    People Confuse My Age Quite Often

    Since I was guesses about my age have overshot by up to 15 years, and these days it isn't as cool as it used to be. I always thought it was cool that people thought me older than all my girlfriend and my ex-wives. Who were between 2 and 7 years older than me. But the day it quit...

    My favorite teacher (gaming teacher) thought I

    was senior today. Also, my science teacher didn't even think I was a student. Wow, proves that I look old.

    For the most part of my life I've been quite tall for my age. Recently I've stopped growing so now everyone towers over my but I remember a time when I was mistaken for being older than I really am. I was in Blackpool with my family, aged 8. We'd been in our hotel for a few...

    I get asked all the time "do you work here?

    " and get comments like "oh you scared me, I thought you were the sub" It's a curse at school and a blessing when out and about

    I just turned 21, and recently I decided to

    grow my beard/goatee out again. Now I went to the local GameStop to pre-order a game, and guy working at the counter didn't even ask for my ID to check if I'm old enough to buy said game. The funny thing is a month prior, when my face was hairless, the same person who asked for...

    Seeing as my profile decides to list my age

    as 13-15, I would just like to take a moment to clear the air. I am in fact 15 years old! Frequently I’m told I appear older than I am in reality, based on my looks and how I act, and I gladly take this as a compliment. Truthfully, I’ve always agreed with these statements...

    I'm Just 13!

    Many older guys specifically (17-20+) hit on me thinking I'm their age until they talk to me and realize I'm just 13... Do I really look old? Though most of the old guys I talk to are kind of cute so I think its okay, but I find it creepy at times... :/

    Apparently I Look Older

    Ever since I started high school everyone seems to think I'm older, like when I went I best buy like 5 workers asked what college i go to. And the first few weeks of school I kept getting asked if I'm a junior or senior. Odd.

    Possibly. Fast food workers keep me guessing.

    They offer senior discounts. And senior freebies. Me accepts. Because me feels 91. And deserving. Entitlement or sin???? Or accepting a gift from God????

    I Look How Much Older??!!

    At 23 I looked about 17 with my luxurious jaw-dropping golden blond hair and fair complexion. At 34 all that has changed. My luxurious hair is now thinning and receding. My envious golden blond color is now drab mousy brown. My muscular physique is now skinny. While I am no...

    I'm taller than a lot of people my age

    and I have a very defined jaw line, so sometimes people assume I'm I'm my mid-twenties. Whatever, I'll go along with it.

    I've Always Been Mistaken For Being Older Than I Really Am.

    When I was only 14 I was being mistaken as 16 or 17. Now that I'm 17 most people in town think I'm a college student. And when I actually wear makeup and nice clothes I've passed for early-twenties.

    for being 15-17. Or a guy. I see how they mistake for a guy but I really don't get how I look like I'm 15-17. Like, I have the body of a ******* 10 year old, how do they think I'm 15.

    Always Looked 3-4 Years Younger But Not Anymore

    People always though i looked younger by 3-4 years. It made me feel good to know I looked younger until one day at the airport cafe. I was 26 then and was buying coffee when a much older lady called me "madame" instead of "mademoiselle" which made me feel utterly odd, having...

    Everyone always thinks I'm older than I am, and sometimes that's a real pain. I know I should be happy about that at my age, but it's weird, especially with guys giving me 'looks' that make me feel uncomfortable.
