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.

It's not about a particular number, much more about where I'm at health-wise as I get older. If you've got nothing going on from the neck up, what's the point?
