At what age have you noticed you've gotten wrinkles on forehead crows feet on eyes or crusty skin any of 3 ? or all 3 I'm asking because I kinda wanna know if your life changed afterwards ?

I’m 41 yet pretty free of wrinkles. Good genes I guess. That said I feel like I’m only getting more attractive the older I get. Actually kinda looking forward to the first grey hairs on the sides, hehe. 

If there’s one thing that I noticed it’s age has nothing to do with how I feel. If anything I’m feeling better with age since I know who I am and what I want and, more importantly, what I don’t want!

Negative thoughts won’t just impact your psychological but also your physical health.

That said, I’m lately thinking about selling my 2-seater sports car (my midlife crisis purchase) because my back hurts when getting out.

You realize arguing in general is a waste of time

Some people unfortunately never grow up

you are under 20

While you still have any amount of the word "teen" in your name you cannot really look at others yet and think they haven't grown up.

Oh, don’t think I’m gonna act like some intellectual filled with wisdom. 

im fine with admitting I’m not. Some people my age still seem to be in the phase where they think they’re hot shit. As young as I am however, I think every age group has a border which separates people who have ‘grown up’ and those who haven’t. For my age group, it’s what I said above. It varies by group, but honestly I think my words still stand. 

I’m not an adult by any means, but I can still see how childish it is to have arguments online (and in general). Does it make someone a child by default? No, of course not

As you grow older again you'll find that sometimes arguments are a thing which needs to happen, sometimes people see a couple having an argument about something and think they're in a bad way... often a couple willing to argue with each other are healthier than those which don't because the ones no longer arguing no longer care that their partner is doing things they see as wrong... they've just grown to expect that and know that if they were to try and argue... it wouldn't change.

No one view is correct in almost any matter, even my above statement puts people who are perfectly happy with their partner in a poor light and is wrong... I've often found myself arguing with me about things I think... and sometimes I come away from those arguments feeling as though I have somehow lost but learned at the same time.

I personally would hate a world where everyone got along and agreed with each other... it would be surreal to me and take away the challenge that is living your life and being unique as a human being.

 

but hey... I could always be wrong :D

I'll be 36 in March and I've just recently been told that I'm 23 years of age. Well holy freaking hell thank you very much!!!

the biggest sign I found was the difference when I complete the sum of Current Year - Year of Birth = X
Each year the answer seems to grow larger and I've not found a method to reverse this process yet.

Age isn't something which particularly matters to me, the main side effects of it are not the impact on me but on others, I'm well aware that it's unlikely I will be over 50 years old and have both or even one of my parents still alive, I'm gravely aware that my brother is both older than me and enjoys recreational drug use, his partner while older again also has a family history of degenerative cognitive defects in later life, with almost 100% of the female members of the family succumbing to them in relative youth, haha, it also reminds me that my cunt/ex wife is 6 years younger than me and will likely live to see a Star Wars movie + Stand alone film which I will not get to experience, unless Karma actually exists and she is consumed by a goat at some stage in her life.

But yeah.... how has my age impacted me? People trust me slightly more now when it comes to repairing PC's than they did when I was a little brat teen that is for sure, now I've got a face which suggests I'll fix it... rather than I'll steal it to download porn.... even though under the face I will still use it to download porn if my own laptop is out of power and something is required!

....

My age also impacts some of the way I refer to things as the previous paragraph should not have the term download in it, that is a throw back to being alive in the 80s/90s when downloading was a thing and the concept of streaming 1080p porn was just a pipe dream of the future... fuck it, I remember downloading porn... pictures...

 

That reminds me that my half-brother and sister had two dead parents before they were even 10 years old.

Sorry to hear about that, but in a way if they were just 10 they probably (for better or worse) didn't get super attached to them, obviously they would have gotten some grief at school for not having both parents but kids always will find something to rib you over. I'm going to be turning 35 this year (I think) and my parents are a rock to my stupid plans, when things go badly there are there to remind me... that I fucked up, but at least I tried kinda thing, help me back on my feet and on towards the next fuck up, I feel when they pass on I will be sad, not just because they're gone but really because I'm not ever sure if they understand how grateful I am to them for my life and I know that if I've failed to convey that by the time they die... my chance will be lost forever to let them know.

When you talk to younger people that dont know what a CD player is. Don't even get me started on cassette tapes lol. Vinyl records is making a random comeback so young kids kind of know what that is.

The problem isn’t disagreeing. If people used arguing as simply exchanging views, the world would be a better place. I’ve ‘argued’ with people many times, but we always stay civil and levelheaded until we reach a resolution

too many people use arguing to be dicks and it annoys me. I get nothing out of people who yell and scream/insult to get to their point, and it’s a waste for both parties’ time. 

if arguments were used to learn and correct each other, then I wouldn’t have a problem. Guess it’s where I get my original post of determining how someone grows up



I started balding when I was 17 and it all disappeared a few years later. I used to stay up all night playing games, but now I can’t stay up past 1 or 2 AM. I used to be very skinny no matter what I ate... now I’m fat. My body aches when I spend too much time sitting, standing, and everything else. Waking up is hard. My hands cramp up at the keyboard after an hour. My eyesight is terrible. I’m older than most basketball and football players. I’m older than most new bands and artists.
