    Just A Number

    I think from year to year I don't notice much change in myself. So age is just a number. If we look at every 5-10 years, then yes, I see change. Other than that, it's just one year longer here. Im okay with that. I have no problem with my age as long as Im living in the best...

    Another Birthday So What !!!

    When another birthday, is about to descend upon us, we want to forget it's here. Who needs this reminder, it already has turned another year. Just trying to keep up with everything, is hard enough to do. So who wants to think about, getting older too. It's no big deal, it's how...

    Have Never Lived By The Rules ...

    I don't think there has ever been a time in my life where I have lived by the "age" rule.  I've always followed my own path and not kept to conventional ideas about what should be done at certain ages.  I've never regretted it ... I've always been "...

    No Title, Just a Quick Little Vent.

    I am 24. Though it kinda annoying but both flattering that people think I'm anywhere from 14-20 (but mostly teens). Is it the way I dress? It's not like I don't like looking young, but there are drawbacks to it and it just irks me sometimes. Like when I apply for jobs, it doesn't...

    A Number Doesn't Mean Much

    My age is supposedly fifty, but I really dont feel much different than when I was twenty-five. Does that just mean that I never grew up? I've seen people who are "old", despite their age, and I don't want to be like that..... When I was thirty, I was dating a woman who was forty...

    All In The Mind

    My mind doesn’t seem to know the difference…my body well somewhat more. I will say that I think one of the reasons older men like younger women is not so much because younger women are sexier but when a man looks into a woman’s face he imagines that he looks the same age...

    Age is a number to a certain point. I mean there is a limit to anything. For example a 17yr old and a 22yr old may talk and find that they have somethings in common and possibly make a conection. Who know? Its also depends on the prospective of the person as well. I knw that when...

    One Of The Things That Never Fails

    One of things that never fails to **** me off is when someone has the gall to point out my age as detrimental or judge me on account of it. I've talked to plenty of stupid older men and women on here so trust me, age doesn't necessarily indicate wisdom. Some people just get more...

    Age is certainly not an indication of maturity, it's a numeric label attached to a person and increases involuntarily regardless of behaviour or choice.

    Choose Your Own Age

    Once upon a time when people lived only 30 or 40 years maximum, aging was probably the same process for everybody. Nowadays this is simply not true anymore. People who are 25 look like 35, people who are 50 look like they are in their 30's, not to mention how the mental and...

    I think age is just a number because, I'm only 16 and I am not what a lot of people think teenagers are.  I'm a grown-up mother and I take a lot of responsibilities.

    Of course this is not true.  Age exists and it is a reality.  And I think it is stupid not to accept it since it accepts you. So yes, age is a towering reality in life.  Any woman and this man will tell you that it is. I was always very indifferent to it and I...
