Oh, yes, the settled sdown with kids speech. I get that so often I could about kill the next person who starts in on that. I'm starting to develop a twitch. People assume I'm a kid who will be looking forward to marrying and having kids. Uh, no, no I'm not. I plan to have my uterus removed as soon as I can find a doctor willing to do it. At 34, it's a pretty safe bet that there shall be no kids. I almost married once. And I'm so relieved that it didn't work out. I don't even touch babies more than once in a day if I can possibly help it. I'd much rather go bungee jumping. And I'm deathly afraid of heights.
Well at least you never have to worry about anyone mistaking you for someone that's not completely abrasive.

I have the same problem. Do you know how hard it is for a 19 year old to get a fake ID when I look like I'm 14? Practically impossible. You can't put anything past those liquor store clerks.

We see eye to eye on this one, Devlin.

Until around 21 or 22, I would have passed for a few years younger.

Sadly those days are long gone. Thanks tobacco!

Well, you probably have a point here and yes it is a bit unfair.

That might be the image but isn't necessarily true in reality.

Tell me about it!

Now I ought to clarify that the trend in my teen years of looking older than my age didn't stick through adulthood.

I love long, natural hair. PLEASE don't chop off your hair and dye it when you get older. I adore women with some gray or white in the their hair.
And, if you are rocking a long grayish/white braid in your late-40s to 60s?

This is one of the few agreements I have made with my wife. Keep your hair long and natural. (I'll even wash it for you occasionally.)

That's all. I hope that's not too creepy.
yeah Kramwest, a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time ago we saw this elderly lady, prob in her 90s, with long (just past her shoulders) natural grey hair in a plait, she looked so beautiful/elegant.

A LOT of women past 40 chop their hair, apparantly, prob when menopause/middle-age happens they do it, or rather, a lot of guys comment that long hair on older woman looks wrong. like the women are too old for it.............I say that is purest bollox of the highest degree!

Ya FG, it IS a point. however if the girl is single and pretty occupied with a skill, whatever, if she shows her confidence, she is accepted.

take Lady Jules for example, still B-Girl at 33 (ish), maybe even 34 - most people would say thats for teens and younger........I think she is awesome.

haha, truth is I missed out on so much in my younger years theres things I wanna do now, like RBing for fun.



but no matter what, I will always envy guys.

kramwest1: Heh. Nice to know you like long hair on women. I have no plans to dye my hair once it turns gray. As far as letting it grow out? No. Long hair is work for me. I've had it long and hated it as a child. Combing? Please. My mother had to tie me down. I'm good with a nice, comb-free buzz cut, thank you very much.

no spoken words... Who, me? I'm the epitome of gentleness and politically correct speech.









Rather like Johnny Weir does not like pink tassels.

I love my hair long and natural. For years, I often opted for more sophisticated, shorter cuts to attempt to look older, but I finally decided that I prefer my hair long. It just doesn't matter to me as much anymore how others percieve me.

I'll see you in two months you little shit.

And, no, that's NOT the way to speak to a lady, but, look around....not too many ladies up in this bitch, except for Uberbeaver the sad, mincing, effeminate clown.

I think in general it's still easier for men when they get older. There are always exceptions and thankfully not all people value people just for looks and "youth". But for relationships and forget about that..just being valued and appreciated and considered attractive. Just how I see it. But much of it also depends upon how you see yourself, and you can't let other people f with that-as hard as it is sometimes. So maybe that holds true for being seen as "too young looking" too.

When you're really young you have no idea how fast time goes by-so savor it and appreciate it.
