    I'm a 12 year old mistakened

    for a 16-17 y/o. I'm nearly 2 metres in height and I look older than everyone in my class level. It would seem an advantage; but I dread it, honestly. I'm "The odd one out" my height and difference makes me so noticeable. I wouldn't mind being able to shrink.

    Everyone...

    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.

    I'm always being told

    that I look so much older than I am and it's rather scary. Personally I think I look my age rather than looking older. For example today, I was walking round Brighton and I got 3 men either asking me for my number or inviting me into the bars in the lanes. I just politely...

    People tell me I look 18

    and I seriously do not know how to convince someone that I'm seriously 14. I'm 14 so stop telling me my age range on this app isn't right.

    I am told I look 40 or older,

    but I'm 29 years old. Balding runs in the family, and I refuse to shave the mustache.. I have been hit on by older women, many times even though I am happily engaged to my very lovely @StandingFirm.

    The full beard and mustache doesn't help me

    look any younger. My voice only adds to the effect. There has even been college students who believed I was older than them!

    Well I was walking home from GameStop one day

    Im 14, and I'm always told I'm a realist,

    but I honestly just see the truth in everything. Everyone says I look 17-18. I have friends in their 20s who've graduated from my school, and it's not weird at all. Like, they're not pedos or anything. They're great. I have the body of an 18 year old, and my mind isn't far...

    There was this one time

    when I used to go to weekend school, this teacher said I looked about 15 or 16 when I was only 13 at the time...I was flaming mad. But now I see it as a compliment. Even though I'm only 15 and people think I'm about 16-18.

    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 have an older sister who's 23

    and I am 16, everyone always asks if we're twins because I guess we look so much alike.. but when we tell them we're not that we're actually seven years apart, they assume I'm the older one lol.
