I’m just only 19 but everyone in my friendship group is 20 now and I’m still a teenager. I am a late birthday and especially me get judged by older people. I just have a soft spot for a woman who’s in her late 30s but I just can’t see her because I am too young for her. I went to America and my uncle with everyone was going out for a drink with everyone then my parents said I won’t get in since the age is 21 to drink.

I just have been the young kid in my school and I got sick of it. My college had a party before I turned 18 and I again couldn’t go because I was 17. When I was 16 I was the last one to learn to drive do by the time I started everyone passed. I just like girls older, I just find them more attractive but I can’t have them because I am too young and I am sick of my age being a barrier to everything.



I just want to live adults life. I used to go out to car convoys with middle aged men when I was 14 and people used to judge me for it including teachers. I have been less self conscious about it since I turned 18 but still am. I thought when I turned 18 the world will be mine but it turns out it’s not.

I just kind of wish I was born in the 1900s because things was better like, it was easier to get a job then, cars were better then, house prices were much cheaper then for example a 3 bed house then you could get for 25k but now a decent 3 bed is 200k at least and that’s pushing it. I also have cousins who are in their 40s and my parents had us quite late so their siblings had their kids earlier so they are older.

Honestly there is nothing you should be worrying about.
🙂

My friend is the only person in the year who is 19 and the others are 18.

Age has no limit to stopping do /want something.

It’s just like the 1900s were so much better like the 1970s or 80s because then you had loads of xr3is, sierras, xr2s cozy’s and what have we just have things like zafiras and ****ing Nissan jukes now

When diseases such as Polio, Tetanus and others where still commonplace. Where women and most men did not have the vote. Where men who worked did so six days a week.

Though Jacob Rees-Mogg would think that too modern.

12 years after Jack the Ripper. Poverty, famine and the wars. Poor living conditions and diseases everywhere. Women treated badly. Need I continue?

But, it has. Women and equality - that's not changed? Sure, there may be discrepancies, with gender pay, however it's not as bad as it used to be.

When people worry about **** like this, it just tells me they live a nice, spoilt, stress-free life.

Think of it this way, you are from amongst that group of 19 year old who have done more than the 19 year olds born in the latter months of the year.

Yeah, because 1900s were so much better with two world wars, incredible poverty, holocaust and other genocides, black people still officialy considered unequal, spanish flu, no antibiotics till 1928, woman not being able to vote and to have proper education, holodomor (famine in Ukraine), cold war, and honestly i could go on for ages into specific genocides, wars, conflicts etc.

Sounds like you are a man... Yes, there is lot of domestic violence. But there are support systems for women who want to get out of abusive relationship. We can vote, we can study wherever we want, we are not expected to marry at 20, we can choose who we want to marry, we are not expected to birth 4 children before we even reach 27. We are not expected to put up with everything. Yes, it is still not ideal, but i see a big shift in a good direction.
