2 You don't like toys anymore

It depends. For example I'm 26 and I still like stuffed animals but I like DIFFERENT types then when I was a kid.

When I was a kid, I liked Barney plushes. I literally dragged the EVERYWHERE. They're now dumb.

Now I like horses, Perry the Platypus, and a minion.

I stopped playing with toys once I was 13.

Kind of like in Toy Story 3, where Andy grows up and has to give away his toys. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Well, I still enjoy toys, but I don't have time to play anymore. - NumNumNum

3 You care about the opposite sex more

I might be attracted to the opposite sex but that doesn't meant I'm going to be lovey dovey any time soon.

I haven't had a crush since I was eight. But, I have made more friends of the opposite gender since then. - BeatlesFan1964

Yeah, I always liked boys, but boys never liked me. Anyway... - NumNumNum

M I SURE LOVE ME SOME HETERONORMATIVITY *SLURP SLURP* MM GOOD - AsteroidCat

4 You think every thing people younger than you do is bad

What? I'm a teenager but I think playing with young kids are awesome! I like playing with both kids and teenagers. If anything playing with adults is the most boring. - Goku02

Well, when they throw tantrums over simple things like Caillou, then yes. I hope kids never watch Caillou.

That explains my young playmate - Neonco31

I just don't interact with younger people you know, and I don't agree because little ones are just so cute. If there's someone who does annoye me, that's my youner sister - NumNumNum

6 You discover new music

My music taste was significantly different 5 years ago. Back then, I pretty much just liked whatever was on the radio. Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber etc. But I started getting into bands like Evanescence and eventually Three Days Grace. - 3DG20

Yup, I only used to like Hip Hop and Jazz but now I like Heavy Metal, Rock, Electronic, Ambient, Chill step, Epic Orchestra, and some others I can't think of - Mcgillacuddy

Yeah still trying to find good bands to listen to so far I've recently listened to Evans Blue and decided I kinda like them.

Actually, as a kid I hated music. Now it's the most important thing in my life! - NumNumNum

Generally, I mean, I'm still friends with many people I've known for a long time, but how often I see them varies. - BeatlesFan1964

Yeah, I did notice this with my group of friends.

Growing facial hair for the first time was the best. I started to realize how sexy it made me look - Mcgillacuddy

A sign a girl hits puberty is when she has her first period. It's awful. - Elric-san

9 You get more emotional

Doesn't apply to me. I'm more emotional when I was younger. I keep getting colder and colder as I grow older, and is pretty much emotionless at times - Goku02

When I was younger I dark and isolated now that I'm older I'm just bored and tired.

I have been noticing this in me. I hate being emotional, I wish I was less emotional and I cared less.

Heck yeah, but I was always like that. But instead of being cute now, I'm annoying - NumNumNum

10 It is your 13th birthday

This reminds me of that plot element from Codename: Kids Next Door where if you're a Kids Next Door operative and you finally become 13 years old, you have to be decommissioned since you're no longer a kid and now you're a teenager. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

That birthday's already passed pretty soon next year I'm going to have a 15th birthday god I feel old.

I know that it says 13 on my profile, but I'm 12, I only put 13 so you can see the rest of my profile. - BeatlesFan1964

Turned 13 about 2 months ago - NumNumNum

11 You think you are too old to go trick or treating

I stopped Trick or Treating when I was like 10 because I realized why go to people's homes to get such a small amount of candy when I could just get my mom to buy a big ass bag of the candy I want from Stater Bros? - Mcgillacuddy

Well, I went trick or treating this year, but I instantly regretted it, cause I went to houses where kids my age were giving candy... BUT I love CANDY

I didn't go trick or treating this year. Not because I thought I was too old, because I just didn't want to. - BeatlesFan1964

My last year trick or treating was when I was 12. - 3DG20

12 You started spend time alone

Yeah, because you want no interaction with the outer world - NumNumNum

13 You go shopping by yourself

I shop with my Mom still since she buys my stuff but she's very in tune with what kind of clothes I like. My Dad is kinda the opposite. Even though my clothing style is based on his taste, he sometimes thinks that I my clothes have to be expensive for them to be "high quality" - Mcgillacuddy

Me and my sister were only able to shop at the mall by ourselves with her friends one time. Otherwise, we always have to go shopping with our mom. And trust me, it's just DREADFUL whenever I shop with my mom. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I don't, my parents are overprotective, so I never did this, and I probably won't until I am 18.

Yeah, because if I go shopping with my mom, I'm not getting anything I want - NumNumNum

Not THAT often, but definitely more than before. - BeatlesFan1964

Nope, nope, nope - NumNumNum

Eh every once and a while but not too often unlike Metts I'm not a sex addict.

Hey it's true, but don't do it too early. Higher risk of STD - Mcgillacuddy

Okay, maybe not like that, but when I was 14, I definitely began to notice how I started hating more and more people. I am definitely not who I was before. - 3DG20

I'm currently going through this as a teenager. And my friends. And my enemies. And my classmates. And strangers. And- - AsteroidCat

I've always been that one guy that "hates everything," but I don't hate things that I used to love. - BeatlesFan1964
