    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...

    :/

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
