WordPress, Will You Like Me When I’m 23?

Updated 5/17

So, my birthday is in two weeks!

I think birthdays stopped being exciting after 21, now everything just seems disappointing. To quote Blink 182 (like everyone else does on their 23rd birthday), “Nobody likes you when you’re 23.” And soon, I’ll be exactly that age.

So far, I’ve LOVED 2016. I set goals for myself monthly and I’ve crushed all of them. I do new things, meet new people, and have accomplished so much.

I’ve set a new goal myself. My goal is to have 400 likes on my Facebook page by my birthday – which is May 31st. I currently have 398 likes!! Thank you to everyone who visited my Facebook page and gave it a like 🙂 You may be thinking “only 2 likes away! That’s not so hard!” Trust me guys, it’s not easy. I briefly reached the 400 and then two people unliked my page so I’m back under again lol

If you have a Facebook and you want to give me a little birthday present this year, head over to www.facebook.com/hookupcultures and give the page a like 🙂 I know numbers aren’t everything, but they are something. And the reach I get from Facebook is tiny, but significant. Having just 20 more followers makes a world of difference in stats. Especially when I know the people I follow on WordPress are from all over the world!

Thank you in advance!

And by all means, if you have a Facebook page please drop your link in the comments! I would love to like your page back.

  1. Hey Rosie I liked you on FB. Please like my page back at this link: https://www.facebook.com/mandibelle16.AMEifert.ca/posts/1705878276359279

    I wish I was 25 or 23 and I had my twenties before me to use how I like. Your twenties are supposed to be great but for me when I was 23 I became sick and never fully recovered. I hope your 23rd birthday is a birthday how birthday’s should be in your twenties, surrounded by your best friends and everyone they invited, lots of good stuff to drink 😉 and a fun time for you. Don’t get too drunk, you’ve experienced this a lot I’m sure but it gets harder to recover going farther into your twenties. Not at 23 but maybe around 25. Have fun!

  2. Happy birthday for when it arrives (saying now, because I forget dates)…..23 eh? That was 1974 (yep! 19-74) for me. As the birthday count goes up (as they do), work with this advice ‘Never Mind The Years…Enjoy The Day’

  3. There’s a song by the Beatles “When I’m 64.” The song says ‘will you still need me when I’m 64.’ Your title reminded me of this.
    I wouldn’t worry because they also say that 25 is when you are at your most beautiful. Look at it this way, for two years you will be working up to your best.

  6. Hello 🙂 You must be a fellow Gemini. Mine is June 2nd. I’ll be 45 and trust me birthdays can continue to be fun beyond 21, even beyond 23! A good friend of mine just celebrated her 70th – I got her giant pink helium balloons, in the shape of 70 Ha! Off to like your page then… Happy Birthday in advance…

  7. Having grown up during the Free Love/Hippie Culture, I admit the Hookup Culture looks a lot like that to me, but with more alcohol and less love. I don’t envy you your struggles or the way social media leads many to believe there is any real value in the number of FB “Friends” we have. Thoughtful comments might truly reflect the value of our blogging thoughts, but then, this does seem to be a very supportive community.

    Don’t worry about turning 23, science has shown our brains don’t finish developing till we’re about 27 — so you’re not even all grown up yet. It just feels that way. lol. And as I recall, turning 23 was the beginning of my first really great year. Then 27. Then 30 — go figure! And it just keeps getting better from there!

    So happy birthday on the 31st! May it bring you the Best. Year. Ever.

    1. Thank you so much 🙂 The Hookup Culture really is a time of less love, but I think it’s just temporary for those who are in their teens or early twenties. I’m glad to know I will keep developing, learning, and growing until I’m atleast 27 – that is definitely something to look forward to 🙂 I am trying to make it the best! Thank you again!

      1. You’re welcome! And you can continue to learn for as long as you’re alive — the only difference after 27 is that your higher brain functions will be fully functioning! ❤
