Someone asked me this question on another site when that person ran into some issue after posting an ad for recruitment. Here’s what I had to say:
It isn’t, per se, but some people do find age a touchy topic when it comes to jobs and careers. What you could have done/said is ‘young minded no matter what age you are’, which would have covered everyone but would have given you a person with a personality like yours (since you said you are a 48 years ‘young person’ yourself). That would have definitely been the better and a more acceptable way to put it across. Good luck with your recruiting efforts!
