    I've had people stop me in public,

    amazed that my kids just called me "mom". Now that my kids are older, people say they actually thought I was their sister. Lol...it's weird but it's nice.

    I'm 25 but I always get mistaken

    for 16. I had a 19 year old girl shoot me down because of it, and I had a high school junior think I was a freshman this year. Also had the person cutting my hair call me a "kiddo" lol. Guess I'm destined to stay a kid. ๐Ÿ˜…

    I'm 18. Today I went out to eat with some

    family members and I got handed a kids menu. -.-' Gosh, I was kinda offended haha! Maybe if I just put on some makeup today I may have looked older, but even with makeup on I still get confused for someone younger.... :/

    I have such a baby face!

    It's annoying! All the girls my age look "hot" and "sexy" but me... Well I am apparently "cute" and one of the guys because none of them will date me! I hate it but least I don't get hit on every other day! I want to look sexy! But I guess I am cursed with this face.... Damn...

    I'm about to turn 34,

    4'9 ft and 104 lbs. Married. Yesterday a sales person knocked on my door, I don't normally open the door but I don't know why I did. When he saw me he asked if I was with mom or dad! LOL! I guess I really look that young.

    I am turning 27 this year.

    But because of my height and my face (?) they think I am 20-23 ish. I get hit on by younger guys but I would prefer those who are within my age range or (not much) older than I am

    I am 14 in a couple of weeks

    but people think I'm only 12 and I really get annoyed when they don't believe me. My friend is a few months older but when we go out people think she's 16/17 and say we are joking when we tell them we are the same age arrrr!

    I'm 31 and people still think I look about 20.

    I have a 9 year old son and people are always surprised because they think I look too young to have a 9 year old child.

    EVERYONE thinks I'm 13-15 years only in grade 8

    or 9 and I'm going to be 18 in January and attending University! It's so annoying when someone mistakes you as being a 13-15 years old

    I'm 18yo, but people say I look like 15

    or 16yo..... Maybe because I am small for my age, because I'm just 5'4 and 104Ibs :))))

    I just ran into my old bus driver from k-8

    and he recognized me. Even knew my name. I look young and I'm pretty immature, maybe I'm immortal.

    I don't know rather it's great genes

    or a clean lifestyle but it could be both. People are very often shock when i tell them my age. Because of my young looks, they think i'm about 19 or 18 with facial hairs lol. I learn to accept it a long time ago because it's not so bad. I see it as this way; when i get older, i...

    I hate this fact about my face

    I'm going to be twenty this year

    and I look MAYBE 16. I'm very short and if I didn't have a tattoo, you'd never know that I was over 18. It's great because on the bus I pay youth fare and at work the kids aren't intimidated by me, but it sucks because I'm not taken seriously most of the time by fellow adults...

    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. ;)
