Maybe people think I'll take it wrong, I have a baby face . I've got to love the little old ladies who come along and ask me if I'm in high school yet, or tell me just how sweet I am with my four-year-old brother (yeah...that's my son...)
That said, from my own perspective in life...it is much more of a compliment to tell someone they're old (equate with wisdom and sagacity, life experience, etc.) than that they're young (immature, naive, etc.)
Regardless of some of the negative connotations with young...I still get a kick out of my husband's co-workers asking him about his teenage daughter. He gets a kick out of their looks of envy when he informs them that that's his wife .
Because of having good genes, exercising, eating right and getting stress out instead of holding it in, I look younger then I am. Because of this people tend not to take me seriously. I've had people my age or a few years younger tell me "You'll see it differently when you get my age" This can be very frustrating and not so much a compliment as many may think. If someone does ask me how young I am, I don't think I will like it.
Agreed! Especially when I started freelancing, I made sure never to have pictures that showed me very well...people take one look at that, laugh, and say, "Yeah, THAT'S the person that's going to write content for and market my website? Are you sure her mommy will let her work overtime??"
The reason for that is because it makes sense. If I were to ask how young you were there wouldn't point a real point in that question where I can recieve information that's necessary. For example, if your dating someone and they ask how old are you, that's relevant. A 18 year old probably won't date a 13 year old. Another example, applying for a job, trying to get a liscence, buying certain magizines (Lol).
I've been looking round all the backlinking sites and they seem to be asking for a date of birth. Tried ignoring it but more than one site they have to have this information by law? Anyway, I did notice some sites use the information by way of introduction - you know, here is so-an-so, 52 years old. So I've taken to lying, I am anything from 20 to 40 depending what year I told them I was born. Cheeky devils! What difference does it make to them what age I am?
young enough to never grow old - young enough to say something that doesn't make sense- young enough to believe in all the things old people don't want to believe in - young enough to keep experimenting with life - and most important of all Iam young enough for my grandkids to keep asking if I'll ever grow up
As you can see from my profile pic if you looked I am ancient, my lovely inside and outside girlfriend is 24/5 and I am getting younger - my hair is growing back and everything. I look forward to more youth hormones sweeping me back to peaceful babyhood before i go back to dust.
I am 48, but when I was about to turn thirty -one I told my friend I wished I could do thirty over. I didn't get it right the first time. She said "Well Faye you got your wish, you should've wished for a calculator though. You're not turning thirty-one, you're turning thirty!"
Is there anybody out there old enough or interested enough to miss silent films? Care to write a...hub about it? My favorite (not that I'm a great expert) is one called The Penalty starring Lon Chaney Sr. (not Lon...
Should we raise the age of enlistment to 21?I believe that many young boys and some girls join the armed services without thinking much on the matter. Trading college scholarships for time behind a gun.
