Happened to me just 3 hours ago.

Perhaps she asked about your age because she thought you were a pervert and was really uneasy with your caricatural approach ?

Exact reaction my eight year old cousin received after saying a similar thing to a girl. Kid also got a nice rub on the head.

You should definitely ask a woman her age. Not only that, but you should also ask to see some I.D. and then make photocopies of it for your records. Women love a man who cares about attention to detail .

Seriously though if you're wondering how old a girl is who looks sort of between 16-25 surely you can get a good idea just by asking what she does for a living. If she goes to school there's your answer, if she works then you ask how long she's been there..."oh right, was that your first job after school then?". I suppose that avoids you having to outright ask their age. Even still, I wouldn't have thought most women would mind being asked their age - they just like the attention. I think the whole "never ask a woman her age" thing is from a bygone era.

Here's a trick. Around Chinese New Year or if dining in a Chinese restaurant. Just start talking about the Chinese calendar and the 12 animals. Women will always blurt out what animal they are because they think it's cute. Do some quick calculating and voila!

It's a weird question to ask regardless of gender.

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it.

That's a good way to find out. Be creative, don't just blurt out that you want to know how old they are. Unless you are the bartendar, of course, then ask for their ID.

seriously if she looks under 25 at all, be careful! You can end up in jail if she's underage, and some girls really do a good job making themselves look grown up. And if you see those TV shows with 4-year olds in beauty pageants, you gotta figure even by the age of 11 some have had a lot of practice wearing makeup, walking in heels and shaking their hips when they walk.

Which is just so scary and sad and wrong.

Yeah the whole beauty pageant thing is so wrong. I think girls wearing makeup at school is wrong too tbh.

I don't understand this whole cultural thing where kids are desperate to grow up fast. If only they knew that in five or ten years they'd be wishing they were a kid again!

Johnny, you can try the "Hey, look at my ID pic, can I see yours?". That way you'll know if she's underage.
