I'm 18 and look 15. How much of a turn off is that?

The majority of people I meet assume I'm 15.
I have a young looking face, and the fact that I have really long hair probably doesn't help.
I also don't wear makeup so that might be part of it.

Its just my face- body wise, I look my age. But I am kinda short and slim (most 15 year olds are taller than me lol)

I get asked out and hit on occasionally, but most guys ask how old I am first. Sometimes I wonder if there's guys who think "she's cute but looks 15" Even if they know my age. Personally, I can't really see how a guy older than 18 could want to date someone who looks 15, which sucks for me in case I am ever interested in someone a couple years older.

Anyway, I'm rambling. If you knew I was 18, but thought I looked 15, how much of a turn off would you find that to be?

(Can't wait til I'm 30 and this becomes a blessing)

  • As long as you're 18 it's not a big deal. What's more important is that your mind and maturity level aren't that of an 18 year old girl. Other than that, it's not a turn off.
    It's normal that those guys want to ask how old you are, just to be safe.

    At lest you'll age well, that's a good side to this.

    • Just so you know, it's not a bad thing now, if I know you and love your personality I'd have no problem asking you out.

    • Thanks :)

  • Where is the turned on option

    (Just making it clear: I'm not a pedofile)

    For a guy it is less of an issue if you look younger. It is more of an issue if a guy looks younger than he actually is (talking about during the ages 14-21)

    • How is it a turn on tho?

    • Guy's in the age range 17-21 ( I assume that's the range you wouldn't mind dating) can't tell the difference. It's actually cute if a girl looks young. (just not like pre-pubesant)

  • Youth is always beautiful,
    lately i have been leaning towards older women so... i probably wouldn't be overly attracted to you, but its not a turn off

  • It be fine we would know your real age who cares what anyone else thinks.
    It's more of a turn on that that you like Young.

    • *look*
      oh I don't mean as bad as it looks.
      I ment later in life looks like the guy can still have a beautiful young woman.

  • It makes no difference to me. I met this girl who I thought was like 18 years old, but she turned out to be 22 haha. I was shocked. I'm very much attracted to her as well, if that helps in any way.

  • I'm 19 and I'll be twenty this year and people still assume that I'm like 15 or just turned 15. I know your pain because it does scare them off on first glance but when they begin to engage in conversation with me they come to find that I am wise beyond my years.

    Look at this as a blessing rather than a curse:p I rather look 15 than 25 lol.

    But I do understand your pain.

    • Haha at least we'll be looking barely legal when we're 30. Not too bad.

    • Hey I dont mind getting carded for the next twenty years lol;p

  • Most guys like young looking girls. But won't approach jailbait looking girls.
