I'm 27, and I've never given any real thought to my age. I just lived each day in my own world, distracting myself from the usual worries and whatnot. But these past three years have flown by unimaginably fast, and I've barely taken any memories from them.
I've never thought much of my looks, and didn't consider myself particularly beautiful or ugly. A week ago I began emailing a 21-year old man from a website we both frequent. He's pretty taken to me. We traded face photos of each other-- he's quite cute, and he told me the same about me. I wasn't displeased with the pictures I'd taken of myself, considering how non-photogenic I am, but later on I realized how much I'd changed in appearance from just 4 years ago. I don't know if it's just the mysterious personality change I went through over the past year showing through... or the smile lines at the sides of my mouth (at 27? Is that normal?).
Fear isn't exactly the right word to use. I'm not thrilled at the idea of my appearance changing, but at the same time I like the way people look when they're older. It makes them look more distinguished and adds character. I think it's a time thing, like I described before. You see, I feel really young on the inside. My soul is ten years out of date.
I'm physically six years older than this guy, and thanks to that I keep feeling like... a cougar, maybe. Ha, I don't know.
It's a spirit thing, I think.
Thanks if you read this far...
