Do you look your Age?
May 20, 2017 7:44am CST
I don't mind getting old. I don't mind if somebody will tell me that I am old already. That's a fact. I am 43 years old already. Everyone will grow old, just so happen I went ahead of y'all. . Blame my height. . There are just some people who does not look their age. Some may be young by age but looks older. Some are in their mid-30's or 40's or up but still young looking. Kudos to you guys if you belong to the latter.

All are eager to stop their aging if you say I don't mind. Teenager specially looks at mirror every day. But after youth it is very less people who are worried about their age. We are not a person to stay eternally here. So welcome our age and our responsibilities is good one.
I have three questions: 1) If you call yourself old at the age of 43, what will you call yourself when you are, say, 70? 2) Why 'kudos' to people who look younger than they are? What is there to 'kudo' about if we can't influence the process? 3) What does height have to do with age? Obviously, this is a funny remark. I don't get it.
Hi @M.-L. is my post offensive? My apology. I don't mean anything offensive here. 1. Here in our Country, it is normal to use someone's age as a joke. Though some people prolly might think Age is not something you can use as a joke regardless here in our Country or others. Some are sensitive and does not want to talk about their age. As I always say @M.-L. " Age is just a number". It is how you feel regardless you are already 100 y/o. 2. These people aged well. They must have done something not to look their age. Prolly a happy disposition in life, good diet, no vices. So Congrats to them if they aged well, not looking old and looking young. They must have worked hard to make their look young looking. 3. Here if you are petite, they look at you like you are a kid because you are small.
We'd look older if we take life too seriously. When I was a teen they thought I was already at 20's (too serious with my studies and church blah). When I was at late 30's they thought I was still at 20's (easy going). I hope I look 20's forever

A long as I'm still a single, Yes, I do look my age. But I think I'll stop worrying my age after my marriage. This thing is common in our country, Indonesia. In our country, it's really important to get married at an ideal age, instead of too late to get married. "Would you marry me?" That's a sweet sentence that I will ask my girlfriend in the near future.

I definitely look my age. I'm 63 and smoked for 40 years but I do notice that since I quit last October I don't have as many wrinkles as I did in my face. I don't dye my hair and I don't spend hundreds on anti-aging creams and treatments. I'm fine with looking my age or even older. I'm just surprised I've made it this far, as wild as I was in my younger days!
