Do people tell you, you look younger / older than your age?

No person have ever guessed my age correctly when they see and meet me the first time.

My mom's colleague asked me when we had dinner together "where are you studying?" My mom was like "she's already working" "Ohhh i thought she's just 16!!"

Another dinner but with my colleagues, one visitor said "ohh you've brought a young one here", "no she's not young!! She's the same age as you!"

  • i get into embarrassing situations where i meet new people (both genders) and we don't ask each other's ages and they assume i'm younger than them, treat me like a little sister and tell me i'm young and not to worry about the problems i have. and then later we find out that i'm 7-8 years older and i just want to disappear ><

    i sometimes date guys up to 10 years younger and i tell them i'm 22 and they say i look 18-19 (their age) and i feel bit strange but it's ok.

  • Anyone who meets me or doesn't know my age always presumes that I'm about 30. Weird, since when I was a teen people thought I was in my 20s back then. For the last 25 years or so my look has been within the seven year range of range of 23-30. I'm not complaining. :)

  • Most people guess I am younger.
    Very few people guess close to my age (which is good).

    I feel great that I look younger, I feel so old sometimes :-O

  • People never tell me I look younger... But it has varies about whether I look older or my age.

    When I was growing up/younger people always assumed that I was older. Like when I was 11-14 people assumed I was 16-19.

    But as I got older and especially now people are starting to become more accurate with my age either they're exact or pretty close. Which makes since it's still the age range they were guessing to begin with... I just finally reached it.

  • Hmm.. it depends. Sometimes I'd get comments like "so how old are you? say 14/15?" and I'm like "I'm 17, thanks". But when I do get dressed up I'd look like I'm 18 or 19. When I was talking over the phone to a distant relative not long ago, she thought I was already 20 when in fact I'm only 17!

  • I've been told I look younger a lot. The youngest I've gotten was that I looked 14 when I was 16. I look the same now as I did when I was 16. Both my sister and I look really young for our age.

  • I'm like you. Most people assume I'm younger than I am. I had something similar happen where someone asked if I was still in school when I work full-time. The look of shock on the man's face was priceless, haha.

  • When I was a freshman in high school (Just last year) a ton of people mistook me as a sophomore or junior. I think it helps that I wear a lot of formal-ish, classy outfits. (Dresses, skirts, blazers, nice blouses) I also act pretty mature for my age.

  • Apparently I look anywhere from 22-28 years old and no one ever thinks I am actually 35 years old. I am more than ok with that!!!

  • In real life people tell me I look 13-16. On the internet people tell me I look 17-25, most of the time it's 21-25.

    I think it's because I wear eyeliner and lipstick in my selfies and that makes me look way older. One day I wore makeup and as I was walking down the stairs my mom laughed and said "you look 25!" And she usually tells me I look my age. So the make up definatly makes me look older. also the camera adds 10 lb.

  • They say I look older than my age. I'm 14 but people say I look 16. I actually like when people say I look older than my age I just don't know. As long as they say I look 20 years old
