My tenant who had just moved in to my house told me that I am looking younger than my age. Lol. I was quite happy when she told me yesterday. I am 24 years old this year but she told me that I looked 20 years old same age with her. I know it was not much difference from 24,but I still felt happy about it. At least I looked not as what I aged. How about you? Did you experience that someone tell you that you look younger than your age? Was it a good thing? Please share with me,thanks,

yenwie It feels good undoubtedly. I can relate to this. For ppl kind of take me as someone younger than my actual age. Most of the times it feels good but sometimes when ppl do not give due respect I feel bit sad. I want to age gracefully no matter what... What about you dear?

Earlier this week I was told it by a colleague. I am 36 and she was talking about ages. I asked her to have a guess at mine (taking a big gamble) and she was shocked to find out the actual age and said she would have put me at late twenties. Was great to hear as I felt quite old the other day when I was thinking how my teenage son will be 15 in a couple of weeks. She isn't the first to say it either, although I can't see it myself. Must be the working with children that keeps me young. :)

If somebody tells me that I look younger than my age, I would change my clothes to look older ! LOL !!

That's always a nice compliment (as long as the person seems sincere) and I guess it gets to be more of a compliment depending on how old you actually are. So many people spend their early years wanting to seem older or more grown up...

Yes, I have been told that, it is a very nice compliment. My niece was carded at a store last week, the clerk thought she was not yet 18, but she is actually 38. That was a BIG compliment for her
