WHATS YOUR AGE

Postby Elba » Fri Dec 24, 2004 12:47 am

Hi friends,

Tell me Why young people worry about age?

At México there is a despective word for woman who don´t get marry, Dixie I think at Spain people use the same word. I don´t know how to say in english. Today a coworker tell me that another woman told her that I´m a ....(that word). I didn´t get ungry because I think that not to be marry at X age is not important. There are things realy important as to fall in love unless once in your live. See the sunrise, help people, be a good friend, love humans, love nature, feel the rain running in your skin. Then the age is only an administrative requirement.

All my life, include when I was a teenager, people boder me with the age. My friends at hig school used to told me that I was older that them, and got funny with my age even if I was a month older. I count my ages by actions, not years, then I should a very old woman, and I happy for that.

Dearest Dixie,

You don´t feel bad for your post. As a woman I´m curosity too. I only wanted to ask that because when I was at your age I never pay atention in the age of the people. All my life I have been in another frequency, as the radio, I have bee different of the another woman, girls, teens. I like to talk with all ec members I learn from you and I supposed that you could learn something good from me. Your a very good friend.

I disagree with you. what do u mean with “match"? let's imagine... what is wrong with a 50-year-old woman with a 16-year-old mind and action? I mean, if a 50-year-old woman keeps a young heart, and she is active at many things, besides, she looks younger than she should be, then she will be very popular and cute. such a person can bring everyone sunshine and vigor.

My aunty is such a woman. almost all people, who know her, love her. even if some people tease her and call her "old girl", but they all admire her and like her.

I don't agree, either. Take my uncle for example. He's 35 now, and he's so childish sometimes. I think that makes him lovable. It's so great to see it playing with his little daughter, making up games for his kids and playing with them all along.

Of course your statement will undoubtedly work for some people, but I don't think that's a general rule for everybody ;)

I agree with you, Dixie!
I think we should never forget the child within us, even when we are 'old'...

what´s your age

Postby Elba » Sun Jan 16, 2005 12:33 am

Frengo, I didn´t understand, could you explain what do you want to say?

Red I´d like to know your aunty
Dixie I think I have mentioned, at home my nephews call me "Uncle baby"

For those who disagree with Dixie, Redrose, Ladybird, etc.
Do you know a woman of 45 that all the mornings wake up at 06:00 am, practice excersice for an hour and a half, return home to give breakfast to her family, do the housework, go to the office, work hard, returne at home at 10:00 pm, see tv or Internet, or listen music, or read, sleep at 12:00pm or 01:00 am and the next day the same and one day in the weekend have time to getfunny, go to dance or similar and think the life is beautifull.
I think this woman -me- is very young, there are lot of young people who only want to died, and the use drugs to get it.

To Elba: I mean that some young people are thinking as if they were old, and some old people do the same on the other side. Perhaps I've summarized too much the concept...

Frengo,
I so agree with you. For instance, my twin brother behaves, as though, he was an old man. At home, my parents always tell him that he should act his age. But I suppose, some people are like that. It depends on the personality of every individual, I guess.
