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 :-)
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.
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 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 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 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.
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.
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'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.
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...
