I Look Younger Than I Am

    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 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.

    I am about to turn 37

    and have a preteen daughter. People are just starting to say I look like I can finally pass for being 21. UGH, but funny too.. My daughter has been asked for her whole life: who is that picking you up from school?= “your nanny,” “your sister,” “your babysitter...

    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...

    I am a guy. I am fairly short (5'7"),

    thin (~125 pounds) and can't grow facial hair to save my life. I am almost 27 but could easily pass for 15. No fun.

    because I am emotionless. Less smiles=less wrinkles.

    I Have Been 18 For 10 Years Now...

    When i was in high school, around age 16, people started mistaking me for older, usually they guessed 18. As i got older, with each passing year, people have continued to guess that i'm 18. I turned 19, then 20, then 21, then 22, 23, 24, and now i am currently 25 damn years old...

    I'm told I'm 15 all the time.

    Probably has to do with the fact that I rarely dress up 😂 ah well

    Being 5'0" and with a bit of a baby face people

    tell me they have thought I was in my mid teens. I am really 22. Yes, I know, I will be glad for this when I am older (people say that), but right now it can get in the way sometimes.

    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...

    It's meant to be a blessing

    but it can be quite embarrassing. I walked onto a ward and one of the staff go "look at that baby face, are you in school today?" I blink at them wondering if they're kidding, since I'm in uniform too. "I'm one of the students here." "Oh! Oh ok... " I get this all the time. I...

    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!

    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 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

    Emily Kinney from TWD.

    Thought she was 16-17. I know how she feels to look younger, this always happens to me, always since I was a kid. The last one was last weekend, 2 guys came to me at restaurant and thought I was 25. I remember 2 years ago, I went to a dentist and she said "you're 19, why are you...

    Age Play With The Fact I Do Look Young

    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...

    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.
