I Have a Young Sounding Voice

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 77 People


    I've been told I sound young on the phone but I don't know how true that is. I don't hear it, but apparently my daughter (who is 27 yrs younger than me) and I sound quite a bit alike. My mother used to call and when I'd answer, she'd ask, "What's your mom doing? Can I...

    That Would Be Me.

    Often when the phone rings at my house I am the one to answer it. Regularly the person on the other end responds to my "Hello" with "Hello, may I speak to your mother?" I always laugh at the comment and politely tell the caller, "Well, I am the mother...

    I Am Not a Little Girl -.-

    My voice is quite high-pitched, so a lot of the time I sound whiny without even trying to be. A lot of people don't like listening to me speak, ahaha. Whenever I make a call/answer the phone, they always think I'm a little girl -.- it's so annoying.

    *rolls Eyes*

    Especially when I get nervous, the pitch of my voice goes up.  I STILL get the occasional "Can I talk to your mom, hon?" when I answer the phone!

    Not a Bad Thing

    That isn't a bad thing. Having an old, croaky voice at a young age could be though. As well as possibly creepy. But thats life for you, take what you're given and be thankful. In the words of my ever adviceful Nana. And possibly many other Grannies. Young souding voices sort of...

    I Hate It..

    It can get on my nerves that I have this childish voice, but what I really dislike is my "r". I found out that people in bavaria have a similar r. However, I really don't like it.

    Childish Voice

    LOL - I've had the same experience with people on the phone thinking I'm a kid or a girl. For a guy, I have a childish or even <sigh> feminine voice. Some times I wish I had a more authoritative masculine voice, but that's just what I am. Trying to change it only sounds...

    Hey Little Girl Is Your Mommy Home?

    I answered the phone the other day and a woman asked me "Hey little girl are your parents' home?" "Can I speak with the owner of the house?" I told her "I'm the owner of this house." She was a little confused. "You're not a little girl?" I said "No." She asked "How old are you...

    So I've Been Told

    I am a phone freak but I'm often told the first time that I speak to someone that I have a young or soft spoken voice. I don't know if that's good or bad but I guess it works for me. It certainly helps when I want to be seductive... hhmmmm   *and it helps when a sales...
