Do you look your age, younger than your age or older?

I was mistaken for 16 today, when a woman stopped me to talk about me walking everyday in the neighborhood for exercise. She was shocked when I told her I was 24.

  • I'm on my way to 31. I am often told I look younger. Recently three people have assumed I am in my lower 20s, one infact convinced I could be no older than 20.

    It is flatering of course, but in terms of my professional life, it can be frustrating, as people assume I am younger and wonder how I am in the position I am, they have no idea how old I am or my work history or experience. But becuase they assume I am younger, they find it hard to see how I am in my current job role and career level.

  • I think I look older than 22 and people have always thought I am older than I actually am. However, in the last year, some people thought I was like 1 or 2 years younger than I am... but they were exceptions.

  • My age, maybe. I think how old you look comes down a lot to how old you want to be, how old you see yourself and how you present yourself. Some 17 year olds want to be adults and act and present themselves like an adult other 30 year olds still feel like kids. Height might affect you

  • I'm 26 and I think I look about that old. Like two years ago though I got carded buying a movie at Walmart. Then sometimes I'll go out for a drink and don't get carded.

  • I look my age with my beard. If I cut off my beard I look about 5 years younger. I have long hair so because of my build not factoring in height, I look like a viking.

  • I think I look pretty much my age... but most people at my University think that I'm younger, probably because I'm older than the average.

    But maybe I'm wrong

  • I still get ID'd to see a rated R movie while my little brother (who's 20) just walks past, which he finds hilarious, so I think younger. Some people have thought I was older though, when they talk to me.

  • I look younger... I hate it. I blend in with the students I teach and so everyone mistakes me as a student and they don't take me seriously, plus I don't think a lot of guys my age KNOW I'm my age. I want to look 26.
