    Welcome to HubPages, Peggydeee!  Do your think your youthful looks distract people from the real you?

    I would say yes, but that can be a good thing.  For example 100 guys walk up and talk to you because you are attractive.  You will have a pretty good idea of that type of guy.  However, the one guy that is really interested in you will approach you differently and you will notice that.  You can easily weed out all of the guys that would waste your time.  I think having one person knowing the real you is enough.smile

    No, mainly because I look my age. I'll be 35 this September. Now my being young has distracted people from the real me. I have 4 children the oldest is going to be 19 this December so if you consider that made me a mom at 16. For a very long time people couldn't see past my age to what a great parent I really was. It took my kids growing up and being the ones getting great grades, working steady jobs, starting college, my oldest recently purchased a condo of his own with no help from me at all!
    I now have the respect of all sorts of people, teachers, parents, employers and the friends of my kids for being a great parent.
    Looking young is fantastic, but being 35 and having the respect of so many others struggling with young families is amazing!
