Only way is up, not down.

It's REALLY hard to talk to anyone who isn't my age or older. We are in completely different worlds. I'm 40 in 2 years and 5 months.

Why?

I've always connected with people of different ages. People exactly the same age as each other have a bit more shared history, but others have different perspectives that are usually interesting if nothing else. What is it that doesn't work? If you can't relate, ask questions, then let them do the talking and be amused.

The most interesting person, if I had to name one, that I’ve met in the last while is a man in his late 50s. He is open minded, secure in himself and has very little ego. A lot of people younger than me, or my age, are riddled with grievances, insecurity or only interested in satisfying their wants. I’d gladly hang out with this older man any day for conversation. Maturity and inner peace are 2 characteristics that are hard to find.

Ridiculous

If that’s really true, how do you expect to be able to communicate with anyone? We live in a world full of people of various ages, and if you can only talk to people your own age, not only are you limiting your ability to learn from others, you’re limiting your ability to be employed in anything other than a job where you don’t have to interact with anyone. It’s one of the silliest things I’ve ever read on here.

If you really want to talk to anyone you need to know how to listen to them.

A different take

I’m about 4 years older than you and feel like Gen Z is my spirit animal. It’s like someone opened a time capsule, uncorked a bottle, and a genie shaped like Blink 182 was unleashed.

You are starting to figure it out

Its not about age, its about stage. So next suggest you don't rule out finding your help and wisdom from those precious few old souls in young bodies.

More divisive narrow minded nonsense. Some of you enjoy training people to think in barriers. Grow up, supposed to be getting wiser with age not more foolish.

Do you want to talk to 18 year olds?
