Then get a shock when an age thread comes up?
I just assume you are all old farts like me approaching 40 then when people discuss celebrating their 30th or having children at 20 something it makes me realise I am under such a false assumption.
I am also sometimes surprised with how "grown up" a lot of people on here are when you are 15 or so years younger than me. A couple of examples spring to mind but I won't list them!!

I know I'm older (37), although glad to know there's others of a similar age - I am quite surprised when I hear how young some of them are though and like you think they seem very grown up for their age.
Yes! Exactly this. Very occasionally someone pops up who you can tell is very young but otherwise it seems like everyone is just the same. I guess that's because we're all at the same stage of life in terms of mostly have children who are a similar age though? But my mummy friends IRL are quite a range of ages and, apart from some having much bigger houses etc which reminds me they've had longer to save than us, I never consider anyone to be a different age to me.

Should add I am 38, 39 in July

I am 30! But I do feel older most the time!

Yes. On BT, we all "feel" the same age to me. Maybe because we're all kind of going through Motherhood together.
I felt younger on WP, but then I was 19, and quite often my age was pointed out by other members.
I'm 27, but feel older. I guess that comes from having a child at 18. Saying I have a 9 year old Makes me feel old.

Yes I do, I do this IRL too - always group people together into the same age as me even when they're older, or younger - esp younger, I'm obviously labouring under a false illusion about myself! I'm nearly 33.

I assume you're all around my age (i'm 30 in july) but that's because we all have young children

I generally assume people are younger than me. But I do that in real life too.

I often feel quite old in here (I'm 39 in June) and the recent threads have really highlighted it to me.
