IF,I were to call,it would be to your poor,suffering wife to give her my
full sympathy for her marriage choice.
I have to ask this... are we off topic here? Isn't this thread about a guy
turning 23?

We're just showing him what happens as you get older, you start to forget things like topics and putting on pants.

Mama only wears pants to work and it's skirts the rest of the time!
So,you forget how to put on your pants? You're in worse shape than
I thought.

I tell people I forgot.

Sometimes they believe me.

23 and already regretting it? What are they teaching kids in school these days. I'm sixty two...The young try to torture me by calling to wish me a happy birthday. I only want a birthday every ten years now. Time flies so fast nowadays that it will be like the once a year event when I was young.

I know how you feel.

I've hated my birthdays for a loooong time. I don't celebrate, I don't want gifts, cakes, anything special, and if it falls on a weekday, I will not tell anyone at work. I just want to be left alone, and swim in red wine.

"We might be through with the past, but the past ain't through with us."

Happy Birthday.

Go get drunk.

Oh, for God's sake stop with the pity party. After age 12 birthdays don't mean crap. No presents for you. Get over it and ilve your life.

It may be cliched but it's a cryn shame that youth is squandered on the young.

Is 16 the age where your sent off into the forest to track, kill and eat a walrus before being accepted into the tribe?

Have you ever heard of Life Coaches?

They help people who are at certain stages or 'cross roads' of life figure out 'where' they want to 'go' and what sorts of goals to set in order to get 'there'...

Here's a link - it's just the first one that came up on Google, so I'm not 'advocating' for this company in particular - just thought it might be helpful way for you to get a better idea of what's involved...

Life Coach

If you do a search on "Life Coaches" in your area, you may be able to find someone local...

Good luck!

Happy Birthday! I am 37 but feel 20. Don't worry about it. You'll get another body.

I know it sounds weird but I also feel mortal. Like one minute I'm 22 the next minute I'm 50 or something.

20s was just an anxiety attack for me, soo much with the initial grunt work
30s was good. settled into a good pattern, I took care of my looks in my 20s,so looked the same really
I am in my 40s now, still got the looks, still going out and dating (currently dating a 26 year old...why? because tbh, the 22 year old that was after me was just a bit too wild).
Got a solid grasp on who I am (finally).

Most people simply worry about age in regards to the body breaking down.
Simple answer is then take care of yourself, the earlier you start, the better off you will be
cardio, moisturize and exfoliate, eat well (but don't forego the weekend cheeseburger thing), only drink on weekends and dont overdo it as the norm, try to avoid the sun in long intervals and you will keep your looks and health well into your 50s.

23 is not the time to be even remotely concerned about age...hell, 33 isnt...live in the moment, but plan on the future.

Pfffft! What I wouldn't do to be turning 23 again!! I'll be turning 56 on Sunday. I'm just surprised I've made it this long without killing somebody or having something really horrible happen to me. Knock on wood.

Someday you'll look back and realize that 23 is just a baby, and your life is only beginning. Each day is a gift. Be thankful for it.
