    I Get Mixed Ages All The Time!

    I have a pretty unique situation, being 20 years old but still finishing up highschool. So seeing me in uniform generally throws people off to begin with and people assume I"m 15-18. I'v been told I have a young girl's face. But at the same time, other people I'v met while out...

    I Don't Look My Age

    People have thought me to around 40 or 50.  Well I'm 61.  So obviously I don't look my age.

    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.

    "These Can't Be All Yours?"

    from people at gas stations. I've always looked younger than my age. It's probably because I'm only 5'0 and I have a baby face. :P
