    I think I appear older

    than my age with all the cheek tissue sagging. But this theory is very confusing especially when a relative thought I am in high school oO. That was hilarious. would that be because of my height. I am petite.

    Everyone always thinks I'm around 15 years old

    although I'm 10 years older than that. It used to bother me, but I embrace it now. I know that I'll appreciate it when I get older.

    People have actually argued with me about my

    age. They say I'm 17, I say I'm 22. They say "no you're not" and I show them my driver's license.

    When I was young, I used to look older.

    Now I'm older and look younger. Can't complain!

    I'm 18 . I wish I looked my age

    but I don't. It annoys me when people ask my age then don't believe me when I tell them. I don't lie.

    My age here is not my correct age.

    In my 60s I wouldn't be here. It's 66-70 because I want it that way. Nothing serious.

    Im 14 with the body, looks,

    and mind of a 22 year old. Always ask someone their age before you start talking to them. Looks can be decieving.

    I will be 40 in just few more days.

    I am looking older lately but i could pass for 30 if i tried. it does have its upsides as well as down. The good part is I can act a fool and not looked at with as much disapproval as usually levied upon a man of my true age. People who me from the bar or from my jobs like...

    I'm 18 and I'm constantly being told I look

    older because I'm taller. I guess being tall has its perks I never have to worry about getting into clubs or buying alcohol because people just assume I'm of age :)

    On average, people guess me 5 years younger

    than I really am. Although I think that number might be increasing.
