I know that we are all amazingly beautiful/handsome, intelligent and ever so thoughtful. We are blessed. WE know that but do people tell you that you look older or younger than what they would expect? Or do they tell you that you look like a relative or someone who's famous?? Not that we need anyone to confirm our good looks rolleyes eyes ...but what do others tell you?

about the only comment I get is that I don't look my age. I have very few gray hairs and what's there is camouflaged by a very light frost job. I've never smoked or spent lots of time tanning so my skins is in pretty good shape. But I do like when people think my grandkids are my REAL And the youthful comments don't hurt my feelings any either. If they only knew how I FELT! talk of misery in the Koffee Klatch. smhair smilewinkgrin

I am sort of goofy looking......I look just like my dad (but without the beard lol).  My mom, of course (sigh), is a classic beauty.  I wish so much I looked like her.  Alas, I look like my dad. I am blessed with my dad's wonderful, laid back personality.  We are so much alike.  Everyone tells me I look like my dad.

Everyone that remembers my mom says I look just like her. And my eldest daughter looks like me and her one daughter looks like me.

As for age, yeah, I look my age. I am overweight, so that doesn't help. But, I dye my hair so no clues there except when the grays grow out hehehehe!!!

Believe in yourself.  Be kind to fellow humans and animals.  Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help.  I will be there.

I was once told I looked like Cindi Lauper...Wish I had her millions then, hehehe...
and no I don't look or sound my age, and it can be against me when I go to the doctor's
as they do a double take of me and then my file....and to this day everyone says I look like
my daughter's sister more than her Mother... and it really hurt once when, my
daughter was having open heart surgery and all the nurses were asking my mother questions
cause they didn't think I was her mother...I've looked 17 for about 20 years, I now look like I'm 25 and
I'm so much older....
Sometimes I like looking young, but most times it's annoying, as my opinions don't mean anything, but
here sometimes my opinions matter............
