I understand your point jp. :)

Personally, and I guess it’s all very ‘personal’ how one regards being a ‘senior’ , I hated the thought of being a senior and fought it at every turn, however I’ve lost that ‘battle’. :D. And btw, I don’t consider 50 being ‘senior’....by 65 one might as well accept it. ;)

I think you worded your comment quite well, re the site ....

Welcome to Buzz, young man ! Enjoy ....(;;)

I'm 69, therefore I'm a senior. I never refer to myself as a senior, even though I tell people that I'm on both Social Security and Medicare. People I work with tell me I look more in my 50's. It's been that way all of my life. When I was 22, some thought that I looked more like 16. It was embarrassing having to prove my age back in 1972, when I went to a theater to buy a ticket too see Alfred Hitchcock's Frenzy. It's not embarrassing to be a senior citizen. It doesn't mean that we are all feeble minded or whatever.

Remembering Harry Chapin 12/7/42-7/16/81
A Better Place to Be

It was an early morning bar room
And the place just opened up
And the little man come in so fast and
Started at his cup
And the broad who served the whisky
She was a big old friendly girl
And she tried to fight her empty nights
By smilin' at the world

I get what you are saying OP.

I am 55 and working almost time and I dont see myself as senior either.

But not sure what other word they should use?
