  1. He is not my age.
    He is the same age as me.
    He is the same age as I.
    We are of an age.
    We are of the same age.
    He and I are of an age.
    He and I are of the same age.
    He is as old as I.

    (Are they all the same? Do I have to use 'I' or 'me'?)
    Use "I" not "me" - and the expression including "of" is not in everyday use. "We are the same age" is normal. How would you rephrase the others?

    I am a first grader in middle school.
    In the US, middle school usually starts with 6th or 7th grade, not 1st. Otherwise, these expressions are fine.

    I am a first year student in middle school.

    <b<Everything in #3 is correct. =)

  2. He is not my age. (Would be more specific to indicate younger or older.)
    He is the same age as me. (colloquial/informal)
    He is the same age as I. ("am" is inferred.)
    We are of an age. (not used)
    We are of the same age. ("Of" not needed.)
    He and I are of an age. (not used)
    He and I are of the same age. ("Of" not needed.)
    He is as old as I. ("am" is inferred.)

    A "first grader" would be in the first year of elementary school.

    The expressions in #3 are correct, but the listener is likely to be at a loss to respond to the question on personality. "Like" can be substituted for "am interested in."

    I hope this helps. Thanks again for asking.
