This might sound silly, but I seem to be really stuck. I'm 28, but for some reason only really young girls seem to fancy me. The 'oldest' girl who liked me romantically was 22, and the youngest was 12! I know that age is just a number, but still I find this awkward and somewhat creepy as well.
I do realize that I look quite young for my age. I think I appear to be around 23 or 24. But them even considering this, I don't understand why 12 or 13 year old girls hit on me!
I have tried approaching women around my age (25 to 30), but none of them seemed to show much interest in spite of them knowing my correct age. I have been in a couple of relationships in my early 20s, but they didn't last long.
I just can't seem to get the hang of it. Someone care to give me some tips?
P. S. I may be able to look a couple of years older if I grow facial hair, but I find facial hair too uncomfortable. It pricks and itches me a lot, so I always keep myself clean shaven for personal hygiene and comfort reasons.

That's just the life of a baby-face.
Most people think I'm 12 years old. The only guys who ever are interested in me are, you guessed it, 12 years old. Whereas my friends who look their age or older get hit on by appropriately aged guys.
If you have a baby-face, then that's why. I really can't explain the 12 and 13 year olds, I guess they're just bold? xD0

I get told I look younger too and have been in a somewhat similar situations.
What I notice, especially post 30 is that many girls are playing this "I'm too old nobody wants me" bullshit and obsessing over every possible wrinkle they may get on their faces. The other problem you're probably facing is the lower 20's girls are most likely college students and you obviously don't wanna waste your time "dating" someone who is gonna possibly transfer to a far off school in a year or so. That would be pointless.
It's odd too because we get these stories of how older girls are done hooking up and want to settle down. The other problem I see is they're limiting themselves to higher earning men. So if they don't feel you're gonna throw up a white picket fence and rush into marriage they're gonna overlook you. So you're gonna have to be careful and keep an ear out if she brings up something like how her friend got married because that means she's gonna be dating you wanting marriage fast!0
