I'm just turning 18 but most people say I look like a 20 year old, is that bad?

I'm just turning 18 in October but most people say that I look like a 19 or 20 year old. Is that a bad thing? It makes me self conscious.

  • Not a bad thing. Some people typically look 1-2 years off their age. I did an experiment and on average, I look about 19 and I'm actually 21. So it's not out of the ordinary that you would look 2 years older than you are.

    If someone said you looked 24, you might have something to be concerned about.

  • It's only bad if you don't like it. I look way older myself and I like it. Makes me seem more wise, haha.

    • Why would you wish for that?

    • ..I don't know. Just to look older. I'm going to be 20 in a couple of months. I honestly don't know if I look it or not.

  • You age differently at different ages. So maybe it will slow down later and you will remain looking 20 even at 25.

  • No big deal! You'll probably attract older mature men.

    • I want to attract men who are my age not men who are in the mid twenties and thirties.

  • no its not bad because when you get older it will be a compliment when people think your older then you really are. When I was 16 people thought I was 14, because I looked young for my age, some people still think I'm younger then I really am and I'm 28

  • Most people are not a good judge of age. When I was 15 I was passing for 21 and now that I'm 29 people many times say I look like I'm 25.

  • Eh, you might age quicker or not "as well," but it's not that big of a deal.

    You can either accept it or choose to make a big deal out of it and fret over it, speeding up the process of aging. Or be youthful mentally.

    • I want to look younger.

    • change your hair style and the way you dress, sometimes hairstyles make a person look younger depending on the face.

    • You are a bit creep... maybe they you are looking like 19-20 because you act like good

      but really 1-2 years is nothing you speak like they say that you are looking like 80 what's wrong with 19-20?

  • I have the same problem

    When I was 14 people said I looked 16 and now I'm 16 people say I look 18

    It's sort of annoying but I guess it could help if I wanna watch an R rated movie or something or maybe go to a club.

  • No it's a good thing. Now people tend to think I'm my age or even a bit older since I act mature and dress sophisticated but a few years ago I would get mistaken for younger. I'm short so that also does not help. I hate being mistaken for younger.

    I would not think it is a bad thing. I hate when people think I'm younger than I am. This guy thought I was several years older than I am and I was very flattered though it was disappointing to tell him my real age because since I'm only 20 and not in my mid 20s he now thinks I am just a kid :( oh well
