    Some Think I'm 12... And I'm 20!

    I'm 20 years old, 21 in a few months. (I can't wait!) People constantly mistake me for much younger. I've always looked young. My parents took advantage of that fact and got me into places for free or at a discount, lieing about my age and telling them I really was younger...

    Evidently.

    On one of my recent visits to the U.S. -- Houston, to be precise -- I made the innocent mistake of forgetting my ID when I went into what I suppose was a liquor shop (actually it was more like a gigantic supermarket that happened to sell booze as well) to buy a bag of limes. And...

    Going On 23 Not 17....

    I know by the time I am like 30 I will be very pleased to look young but currently it is a pain in the ***. It causes issues finding a serious relationship with someone around my age when they honestly feel I am younger by looks alone. As far as going out to bars and such it is...

    I Don't Mind.

    It doesn't bother me at all to be mistaken. Actually it makes for some pretty amusing situations. And um I could probably get away with some things because of how old I seem. I love being young and I'll enjoy the comments a while I still get them.

    21 Years Old, But Look About 15 Or 16.

    A few years ago, this issue was even worse. I kept telling myself that this would only be a temporary problem, but I was very wrong. I am already 3 years into adulthood and hardly even look 18, let alone 21. Don't even get me started on how many times I am carded. I still get...

    I'm constantly being judged as younger than what I am. For instance I was buying vodka at one location and the guy behind the counter said, "I bet you're one of those people who don't have an ID." And even when I laughed it off and handled him my perfectly valid...

    I Guess I Must Do

    I must look underage because I always get asked for ID. In some ways it is flattering but it's annoying too because I don't actually have ID lol! I should enjoy it while it still happens I suppose as it won't happen forever!

    Adults Only Pool

    I was on a cruise with my boyfriend and our close friends, as a kind of double-date deal. We are all adults -- all over 21 even! We got into one of the Adult-Only pools, and were playing around, because of course we're young at heart and not afraid to have a good time...

    I Look Too Young!!!

    Thanks To My Baby Face

    All my life I've had the cute cheeks that people liked to pinch. Looking at childhood photos I was always smiling making them look even bigger. Well. I'm still like that. The baby fat is gone, now replaced by adult fat of course lol but the cheeks will follow me until I die or...

    I'm 23 and I look 16,

    17 on a good day. I never used to mind but now it's driving me crazy! It makes so difficult for meeting the opposite sex around my age or older. And what's worse is the ones I do meet are pervy men hoping to get their way with an underaged girl :(

    Darn Them

    I'm 23. Everyone always comments on how young I look. It will be a compliment in about twenty years. I treat my skin well with wearing sunscreen and I eat healthy. Most people think that I am at least 17. I hate it.

    Rubber Cement? Seriously??

    I am in my early twenties so it never really bugs me to be carded for alcohol or to get into clubs or anything. But when the lady at Wal-Mart insisted on an ID for me to buy RUBBER CEMENT (apparently you have to be 16) I just about lost it. I am standing there with my car keys...

    Guess Me A Minor

    If I go anywhere than the usual spots I hit (the local gas station, liquor store, beer distributor, sports bar, grocery store), I get carded.  Always.  It's practically a rule of thumb.  One person actually tried to argue with me that it wasn't me in that ID...
