I'm 18, a freshman in college. I'm 5'7" and I kinda have a baby face. I barely have facial hair. Because of this I feel like a child. I even look like a 15/16 year old. I don't get any attention from girls. Most of the guys at my college are like 5'10 at least and the girls are my height or taller. It makes me sick. It gets annoying having to look up at everyone. How can I look like an adult? I work out, but I'm slim and my muscles don't get big. What can I do? Can a girl find a short baby faced guy attractive?

Lol not exactly helpful, but welcome to the club! I'm almost 21 and most people think I'm 16. I've even gotten a bunch thinking I'm 14 and one even went as far as thinking I'm 12! And nothing I do seems to change that lol. Dressing older tends to just make you look like a kid playing dress up lol. So as suckish as this sounds, I would just own the young thing. Just be confident with it, joke about it to people you meet so they know you own it! That in itself makes people take you more seiously because you're handling that annoying thing in a mature way.1

Make sure your hairstyle suits your face, any hairstyle that's round or boofy is just going to make it worse. Make sure you're wearing more mature clothes, smart casual etc. You can't change your height, you can't change your face. Everything else you can change, and the big one is your perception of yourself. Become more confident, no one's going to be attracted to you when you're so negative. Yeah, you might not be the ideal height, but that's cool, you've got other things going for you and there are plenty of girls (and guys) who are shorter than you.
Also one last thing with the height, I actually wouldn't want to bulk up too much if I was your height, it will actually make you look shorter. So don't worry too much about that. I've known short guys who have tried to compensate for being short by getting thick and it just, the proportion isn't there. Keep on working out, get defined muscles, but stay lean.1
