    Shortness

    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'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'm 22 years old, and I look like a 16 year old,

    but when I cut off all my facial hair, I look like a tall 12 year old. I love it though, because I will always look young as I get older.

    I always looked way younger.

    When I was 18 it wasn't unusual for people to guess I was 14 or even 12. Anyway I am now in my late 40s and still look way younger. I am told that I look 10-15 years younger than my age. Women in their 20s flirt with me and are very surprised when they learn my age. I am...

    No one has ever guessed right my age.

    People always think I'm 17 or 18 and I always get asked for my id everywhere... It gets annoying sometimes.

    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.

    when I ask strangers to guess my age they usually guess between 13 and 15. I'm 4'10" and still have quite a childlike face. For my 18th birthday my husband (my boyfriend back then) decided to take me to an adult store to buy some couples toys. We went in, and immediately the...

    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...

    Not Cracking Yet...

    Even though I am 32, I can pass for anywhere between 18-25. I am not just saying this, I have HEARD this from others! People are taken aback when I say my age and they say, "Naaaaaahhhh...you don't look it!" Thank God for the mega anti-aging genes I seem to have. I am not...

    It Isn't Always Flattering

    I go to a store to buy some wine, and the clerk asks for my ID. I assure him that I'm old enough, but my license is in my car and I'm heading for an event, slightly in a hurry. He is doing his job, hates to insist, but really does need to see it. I jaunt out and return, handing...

    People I work with always tell me I am very

    mature for my age. Not true, I just look way younger than I actually am. I have always looked extremely young for my age. I could still pass for a sophomore in high school.

    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 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 Look Way Younger Then I Am

    I'm almost 30 with a toddler and a baby on the way but I hate the looks that people give me when I'm out with my baby. People tend to think I am in my teens and they give me dirty looks when I go to the mall or grocery store. Everyone assumes I'm 14 and pregnant and it is so...

    At the moment of writing I'm 28,

    but people often estimate me at 21. This happens especially when I just shaved. At least it makes my ID useful. Most people buy one and only show it once, but I get to use it almost every week if I want to buy a beer.
