    I Am Older Than 25 But I Don't Feel Like I Am

     I'm not the only one who feels this way. My mother [who is in her sixties] says she still imagines herself to be in her thirties and a colleague has told me that he has a mental image of himself as a perpetual 28 year old even though he is now 51. What I would like to know...

    Older Than 30 Too, Yikes!

    I think 25 is the prime age to be, but I don't really feel any different than how I am at 31 than I did at 25, but I guess I'm much wiser now.

    Me :) (?)

    I turned 25 years old on my birthday in 1999. :) When is my birthday, you may be thinking?   It is the day in 1974 when I decided to be born, 7 or so weeks early. There isn't too much more to say about that that had any relevance.

    Not By Much

    I am a shade older than 25.  My 28th birthday will be coming up in the new year.  What amazes me is how my thoughts about age have changed over the years.  For example, ten years ago I thought 30 was old.  Now that I am near 30 myself I see that it is still...

    The full beard and mustache doesn't help me look any younger. My voice only adds to the effect. There has even been college students who believed I was older than them!

    And to be perfectly honest I also fantasize about much older women. Having an older woman seduce and teach me is so erotic.

    I feel like I'm going to melt when older men look at me. I'm 18. I love getting attention from them. They have so much experience and are so masculine.
