Don't worry about what that Gaian said, sweetie. You can't teach the ignorant. Gaia has always been a place for the mixing and mingling of varied ages. I've met a variety of wonderful people here of all ages...and I've found that the real pervs are the younger users. Gaia set out to be a site that had PG13 standards, which does not mean that it meant to exclude older users from the site. -sigh- You seem like a sweet person to me and your efforts were well-intended.
Back on topic...WOW...in their 70's? I love how the age range for Gaia is so varied.
I'm 33 now, I was 25 when I joined around 05, mainly because a friend of mine had - she liked the RPing, I liked the art shops haha (and later, the RPing) She left, I stayed for a bit - I don't stick around now much, but I had a lot of friends around the same age, it was nice that not everyone was 13. I knew a lovely lady who was in her 50s and another dude, one of my bffs, that was in his early 40s, there's no age for internet relaxation/games, tell you what
