Have you ever felt younger or older than your real age?

i was surprised to find the other day, a lady that shared the same views with me. I always feel 10years younger than my real age. She felt in her mind she is 10year younger too. I am not a bit over the moon with it. Alot of people i have met along the years always thought i look younger only to be surprise that i am not! Guess what they give me 10years younger than my real age! even with kids and the rest! This must be the way one think affects his or her total outlook.

Re: Have you ever felt younger or older than your real age?

Look a tad younger, but I feel I'm at least 20 years older.
Especially when I read all the young 20 & 30 somethin's on EF

Re: Have you ever felt younger or older than your real age?

I always get mistaken for younger than I am...it borders on pathological...I promise, I can account for every one of my years...down to my youngest memory which was of somewhere I visited and played at when I was 18 months old...

Drives me nuts now, I'm sure it won't when I am 50...

Yeah, must be boring, you made me chuckle...I want to be old sometimes.

I am terrible at guessing people's age.

We must be married to the same guy

I don't look my age. It's genetic, my dad had to have facial hair his entire adult life to make himself look legal. It's annoying, everytime I buy something to drink I get carded, I just freaked out a Body Shop shop wench when she was touching my hair, advising me on shampoos and talking to me like to a teen, until I answered and she realized from my smirk I was older, I had to show her my permit, haha, she was so shocked and embarrased. It's fun sometimes, but when people give your hubby a dirty look for being a cradle robber, or you for having been knocked up in highschool, it's iriritating. Their imagination does not go so far to realize you are over 30. I also don't appreciate the teens harrassing me in public, rude service people, etc. It is nice though, to put identical skirts and shirts on with my child and run outside without feeling like one is trying too hard to be close to the child and her ways..I think people who are young in spirit also age gracefully. Or maybe they are just airheaded and unstressed. Enjoy it while it lasts, by the time it passes, you will most probably have other worries than biological age.

Age is in the mind and sometimes shows in body!

Re: Have you ever felt younger or older than your real age?

In the grand scheme of things, I feel about the same now as I did when I was 17. The world is still an interesting place with lots to explore and adventures to find, just like it was then.

The main times I "feel" my age is when my gall bladder is acting up - or when I have to remind myself NOT to eat certain foods to help make sure that doesn't happen.

Oh, and being told (last month) by the dermatologist that certain funny freckles are "age related" didn't help too much either.

I don't know. But I'm off out now to ask everyone I see how old they think I am. I could be in for a depressing day.
