More reliable than wrinkles
David Gillies explains:
You know you're getting old when it's 9.30 and instead of chatting to the amazingly cute girl next to you you're thinking, "if I finish up this beer I can be in bed by ten."
And worse, the idea of being in bed with the aforementioned amazingly cute girl doesn't even occur to you.

I think that would be a fairly reliable clue.
Or it could be more in line with what one guy with some miles on him observed to the (male) lunch room crowd : "Some nights I'm so tired of sexual relations I want to respond in kind - Not tonight, dear. I just took an aspirin." Sounds like the recipe to counter marriage breakup wasn't in play.You know. Grounds of mutual incompatibity. The girls need to be more patable and the men need more income.
Another reliable indication is when a cute girl asks what, in retrospect, is an obvious pickup question, and your response is to answer it and go home.
On that basis, I got old about age 19.
Personally speaking, I think a night of hot fun is being in bed by ten with a good book and a purring cat. I don't know when the hell I reached that point, but it's here and now.
