Looks can be deceptive, but looking good is never a bad idea, because the way a person looks says a lot about them (my opinion tho). I’m someone who believes a lot in staying fit and looking good.

Last week, I was discussing with a friend while she was making smoothie (btw, I’m a huge fan of smoothies). So while we were discussing, I told her I would like to lose weight just a lil bit. I also mentioned my fear of gaining weight (irrational, because I’m far from being fat lol). She looked at me and said if I become slimmer it might be hard for me to settle down, because I’m already petite and look younger than my age. She went further to add that guys will think I’m too young (not saying I’m old tho lol) and haven’t reached marriagable age, so they will not want to ask me to marry them.
When she said this, I smiled because I know it’s not true. Relationship is a process, you don’t just meet someone and ask them to marry you. You get to know each other first, and you guys will definitely talk about your age. There’s no way you will get involved with someone without discussing age, unless they decide to lie about it.

But seriously LHers, do you think if someone looks younger than their age, people might think they are not old enough for marriage?

    My opinion!

    I think people sometime look younger than their age. Sometimes it cool but could deny you some stuffs in a group 👬 of “g$nerals”. It only valuable in social scene but otherwise…..

    Beside lilieshaven if your pics is current then…. Sealed lips.



  2. To answer ur question, i would say “yes”, but only when u engage such persons in a conversation u come 2 realize that they are older than they actually look.But sometimes we dnt get to dt point; I’m talking general now, not just concerning marriage issue

    I don’t think it does sha, for me I look younger than my age and I still get attention of people older, so I think it’s d way one carries their self. Although some people get to disrespect u at times.

    Looking younger than your age is way more advantageous especially if you have money.. I mean rich. When you are rich and you look younger, it attracts all kinds of people to you. You get to meet and tend to blend in with people of all ages. But when you are not well to do and have a baby look, people tend to disrespect you a lot. Taking you for a kid.
