21 Signs You’re Getting Old

20 September 2018

Remember that song “Forever Young”? No, okay – well let me stop you right there because this article’s probably not going to be for you… actually, maybe stick around so you can revel in your youth.

But for those of you who do remember it, this has basically been the hymn of my life. Once I hit 20, I was forever 20 – ain’t nothing slowing me down. Except then one day I realised I actually didn’t really want to spend my Sundays with a hangover because after the club we’d been in had shut, I thought it was a good idea to find a dingy pub that was open until 5am. And I stayed until lights on. 🙄

Nope. I had changed (although, disclaimer – sometimes the allure of a sweaty vodka-fuelled night at a bar with pulsing music and pulsing biceps gets too much and the 5am curtain call doesn’t seem such a bad idea…)

If you’re still desperately clutching to your youth and not sure if it’s time to give up the game – we’ve rounded up 21 signs that will separate the oldies from the youngies…
