My Asian mom is 50 but 28 year old American guy tried to flirt with her because he thought she was around his age. My mom doesn't have a "baby face" She is a typical beautiful 50 year old woman.
Do Asian girls look that young to other race people?
Then how do Asian girls look like when they are in their 20s? Like a 10 year old girl or something? 😅 Is this the reason why people usually call Asian girls cute instead of calling them hot or pretty?

They are known for having a youthful appearance. There's something called neoteny which refers the retention of youthful appearance into adulthood. Supposedly Asians are the most neotenized.
((Stephen Jay Gould objected to the ranking of races as more or less neotenous, but Gould argued that if one used the terms set forth by 1920s proponents of racial neoteny, "Asians" are "clearly" the most neotenized human race.
Ashley Montagu said that the "Mongoloid skull, whether Chinese or Japanese" is the most neotenized human skull, and Montagu added that "Chinese peoples" are "perhaps" the best representatives of neoteny out of the Mongoloids))

I definitely do think so! Same with my mum, she definitely doesn't look her age and I always get asked if we're sisters (meh..) lol. I think they definitely look younger and seriously I feel like they don't age till theyre actually "old" haha.0
