younger than me. I could relate to people my age and older, but, the problem is that people my age and older are really OLD if you know what I mean. I've always had a young mind and that keeps me young and so many people my age are stiff in their thinking. Purrs, CATWOMAN=^..^= & Mija

I relate to the people about 5 years older or younger than me. Since we may have something in common, such as the interests or hobbies. My little brother is 8 years younger than me, our concepts are quite different for the generation gap.

I think you are right as alot of people look on life alot different with the difference in an age gap.I think that people my age could relate to the programs i used to watch as well as things that have changed over the years.

I like the younger crowd, teens and twenty year old's. I used to work with the youth so I have a soft spot for them since its getting harder and harder to grow up in this world. I've met some people my age who are fed up with life (I'm 41) so I really can't relate to them. Over 30 does seem like a good age, they've been around but don't act like kids.

I have to disagree with you there. My children are under the age of 25, as are most of their friends. They all seem to hang out in our livingroom and kitchen...the guys with their heads stuck permanently in my refrigerator! We have had some awesome discussions on Biblical things, money, politics, marriage and friendship. I guess some of that could be explained because my husband was a youth pastor for 17 years before God called him to be Senior Pastor. We are used to working with their age, and have learned over the years how to relate.

I have teenage daughters they are sort of mature for their age,but alot of their friends that are 17 and above act very childish as well as they are very loud just so that they can be heard.

I do relate to person slightly older to me by 5 years or more as they are more mature in their disposition and thinking. They behave well and know the good fun from the bad eggs. I also like people who are sensitive to the needs of their peers and very kind to make good advices. I hate those liars, insecure and those who like to be popular using other people for their own benefits.
@jugsjugs (13038)

I like people who are mature enough to be able to have a conversation with as well as people that you can have a laugh with as that way what you see is also a person with the same kind of attitude as well.
