Some people have asked if my boyfriend was my brother. We both have blond hair and blue eyes. I have to admit that their reactions when I corrected them were absolutely priceless.
Unfortunately, I get the opposite.. my brother and I go out together alot - we have the same friends and just generally really enjoy each others' company...
People always think we're dating
... it's affected his "game" with the ladies even, haha...and ew.
Also, alas.... there is a significant age difference between me and my heart's delight, China Cat... and so, time to time we get the wince inducing comment of "Oh, is this your daughter?" He
does not look his age at all, more like 10 years younger, but I do look young for mine, I still get carded everywhere...even for cigarettes! :-/ There have been at least two instances in the beginning of our now 4 year relationship
where we were both so flabbergasted that someone would assume that (he is quite Italian and tan with light brown hair, whereas I am very Irish, alabaster complexion, freckles and black hair) that we just kinda bumbled and mumbled and pretty much left the assumer thinking they were right...
Now I just say, "Ha, oh no.. I am his girlfriend
... but I'll try to take that as a compliment..."
Letting the assumer now be the embarrassed one, no reason I should be embarrassed for having found the love of my life!!
