Just seen it asked on a TV shot called "Ask Rhod Gilbert"

So when were you happiest, or are you blissfully happier now than ever before ?

Twice actually, once when I bought my house aged 30 and second when I retired aged 58.Smile

The day I retired. Not much to stop me getting out to take pictures now.

I believe some research has been done on this subject and most people seemed to say they were happiest around the age of 27 or 28.

20, I think. Got my pilot's license, started a 40 year career the next day, and got married in the fall.

I think it was 28 to 33. At 28 got my house, found a great group of friends who meet up three or four times a year. Then at 30 I sold my house and went travelling for 2 and a half years in Asia and Australasia. Fantastic time.

There have been so many good ones to choose from I'm not sure I can say. At 20 I started my career in IT, at 24 I met Robbie, 26 I spent a brilliant year in America, 28 married Robbie, 30 started a new adventure in France, 34 reached the pinnacle (so far) of my career, 50 spent about 6 months celebrating both mine and Robbie's 50th.

To be honest, I think I am almost always happy and determined to make the most of occasionally pretty rotten circumstances.

I'm happiest constantly at the present moment. I am thankful and appreciate all the experiences, good and bad, that have lead me to the present moment. I often reflect on this.

As an oldie...........................I feel that you have to be happiest at the age you are.........there 'aint no choice folks.....time keep's a movin' on:

Best age?............................30..............Mature enough to have learned a bit, and young enough to really enjoy all things Physical, Intellectual, Emotional, Social..................PIES.....(that is a mnemonic that trainee social workers use for assessments)

I always added the letter F for ...Finacial:

I just wish I knew then what I have learned now:
