Why do some people think it is okay to make rude remarks when someone looks young for their age ?
For example yes i am an adult and i look young for my age. I am 31 and do look at least 10 years younger no matter how much I dress like an adult. It is genetic.
I don’t see anything wrong with someone telling me I look young for my age but I find it really rude when people make comments like “you look like a child ” or “you look like a baby” or “you don’t look old enough to be married ”
Am I over reacting? I don’t think anyone over the age of 10 wants to be referred to as looking like a child, so why do people make these type of comments.
One reason why I think it is just downright rude is because if I was their manager/director they would never make a comment like that. Which mean it has to be rude. Am I over-reacting?
