Ditto most of above. As long as I'm productive, contributive, and not a burden to my children or society, I'll go for 100 and beat my Mom, who passed from this level at 98.

As many comments before, as long as I'm relatively healthy, maintain my hearing and eyesight and can enjoy daily life.

As long as I can remain useful, independent and relatively pain -free. Much of that depends upon Social Security and Medicare, so it is not age-related. It is Trump-(lack-of )-care related.

I love life now at 63 and if I could stay as healthy and active as I am now I would want to live forever.  However, if I can't enjoy life  and be daily grateful for all that I have then it will be time to leave.

I met my current Significant Other when I was 75, a year and a half after my husband of 26 years had passed away.  I'm 77 now and S O and I are still going strong!  There is life even when you are three quarters of a century old!  One of the secrets is to keep your body moving.  I am still Rock n Roll dancing at S O's band gigs.

I am not wedded to a number. If I begin to fail physically or mentally, I hope I drop off my perch.
