    I look like i'm a 10 year old child.

    I'm 15. It's okay though XD i still can go to the kids toy store, or the kids corner's clothes without the employees looking at me in pity.

    I'm 18 but everyone is always surprised

    when I tell them they always think I'm 12- 14. Maybe it's because I'm only 5 feet

    I am sixteen but most people say I look a lot

    younger because I am small for my age and have a baby face. I get mistaken for 12 or 13 which is annoying. I'm 4'10" and my voice when I talk doesn't help much, I sound like a little kid. I am told I will be happy about all this when I am older but right now it is annoying to...

    I Believe I Am Doing Some Things Right

    I am 51 years old. My face has no wrinkles. I believe I could easily pass for a man in his thirties; in fact I believe I look more like a man in his thirties than a man in his fifties. My body looks virtually no different from when I was in my twenties; just an inch or two I'd be...

    I feel younger too, I am very short,

    like 154 cm for my 15 years. Also I have very strict parents, I am treated more like a younger boy than my friends are, my parents still use punishments with the belt and switch on me like weekly.

    I look younger than my age to other people cause of my shortness and the clothes I could fit in with my height. I get a kids menu for children 11 and under from the waiter/waitress when I go out to eat with my family and I'm only 14 years old. But, it's okay because I can't eat...

    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.

    Growing up my mom treated me the age I looked,

    not the age I was. When I was 17 and looked 12, my mom would talk to me like I was 12. Embarrassing to say she even still gave me spankings. It was a negative feedback loop. When she treated me like a little kid I felt like a kid inside, not a young man.

    for a routine check and they thought my drivers license was a fake cause they didn't believe the age I was there forever and at the end the rcmp officer laughed it off saying I would appreciate it when I turn 50. At the beginning I thought it Funny but now I'm turning 36 soon...
