初老症
    2018-03-13  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Meaning:

“初” means “early,” “老” means “old,” and “症” means “disease.” The phrase refers to a syndrome that concerns people who are in their late 20s or early 30s. They are considered both not young and not old. Although they are still young compared to older people, they often feel weary and aged. Many have complained online about having started to worry about losing hair, finding wrinkles on their faces and needing to sign up for gym memberships. People who claim to have this syndrome also say they are afraid to start a relationship and do not want to make new friends.

Example:

A: 我最近开始喝热饮了。虽然天气变热了,我对雪糕、冷饮却一点欲望也没有。

wǒ zuìjìn kāishǐ hē rèyǐn le。suīrán tiānqì biàn rè le,wǒ duì xuěgāo、lěngyǐn què yīdiǎn yùwàng yě méiyǒu。

I’ve started to order only warm and hot drinks. Even with the warm weather, I have no desire for ice cream or iced drinks.

B: 哈哈,我早就抱着保温杯生活了。我现在都是10点半就准备上床睡觉了。

haha,wǒ zǎojiù bàozhe bǎowēnbēi shēnghuó le。wǒ xiànzài dōushì shídiǎnbàn jiù zhǔnbèi shàngchuáng shuìjiào le。

Haha, I have already begun carrying a thermos. And every night at around 10:30 I’ll sleep.

A: 那你现在还会去酒吧玩吗?

nà nǐ xiànzài háihuì qù jiǔba wán ma?

So do you still hang out in bars?

B: 我连老朋友都不联系了,更别说去酒吧了。

wǒ lián lǎopéngyǒu dōu bú liánxì le,gèngbiéshuō qù jiǔba le。

Now I barely contact my old pals, let alone go to bars.

A: 这么说我们都患上初老症了。

zhème shuō wǒmen dōu huànshàng chūlǎozhèng le。

I think we both have “old man syndrome.”
