Would you go back to your teens if you could? twenties, thirties? More than 2,200  adults gave some surprising answers to  a recent Today  survey.

A demographically diverse sample of men and woman from different parts of the US  were asked, “If you could live forever in good health at a particular age, what age would you like to be?” Before we go there, what would you guess?…

I think you’ll be surprised…

 

 

The average response was 50.

Not a teens, 20-something or even 30-something…50.

People aged 18 to 36 said the ideal age is 38.

Folks between 37 and 48 said 49.

49 to 67 year-olds said 55 is ideal.

People over 68 said 67 would be ideal.

The average among males was 47, 53 for women.

People with kids at home 45.  Empty nesters said 53.

When I turned forty, I hated it. Fifty felt like a badge of honor.
