I need to rant about this before my head explodes, because it's driving me up the wall. I had a... lets say less than ideal childhood, I grew up fast, I left home early, I've busted my ass ever since to make a life for myself and be taken seriously by people who are at my level-who are, inevitably, a decent bit older. I have to constantly be proving my maturity, as at a subconscious level no one seems to be able to take me seriously for where I am mentally, instead of how many birthdays I've had.
That's not where a person's age should be counted from, for anything that counts and isn't a purely physical concern. A person's mental and emotional age stems from what has happened in one's life and how they handled it.
So why the FUCK do people who are otherwise intelligent and sensible and fun to hang around use it as some totally arbitrary restriction? 'Sorry, I can't date you because you're younger than my youngest brother'
And then she fricken turns around and flirts with me constantly, even telling me when I start going out with the new guy (who was, admittedly, a bad idea), that if I stay with him I'll lose any chance with her. She flirts, she flirts, yet remains aloof and confusing enough to keep my head spinning!
Sorry, off topic. The point was, that I'm sick of people treating me like the worst stereotype of my age, when they know me better than that!
