When Am I Going To Look Like An Adult?!

I'm twenty-one years old and don't look a day over fifteen. I look at girls my age with envy, when am I going to be tall and have a mature looking face? Instead I look like a short pudgy baby faced fifteen year old. I guess when I'm fifty and finally look like I'm at least in my thirties it won't bother me so much.

I remember when I was a teenager, I looked older than my age. Partly because I was tall. I mean that I went into a bar at the age of 14 with someone who is over the age of 18, drank one glass of beer, and never got IDed.<br />
<br />
However, now I am in my 30s and I look like I'm in my 20s. I'm still tall, but I find that ironic. Part of me looking younger is because of genetics (My own mother doesn't look her age) and because of Retasol A (Yes, I have adult acne).<br />
<br />
I also remember last year someone commenting on a friend of mine (Who is the same age as me), and that he looked younger than he really is.<br />

When you are older and someone comments that you look younger than you really are (You'll probably look like you are in your twenties when you are in your thirties), accept it. But there will be times where people insincerely think that you are inexperienced when you are really not. You just have to remind them how old you are and that you have the experience.

Sweetie, trust me, you're going to love it when you hit 30 and you're still getting proofed! And when you're 40 and being mistaken for 30! I used to feel just the way you did, and now I'm so glad to look so much younger than I really am. I'm horrified at how old most of my former classmates look, and I'll never look as old as them, LOL! Believe me, you're going to LOVE this someday!!!
