I'm 23 and I get told I look as young as 16. I take it as a compliment (when I'm 40 I'll look 30) or I just consider it good genes. But yeah it does bother me sometimes. I've tried so man things to look older and they all turned out completely useless.

Ugh today this guy told me i couldnt be more than 16/17, like not even a question a straight up rude hostile rhetoric. when i told him my age he was like "well you sure dont look that" like i had done something wrong.
Yeah dude thanks for randomly policing my appearance you look like you couldnt be a day over drink a gallon of bleach

I either get confused for an adult or a 13 year old and there is no in between. I hate my body so much.

All the time. I'm 24 and get pegged as 17. I take it as a compliment now.

So jealous of all of you. I'm 22, and people always guess my age anywhere from 25-31. It's really depressing.

I often do!  I'm 20 but I've been told I look like a high schooler.  I'm 5'6 but I've lost all my boobs because of AN and wear baggy sweaters to keep warm which probably obscures my "womanhood" - plus I often go out without make-up and that might make a difference.

I'm 23 and people are always surprised when they find out. When I go out to bars people always think I'm too young to drink and look at me weird.

I still get on buses for a child price, and about 2 months ago I was in a restaurant where kids under the age of 12 get to eat free so the waiter didn't charge my meal even though I ate off the adult menu :D ... I'm 18, turning 19 this year hahaha

Nothing wrong with looking young! I'm 32 on Friday and I still asked for ID! I actually secretly get a little annoyed now if I'm not asked. Most people think I'm around 24 but it can range anywhere from 18 to 28. Embrace it now, cause guaranteed, when it stops, it'll be a sad sad day

I've only been mistaken as younger a few times. The first was when I was 16, someone thought I was thirteen. 

 

And the second was when I was out with my parents (eighteen at the time) and some woman they knew thought I was younger than that. 

 

People usually don't get my age wrong but when they do, they  mistake me as older, like mid-twenties. 

 

Most people are pretty spot on, assuming I'm 18-21. (I'm 19)

I'm almost 17, and people love to assume I'm like 13 or 14. I guess it's nice in some ways but I always feel like I'm taken less seriously.

I'm 20 and a lot of people think my 14 year old sister and I are twins. We're both around 5'2.

When she and I go places together, people always ask if we're twins or can't figure out who is older.
