    There are so many stories i can (and will)

    share with this group i'll start with this one. When I was a teenager (and continuing as a young adult) no girls could take me seriously because of how young i looked (short, skinny with baby face). I was friends with one cute girl and we hung out a lot. One day i confessed...

    I'm So Tired Of Hearing That I Look So Young

    I get so frustrated hearing from people that I will be so happy one day to look so young for my age. Well that's nice, tell me I look young when I get older, not now when I'm 25 and I hear from everyone that I'm 15. Why do people think that saying this is a compliment when you...

    Looking Your Age

    What age do you appear to be? Well, I've always looked younger than I actually was and that continues to the present day when I'm 75 and people tell me that I look early 50s. In the ninth grade, I had a friend who was just the opposite. His name was John James. Funny name. Two...

    I look like 15-16. This was a real problem for me because everyone use to make fun of my because I was very different from people of my age group. I tried so many things to beef up my body but nothing worked for so far. Instead I get sick when I try these things. I don't know...

    I'm 20, But I Look Like I'm 12.

    I've always looked really young for my age. Probably because I'm half Filipino and my mom also looks really young for her age. Not only that, but I'm also pretty short for my age, so people are always thinking I'm younger then I really am. When I got my first job at...

    Hello, everyone, my name is Joey, and for many years now, I've felt that I look too young for my age.  It all started a few months after I turned fourteen.  I quit growing taller, and I thought my body was just taking a break, but several months later, I noticed that...

    I am beginning to appreciate it now

    as I am in my mid thirties but it was annoying when I was younger. Particularly being asked for ID in a bar when I was 25, much to the amusement of my 21 year old girlfriend at the time who wasn't asked.

    Still happens. People assume I'm 12-15 years younger than I am. Which is just fine with me now. Back then, it was such a nuisance to get carded. I tried to make the best of it, but I usually ended up annoyed. About 10 years ago I was at World Market and they had bottles of...

    20 Years Old, But I Look Like I Am 16 Or 17...

    Looking young has been an issue for me all my life. Growing up, I was often shorter than my peers and looked significantly younger. When I first started high school, I actually looked like I was about 10 or 11 years old when I was actually 15. (this was back in 2006) Funny thing...
