I have a youthful looking appearance. I could pass for a 35 year old - I am 46.

The thing is - is that I feel as if I am 60 years old.

this makes it hard because when a young woman makes a pass at me, I just think - I am way too old.

What can I do to??

i know, just enjoy life, i don't think you can reverse it that much i try exercising and eating healthy i still feel old and feel like you know crap no matter what i try vitamins and supplements, i think you can't change the age process no matter what you do, do think as this as bad sign, its naturally, just eat junk food and candy and burgers and fries. this is what i do most of the time and eating generally healthy but it sucks, i like eating junkfood and candy why can't these be healthy for you never understood body biology its weird.

@LORD BURT, I am in my fifties and if my mental health keeps on improving as it has done over the past few months then I figure I have got a few more adventures in me yet, oh yeah I only look early 40s so I know what you mean about appearances. :).

I was completely bat shit crazy last mate when I retried Rispperidone, I have become completely resistant to it, despite it working for 10 years. This low dose of Haloperidol apears to be doing the trick with very few side effects atm. I've lived with Schizophrenia for 25 years mate and it's brought me down a few times and nearky killed me twice but as Nieztche said that which does not kill me makes me stronger. Finding Buddhism got me through the worst parts of the last 10 abd 1/2 years but yeah I have nearly done myself some serious damage to myself a couple of times still during that period.

I'll post some when your a bit more stable since you've just changed meds, while the Royal College of Psychiatrist's here in the UK do say that meditation is helpful it can destabilise you further practicing while your unwell.

Mental health issues can make us feel older and very tired and worn out. It's all those thoughts that wear us out. In my opinion age is no barrier to finding love, no matter what your appearance because you love someone's heart and soul thats what makes a good relationship I've found. Hope this helps 🙂 good luck

I have a baby face as well. Younger women have too much energy for me and are looking for something different than I am. I’m 45.

I spent 9 years with a woman 9 years older than me. Lots of times I would be called her son. I laughed it off. It bothered her a little.

I would be happy with an older woman but I don’t think they take me seriously because I look young. And I wonder if they don’t want to risk embarrassment by looking so much older than me.
