12 Sep Peak-boring
Peak-boring, the day you’re no longer cool. According to research done by AirBnB Experiences the age where we reach peak-boring is 39 for men and 35 for women.
Are you boring? Here’s their checklist.
Those in their 30s are less likely to…
- Stay out until the wee hours on a school night
- Try a new hobby
- Go out of the way to make new friends
- Book a spontaneous holiday
- Learn a new skill
- Visit a friend unannounced
- Change jobs
- Go on a spontaneous shopping trip
- Ask someone out
- Try out a new sport
What’s your peak-dullness age? Everyone freaks out about reaching 40. I always say 36 is the worst. In most cases you get to tick the next box 36-50 when asked your age. Then you rethink that at 60 because you tick 60+. There’s no more boxes after that.
On the positive side, research discovered that over 50s were 22 per cent more likely to book a spontaneous holiday and 11 per cent more likely to go for an expensive meal out!
