I Look Younger Than I Am

    Most people think I'm younger

    than I am! Partially I think because of my personality. I kind of have a high energy, youthful personality. But I often have women ask me for my secrets! Well I've always eaten a lot of veggies, drank a lot of water and kept my skin clean and moisturized. I don't use any...

    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...

    people often say I look like I'm 14.

    4 years younger. This might help me in the future.

    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. ;)

    which a lot of people consider a "baby face" and I'm kind of short about 5'5. Alot of younger kids look at me as if I'm their age and having two younger sisters doesn't help either. Whenever my bf and I go out they always ask for my I.D even if it's to see an rated r movie. And...

    but I love being short. I hate the constant reminders I get from friends, family and complete strangers. But what the hell, I can get a discount price for saying I'm under 12 even though I can legally buy cigarettes ;)

    No harm looking younger

    than you are. You get all the benefit when you are older, but you have to stay young in mind not just your body

    I'm 57, but I don't look a day over 56.  Of course, it's a 56 that's slept in a culvert, been thrown down several flights of stairs, shot full of Thorazine, done time for drug smuggling, and endured the ravages of what, in polite society, is called "divorce." ...

    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.

    and most of the time away from other people. I don't get caught up in very much drama with other folks and live mostly a stress free life. Though I am in my mid fifties, my hair is still mostly brown/black and time has only given me a few laugh lines around my eyes.

    Society has long become more open to the idea

    of older men younger women relationship. Younger women are more vibrant, more full of life and that energy can spill over onto you, making older men feel younger in return. Typically, women mature at a faster rate than men do and sometimes a 50 year old man is more compatible...

    Although I am 17, due to my small stature

    and occasionally my personality, I'm usually mistaken to be younger. These misconceptions of my age range from the idea of me being a sophomore to the assumption that I am a 10-12 years old. I blame it on the infamous Asian aging theory.
