Just wondering whether it's normal for people to grow into their looks later on in life, like their early/mid-20's? Most people who grow into their looks that I know of usually grew into around their late teens. Around 17, 18 and 19. But for me it's only happening around now. I'm 22.

Yes, completely normal. I was a geeky, skinny kid who had little self-esteem and I got picked on. As I grew up, I did become more attractive but that didn't really matter until I actually started improving my self-esteem. I feel very attractive on most days and there is no way I would have ever expected to hold that opinion of myself when I was young.
I know others that say the same. I have a friend who said he was a chubby kid, and apparently had quite the belly on him in High School until he reached his senior year. While he had the belly he felt he received little attention from girls, but when he lost it and muscled up, he was quite the playa-pimp. He is quite good-looking so it is hard for me to imagine him not having girls interested in him, but that was the case.1
