How do you feel about your stretch marks?

13 signs from the universe that you’re finally a grown-up. 

The more and more candles we blow out on our birthday cake, the more and more we “get old” and realise that the things we used to do aren’t so easy any more.

Here are 13 things that happen as you get older:

1. You drop it down low in Zumba class and you have a really, really ridiculously hard time getting back up.

2. You’re out with your girls and you notice an attractive guy in the distance. The very first comment made is no longer about whether or not he has a nice tush or a captivating smile, but whether or not he has a ring on his finger.

3. When you say the words, “I love you” or “I’m sorry” or “Goodbye” you say them as gigantic bulging butterflies swarm the lining of your delicate stomach. You’re aware that these words carry tremendous weight, just like you’re aware that these words have an expiration date.

Not appropriate attire for work.

4. Crappy fast food actually starts to taste crappy.

5. It's no longer a two-drink minimum for you. It's a two-drink maximum, or else you'll be snoozing on top of the marble slab bar before midnight.

6. You put that sexy short leopard print dress back on the hanger because you fully respect why your HR department wouldn't find that work appropriate.

7. WebMD is always at the top of your browsing history.

8. You're sometimes tempted to ask the DJ at the club to turn down the bass, just a little.

9. On the top of your things to worry about list, you'll find words like: cholesterol, taxes, marriage, credit score.

10. When speaking with someone in high school and college you have to gulp down the urge to release a "When I was your age," on them.

11. You start to wonder who some of the people on your Facebook newsfeed are, and then you realise it's because they got married and have new last names.

12. You look up the going rate for Beanie Babies these days and even your computer laughs at you.

13. Your metabolism has a theme song and it's "Don't Stop Believing."
