Do you look your age?

sillylilkitten sillylilkitten
Do you look like you're the age you are? I look much younger than I am, and while I know that "I'll appreciate it when I'm older," right now it's just very frustrating being treated like a child and not taken seriously. And I know that as much as he hates to admit it, it does make my bf a bit embarrassed to be seen with someone who looks so young, especially since he's already a few years older than me as it is. Anyone else have any problems with not looking their age? Do people mistake you for being a different age even if you don't think you look older/younger than you are?

A lot of people think I'm way younger than I am. While I appreciate it sometimes, I don't particularly appreciate it in a professional setting. It makes it much harder to be taken seriously, especially as I head into my 30s. Trying to dress "older" doesn't really help since I just look like I stole Mom's work clothes and makeup for the day.

Anyway, give it time. We all look "old" eventually.

Nah I'm often mistaken for being a teenager - and most of this is because of my height I suppose. I don't particularly dress to appear a certain way just what I find appealing and/or is comfortable.

I think I look about my age, but my wife looks nothing like a 50 year old. She looks hot and younger than me and I'm 44.

I look nothing like my age. I'm 23 and I've been asked if my 30th birthday is coming up ._. When I have makeup on though, I look like a teenager. I blame my mother for all that. But in the long run...when I'm in my 40's I'll probably look my age. Not a single woman in my family looks her age at all. They mainly look younger with me as the exception (without makeup that is).

I used to look older, but that is because I am usually more mature then my peers. I think I am finally starting to equal out. My bf, looks more then 5 years younger then he is. So since he is older then me we even out. =)

People used to always think I looked younger, but I think I look my age at this point. When I was 22 years old I was talking with someone about my two kids when another woman over heard our conversation and came over to me. She touched my arm, looked at my face for a moment and said, "There's no way you have two kids!" I asked what she meant. She said that she didn't even think I was old enough for high school yet! WOW! That surprised me!

People are usually shocked when I tell them my age. They assume I am about 10 years younger. Hated it when I was really young, but at my age now, its a regular bonus. I also love getting carded whenever I order a drink.

Mistaken for younger all the time. I think keeping out of the sun and generally good skin genes are the reasons; I also think my lack of more worldly experiences contributes to it, too. Possibly also my social awkwardness.

It happened twice just this past week: one of my workshop co-participants started freaking out when I mentioned I had been married for ten years and divorced only a few years ago, and asked if I was a child slave bride ("You don't look any older than 20!"); then my yoga instructor was quite surprised when I mentioned my age, as she pegged me for my early 20's and C for mid-20's (we're the same age).

I find it's actually an advantage at my time of life/development, as no one would be as helpful to me if they knew I was 35 ("You should know all this shit already!") and it gives me an "excuse" for making mistakes ("You're young, you'll get used to it.").

EXTREMELY young-looking for my age.

Still getting carded eight years after my 21st birthday.

I think I look younger but some people think I look older. It really just depends on the situation and what I'm wearing.

I'm 20, but depending on how I do my hair and whether I wear my glasses, I'm told I can look anywhere from 16 to 25. (And I rarely get carded at clubs and bars.)
