MMMMonday! Personal assumptions.



Each Monday, we bring you special, maintainer-curated content intended to enrich your VP experience. Please note that you can find past MMMMonday posts using the mmmmonday tag.

Also, a quick reminder about the other places you can find VP: vp_bulletins for local announcements; contact_vp for questions and feedback on the way VP is run; the Vulvapedia for basic questions; and don't forget about our sibling community over on Dreamwidth! We're also on Tumblr, Facebook, and Twitter!

Today, in the spirit of (and inspired by) Shakesville's questions of the day: What are some erroneous assumptions people make about you? Why do you think the assumptions are made? Do they bother you? Are those assumptions ever an asset? We'd just like to get some discussion going in comments, so if you're moved to, hop on in!

People very often assume that I'm a student and/or five years younger than I actually am. It does bother me, intensely, because it results in patronizing behaviour -- sometimes from people who are younger than I am. It makes me feel like the way I carry myself, the way I look and the way I approach the world aren't 'adult' enough. I've been told that I'll appreciate this later, but I'm not sure that's true. My mother still has brown hair at age 62 and it hasn't been a blessing for her.

I get the "look younger" thing too. I was a high school teacher and the father of one of my students told me he thought I was also a student. In front of his teenaged daughter. That was. . . over a decade ago and I still get disbelief that I'm my age. I've finally stopped getting offered children's menus in restaurants, at least.

I'm 37 and haven't started appreciating it yet. I've considered dying my hair grey, but I figured, if I wouldn't dye my grey hair brown, it would be hypocritical of me to dye my brown hair grey.

Hi everyone! Dr Unity is the best spell caster to help fix your broken relationship or get your Ex-Lover back fast,Read my testimony and contact him now:Unityspelltemple@gmail.com.
My ex and i had been to gether for 3 years. We both are mature adult (i'm 33 and he is 44). I broke up with him at the end of January because of the constant quarrels and unmet emotional need. Not long after, he found out that during the period, i met a guy friend whom i contacted pretty often because initially i was looking for advice from male perspective. My ex was desperate and begged me to be back with him for 3 weeks in February. He told me that he knew where he had gone wrong and willing to change. I rejected him but told him that i need time and space to think about it. I was considering to give him that chance. On the last week of February, he begged me for the last time. Few days after when i wanted to get back to him, he told me that he found someone else (a girl in vietnam from vietnam dating website) and that he did not want to get back to me anymore. I was so upset but thought that nothing much of it. We still keep in contact once in awhile thereafter but i didn't beg him anymore. 3 weeks after, i found out that he had flown to vietnam to meet the girl. Yesterday i found out as well that he posted pictures of them on Facebook (he unfriended me but his friend told me about the pictures). I was devastated. The new girl looks alot like me! Plus knowing how well he cares about his image to be the good guy, it took a great deal of thoughts to post those photos knowing that people knew he just break up with me... is what he has a rebound? What do i do to get him back? I needed him back desperately because i loved him so much. I became very worried and needed help. as i was browsing through the internet, I came across a website that suggested that Dr.Unity can help get ex back fast and stop a divorce or breakup and so on , So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a (return Love spell) for me. 28 hours later, my boyfriend came back to me crying and begging for my forgiveness.
