    For me the only BD number I remember bothering me was 39, but that was 30 years ago.

    I like being 69!

    It was 30 for me. 40 didn't bother me so much and 45 is coming up this year and I couldn't care less. 50 might make me cry though!

    For @Tayykisses PLEASE watch this!

    From movie Lost in America, one of my favorite scenes!

    https://youtu.be/d7JNUH7P2Aw

    That was some good acting I kept waiting for a punch line but I guess the 35 dollars at the end was enough. Thought they were going to say that she was like 50k down or something heh

    She lost their "Nest Egg"... they had liquidated ALL their assets to travel across America, first stop was Vegas! Hilarity ensues. One of my favorite movies.

    30 for me as well. But there was also some *kitten* going on in my life at the time that made it worse.
    40 and 50 were meh.

    I'm 58, and enjoying every minute.

    In our family, the philosophy is: Find an age that you like and stay with it.

    This is in agreement with the infallible Oscar Wilde, who has a character say, in The Importance of Being Earnest:

    Lady Bracknell: ...Thirty-five is a very attractive age. London society is full of women of the very highest birth who have, of their own free choice, remained thirty-five for years. Lady Dumbleton is an instance in point. To my own knowledge she has been thirty-five ever since she arrived at the age of forty, which was many years ago now.

    Question....

    Has anyone had a birthday that just REALLY bothered them? Like, they didn't want to turn that age AT ALL? If so, what age was it??

    Because, I know it's young...but I turn 22 in a month and I am BEYOND upset about it. Like, I do NOT like the sound of it, or thought of it. Lol

    I think 25 was a transition year for me, though I cannot remember why. 40 was also weird, but 45 was a tough year overall for me.

    I'm kindof getting that feeling this year. I'll be 26 and I just keep thinking, "I'm on the downside of my 20's!" I'm closer to 30 now than 20 and I'm not at all sure how to feel about it lol

    I think every year after 15 bc I really wanted to be a pop star and still do but the older you get the less likely that is to happen. Perhaps I can make a virtual musical group like the Gorillaz, there's always that.

    It's weird what a mere number can make us feel. Go celebrate cause it's your special day!!! the numbers will always increase but that's all they are....numbers. It's what you make of it that counts. Don't let the number scare you just have fun

    36 for me. I think. It's been a while, lol.

    Guessing that 40 next year is going to be hard.

    My 30th birthday was hard. Nothing went right all day. Plans that were made ended up getting cancelled, people bailed, etc. I hated it.
