no, i really don't! it's weird. a lot of people think i'm still in high school when i'm already in my 20s. i must admit though that also don't act my age and i guess this is a contributing factor to why people think i'm a lot younger than i actually am. when i was in 17 and in college, my mom sent me to the bank on an errand and the teller thought i was in elementary. worst yet, about 2 years ago, i was already working and when we went to a rural church for an outreach. one of the people there asked my friend if i was in elementary. i guess it was because i had a hello kitty bag... i once was also stopped from buying tickets for jarheads (r18) so i gave the lady my company ID (i worked in a bank at that time and you have to have graduated a 4-year college course to work there), but my birthday wasn't on it, so she wouldn't accept it. good think my dad was there for "parental guidance" lol

I'm sorry that you have to go through such to prove your real age but this post made me smile.

Yes I look my age, but the weired thin is that I didn't look that far from how I looked when I was a young kid. LOL I must have looked too old for my age back then. Another weired thing about me is how I act. Like most people I have moments when I act so much like a child (specially when eating, cuddling and watching cartoons) and at times I act surprisingly mature (special when it involves money matters and decision making).

i don't really know..hehehe judge me..^_^ look at pics in my profile and then tell me if i look younger or older for my age..I have mixed responses from people..especially if their basis in knowing my age is my height then they will always say" you are just 22?! how come you are that big?" well i am sort of tired of explaining..everyone who sees will get surprised if i say that it is my age and i stand 5'8"..

I am actually older then what I look. I am short (very petite) and people tend to think that I am younger than I actually am and people are shocked when I tell them my age.

Hello...yes, like you, I somehow look younger than my age that the saleslady asked for my i.d. before I was allowed to purchase a certain 'beverage' one time. What a cute topic. Have a great day!

It really surprises me how many people guess my age and then when I tell them I have a teenage son ready to graduate from high school they are taken aback. People usually guess that I am in my late 20's when I am actually in my late 30's. It is cool to look younger! Their guess in my age might also be affected by the way that I act. Why act like my age? Life is too much fun and there is so many things to be excited about! What do you do to help yourself stay young? I try to work out and eat well as well as take the right supplements. How about you?

I look younger than my 32 years....especially now that I have lost all my pregnancy fat after the second pregnancy. One of my student's grandmother was shocked to hear that I had an 8 year old son (btw, I wasn't married early). And sometimes if I wear jeans and a short top, I am mistaken for a college student. But now that I work as a kindergarten teacher, I try to dress accordingly and do not wear casuals to work. But I still do not look my age....but I don't look like a college girl either.

I've gotten "I couldn't tell you were that old" comments several times. When I was at the University, a lot of my classmates thought we were just of the same age until I tell them I'm actually about 5-8 years older. I guess being short and petite (back then) helped me out on that one. After turning 21, I've still gotten carded so many times at restaurants and such. But then again, a lot has mistaken me for being older than my older sister. And I don't mean emotionally! I guess I look older than Sister.
