This is one of the beautiful, famous sights in Indonesia. The sawah: Terrace rice fields. Carefully crafted terraces to keep the water where it is and to make most of the available land. I think if you visit Indonesia, then you should at least have seen these sawah. Some are more beautiful than others.
The age and its loves
Summarizing last past: I’m 24, but people say they think I’m around 18. I know, I know, looking young has a positive side. People are looking for that magic potion to look young and stay that way, so why should I complain? And I usually don’t really care either. Except for one thing. When people discover I’m 6 years older than they thought I was, they usually yelp in surprise. Now, this in itself is not really a problem. But let’s make this issue more specific. I’ll start with an introduction.
I often am very dreamy about love, and still believe it’s something magical and all that, for most part. Like how love crosses all boundaries and stuff. Like age. I have asked people what they thought about love and age, and they will always say that age doesn’t matter. And when you’re reading this, I’m sure you agree with this. Age doesn’t matter when it comes to love.
But when I ask if it’s okay to have 5, 6 or more years age difference, they answer “no way!” Okay, so not everyone answers this, but on average, most people say they’re against it. So that’s just weird. First they say age doesn’t matter, then they are against it.
So now back.
I’m 24. So it would be normal (whatever that is) if I had a girlfriend who would be maybe 2-3 years younger than me. But if I were a girl, I’m not sure if I would want a boyfriend that looked that kiddy. But here I am, looking like an 18 year old. In physique, would it be normal to have a girlfriend that’s like 16 years old? Does this still make sense? In this case, I/we’d be really looked upon, assuming she wouldn’t yelp eep too, knowing my age (if I were a girl, would I want an “oldie?”).
So I guess these reasons could make me very picky. I keep having flashes of thoughts in my mind, telling me to look for a girl who’s a few years younger than me, but also looks very young herself. Although I know I shouldn’t be limiting myself like this.
Anyway, when I was hanging out with Nana in Indonesia, she told me that it’s only natural that there are one or two girls out there with a crush on me. It kind felt like she told it like it was a fact, and not solely to comfort me. And even if I can’t really imagine someone having a crush on me, I like the idea 🙂 And it was comforting indeed :).
Reactions. jen jen: Yeah, it’s a typical Indonesia picture. irene: Oops, corrected. Nana: Thanks for bringing this fact to my attention. I wonder if it’s scientifically provable. Tiffany: May your wish come true… Hikari: Thanks for your comment and insight. An: “Wisdom comes only with age”… true, true. Michelle: You’re absolutely right. Sometimes I do feel like I’m limiting and restraining myself. And having a negative images of oneself is only negative for yourself. But hey, we’re only human, right? Diana: There’s a lot of cases in my family where “she” is older than “him,” so I’m not worried about that.
