at 32 was the last time I was asked for an ID

Interesting the character from Torchwood has the same first name as you.
We are both Welsh. In my case it is a nickname because Ifan (meaning young) is not apt for an old codger.
Most of my life I've been pretty tame and I'm good with that but being told I'm supposed to be age appropriate would bug the heck out of me. What am I supposed to be doing?
I prefer to be going to concerts. https://youtu.be/ASRimdBcGl0
@sejla Why aren't you at the front?
@October808 More expensive and I leave the front for fanning younger women. I'm not sure if they'd appreciate an old woman at the front. My friend I go to concerts with is 33 so maybe I could pass. I'm a bit self conscious too. I borrowed that video. I mostly did one song recordings at that concert. Some of the best singing I've heard in a long time.
@sejla I'm always at the front at concerts. The connection with the band is different from at the back of a room. I've tried both experiences in the past. Usually celebrities can be seen by the soundboard but they don't usually buy their ticket, it's complimentary.
@October808 I'm sure they would see it as a compliment but at Korean music concerts the air if filled with young women screaming out randomly I love you and with some groups there is massive fan service like removing or lifting parts of clothing or sort of hip thrusting while they are dancing so I'd be a bit embarrassed since they are not much older than my own child plus those tickets go for over $200 dollars most of the time.
@sejla Holy, $200. I've never spent more than 85.00 for GA tickets. And that was to see No Doubt. So I guess you have scalping there too?
@October808 Oh with online scalping the prices can get up to $1,000 for some groups. $85 usually gets you toward the back of the venue. Some concerts nose bleed section. I think the most I've paid is $125 but I've know people to pay up to $500 but mostly $300. With those prices sometimes you get what they call hi touch where you get a few seconds to walk down a line and high five all the groups singers in a line. Maybe get a brief comment in if you are lucky.
@sejla Ah, I usually just hang out at the servicve entrance after on the off chance I might see a musician or 2. Sometimes they come out to say hello.
@October808 ah that could happen. At some of these concerts there is a lot of security for the artists. For the BTS concert in Fort Worth they had extra police security since one of the members got a death threat and they flew in on a private plane instead of commercial. Death threats and the like isn't unusual unfortunately.
And good genes!Pass them on.
I think it affects me dating lol. Most guys will stare but never approach me and others will stare and I can see them contemplating on if they should approach me and when they do the first thing they say when I tell them my age is “I was scared to talk to you. You look like a little girl.” So I take it as a good thing I guess but at the same time it’s like I’ll always just be the cute young looking girl rather than sexy lol.
I used have 30 year old men approach me in bars when I was 18 but I looked younger than that. I guess it depends on the club. I guess men were less worried back then.
That happens to me too, I have found that it can help if you have something that only adults can have to show that you are an adult, for example, I've found that if I don't shave, my facial hair (what little I have) makes it clear that I am over 18, I'm not sure what the female equivalent would be though...
I went from more feminine flowing flowering dresses that were in during the early 90s to more solid colors like black, white, red, royal blue. Things like sundresses would really make me look younger.
That sounds like a good idea, fashion can communicate certain things like that as well.
Exactly what I was going to say.
