Just curious about this one. I'm 24 and in the last 3 months have noticed quite a few small "smile lines" showing up around my eyes. They don't bother me, but I thought I'd at least make it until my 30's before I got those To be fair, I do spend a lot of time outside (even with sunscreen) and have been a little stressed recently, so it's no real surprise.

When can I start using them to attract women that go for older men?

From 20 on, aging takes place. I would say every 10 years you look like a complete different person. Mid thirties is when you start getting a lot of lines and it goes downhill after that.

Besides wrinkles, you will also lose hair volume, skin texture(bigger pores), bigger nose, fat in the wrong places, smaller lips, deeper scars, bigger ears, age spots, gray hair, sunken eyes, loose skin and many medical problems like high blood preassure, cancerous cells, acid reflux, arthritis, cholesterol etc.

Did I forget anything?

Yup! Dementia! And then you don't care about any of that on your list! Be happy.

Lines? My mother and father and their siblings were heavily lined in their forties and fifties. With that genetic inheritance I should have been carrying my face in a net by thirty-five. But....I got my first "laugh lines" at the corner of my eyes in my mid-sixties and one - and one only - line across the forhead. Aside from that supple, wrinkless face skin.

With ill health and a difficult eye surgery in my early seventies, my face now looks old, and though now my jowls are sagging too, the texture of my face skin remains the same - supple and unwrinkled.

I am the only one of my cousins that I know whose skin has stayed this way; thus, in part at least my genetic heredity is an exception. (And I know for certain that my parents are truly my natural parents.)

However, personal lifestyle has much to do with it too, I believe. For reasons having nothing to do with bodybuilding or anything like that, I pursued a diet high in protein, and much vitamin E supplementation (not for skin reasons)....and then after several decades of heavy smoking and boozing, zero booze and smokes. Lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, lots of poultry and fish - very little of other meats, extra virgin olive oil.

But true, in any case, no matter how it goes there is just ageing, decay and death. Your mileage may vary, but the route and the destination remains the same.

Everyone starts showing those little wrinkles at a different age/time in their lives and it is not specific to being white, black, brown, purple, orange, green, yellow or any other color. What does make a differance is how much stress you are under, if you have lost weight or gained weight, how much time you have spent in the sun without sunscreen, if you tan in a tanning booth, how often and how much time you spend there, genetics, if you use moisturizer and a list of many other things.

As far as using them to attract others, I'm pretty sure every time you leave your home you stand a good chance to attract others unless of course those others are already inside your home.

Everyone is different. I am in my early fifties and still have no wrinkles on my face. All I notice is that I have a bit less elasticity - but actually, I really like my face right now because my bone structure is more apparent than it was when I was younger, and I like the look.

I have noticed some loss of elasticity under my chin. I ASSURE you that within five years, unless I hit rock bottom financially, I will get that tucked and tightened! But that's all I plan on doing. I figure that if I don't have smile lines now, even if I have them five years from now, they surely can't be that "bad" since I'm already ahead of the eight ball!

Good, tight, firm skin runs in my family. Note - we are olive complected and have dark eyes and dark hair. I do think that plays a role in skin health and firmness usually.
