    I didn't get into music until about 17, started wearing makeup at 18/19 ... I only just discovered anime last year.


    I look much younger, which doesn't help. Last month I went to a gig and pulled a really cute guy, knowing full well that he was at least 4-5 years younger than me. When I was 16 I would have never pulled that guy so easily. The 16-year-old me would have stood in the corner all shy and self-conscious, avoiding his glance. It's like I'm reliving my teen years with hindsight. I go to gigs and everyone assumes I'm just your average teenager.

    I am the confident, popular teenager I never could be.

    My friends compare me to Helena Bonham Carter, Hayley Williams, Avril Lavigne ... but these are all people who are quirky/weird as part of their career. I am never going to be taken seriously in any mainstream 'average joe' job if I continue like this. At the same time I feel like this is what makes me ME and I don't want to lose this part of me for the sake of 'fitting in'.

    Wait, your profile says you're male...

    Sounds like me in a way. But, I have lived a very very sheltered life.

    I am turning 23 this year and I still feel/act like I am 15.

    I've always been a late maturer - I didn't get into music until about 17, started wearing makeup at 18/19 ... I only just discovered anime last year.

    Most people grow out of this stuff by their 20s, right? And I'm only just discovering it all. :confused:

    I started going through a rebellious/depressive emo phase when I was 17/18, where I got piercings and dyed my hair strange colours. I always thought I would grow out of it. But even though I dress/look more 'mainstream' now, I never truly did.

    I listen to all sorts of music, including latest pop/chart stuff. But I still enjoy bands that target teen audiences: My Chemical Romance, Brand New, Panic at the Disco, Blink 182 ... etc.

    What? :lolwut: You are the person you could never be?

    This whole post is just one big contradictory, gender-confused, mind-f***. :cry:

    nobody really "fits in" everyone is different and quirky. Everyone has different habits that others may find weird.

    The guys in MCR are mid 30's and they're still writing that stuff.

    Can't see any harm in it at all.

    You've changed it.

    And it doesn't matter what people think. A lot of older people enjoy anime...

    I mean ... it's like I'm reliving my teen years in my 20s.
    So, you feel like you're a teenager now rather then a young adult?

    If its any consolation:

    It's not really a big deal that your music taste hasnt changed and you like anime. my brother is 22 and he still plays video games, reads comics and play with warhammer. Im 19, i read comics and play video games. it's no big deal. my university lecturer is 40 odd is a successfull graphic designer with a family and he still reads comics.

    It isn't a problem unless you think of yourself as better than other people because of it, or you begin shoving it down people's throats.

    Otherwise, it's all gravy.
