No and yes.
No, I don't mind getting older.
Yes because I am wasting so much of my youth making money that I think until I have enough money to not worry anymore (and maybe retire early) I won't be healthy and fit enough anymore to enjoy myself. But if I don't work enough I will have to work until the last day of my life.

Not afraid, but I reserve the right to grumble and complain about it.

It sucks. You get out of shape, things are less fun, you dont look or feel as good as you used to, you get grumpy, the newest trends and fashion and music piss you off, you have less energy, you cant get the young hot chicks anymore, you get aches and pains and a sore back, you realise that all life is is working, you get to a point where you feel young mentally but old physically, hang overs get worse, you have to watch what you eat unlike when you're young and get away with eating as much junk as you want, etc

and iam only 35 lol..

I'm pretty old, so let me just say that you SHOULD be afraid. Be VERY afraid.

If you aren't, you should be, but not for why you think.

You can keep yourself pretty healthy, things will still go wrong, wear out, break and go bad for no reason expect that you're aging.

However the reason to truly be afraid is that about your late 30s you'll be able to realize exactly how dumb you've been most of your life. Where you should have zagged when you zigged, and regret it.

But this moaning and agony will pass and in your mid to late 40s you'll realize, hey it hasn't been that bad after all. Yes, you're a little slower and it hurts a little more to move but it's not as terrible as you thought it would be when you were 16. Plus you get to make up for it by being more cunning and aware of the tricks of life.

It's not been that bad and I've still got 80 years to go even if I am considered half done.

Plus there's only one alternative, and sadly I've seen a few people in my life take it. One at 40 because they had convinced themselves back in their 20s that life was ruined at 40 if it wasn't precisely as they'd planned it out. The aftermath of that is never good, and it causes a lot of pain and confusion for those left. I can tell you I am nowhere near where I'd planned to be when I was a kid, life is really good at causing your direction to change with some odd screwballs but it's been one fun ride and it's worth it.

Yeah, that age of mine is not a lie, it's ok to be afraid but don't run from it.

Pretty sure I've gone through that every 2-5 years since I was ~15. That feeling of "oh crap, I'm nowhere near where I wanted." At this point I just try to evaluate what I want to do in the next few years and roll with it.

I'm not afraid of it at all. Remember that Walt Disney quote?

With this in mind there's no reason to fear growing old.

Yes. Imoutos are not attracted to a man with gray hair.


Then again, they'll take care of me when I grow old like when I took care of them when they were young.
