You'll be surprised by how a younger person can seem old and an older person can seem young. Ignore age and just get to know people.
Excellent advice.

I have no clue how I got to be this age. I am 29 in my thinking, about 12 in my humor and I have body parts that think the rest of me is 200.
I have to be myself, everyone else is taken.

I moved here at age 61 and that was to young. This place is fine if your 65-70 years old but these people are old and it can be depressing after awhile at your young age of 55 and late 40’s.

We moved here 18 years ago. My husband was 60, I was 42. Plenty of activities for everyone. We love it! I would do it again in a heartbeat!

Default age is a state of mind

I was 54 and my husband 57 when we first came to the Villages. We were amazed by the energy and the vitality of the people who lived here compared with many of the 55 plus communities we had toured. We bought here for the lifestyle and have never regretted our decision. My husband has 80 year olds on his softball team that can put him to shame!

That would seem understandable. However, my experience is quite the opposite - it seems most here drive like they are in a great big hurry. That's likely because they spent the better part of their lives being that way and old habits are hard to break - but many times you just can't drive fast enough to stay out of everyone else's way, including on the golf cart trails.

Default Considering TV move also

I'm 59 and my wife is 55. We're on our way down from California in a few weeks in hopes of taking the plunge. We've done the lifestyle visit and have friends who love TV. We both work from home and don't think for a minute we'll be out of place.

I moved here last year at 56. I’m having a ball. There’s so much to do. I would recommend a life style visit or rent for awhile.
