Mid-30s when I bought my first home

I'm hoping it happens by the time I'm 90.

28.

J said...

Not sure what that means exactly, but I don't think I'm there yet and that's fine.

About 25, 26. Sometimes I still feel like a college student in a mock meeting when I'm at work.

Tricia13 said...

You stole my line-still waiting lol.

gfbcpa said...

I'm 60 and I'm still waiting. I only feel like an adult when I look in the mirror.

gadfly said...

54 this weekend. still waiting.

I moved several hours away from anyone I knew to purchase a coffee shop in a resort town in Idaho. 29 years old, that's when it all changed.
Omg that was scary.

Nummi said...

30 and still waiting. Seeing people older than that saying the same does make me feel better.

Conservaterian said...

My Dad died 19 years ago and last year my Mom had a rapid onset of dementia which led to her going into palliative care. The day my Mom died, was the day that I became an adult.

Vita said...

I've felt like a charlatan my entire "adult" life, like the calendar and my spirit have been in an endless power struggle.

Trapped said...

20 my dad died two years before

Vita said...

Conservaterian-- Very similar story, minus feeling like an adult. Im sorry for the loss of your mom.

AuntBee said...

I'll let you know.

Gen-z99 said...

I'm 20 but everyone tells me a look 12 and act like it.Its so frustrating to look at 20- something year olds and feel like a child,cause that's how they see me and treat.I'm so lost right now .

Sd Auntie said...

35. I'm a late bloomer. Much admiration to conservaterian for Taking care of sick parents .

Todd said...

Still waiting for that moment.

Village Guru said...

67 or 68.

When I had my son

Em and 'im said...

When I was 7 and I went to boarding school. It either makes you or breaks you.

Niemand said...

@Zebra Seasoning You posted the EXACT answer I was going to contribute! Lol!

Sagan said...

Will be 53 in August, but feel like I'm 29 - like there's something big coming juuust around the corner, very soon.

Conservaterian - I too am sorry for your loss. I'm an only, and I've already lost my dad (10 years ago). I will lose my shit when my mom goes. I joke and tell her I'm going first. She doesn't like my morbid humor.

Ann said...

At 30. My career provided a good life, got married, and we bought our first home. Doesn't get more real than that. Conservatarian I'm sorry for your loss.

HouellebecqGurl said...

19. Like a normal person, lol.
Today everyone has Peter Pan Syndrome & act like a bunch of kidults at 35. It's embarrassing to watch.

Matt said...

Wait. Is that a thing?

I'm 40. I'm an adult mostly but still know how to have a good time if we can find a babysitter. We went out drinking this past weekend for first time in a year. I had a good time. Everyone was cool...good music. Lots of pretty college girls. Yes..we got carded once or twice...out of 7 bars we went to. Eat healthy, work out...get sleep. Being an adult doesn't change much..but getting old does.

Krab said...

When I was giving my first child a bath in the tub. I realized that if anything bad happened to the baby, it was my own fault and that I was the one in charge, not my mother.

Mahogany1 said...

40 when I adopted my son

Brayson87 said...

I feel like it's a staircase process, not an elevator, you don't just reach adulthood. The more steps you take, the more adult you feel. Every few years I look back and think, no I wasn't really an adult then, knowing full well that in a few years I'll look back at the current moment and think the same thing.

Freebird said...

It comes & goes. I will always have the heart and the spirit of a child. Which isn’t always a good thing. My mom committed suicide when I was 19. I had to be my own “mom” after that, so maybe that’s when I first got the inklings of adulthood.

Guest777 said...

I feel like I have been an adult too long...since I was 16 on my own, damn near 50

Do Tell said...

I'll let you know when I get there.

HeatherBee said...

Freebird! I’m so glad to see you’re back and hope you’re doing well.😀

OKay said...

Something changed for me at 26 or so. I stopped feeling like "the adults" were a separate entity.

HkyMom said...

48 and still look around for an adultier adult than me.

Rob Horine said...

On my 31st birthday. When my dad told me he had ALS.

Vita said...

Yes, Freebird, great to see you back, you've been missed!

HouellebecqGurl--"kidult" LOL, never heard that one! (Also, might be guilty)

One silly time this adult thing DID strike me was the first time of being called "Ma'am" instead of "Miss," that sucked.

Aquagirl said...

17. My dad was diagnosed with cancer and died six months later. After that, I packed my stuff and moved to NY to go to college.

BTW, feeling as if you’re an adult and feeling as if you are your chronological age are two entirely different things. Trust me.

Aquagirl said...

And Hiiiii to Freebird! Have been wondering how you’ve been. Hope you’re settled.

Well maybe if you stop acting like a racist incel people would treat you like an adult. Stop throwing tantrums and move out of Mom's basement
