    I'm 19 and most people mistake me

    I Dont Look My Age

    Looking young runs in my family. I just turned 48 and people say I look like I'm in my late 20's or early 30's. Indeed it's a compliment, but sometimes I wish I looked older. I feel like I don't fit in with others my age. My mother is 87 and she could pass for mid 60's. My...

    when your 30 years or older I think it's awesome

    when people look younger than what they are and get compliments, but when your flipping almost 21 and your told you look like your 15, it drives me insane haha

    I'm 17, but people frequently mistake me

    for a tall 13-15 year old. I know that it's not a bad thing to have a "baby face" but it is a bit annoying at times.

    People would actually do anything to look

    youthful --skincare,botox,surgeries and etc. So appreciate if you looked younger than your real age :D

    Society has long become more open to the idea

    of older men younger women relationship. Younger women are more vibrant, more full of life and that energy can spill over onto you, making older men feel younger in return. Typically, women mature at a faster rate than men do and sometimes a 50 year old man is more compatible...

    I Don't Believe It

    I got cigarettes for my roommate the other day at the convenience store, and they carded me. Does that mean I don't look over 18? Then today, when I got some goodies at the bridal shop, she thought I was 20. I said "that's nice of you". I rationalized it though, telling myself...

    Forever Young

    People can be nice when it's easy. They used to say "you look so young for your age" "you can't possibly be that old". Then...it all stopped. Or that is how I perceived it. But looking back on it now. It seems it happened because I felt unworthy to be young and have compliments...

    It's Because I'm Short

    I am 17 years old and a senior, but I'm pretty short. When people I just meet look at me they think 14-15. They seem so surpised when I tell them my real, but the truth is, I kind of enjoy it. I can trick people with my height, lol.
