What age is considered old these days?

So is 50 the new 40? Is 40 the new 30? At what age to you officially classify someone as old?

I'm 41 and far from old, outside of a few more ailments than I used to have.

When I was 30 50 was old. Now that I'm 50 70 is the benchmark.

To me, the barometer seems to be about 10 years older than my current age.

Do you consider 50 to be old?

I would say once you hit 45 you're old. 44 and below is not that old. 45 and up is.

I don't know what to consider old. I can say that 50 is when I started feeling older and every year I ache more.

For you older people, what can I look forward to for when I get old? What are some good things about getting old?
