    I look a lot older. By the time I graduated

    high school I had gray temples. Was completely gray by 35. So most people think I am 15 to 20 years older.

    I'd Prefer To Age Like Fine Wine

    I'm nearly thirty, but I am often mistaken for being in my early twenties.  I really do appreciate the comments, and count them as compliments rather than be insulted by it.  When I was in my early twenties, I was always carded and often mistaken for being sixteen or so.  I...

    Almost 20

    I am almost 20 and people always guess I am 25 or so  when I don't shave or 17 or so when I am shaved. No one ever guesses my age only undershoots it or overshoots it.
