I'm 164cm and nearly 20, but the amount of times I've been mistaken for 15-16 is insane.

5'0. Little petite Asian person. I have a 7 month old son. Married. Age 20. People think I'm 14-15. Not my fault, us Asians got some good skin. So oily that it doesn't age and dry as fast. It's weird when you go to ur younger sisters high school choir concert and people see you and your child and say "Are you enrolled in the parenting health classes here? How is the electronic baby?"

Last year I was at court for a school event, and this woman stopped me and asked if I was with the high school group that was touring it that day.  I had to explain that I was in law school (and 24 years old), but yeah, thanks for thinking I look 17 I guess haha.


According to the boys' descriptions, Lux had lost weight, though we couldn't tell through the binoculars.  All sixteen mentioned her jutting ribs, the insubstantiality of her thighs, and one, who went up to the roof with Lux during a warm winter rain, told us how the basins of her collarbones collected water.  (Jeffrey Eugenides - The Virgin Suicides)

I worked at CVS at 18, and some guy asked the pharmacist why they hired a 15 year old.

I have a friend who has no filter. She tells me repeatedly how I have a baby face, and how I look 13, not 18.
