I'm almost 28 and I was told yesterday by the lady teaching my class for work that she would card me and thought I looked 18

Zoidberg: "I saw a frilly cake in here you'd remember all your life! I know I will. Late at night it haunts me with its frosted beauty. Order the cake, dammit!"

I'm 5'2'' and well over 21 but people think I'm in junior high. I've been asked if I want a kids' menu (12 and under) at multiple restaurants. People always guess my age at 13 or 14. I'm cool with it though, I like looking younger than I am because I don't want to be an adult.

I'll turn 17 in a few days and people say I look 14 without makeup. Guess I'll look younger when I'm old

I'm 23 and people sometimes say I look younger in my pictures, but I don't know if they're just being flattering or not.

I suppose it helps that I have virtually no wrinkles yet, whereas most girls my age seem to by now, though it's because I rarely show expression in my face.

Well yes, even though I don't look juvenile at this point, most people wouldn't guess my age. However, at my most critical weight I was certainly catching up with it.

I'm 23 5'1 and people say I look eighteen... "Take out my piercings I'll look like I'm 14"

                               Those who truly care can be divided into two categories: those who understand us, and those who forgive our worst sins. Rarely do we find someone capable of both.
