Do you look your age?

If not then what age would you say you look the most around, from taking people’s opinions on your looks to the way you see yourself.
Are you happy with it?
Would you like to look older or younger?

I say depending on how I style my hair and shave my face and dress, I can pass for 18 when I’m really 21. Other days when dressing up and comb my hair you would confuse me with someone in their mid 20s

  • No. Most of the time I look like a 12 year old. Whenever anyone guesses my age, they guess 12.
    The only time I look older is when I straighten my hair (which is only a few times a year). I finally look like a high schooler when my hair is straightened. But the thing is I don't straighten my hair often. So usually I have tight thick curls stuck up into a bun and that really doesn't help the fact that I already look younger than what I really am.

    So most of the time, I undeniably look like a 12 year old. It's annoying. People always tell me I'll appreciate when I get older, which is probably true, but still, no senior in high school wants to keep getting mistaken for a middle schooler :/

    • Lol yeah. High school will pass soon and later down the road you ARE going to appreciate how young you look.

  • I'm 23, most people say I look younger..
    the lowest I've gotten, yet, is 16. ^.~

    To be honest I'd rather look younger
    than older, so that's fine for me.

    As long as it's not all the way down
    to a prepubescent boy, that's be
    sort of weird.

    DO I think I look my age? I'm not sure
    what people my age is "supposed" to look
    like, but I guess I do agree that I may
    look slightly younger.. perhaps. ^.^

  • Most people think I am my friend's younger sister...
    But I'm really a year older than my best friend. xD

    Everyone thinks I'm anywhere from 17 to 20, depends on whom you ask...
    But I'm 26.

    • That’s pretty cool. People who look younger also have a youthful vibe to them. That includes people up in their 30s as well looking 10 years younger.

    • Yeah... I've been told that - about the vibe thing...
      ^-^

  • People say I look 16, 17, 18, or 19. The age I usually get mistaken for is 17 or 18. The youngest I've gotten was 14, oldest is 26. (26 shocked me, because the oldest I got prior to that was 21.)
    I guess I'm happy with it because a lot of people like to look younger.
    I'm fine with looking younger, so I would like to stay looking young.

  • most people would say i look like i'm in my mid twenties, without any make up... but that number's recently been creeping up towards my actual age... i'm not exactly happy about that. I haven't really done a lot in my life... so the illusion of youth makes me feel less unfulfilled... a little bit, lol

  • I often get mistaken for a 15-17 year old (even by my relatives). I am 23. Probably because I am short and I have chubby cheeks.

  • No I don't look my age.

    A lot of people say to me they think I look late twenties - early thirties. I actually just turned 22. Admittedly, when I have my glasses on I do look older.

    I would love to look younger than I am. I hate looking like an older :(

    • i dunno... maybe it's just a good picture... but you look like you're in your early 20's in your profile pic
      ... well, purely going off the physicality... however, your tone makes you seem a few years older...

      at first i couldn't figure it out... but yeah... you look "tired"

    • It is mostly my approach that ages me. I run a team so when a problem comes I just take it and sort it, I use fairly good English.
      Haha I suppose that's what happens when you work mon-fri 9-5, evenings and Saturdays :p (I have multiple jobs). I do suffer with insomnia as well. None of these things help haha

  • Well I'm 21 now and sometimes people tell me that i look like I'm still in high school and sometimes they tell me I look between 24 or 25. I asked my coworkers why they thought I was older and they said its because of the way I act. According to them I act really mature and think like someone older than what they expect a 21 year old to think like.

    • Yup sometimes a girl can look real young but her persona reflects someone of older age. When you mix those two together you get mixed answers. Now if you acted naive and playful while still looking real young there’s no doubt people will believe you are 14 or 15.

    • Yeah I agree. My cousin fits what you just described she's 23 and they mistake her for 16 or 17 buts its because she's playful and naive. I on the other hand am the opposite, so yeah that's why I get mixed answers.

  • I'm 17, and I've been told I look anywhere between 14 and 24.

  • I'm 16
    When I'm lazy and wear a random hoodie, gym shoes and my side ponytail I look like 13 LOL
    When I wear leggings, a push-up bra and makeup I could pass for like 19.
    Overall id say I look my age.

  • Noope. Actually me and my little sister have been confused for YEARS. I'm 19 and she's 14, people always think I'm 13 years old while they think she's 20. Always saying "Are you starting high school next year?" I have a bit of a baby face...

    • You know it totally varies from person to person. I find that rounder and thinner faces get mistaken to be way younger than the actual person’s age. Squarer faces with prominent jawlines are mostly noticed to be matured so therefor they are guessed to be of older age. It also depends on how short or tall you are. My sister who is like 5’9 is only 15 and gets mistaken to be 18 years old. If you were to shrink her down she would definably fit the age group between early teens.

  • I frequently get told I look older than I actually am. I'm 21, but usually get told I look 23-24. I think this is mostly due to the way I act, and that I'm fairly tall. My lifestyle is more similar to an old man than most people who're 21 years old and I'm 6' tall.

    • well just the other day i met this Asian guy who literally looked as if he was 16 or 17. Man was I wrong. He was 24 already with a triple A job. And just by the way he expressed himself with his street knowledge…yeah definitely 24 lol. Asians never age.

    • That's true. Asians to me always look younger than they really are.

  • I've always been mistaken for older than I really am, as I have been though of as an adult multiple times when I was still 15. I don't really mind it and am content.

  • I'm almost 30 and most recently someone said they thought I was more like 26. most people tend to think I'm 3 or 4 years younger sometimes more which I think is very nice. :)

    • hahaha that same thought of dressing like those swag addicts and pretending like I’m a 17/18 yr old high school senior pops up lol. I would just have more experience and knowledge than most of those punks XD\

      totally would love to go back to high school and mess around this time.
