Q & A

Do you feel it is rude to be asked your age?I believe the only reason these 2 numbers matter is for Social Security and to know about your bodily time  clock being healthy for a baby ...other then that  its irrelevant. It certainly does not define who you are.

    • I agree that my age does not define who I am and it really doesn’t matter if someone asks me my age. It is rude to a point but I don’t let that define the person asking either.

    • Too many times we‘re asked our age for numerous things and I find it irrelevant too. I used to think it was rude, but it doesn’t matter anymore because what’s inside you and what you can do matters not your age.

    • I couldn’t care less if someone asks my age.

      In some ways it does define us.  Our age determines what era we grew up in, what we watched, listened to, ate, etc.

    • Now I am 50, I sometimes voluntarily give it away.  What the heck?

      Back to your question, it depends who ask it? What is the situation?  How is it asked, etc?  And what is the intent behind the asking?

      Sure it does not define who you are but it does give others a very general idea.  Again, it all depends on who is asking and why?

    • Chinadoll- who’s asking MEN. I have begun dating and during a course of conversations men will say so how old are you.  I think its rude to as your age/weight/how much $ you make.  Im in my 40s and would rather ride roller coasters in Magic Mtn then a quiet dinner. I love ALL music curren/past. Im a size 6 so I wear youthful clothes-I just got carded at Cost Plus when buying wine so to me age is sterotyping (what one should/shouldnt do because of 2 numbers)

    • It’s been my experience that men ask because they are absolutely clueless as to how old we are.  And if I were dating, I’d certainly want to know how old the other person is.

    • Good point Tuliplady! I would WANT to know the other persons age. Again not that it defines the person but I seriously would lose all interest in someone10 years younger than me. WHile I may not think or act like an old lady I would want to be with someone who can at least relate to the times I have lived thru..... 80’s for example...had to be there to “get” it.

    • I guess we‘re heathens in this neck of the woods. Both men and women will ask to get a handle on if someone is in the same age group. I definitely would want to know when I’m dating a man because I can go a few years younger, but it does depend on the man and how he views age for hinself and women.

    • I could care less any more...when I was ten years younger it mattered to me a little, now that I am about to be 50, big deal, we all age, it is a fact of life..I accept it!
