    Don't Feel My Age

    When I was 21 my mother told me she was in her 50s before she stopped thinking of herself as a girl. I don't feel my age, and I don't look it most days either (this is a chronic problem, although less of a problem per se the older I get). I started having a problem with...

    Annoys Me

    I'm 19 and I guess biologically and by society's standards, I am a 'woman'. But I don't feel like a woman at all. Ofcourse this is just my thoughts but when I think of a woman, I think of a mature, classy, stylish and self-controlled person. I may be mature sometimes but I don't...

    Definitely.

    "woman" has too many negative connotations for me. for instance, the whole "blossoming into a woman" thing sucks aspercreme on so many levels that i won't even attempt to list them here. also, "woman" sounds all.....grown up. official. mature...

    Definitely.

    I'm kinda in the phase right now where I'm not a girl anymore, but not quite a woman. But if I had to pick one, I'd say I was a girl. And quite frankly, becoming a woman is about learning to stand on your own feet and living life your way. The same as becoming a man. It's about...

    What Makes A Girl A Woman?

    Many challenges in life taught me to grow up fast. I've always tricked people when it comes to guessing my age. I guess you could say I have wisdom beyond my years. But even then, with all the responsibilities and lessons I've learned, I still feel like a girl. I've experienced...

    I just love a girl I can relate to. Who loves science fiction and fantasy. Who loves video games and superheroes. And off course if they have glasses, that's just a great bonus!

    I don't need all people to like me, because in your life there is always someone who dislike you. And I don't want to be what they like if I have to be fake person.
