I tell it proudly because everyone tells me I look like I'm 18 after I inform them I'm in fact 23. lol I really don't mind, it's a good thing, at least I don't look old, and when I really am old I won't look it :-)
darn right i tell it with pride. i'm 48, i act like in a kid and i worked hard for every gray hair i have or partied hard depending on ones opinion.
I tend to neither hide nor share my age proudly. To me, it's a simple fact of life. It would be nice to be younger with the wisdom of the years, but it is what it is.
Yes, you accept the number and move on. That is a good approach.
I agree that it would be nice to be younger with the wisdom of the years. My in-laws have a plague on their wall that says, "we're too soon old and too late smart". I often think of that as I grow older.
Neither really. I am at the age where no one dare ask! 60 - ouch!!
Right now people asked to guess my age tend to guess about 15 years younger than I am, so I tell it proudly.
I have never been one to hide my age, never saw the point in doing so. I just turned 69 and am just happy to say I made it this far!!
I don't like hiding age. It's telling lie. I tell my original age but there is nothing to proud here.... in my opinion....
I am 66 years old and I always reveal my age "quite proudly."
However, I often wonder if I did not still have all of my hair and teeth, and did not look as young for my age as I do, would I be as "proud" to tell every one my real age as I am.
My age is a detail which I don't offer, but will give when asked. I have never seen the need to broadcast personal details unless asked for them directly.
As a teacher of students in kindergarten I am asked my age quite often...I first ask how old they think I am...I am amused by the answers...I get you are old..you must be at least twenty...to gosh your old...are you a hundred? I always give my age proudly...its nothing to be ashamed of...
i turned 20 on last month's 23rd and find no reason to hide it..
No. I don't hide mine. I'm definitely proud of it. Because I look younger than my age. :p
i am 16 so...theres nothing for me ti hide. I have never lied about my age but there were times where i just didnt tell it! lol because u needed to be 17 to watch this movie so i just said "i dont have my id but i can still watch it right?" and he let me! yay
I never hide my age and I am proud of all of the mistakes I have been able to learn from. I am 17 for the third time and I will soon be 26 for the 2nd time...
I don't necessarily hide my age, but when people find out that I am a grandma, that is when I tell them how old I am. I am always told I don't look my age. I don't wear makeup 'cept on special occasions. I do dye my hair, but I don't rush to cover the gray. I let others see it for a bit before I do.
I was told the other day that I have grey hair, ack!
I used to tell people that i was 19 until my kids started correcting me. lol. Some thought I was only in my 20's. My 12 yr old tells people that I am 67, or he tells them that I am so old my hair is falling out. Gotta love the things your kids say.
I don't tell people my age unless they ask *_*
I do look younger than my age, I used to get IDed at the clubs up until I was 30....
i am proud to tell my age but if it is someone i dont know i dont tell my real ah=ge until i trust them enough
Tell it proudly. I don't see the point hiding your age, plus you are bound to get found out. I think I look okay for my age so I guess that helps. I'm 47 and people usually tell me I don't look it. I figure it's lucky genes and not having had children...but who knows.
Like Emily I look younger than I am and I'm also 23, but people usually think that I am 13 to 15!
I'm proud of my age and ageing. I'm 61 but am routinely told that I look 48 (when I keep up with my hair colorweaves:)
I just let'er rip-- who gives a crap how old u r? Really?!
Hi Christy, I definitely don't "tell it proudly", but if someone asks my age, I tell them the truth.....I actually am always taken to be 10 years or so younger than I am....it's just a family trait....but wow, does that make me feel great, that I look that much younger than I am....everyone looks a lot younger than they are in my family.
I am 25 right now, so I could care less right now, Maybe that will change in the future, but I highly doubt it.
I've never lied about my age. Most of my life I've looked younger than I am. Until I was almost 40 I often got "carded" if buying alcohol. I am 56, nothing to be ashamed of, or proud of. If you live long enough, you get old.

How to tell your parents you're dating a much older woman or man?When there's a HUGE age gap but it's time to introduce your new boyfriend or girlfriend to your parents. I think you should probably warn them beforehand? Any ideas about this topic?

Why are so many women secretive about their age?

Why? I think that every age has its charm: I want to become old .... (Oh I am 36 years old)

What do you think about a younger woman dating an older man? (or vice versa)I've been dating a man that's 30 and I'm 23. We get a lot of jokes about it but there are also those who are against it simply because of our age difference. Do you think this is justified or does age really matter?
