Subject: What was your favorite age?

Written By: Martin_ on 07/19/13 at 1:21 pm

What was your favorite age to be and why? I really liked ages 4-6 (early 90's) and 11-15 (late 90's/early 00's). I didn't like high school and college, so 16-18 sucked. University also sucked, so 19-23 sucked, too I'm afraid. Am I the only one that feels that way?

My favourite age was 10-12 ('04-'06), 8 was also a good age (2002), 9 was tough for personal reasons. 16 and 17 were my favourite ages of being a teen (2010 and 2011).

Anywhere from age 5 to about 12.

My mid 20s were OK too.

30-45.

Did a lot of healing and growing. I went back to school, had my own apartment for the first time in my life and was in totally control of my life (as opposed to letting someone else control it).  I met Carlos, moved in with him, & married him.

You really love your 30s eh?

I'm only 24, but I really like the era I am in now, although I think it'll get even better by the time I'm 25. So maybe age 25 to 30.

And age 6 to 10!

I'm guessing my 30s will be 'my' golden age.

Age 5-13.  I hung out with my cousins a lot.  We had so many memorable times.

Yeah, and the first part of my 40s weren't bad either. Like I said, it was in my 30s where I finally took control of my own life. By doing so made me much happier than I was before.

11-15 (late 90's/early 00's)



My favourite age was 10-12 ('04-'06)


Pretty much a combination of this for me. I'd say about 10-15/16 is probably my favorite span of years in my life up to this point. That would cover 1997 through about 2002 or so, which is roughly the span of the so-called "Y2K era" of pop culture. The funny thing is that, around the time I turned 18, I went through a period where I started listening to older music and really rebelled against, and grew to hate, the cheesy, overblown culture of that era. Now that I'm getting a little older, and that period is getting further and further away, I've really started enjoying looking back on all the fun memories I have of that time.

I think the reason why so many people wind up being nostalgic for that particular period in their life (about ages 11-16 or so) is because it's when you experience so many of your most important firsts like your first kiss, first date, first car, etc. It's also when you begin to leave your parent's shadow and start experimenting with your own musical tastes, fashion styles and things like that.

Top spot would go to age 5-12 at the moment (mid 90's to early 00's). Good times.  8)

Any age from 2 to 17. Also, I loved my mid to late 20s. I will be 33 in another month or so and I'm loving it so much!

7-10 (except for a few months when I was 9 because I was a new girl at school)--I was still young enough to not have any responsibilities yet old enough to be aware of my surroundings. Older people thought I was adorable.

13---When I really transitioned and developed serious crushes, was glued to music videos, belonged to a "clique", started babysitting on a regular basis...

19---Had my first serious boyfriend, was at the peak with my looks, and went on my first overseas trip....

25-27---Other than being in a horrible relationship followed by a horrible breakup, I had a good group of supportive friends. I was young enough to still have some of my looks and was still curious about life.

8-9 - Childhood years. I was a naughty troublemaker, and I love it! Ah... what a kid I was.

14 - start of adolescence and formation of a self-concept

18 - adulthood and finally braving the world

But, my favourite is probably 14.

4-10 (1990-1996 - with a peak around 1995 I think)

and 14-ca. 18 (2000-2004 - peak 2002/3, being 16/17)

But I don't want to have my childhood and youth in this decade.

Birth-age 12. 76-88.  :) I don't know?  I did most of my growing up in the 80s and early 90s so it was my favourite time.  :)
