    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...

    I feel younger too, I am very short,

    like 154 cm for my 15 years. Also I have very strict parents, I am treated more like a younger boy than my friends are, my parents still use with the belt and switch on me like weekly.

    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...

    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.

    from school, because he was sick. My mom and I were shopping so she came along. When we were talking to the nurse, apparently she assumed my mom was my son's parent, and (using that tone some adults use with kids/teens) 'So you must be his sister!' 'Nope, I'm his mom'. She...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    Isn't It Flattering?

    I will be 44 in a few months and most people think I'm around 35. I love it! I eat healthy, exercise, have never smoked or had alcohol and usually drink only water, and never wear make up. I think all of that has something to do with looking young.
