    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    :/

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I am 15 but I look like 12.

    I like my class mates but I feel around them as a young kid with adults. They are much bigger and more developed and have gfs and some smoke and I have my childish problems.

    I'm 21 but people always think I'm in high

    school. Bouncers at shows always stare at my ID for a loooong time and give me looks like "this is probably fake but whatever". Also this guy I've been talking to who is also 21 asked me how old I was and when I told him, he was like "oh what really?? That's good. I was worried...

    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...
