I'm 26 and I got asked for ID everywhere. Most people think I'm around 18. When I was going ice skating they gave me child ticket which is for 14 and younger that really shocked me especially cos the girls who gave the tickets were probably around my age. But I don't really mind it I hope I'm always gonna look 10 years younger.

The goal is death, but life consists of struggle,
The struggle in itself must be the goal."

I found an old passport photo of myself from when I was 16. I swear I haven't aged in the last five years (21 now)

I'm 20 and have been told less than a year ago that I look 12. That was an unusual occurence though. Typically people think I'm 15 - 18.

I'm 21 and get told I look anywhere from 14-18.


You cannot tell anything from a face,

Making an opposite facial expression to the heart is very simple.

It definitely depends on whether I'm wearing makeup or not. I'm 24, if I'm in makeup, I don't get ID'd and people think I'm my actual age. If I'm not wearing makeup, I get ID'd everywhere. Lotto tickets (you have to be 18), bars/liquor stores (you have to be 19). So I guess, if I'm not in makeup, people think I'm like pre-18?

Gods, I have no idea.

I'd like to think that maybe my face looks younger than 24 given that a lifelong aversion to UV has left me gratefully wrinkle free, but I'm probably just delusional aha

Omg I have a story just to explain how young I look. When I was sixteen I was at an airport and the TSA officer told me I could keep my shoes on....

 

...Children twelve and younger get to keep their shoes on at security. Everyone else has to take theirs off.

 

I'm in my early twenties and still get carded when going to 18 and up spaces end me =_=

(it's most likely just because I have fat cheeks)
