    I Don't Believe It

    I got cigarettes for my roommate the other day at the convenience store, and they carded me. Does that mean I don't look over 18? Then today, when I got some goodies at the bridal shop, she thought I was 20. I said "that's nice of you". I rationalized it though, telling myself...

    Story Of My Life

    To this day, people will ask me if I'm old enough to drive, or to enter a contest that requires you do be at least 18. I'm nearly 25.

    I Dont Look My Age

    Looking young runs in my family. I just turned 48 and people say I look like I'm in my late 20's or early 30's. Indeed it's a compliment, but sometimes I wish I looked older. I feel like I don't fit in with others my age. My mother is 87 and she could pass for mid 60's. My...

    Isn't It Flattering?

    I will be 44 in a few months and most people think I'm around 35. I love it! I eat healthy, exercise, have never smoked or had alcohol and usually drink only water, and never wear make up. I think all of that has something to do with looking young.

    No Really I'm The Big Sister

    When people 'guess' my age they generally guess 3 to 4 years younger then I actually am. which i find strangely entertaining. My sister who is 4 years younger then me is often thought of by acquaintances and coworkers to be older then me. Even people have known us forever...

    Society has long become more open to the idea

    of older men younger women relationship. Younger women are more vibrant, more full of life and that energy can spill over onto you, making older men feel younger in return. Typically, women mature at a faster rate than men do and sometimes a 50 year old man is more compatible...

    Forever Young

    People can be nice when it's easy. They used to say "you look so young for your age" "you can't possibly be that old". Then...it all stopped. Or that is how I perceived it. But looking back on it now. It seems it happened because I felt unworthy to be young and have compliments...

    It's Because I'm Short

    I am 17 years old and a senior, but I'm pretty short. When people I just meet look at me they think 14-15. They seem so surpised when I tell them my real, but the truth is, I kind of enjoy it. I can trick people with my height, lol.
