Nah, you're never too old for MN. Mind you, I don't have any grandchildren but I am 60

Me neither. I'm 56 and feel much too young for Gransnet. I don't have grandchildren yet. There are loads of people in their 40s, 50s, 60s and older on here, and there's something for everyone.

Are the gransnet threads relevant to you?!

Bucking the trend, I'm 54 and a grandma, but still too young for Gransnet!
I've been there, but, it's not very 'me'.

They are very polite on gransnet.

Nope. 50+ with a 16 year old and no intention of moving to GN even when/if I have grandchildren.

Gransnet was a lousy (ageist) idea and I'd be amazed if it was a financial success.

I’m strangely addicted to reading GransNet! (50 with a nine year old)

It's like a glimpse into the future and, at times, quite sad and scary.

No chance. Hitting 50, work FT, youngest is 9, no relevance to me.

Things like that prematurely age you imo.

THe only time I feel slightly too old is when people are moaning about their elderly MIL, or that their elderly parents can't cope with technology/SM/phone etc and then go onto explain that they are in their 50s Grin

I'm 52, my youngest is 16. I seem to manage with technology, phones etc (although sometimes having teens is useful Wink )

Gransnet is far more visually appealing.
I love the typeface and the colour palette.

(Does that suggest that I'm too old? Blush(48))

I am in my late sixties and a grandparent. I rarely feel too old for Mumsnet, but definitely feel too young for Gransnet.

Yes I feel that way op. Looking at empty nest this year dd1 will be home but has started her first year as nqt so will be busy her 3 siblings all at uni or abroad only me the dog and dh.. i will admit i had not looked at gn as i am not a granby and i suspect it will be 5 to 10 years before I am but perhaps I should venture a look.

However I do feel like I'm kinda in limbo not fitting anywhere

I don't think you can be too old for MN.
