I Look Too Young For My Age

    When Am I Going To Look Like An Adult?!

    I'm twenty-one years old and don't look a day over fifteen. I look at girls my age with envy, when am I going to be tall and have a mature looking face? Instead I look like a short pudgy baby faced fifteen year old. I guess when I'm fifty and finally look like I'm at least in...

    So I walk into the pharmacy today and I attempt to purchase my items. The pharmacist asks me if I am over 16, to which I reply "yes way over" and he replies "well you don't look it to be fair!" What?!?! I am 22 years old. Am I over sensitive, is that supposed to be a compliment...

    :/

    I'm 15 years old and I still get mistaken for a 12 or 13 year old. It's good when I want a free meal or to get into the movies cheaper, but people don't take me seriously. It bothers me to no end that just because I don't look my age, people don't think I really mean what I say...

    Fountain of Youth?

     I still get strangers and new coworkers who think I go to high school. When I tell them I am a college graduate, they don't believe me! I guess I'm 5 years behind my actual age? The only down side I see of this for me is that younger guys think I...

    Guys Think So

     When guys hit on me, they always ask my age. They want to make sure I'm not the innocent freshman in my early teens that they think I look like.

    Manchild

    I'm 25 and I've been told I look about 20. This sucks when you like girls your own age but they say you look too young. Too childish. I guess its fine, maybe its gods way of telling people they should just have fun and be a young'n. Maybe ill like it more as I age. Age is...

    A Bit Annoying Sometimes...

    Yeah, so I'm 24, but apparently I look a lot younger.  Last year I went to a movie theater with my mom and the cashier asked 'An adult and a child?'  I just smiled and nodded, because child tickets were like $3 cheaper.  I looked at the sign and a child was...

    It Is A Blessing But Also Can Be A Pain

    I am thirty six years old. I have a womanly figure that I can hide really well even as busty and curvy as I naturally am (figure shape not fat). I look very young in my face, am naturally happy which makes me look younger and I also have a voice of a little girl. I had to get an...

    Baby-face Kid

    My son is 15, and he is having lots of trouble making friends right now. He's down about it a lot, and when I try to objectively look at him, I think he's likeable, although a little on the shy side. Mostly I think his problem is that he is still rather short, about 5'3", while...

    I'm 22 in 2 months but people seem convinced

    I'm 16/17, I have to admit it's frustrating that people still see me as a child when I've been waiting to be an adult my whole life. It sounds childish I know!

    21 Years Old, But Look About 15-17

    So, I turned 21 July of this past year. Certainly a big occasion. Only problem is that I don't even look close to 21. I was a very late developer and struggled with a lot of self-image issues growing up. When I was 10, I looked about 6, when I was 12, I looked about 8, when I was...
