Have you ever asked this question to a lady. Why is it wrong to ask a lady this question. Afterall age increases for both men and women. What is your opinion about this question not being asked to a women.

We should not ask womens age and mens wage, as we will not get the correct answer from both.

At my age they still tell you because it's young. I guess girls are still sensitive about their appearence at older ages.

that might be one of the main reason women dont like people asking them this question.

Well I am a woman and I do not care if someone asks my age . I am always proud to tell people that I am 47 years old. I do know that some woman are offended by this question and if they do answer it , it will probably be a lie. I am not one of them!!!

Well I work at a Pool and fitness center, and a day pass or membership fee is determined by someones age. I have to ask age all the time, some people may not like it but it has to be done! I've actually had women throw fits because they didn't want to reveal it. I don't really see anything wrong with it, people age. Men age as well as women, so whats the big deal? I know a lot of women don't like it but I have a feeling it will never really bug me.

Of course I've asked other women their age - it doesn't bother me when people ask mine so why not? The one thing I never do though is get drawn into the whole "guess how old I am" thing. I never attempt to guess someone else's age because I always get it wrong!

it is a funny discussion,and i do not think it is suitable and polite to ask others age,especially to ask a lady who seems as not be young yet.

I don't mind people asking about my age. Because sometimes you can't tell people only by looking at their appereance. Some teenager are good with dressing up and make up and that makes them look older than their real age. I'm quite "petite" for my age and most of the time I wear just casual dress with no make up at all. Once, I walked in this candy shop with my daughter and my husband (he's quite tall). And the worker there gave one free candy to my daughter and asked my husband if her older sister (he meant me) want one too. I said and laughed....yeah, why not. My husband and I had a really good laughed. And I thanked him for flattering me about my daughter and I are sisters.

hehe i´m 30. but i´m a man. no i think that wouldn´t be the first question i would ask for. hehe, maybe the second. that´s not very interesting for me, i don´t need to know, cause it´s not important for me how old the lady is. my last girlfriend was one year older than me. but that was no problem i think.
