    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 am eighteen and I look like I'm 14-16 years

    old. People are shocked I can drive and go grocery shopping by myself. That I can go get lunch and go to church alone. Normally, it's okay and I just shrug it off but it's a little annoying when people underestimate you because you look younger than your actual age.

    I'm 23 and people still think I'm a teenager.

    It's great until I want to get beer. People always think I have a fake ID.

    People are usually shocked at my age.

    I'm 16 but have the body of a smaller child.

    When people see me driving I get weird looks . But when I'm at work in a professional setting (I do not work fast food) people often think I am older than I am.

    I took a bus and is waiting

    for a friend to find me. I got here cheap though since the bus driver insisted that I shouldn't pay adult price, even though I said adult. When I pointed out how expensive it would be if a control person came on board he just said that they'd never question me. And my tooth is...

    Isn't it fun seeing people get shocked by your

    actual age? It's even more amusing when I try to buy alcohol. I had to get my ID checked and the employee had to get her manager to make sure my card wasn't fake, and yesterday a group of older adults thought I was still in high school. Nope! This drink is good, though xD

    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!

    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 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...

    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...
