‘Ride It Like You Stole It’ and Other Ways to Defy Aging Stereotypes

We asked our Facebook followers how they defy aging stereotypes. Their answers made us want to dance around in skinny jeans.

I’ve stopped giving a damn what other people think. I do as I please. Wear whatever I please. Think however I please. I’m more fully myself — my real self — at 60 than I ever was at 30. — Kim Smith

I am neither settling nor settling in. I’m always looking for new adventures, challenges, and roads to travel. — Wendy L. Cohan

Started modeling/acting at 67. — Harriet Dobin

I rock my skinny jeans! I have no problem telling everyone in 65. I’m not affected by others’ opinions of me. — Cathy Justice

Finished third in my first sprint triathlon at 61 years young. — Teri Fields

Every once in awhile I climb a tree. — Tonya L. Langhorne

Lots and lots of fantastic sex! — DeAna Homeyer

Punk rock shows, like Rancid and Dropkick Murphys, then Weezer and the Pixies. Coming up: Bad Religion, Black Flag, Offspring. Also seeing My Morning Jacket (not punk rock) at Red Rocks this August. — Dee Laamann

Hop on my Vespa and ride it like I stole it! — Tracy Olomi

I dance in stores when a good song comes on. — Bonnie Trott

I follow the K-pop group BTS. — June Seghni

Red hair, red convertible, driving donuts in parking lot, some tasteful tattoos on my neck. — Dobi May

I have a 300-horsepower Mustang with the number plate R1 SXY. — Rachel Evershed

I’m a proud 55-year-old, and I just started school to become a nurse. I ride my bicycle every day to school with my backpack on. — Carina Sennov

Hang out with all the young folk at work. — Suzanne Goodman

I’m 50. I kickbox (gloves, bag, and all) three times a week and lift weights on my off days. In summer I rollerblade about 5 miles every day. — Amy Haushalter Pantaleo

I still enjoy video games. — Diana Dodson
