crustyoldbee :  Yes, sunscreen is a must. I have 100 SPF on right now. My mother has spent years playing golf, but even with sunscreen it’s taken a toll on her skin recently. But she’s almost 80 so I’m glad she still loves to play. My sister loves to talk about how she was carded in her 40s and she’s currently dating a 29 year old. Her boyfriend before that was in his 20s. She’s in her early 50s. But I haven’t been carded since I was 37 and I wouldn’t date someone in his 20s if you paid me.

Some people seem pretty upset that a lot reponders replied that they also look young to a thread that specifically directed the question at people that also look young haha. 

All threads on here are going to be skewed because we respond to things we relate to or like to talk about. If we were all forced to reply to every thread it might be more accurate, but that would be weird and boring.

I look young, but I only have a BA and live in a rented one bedroom apartment. But I’m not generally going to chime in on questions about mortgages and houses just to say, “I have no house! How do you mortgage?” Tis just the nature of the interweb.

Contrary to popular belief, I feel like most people look the age that they actually are. Sure, people may sometimes say we look younger to flatter or compliment us, but most of us really do look our ages. I’m 26 and I look like I’m in my mid-20s, so I don’t always get carded when I buy alcohol.

With the exception of those of us who are noticeably short (I’m 5’2 and don’t really consider myself short), we usually all look our ages. All we can do to make sure we look our best is to take care of ourselves to a normal standard.

I don’t mean to be the bearer of bad news lmao

Not sure about me, but my Dh looks about 12 when he shaves his beard.

socalgirl1689 : Hey, you forgot that the men most bees date are perfect in every way, because at the slightest hint of the mildest off color comment, they would simply leave. 😉

socalgirl1689 :  So….I’m actually kind of ashamed to admit this.. but I mean, my husband drinks the occasional Coke Zero and I’m wondering if I should have my divorce lawyer on speed dial?

keikochan :  it normally only annoys me off it affects what I want to do. Recently I was on my way back from work after a stressful day and really fancied a G&T so I picked up a bottle of gin and some snacks for Darling Husband and me. Went to the counter and got ID’d. I took it well but I don’t carry ID so no gin for me. The lady did point out it was “challenge 21” to which I replied “oh, I understand, it’s just that I’m 30 next year”. Then I watched a look of horror wash over her face. She was doing her job. I can’t complain. But I did feel bad for her. A few years ago when Darling Husband was 32 he got ID’d and the doorman apologised when he saw his age. That was funny.

YES!!! Drop immediately what you’re doing. Go call your divorce lawyer NOW. Drinking Coke Zero is a MAJOR RED FLAG!!!

socalgirl1689 :   techmom :  lol ok enjoying the thread because of your silliness but please make sure not to dismiss or ridicule bees on here who have told/tell people to leave their partners here. Does it happen often? Yes. Why? Because people who make posts about “should I or shouldnt I leave him/her” posts are quite often in distress, in abusive relationships, toxic situations, unhappy for a long time. Let’s not compare it to someone drinking coke zero. It’s belittling to the posters and responders. 

But you guys are really funny otherwise.

lifeisbeeutiful :  My flippancy is reserved only for occasions that warrant it, such as these common weddingbee cliches.

But your point is well taken. I often join the chorus of those urging someone to leave when it’s evident that staying will be toxic or fatal. Sadly, that happens more often than I’d like.

lifeisbeeutiful :  Well said. I’m all for having fun but I’m also a Bee who has numerous times advised an OP to consider ending the relationship because, sadly, there are many threads on this site started by Bees who are being treated poorly. It’s not a go-to response for trivial reasons.

Part Asian genes also. I think it’s my plump cheeks and lack of wrinkles

Another Asian here – and a bit of extra padding seems to help? As well as the fact that I have very bad skin, don’t wear make-up, and hang-out with teenagers six days a week…. (I am 30, but the guesses range from 22 – 25 most of the time, so it isn’t thaaaaaat much younger I guess)
