Just finished reading an article online about how people evaluate their looks with respect to their age. I'm wondering if CSers will confirm or deny the conclusion of that article.

I'd choose #1.

Well, I choose #2. People say I don't look old enough to join the Medicare brigade. I hope it's true.

Indeed. thumbs up

But 37 is so young that unless you've abused yourself your going to look good. The real test, I suspect, comes several years later...dunno wave

It's good to see some people have the guts to publicly proclaim their opinion. Of course, Heart-Lease, in your case that really doesn't require much courage.wave laugh hug

does that count for anything at all? i mean they way u look outside, age is a myth...you are what and who you are inside... but does others see you the same way u see yourself? rarely the immage that you see of yourself in your mid mirrow reflects what others see.....and it's a shame sometimes.....

Well, that's part of the point of the poll. It's about separating our internal reality - the image we have of ourselves - from a more objective reality.

I've had the same feeling - glimpsing my reflection in a passing mirror or window and thinking: WTF? What happened to that thirty year old guy I was so sure I still am?

dunno wave laugh

One of the blessings of getting older - not being able to see yourself and others quite so clearly. Unfortunately, my eyesight's still 20/15.mumbling moping laugh
