do you look as your true age?

August 24, 2007 12:07am CST
Do people guess your age correctly or closely? Base on their guesses, do you look younger or older than your true age? I wonder how many people have baby face look. If you look much younger than your true age (and you don't feel comfortable with it), how do 'style' yourself so that you look as your true age?

When asked to guess my age, most people's answer 5 to 10 years my age. Sometimes, I really have to convic them that I am an old man now! lol

Whenever I tell people my true age, they think I'm joking. Every since I was in my 30s whenever someone tries to guess my age they almost always guess 10 years younger. Which I totally appreciate! :-)

so, it is true then, that most people look younger than their true age. maybe you can share your 'tips' LCecelia? some of us here would like to know. :)

No.I look far more younger than my age.No one has ever able to guess my age so far.I never reveal it too. And friend ,Can you guess my age by my discussions? I give you three chances.If you come closer to two years I will give you the best response.Are you game?

I've seen your photo with your lovely family beside the horse at the gate entrance (watch out for the comment I've left..lol..) You look younger- somewhere between 38-44. your wife looks very beautiful and your daughter looks very lovely-she inherits a lot of your face... so my friend- let me guess your TRUE age - 48 (sorry - when i checked it out- it really is 48!!!)..LOL.. have a nice day!

I'm 22 but people always think and say that i'm 15 or 18. hehe. I fall under the baby looking faces. lol. its really flattering actually, but there are time that its a disadvantage, that other people [older than me] wont take me seriously, cause they'll think that I'm still young.

ha ha ha....i know how you feel. you're not alone. so many people out there look so much younger than their true age and it really bothered them. i think by mixing with much older people can transform your look to a much older looking face..i think. good day donsky14!

Hi singlepixel! It's been awhile, friend! To answer your question as honestly as I can, Well some people say that I look like I am in my thirties but I am already 41 but some days when I look at the mirror, I can see that I do look my age and sometimes a little bit older. I guess, it depends on my mood if I am wearing a sad,long face I really look older than my true age. Haha.. And I think I better do something with my hair which I have neglected for the past months now, I think that will do the trick! LOL! Take care and have a nice day!
26 Aug 07
hi faith! i really missed this friend! where have you been speeding?..LOL...(how many tickets did you get for over speeding!..lol..) oh yeah! mood can make you look different. i remember. so, put on a young mood and you'll look young-it's true! another method is the hairstyle.. (send us your photo with your new hairstyle and let us in mylot judge your makeover age...lol.. thanks faith! (it's still dusty here in the cyber highway ...lol...)

Hi Singelpixel, well, lately i start looking close to my own age because I sleep not more than 4 or 5 hours a day, and this is what makes one looking tired, and older for sure. Until an year ago I was looking much younger than my own age, approximately 10 years younger than i am, but now not anymore, and this is terrible blow for me really

Well I think that's quite a hard question, as no one can really see themselves as others see them anyway - but I am told not. I was 50 last birthday - most peple think I'm somewhere between 35-40. I think it is totally genetic - my ather is 81 years old now, and the ther day a guy in the pub said he thought he was 60!!! Guess I take after him!!!
27 Aug 07
wow Rosie! really? send me some photos...let me have a look!..lol.. tell us what else do you do apart from the 'genetic' thing. I'm sure a lot of us here want to know how you get to look so young.

Look just nice and fit. This is my true photo of mine at present time and I'm 46 years old as my birth date was November 17, 1961. At midlife age, people will guess my age normally at high percentage for exact figure. For my style I like to be MYSELF...even though no fans but living happily and go lucky. Thats all from me for now.....see you later, fine and thank you.

This is a very interesting question. Yes,I also want to let others study me to be young.Although I also already 22 years old, but I always want to let others say that I have 18 years old.Perhaps is does not want to face the growth the worry: The friend,wishes you to be joyful daily

Before I cut my hair, most people thought I was around 12-14. Now, they guess anywhere from 25 to 35. I'm only 20, lol. It's gravy though, I think it's my bone structure. Especially when I hang around my bf or our kids. I don't really care how old people think I am; I know my age and it hardly matters. Age ain't nothing but a number, right?

I am 50 years old, but everyone says I look to be in my 30's. This doesn't bother me one little bit..lol. I enjoy looking younger than I am. Sometimes it makes people angry, though. At times people think I am my husband's daughter. Someone thought my friend was my mother and she is six years younger than me. People think my daughter and myself are sisters. It isn't that I dress younger than my age. I think it has a lot to do with my attitude and positive outlook.

Most people dont guess my right age, almost all of them guesses much younger age than I am, they always guessed my age between 26-27 but honestly I am 30 now and getting 31 on december. They told me that I looked so young in my true age. Honestly speaking its really true that I am look younger than my true age. Well I dont do anything just to look me younger than I am, I dont even wear make ups and even lipstick. All you can see is me the face that you can see in the evening is the same face that you can find in the morning or afternoon. But i do take care of myself in other way but not in applying make ups and any products that can cover my face or skin. I am comfortable of wearing nothing when it comes to my lips and my face. All you can see is me the natural face of me. No foundation at all. Maybe one of the reason why i look younger than my right age is from my gens.. my father is 51 now and he is look younger than his age.. if you see him you'll guess him as in 40s'. And of course maybe the secret is being happy always, wearing a smile everyday is the secret of looking young..sorry i cant show my picture in here..

yeah i believe so. it's the genetic. I'm sure you do look young based on the other responses i received so far- mostly they said they look younger than their true age. cheers archer1811! i like to see people with natural looking face.(less make up)

hi singlepixel,i'll answer your question like this..if i think about myself only that how i rate myself as whether i look exactly the same as my true age or younger or older..i'll say that from the physical aspect or the external appearance i consider myself one or two year younger than my actual age and why i am saying so because people have said this to me..and even i feel the same..i don't feel i am 23(although going to be 24 on 28th of this august;-P)..and feel like of 21..and this is not because i have any baby face..no i don't have a baby face..but i still look a bit young because may be i am not fat and may be this age is like that only that people can only categorize you by looking at you in the age group of 20-23/24..and not able to judge your exact age..the other reason can be i have very little interaction with outside world and mature people and most of my friends are also kind of immature when it comes to age related things..like we all watch animations and believe in enjoying life in a bit kiddish ways..you may wonder but me and none of them has this much exposure to the outside world and moreover we all are a bit conservative also..so these can be the reasons..and i think having a baby face is not the only criteria to look young..like there are your deeds also,your interests,your way of interacting with people etc..well thats it from my side..have a nice day..:-)

well, you are actually right. mixing around with matured people can actually 'elevate' your young look into someone that looked matured. i think it is the brain that works (when hanging around with matured people) that affects the expression of your face. have a good day medstudents4! (good luck in your studies!)

try having extra sleep, drink lots of water, eat lots of FRUITS, less fatty foods, laugh a lot & last but not least - EXERCISE your face in front of the mirror a least 5 minutes everyday...& don't forget regular exercise too...let those unwanted sweat leave your body..
