I Look Way Younger Then I Am

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,098 People

    I am 28. 5.0 and i have 8 months old son.

    ... People see me as a teenager who waisted her life and future. When i tell people i have husband they ask me why i married so young. And then i tell them my age and they are shocked. I look like 19,20 sometimes 17 but it depends how i have my hair and what i wear.

    This is great of course!

    But sometimes it makes you feel as if your doing something wrong... Especially when your talking to someone online and you get the distinct impression they simply do not believe you are actually 40! I am not a silly young girl trying to trap anybody. I am real, I happen to look...

    I don't really know if I look younger than I am. I mean, I'm used to seeing myself. It's just that everybody my age usually looks way older than me. So, in the end, do I look younger -or just my age and are the rest looking older than their age? And does it matter? To them, maybe...
