And yet there aren’t too many people from that demographic posting here. I guess it’s because they don’t talk, they just do it, whereas maybe younger people hold on to some hope of reaching out. Log in to Reply mulgrum 1/11/2019 - 11:16 pmTo be sure, 50 is arbitrary, especially considering you’re absolutely right that the the average age here seems to be 20ish (or maybe younger). I just think our life experiences, expectations, hopes, dreams, disappointments are different than young people. Being able to relate is such an important part of this site. A separate category wouldn’t mean that those outside the age group couldn’t contribute or benefit (nor would that be a good thing). I am convinced, however, that it would greatly increase the value of this site to our cohort to know that you’re connecting with people on the same arc.
