    Medical Condition

    I have an undefined medical condition. The doctors do not have a name for it, and are not overly worried about it, other than the fact that I develop at about half speed. It is a big hassle in the fact that I am constantly having to prove how old I am.

    I still get carded for everything,

    I was refused alcohol when I was 23 because the woman said I had a fake ID, and a gas station worker had the nerve to shake her head and make a rude comment about me wearing a tube top because I was "too young". I told her I was 22 and that shut her right up. I'm 28 and my three...

    Well, no one seemed to notice the advantage.

    I think some fail to take advantage of looking younger. When you grow up, get experience, you find that both women and men are attracted to younger people. Then, looking like you're 14 can be a definite advantage. ;)

    I'm 20, but yeah I don't look my age.

    People think I am younger. They haven't really told me an age exactly, but yeah . Maybe it's because I am short ha:P and well I don't really like the idea of growing up. I am mature in many aspects of my life, but when it's comes to have fun, I am really immature lol. Like...

    Apparently.

    I am nineteen years old, however whenever I meet new people, they assume I'm between twelve and fifteen. Do I take it as a compliment? No. I find it offensive, in fact. I'm an adult, almost twenty years old, and yet they think I'm a kid. Because I look like one, I'm then treated...

    Alright, let me start by saying

    that this may offend a few women out there, and I apologize in advance for that because it truly isn't meant to be taken that way, though I know it will be. I'm just sort of curious as to how other people feel about my situation, as I'm sure others have been there as well. I am...

    When you're my age it is a blessing!

    I'm over forty but most people think I'm in my early or mid thirties. Sadly I know longer look young enough to get carded! In regards to the benefits of looking young, I have a friend a little younger than myself whose always been short and had a boyish looking face so that...

    Well I thought I did

    I may look like I'm twelve,

    hence my baby cheeks face and short height, but I'm actually a 97 kid. Do the math. Asian problems forever. I would rather look younger than older; as I get older. But treated like my own age. I am also the kind of girl who never wants to grow up, so sometimes I act like a...

    One time I really understood how much younger I

    looked when I helped out in a student music team and this high schooler was very friendly and was chatting me up... Then he asked where I went to school and his face fell when I said I was already working... Whoops ;) Sorry kid!

    Age Play With The Fact I Do Look Young

    If you were to look at my pictures you would have to agree that I look younger than I really em. I'm at the turning point of 20 and stand 4'7. I've been asked before by people I dated or know to dress up for them like a little girl. Its been fun and its also been creepy. Having a...

    funny story time, I am older

    than my boyfriend by almost three years, making me 24 when I met his mom. She took him aside and politely asked him if the girl he brought home was of legal age. I did not hear this part, only his somewhat loud "what must you think of me?! " and saw her very red face. Of course...

    I Look Like I'm In My Late 20's, Not Early 40's

    I guess I look young for my age, and it must be due to my Asian genes. I get it all the time-people shocked at how young I look. It is a little bothersome because people don't tend to respect me much until they get to know me. I am a hard worker and I am dedicated and honest. If...

    It's kind of flattering

    when people say I look way younger that my age. One time, I was at the gym and this lady approached me and asked about who accompanies me to the gym because it was almost midnight. I told her I go by myself, and I could see she was a little bit appalled by my response. She then...

    I am 33 years old and a middle school teacher.

    My kids always ask how old I am and I tell them to guess. They usually stick to 23 or 24. I just tell them I will go with that and walk off. Last week a student that knows me really well freaked out when he heard I was 33. He swore up and down that I was 20.
