Top 10 Things You Only Like When You're Older

"EW! That!? I could never imagine doing THAT! " Oh younger you, you were so naive.

The Top Ten

1 Kissing

Like, seriously, man. Cooties. - higgsboson2142

2 Reading

I can't think of anyone of any age who wouldn't appreciate reading, at least! - PositronWildhawk

I've been reading as long as I can remember. Guess I'm just unusual. - PetSounds

Well you are unusual though I don't know if the reading habit is a major part of it 😉 - Billyv

In a school environment very obviously because of the environmental factors - Kevinsidis

I remember reading newspapers at just 2 years old! - Pony

3 Tomatoes

I have always liked tomatoes, but not in all forms. I've never been able to swallow ketchup. - PositronWildhawk

Along with tomato sauce, tomato soup, etc. - PetSounds

Love tomatoes. All forms. - keycha1n

I despise tomatoes but I love ketchup, tomato sauce (without the chunks) etc. etc. etc. - RiverClanRocks

4 Exercising

I certainly hope so. When my metabolism slows, I'll sure need it. - keycha1n

5 Horror Movies

Maybe so but the interest in watching them comes fairly young. Until they get older and release that they weren't missing out on a lot. - ParasN2000

6 Money
7 Fashion
8 Classical Music

I'd go so far as under the age of 18. When someone asks me what music I like, I mention The Beatles, David Bowie, Paul Simon, and The Doors before I mention classical--just so they don't immediately think I'm weird.

Just one thing: concert bands generally don't perform classical music. - PetSounds

Sure, there's some people who will NEVER respect classical music, but I'm sure most of us were dying to get up and run around during any orchestra or concert band concerts that we saw under the age of 10. - higgsboson2142

Definitely not for kids, or usually not even for teenagers. Appreciation of classical music is closely linked to maturity.

I kinda do like classical music. - Pony

9 Violent Movies
10 Rap Music

Most people acquire their taste for this when they go to jail for the first time.

I'm about as goody-two-shoes as it gets, and I enjoy select raps. The meaningful ones, at least. The other stuff is terrible and screamy. You can say it isn't real music, I don't particularly mind. I don't have musical taste, I just listen to the words. - keycha1n

The Contenders

11 Girls

Boys in elementary school hate girls and make fun of them. But in middle and high school, they have crushes on them.

When I was younger I thought girls were superior to boys, and I'm a boy (don't judge me) - darthvadern

I quite like my own gender. But I admit, first guys don't even want to touch girls, then they can't stop. **sigh** there's no winning in this, right? - keycha1n

12 Sex

Kids don't even know what it is - darthvadern

You meant ONLY right? but everyone does not like sex sometimes

This Shouldn't Be Here - BeatlesFan1964

13 Big Dogs
14 The Banjo

I'm not even joking. Little kids seem to think of the banjo as some weird foreign piece of machinery, but then suddenly you turn 14 and "Woah you play the banjo!? Dude, awesome! " - higgsboson2142

15 Violent Video Games

This item doesn't belong on this list. Kids play that stuff all the time.

16 Virginity
17 Socks

11-year-old self: Why did you get me socks for Christmas? They're boring!

21-year-old self: Yes! I needed these!

18 Broccoli
19 Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis.
