I realized that to me, joining would feel too much like declaring myself to be an old person. I wasn't ready to do that, and hopefully never will be.

I find this to be a very strange statement.

I've heard of people who don't like to admit how old they are. Can you explain how that works? Do you deny your age to everyone? What about yourself . . . do you wake up in the morning and say to yourself, "I think I'll pretend to be only 30 today"? And I'm curious how denying your age actually helps. What does denial provide you that honesty about your age does not?
