    We Were Both Judged On Our Ages.

    I am 48 and she is 19. Our relationship began three years ago. Now she was always over the age of consent. People don't seem to need any more information than that, in fact they generally don't want more. Its like they are afraid that knowing more might make them not hate me...

    No Longer Perky

    For those of you who, like me, have re-entered the singles market, I'm certain you've found it as daunting as I have.  I'm not certain what the men in the room have to face,..but from a woman's (notice I write WOMAN and not "girl") point of view, it's ugly. Between the...

    I hate the fact that

    now that I'm older, I'm always told that "oh you should now better since your (age) now." I mean I'm a growing teen. I still have the right to be a kid from time to time and shouldn't I be enjoying life the fullest? I mean sure, my childhood is gone over but it doesn't mean that...

    Does Age Really Matter?

    I hate being judged by my age. A person could totally love and admire my personality, yet they don't respect or accept the fact that I am young. Age separates and takes away so much. Who says I have to be a certain age to understand and comprehend simple things. There's older...

    You Learn Something New......

    Today I learned that judging a book by it's cover is pretty much a standard practice. I overcame that character flaw years ago. I learned then, beauty is only skin deep, and the true beauty lies within. I posed a question on the site today, and was somewhat surprised just how...

    I enjoy being judged by my outside cover,

    and being told I'm not "hang-out" material, yep and one last thing, it's hilarious how people underestimate me, and what I can do. Yeah, there's totally something wrong with me.... Ohhhhh, darn.

    I Am No Fool.

    I am smart. Intelligent. Sharp. Bright. So just because you have lived longer, your grey matter is better. Lovely. I can't even begin to tell you how many times conversations have come down to "Well I have more life experiance". Well then, fool, why are you such an ignorant...

    So I've liked this girl in my 1st block

    for weeks. We talked for hours today. Somehow our conversation came to a point where she said I was too young for her. She's a junior. She thought I was a senior until I told her and then all of the sudden she's not interested. I swear. There's always something wrong with me...

    People are always like "your too young

    for that" when ever people say that phase to me it kinda makes to want to do it more than I did before or makes me want to punch them in the face just to show them that age has nothing to do with anything in life.

    His Professional Opinion

    When I was about 22 I went to the doctor because I thought I was having problems with my kidneys. When I got there the doctor started asking me some questions. He was reading through all my medical records when he came across the fact that I had two kids. He looked at me in shock...

    Magic 18

    The question I always ask is how come I can't legally smoke the day before my 18th birthday, but the very next day it's alright because I'm 18? It goes for lots of other things, too. Turning 18 doesn't suddenly make you a (mentally) mature adult or anything...
