    I met this guy who's from Arabia.

    .. I'm in Japan now, staying with a host family and that guy lives in the family's new house. I'm staying in the old house. We started talking for hours... Then out of curiosity, I ask for his age. He tells me 18.... And he looks like 25!!!! Then he asks me... How old are you...

    Do I look my age? 20?

    XD sometimes, people think that my little sister is older than me....... Coz she is more feminine and wears high heels... She is... beautiful and looks her age even older. She is 18 while I'm 20... And people tell me I look like 14-15! XD

    Blessing Or A Curse?

    From the age of 16 to 19 I use to ride the bus for half fare (child's ticket) into town but still manage to enter the clubs without being I.D'd. The first time I was asked to prove my age was on my 19th birthday. The drinking age in the UK is 18. I gave the bouncer my driving...

    I wish I could upload a picture from this

    mobile app, but I can't. I am always being mistaken for fourteen-years old, but I'm really eighteen-years old and will be nineteen-years old this November.

    i turned 39 in May. i am told i look much

    younger - even that i fit in with upperclassmen in university, which would mean this person was saying i look early 20s. even my 17 year old daughter says i look younger, she says NOT early 20s, but definitely late 20s.

    People sometimes think I'm 10

    or 11. Being short is annoying sometimes, but it makes me unique, so I don't mind it.

    I have always looked younger.

    I knew one day I'd appreciate it. Not in my teens not in my twenties. But now. Especially as I watch my peers getting older. I realize I am lucky

    or 13. It's awkward when out in public and it's like I'm a kid walking, talking and eating with a few other female adults. I hate that I'm shorter than them too. And it all changes when I put on a bit of makeup. I mean, people freak out and their mouths hang open when they found...
