Ever feel like going out until 3 AM and smashing Four Lokos as if there's no tomorrow has lost all its meaning? Or that the Lord of The Rings trilogy is not as deep and profound as you once believed it to be? Well, if you're afraid that something's wrong with you, you're not alone.

Pondering what we are all secretly thinking, u/To55ursalad opened a flood of great, relatable answers by asking the AskReddit community, "What do you feel you are losing interest in as you grow older?" Ranging from your usual suspects - video games, opinions of others, dating - going all the way to more philosophical takes like "society" or "life", we've gathered the most interesting answers that will surely resonate with many. Unless, of course, getting old has made you lose all interest in that too.

I loved Anthony Bourdain. I read his book and watched all his shows. I thought he was really cool and sexy and I loved cooking shows, I learned a lot watching him. When he died, I cried - the only celebrity I’ve been upset about. I felt guilty for being upset about a celebrity because my friends made fun of people like that, but my chef sister told me “he doesn’t count, he’s actually a cool celebrity.” Ever since then I’ve felt weird about this sentiment :/ it feels really judgmental. Let people like stupid shallow things; people are multi-faceted. (I like true crime which some people think is shallow and f****d up, I can’t hate people for enjoying the Kardashians)

So, none of the honest people that want to change the world for the better get into politics? Or maybe they get corrupted immediately? Or maybe everything in the world isn't going your way, so you throw a tantrum and blame "every politician in the world". Sorry if I offend all you upvoters but I'm so tired of this dumb trope.

Society. Serious answer. I’m done with people and politics and consumerism and all of it.

I recently came across this statement, that I agree with...

When you're younger you spend more money on "fun", when you're older you spend more money on comfort/convenience.

I find as I've gotten older, I'm less interested about having "fun", and I'm way more concerned in being comfortable.

It's not that I don't want to have a fun time, it's just comfort is more interesting to me now, lol.

Do what you want but this seems to be less about bowling and more just hanging out and catching up with your friends. If they do that in other ways, or just don't care to at all, is perfectly fine, of course. But calling being with your friends a 'meh event' says more about that person than about the event itself, in my opinion.

In addition to material things, I’ve lost interest in gossip or hearing about any mistakes people have made in the past. To be, bringing up someone’s past or any gossip about them is a sign of very low intelligence. It suggests you have no original thoughts, so you rely on the imperfections of others to fuel conversation.

Nobody is perfect. People make mistakes. What’s important is who you are today, right now, and who you’re trying to be in the future. If you try to talk to me about someone’s past, it’ll be the last time we speak.

But as I’ve aged I find myself politically homeless.

This isn’t really a good thing to lose interest in, but honestly, my fitness. I saw an ad yesterday that said “get the abs of your dreams” (or some s**t like that) and I just didn’t care; I thought “nah, had abs in my 20s, that’s enough of that.” I’ve been big into working out and had physical hobbies, and was toned, trimmed and strong. I spent my teens, 20s, and early 30s competing in martial arts, doing CrossFit, running, biking, powerlifting, always making time for the gym . . . And within the last couple years the desire has just gone. I felt myself getting out of breath going up stairs recently (in my defense I was going up like 16 flights with heavy gear after just jogging from the back of the parking lot); like how the f**k does that happen?!

When I was really active, I used to dream of having defined abs. Got close a couple of times, but never really made it. Now I'm overweight, but making changes and getting healthier. I have a few goals, but defined muscles is not one of them. I want my cholesterol and BP to be healthy. I want to have enough energy to be able to run around with my daughter when she starts walking. And I want to be slim enough to fit into regular clothes, without having to go to the big and tall store (I live in a country where clothes sizes are much smaller than my home country).

But as I’m getting older, I find myself making less time for it and feeling like there are more important things to do. I’ve also kind of adopted the “if it’s not productive it’s a waste of time” mentality (not saying it’s a good thing, but I’m too busy with work and school to not be productive).

I had very few interests throughout my life.

Food
Television
Manga
Pokemon

Food doesnt taste as good as it did when I was younger. It also makes me fat, so I cant just eat what I like. And as I get older, my taste buds and digestion system will get worse.

Television has been less entertaining over the years. Predictable and sanitized. Everything being political or a remake or a live action version of a cartoon doesnt help.

Manga that I like is hard to fond in English and I often lose track of manga I like

Pokemon is fine but...lonely without someone to play with. And I've never had that.

Interestingly enough, my interest in making a friend or having a relationship is rising. I was always alone as a child, and even in college, I was content being alone. But now i'm on decade 3, and I have been putting in real effort to find connection. Nothing but failure so far, but who knows?

And maybe my fading interests will be more interesring with someone to share them with.

I'm 69 and didn't have friends as a child, because of where we lived. I believe it stunted me in so many ways. Try and get out a little. The few great but temporary friends that passed quickly through me life were the best. Miss them all.
