I'm 24 but people keep assuming I'm 17 - 20. Lol

Same age/assumed ages! Especially if I'm wearing little or no makeup.

Although I think so many years of starving and smoking started to age my skin a little. I quit smoking this year, which helped a ton.

I'm sixteen, 161cm, turning seventeen this year.

and I look like twelve years old next to my friends because I'm short and they are tall :)

 

i hate it, really.

Yes!

 

I'm 22, and yesterday someone asked me how old I was. So I told them and they looked shocked. I asked them how old they thought I was, and they said 16.

 

People usually guess me between 16 and 18.

I'm 5'5" and I have a baby face, I usually get read as a high schooler which isn't awful, I guess. I have friends whom people still think are in middle school even though they're nearly twenty. Dunno if ED has affected this, the main reason I didn't grow when I was younger was due to my anemia.


After all, is not a real Hell better than a manufactured Heaven?

I'm 35 and usually pegged for no older than 25.  I'm back in school and I'm even occasionally mistaken for a regular-age college kid.  Sometimes it's useful because people underestimate me, but getting disregarded in some situations is infuriating.

Yes about 10 years younger not because of how I dress or act which I do both as an adult woman.

I'm 22 (about to be 23) and 5'7 and I've been getting the "you look so young!!" comment my whole life. I still get carded even though I've been legal in my province for almost 5 years. Sometimes I get offended, but mostly I try to take it as a compliment. I'd rather look young than old haha

I'm 28 and get id'd for lottery tickets!! The fuck..you have to be 16 in the UK. It's flattering but also...wow. Every pub, club and offy I get id'd at too (usually because I buy marshmallows when I buy vodka ha-ha).

It's annoying at work, because I work in a university and I go into committee and budget meetings and people either assume I'm a lost student or that I'm there to make coffee...fuck off mate, I'm here to tell you you've overspent and I'm taking the overspend from your next semester's budget so unlucky you can't go on a fucking jolly to a conference in California.
