it's weird because people my age tell me I look younger, but older people (like over 25 maybe) say I look older so idk

everyone hates comic sans but I love it so idc

 

stats: 

 

age - 22

height - 5'6/168cm
cw - 139lbs (April 2021)
lw - 108lbs//bmi 17.4 (August 2018)
hw - 156lbs/bmi 25.2 (November 2020)

gw: 126lbs

ugw: back to lw (108lbs)

 

Bit about me: EDNOS since 2013. 123lbs SW in 2013. Gained to 154lbs because of ED and then got addicted to drugs and reached my LW. Recovered in 2018 and weight restored since then. Almost back to my HW as of August 2020.

All the fucking time. The older I get the more I love how young people think I am. I actually get mad when I don't get carded because all I can think is they're going to serve minors. 

 

I'll take looking 18/early 20's when I'm actually 27.

Always. I'm 23 and most of the people estimate around 18. Sometimes even around 14-16.

When I was early to late teens I got told that as well. People would say they thought I was younger than I was based on my looks, but older based on my personality. Now I think it's evened out.

I'm 33 and most people estimate me to be around 25-27.

I think it's the long hair and the fact I've shunned the sun my whole life. And smiling a lot always helps. As long as you tell nobody you're only smiling to hide your insecurities, of course.

I'm 20 and when I answer the door I often get asked if my parents are home, or if school is out today. People have asked me at my job if I'm old enough to even be working there. I get side-eyed buying cigarettes even when I show my id.

 

It's kind of bizarre, but I'm not complaining.


In a rabbit-fear I may hurl myself under the wheels of the car because the lights terrify me, and under the dark blind death of wheels I will be safe. I am very tired, very banal, very confused. I do not know who I am tonight. I wanted to walk until I dropped and not complete the inevitable circle of coming home

I'm 22 (almost 23) and I look 12-16 Maybe it's the giant bows I wear in my hair.. People always assume I'm younger in college. My professor was like you must have graduated early.. You are so young. Then I told her I was 22 and she was like that might work at bars but I'm no fooling her. Hahah okay.

I don't drink....

I dunno anymore.
I usually get told I look older, always around 17 and I'm 15. But at my school in one class, a few people told me I looked like a freshman??(I'm a sophomore)

I think it might have to do with the fact I'm hella quite at school but who knows,
