    When you were my age?

    Hello.

    Please I would want to know the correct form to say, and If this question belong to that part of grammar called "Conditionals"?

    1.- When you were my age...
    2.- When you are my age...
    3.- When you get to my age...

    The context is when giving advice. For example: "When you (...) You will think I was right".

    Thanks for your help.

    The underlined clauses are temporal (time), not conditional clauses.
