Would You Want to Know?

Okay, if you are already 90, this question may not apply to you....If there was a way that you could accurately be shown a true picture of what you will look like in old age, (I know, you are only as old as you feel)would you want to see it? Or would you just prefer to slowly ease into it? I am at the age now where I can see some changes coming on, and I personally am glad I don't have that picture. I'll just keep trying to keep up with the maintenance as well as I can. LOL!

Definitely not; it comes gradually, thank god; I do sometimes get surprised at my reflection, and not in a good way. I guess I feel younger inside than out, lol...

I agree that maintenance is key; you want to do what you can to look your best, with what you've got.
It just becomes more work when you're older. I pay more attention to makeup and hair now; also nails. I'm 54 and look my age, not older not younger.

RE: Would You Want to Know?

I've had no option, already seen it. I look like my mother, and she looks like her mother. I'm 46 now, and have a good idea of what I'll look like all the way up to mid-90's.

Overall I'm glad to know what to expect ... although I can't say I'm glad to see the signs of aging appearing on my own face *sigh*

RE: Would You Want to Know?

Oh, heck no! The changes that come with each passing year are horror enough! ;-)
