I have the dreaded baby face. Sure that sounds great when your 60, but when you're 23 and still getting carded at are rated movies or bars, it gets a little embarrassing. Not to mention, what normal guy would be attracted to someone who looked like a kid? Anytime I meet a guy I like, we hit it off, then suddenly he'll say something like "you're so adorable, you remind me of my little sister" or "Wow you're 23? I thought you were 12!"
Would you go out with a girl who looked like a teenager?
And what could I do to look more mature? Does hair or clothes matter? Also, I don't really wear makeup. Just concealer sometimes when I get dark circles under my eyes. Should I start?

I don't know if this is going to help you coming from a girl's perspective, but I'll try.
I always thought I looked younger than I actually was, too. Though I guess I always appeared to be older to people (like when I was 15-16, everyone thought I was at least 18), I really think makeup was the key thing making me look older. I had the body of a 12-year-old for the longest time in middle and high school, and got told so by some guys.
Luckily, my body and face have both changed since then and are only getting better, so I'll say this: it takes time but you will get there. Makeup can do wonders, so I would give it a whirl if you're comfortable enough to try it out. There's several how-to's and tutorials online that you can look up that are for specific face shapes and features (close-set eyes, thin mouth, etc.) Clothes don't really matter, as long as you're not wearing those baby-doll tops that were big a few years ago because those tend to make a girl look much younger. Of course if you dress more maturely, you're going to come off as being older. Hair matters as long as you're sporting a style and color that flatter your face shape and tone (for example, short hair and blond hair have the tendency to make me look chubbier than I really am: no thank you.).
And don't sweat the comments some of those guys are making. I once had a boyfriend that made fun of my boobs all the time, and it took a toll on my self-esteem. Despite having "childlike" features, I managed to get boys in high school because everyone is attracted to different features and things. The guy I'm with today sometimes gets told he looks like a kid when he gets a haircut, so I'd say I don't have much to worry about these days :-) Hahaha.1
