I'm 17 and people think I'm 12. People think me and my 12 year old sister are twins, or they are confused as to who is older. And I got asked if I was in elementary or middle school when I was in the 12th grade - a few times.

I've run the gamut from restriction, over-exercising, purging, C/S, abusing laxatives and diuretics, binging...but I've always been too fat or inconsistent to be diagnosed with anything but EDNOS. Currently relapsing with b/p and restriction.

It goes both ways - I'm 22 and have been mistaken for a high school senior (17-18?) more than a few times.  On the other hand, a TSA officer once asked if I was the mother of two kids who were probably between 8-12, which means I would have to be what, 27 at the youngest?

 

I used to get mistaken for my baby cousin's mom when I would push her around in my cart at the supermarket.  Of course, I was about 16 at the time, and a 16-year-old mother is not unheard of.  We both have fairly dark skin though, and I wonder if so many people would have commented on it if we had been white.  :/

I'm 24 and I get all kinds of comments on my age! The consensus usually seems to be that I look around 19-20 but I have gotten comments going as low as 15. My sister is younger than me (she's 19) and people always believe I'm the youngest sister.

I'm 18 and, maybe it's my fat baby face, but on numerous occasions people have told my mom they though I was 13-14 when she told them I was 18. Of course, the opposite was said when I
was younger... Everyone thought I was older than I was...


I just chalk it up to being a rainicorn.

I'm 17 and the woman at the co-op ID'd me to buy caffeinated gum (the age restriction was 16 or over). :/ Can pass for under 15 to get child bus tickets though, which is decent.

People thought I was 12 when I was 17.
What 12 year old has DD cups?! When I was 18 they would ask me what grade I was in, or why I wasn't in school when I was obviously working. I would be at work, in the middle of a school day, and people would come in and ask what grade I was in. Duhhh use some freaking common sense!
I haven't been asked that in a while, but I've gotten enough condescending "aw you look so young!" Comments for my entire life.
I'm sure ill appreciate it when I'm past my thirties, but until then, the next person that talks down to me about my age will receive a very snarky response.
