I'm 20 years old. I'm a third-year college student. I know I'm young and I'm still learning. It just really bothers me how older adults (25+) immediately dismiss me and my ideas for being younger. I have this problem with dating too. Older men seem to ignore me for being young. Sometimes I wish I was older. What are your thoughts?

My thoughts are fuck them, and do you. Meaning, why do you desire the respect of others who obviously don't care about it eh? You don't need them to accept you OP. Accept yourself, you're a third year college student young and learning while they are older and still learning oooo what's the difference? Age and that's it lol don't let their narcist attitude get to you. :) Live your life while your STILL young.1

This is going to happen to you a lot! It even kept me out of jobs for a while. Adults will always hold this stigma no matter how much you work to prove yourself. The most I did was dress "older" and behave more conservative around older adults. I also separated myself from other youths in the workplace or during internships. That of course means isolating yourself but if your goal is career related, it should pay off. Good luck!1
