I'm just turning 18 in October but most people say that I look like a 19 or 20 year old. Is that a bad thing? It makes me self conscious.
I'm just turning 18 but most people say I look like a 20 year old, is that bad?

Not a bad thing. Some people typically look 1-2 years off their age. I did an experiment and on average, I look about 19 and I'm actually 21. So it's not out of the ordinary that you would look 2 years older than you are.
If someone said you looked 24, you might have something to be concerned about.0
It's only bad if you don't like it. I look way older myself and I like it. Makes me seem more wise, haha.1
Get over it. When I was 16 people thought I was 21.1
You age differently at different ages. So maybe it will slow down later and you will remain looking 20 even at 25.0
stop complaining, most people in their teens want to look older.
It's terrible and you should end your pitiful life to avoid such shame. lol. jk
It's two years...lighten up some :)0
No, it just means that you're less likely to get carded. Which is a plus!0
it could be the way you dress0
No big deal! You'll probably attract older mature men.0
no its not bad because when you get older it will be a compliment when people think your older then you really are. When I was 16 people thought I was 14, because I looked young for my age, some people still think I'm younger then I really am and I'm 280
Most people are not a good judge of age. When I was 15 I was passing for 21 and now that I'm 29 people many times say I look like I'm 25.0

Eh, you might age quicker or not "as well," but it's not that big of a deal.
You can either accept it or choose to make a big deal out of it and fret over it, speeding up the process of aging. Or be youthful mentally.1
I wouldn't take it as a bad thing. Afterall I'm 18 and people keep saying that I look like I'm 14. >_<0
Mistaking you for a year - two years older.. Is it really that bad comon'
I get told I look way younger then I am.. its no biggie.1
Why would it be bad lol0
Ked older its a good thing sometim wish iIloo0
I wish I looked older0
I have the same problem
When I was 14 people said I looked 16 and now I'm 16 people say I look 18
It's sort of annoying but I guess it could help if I wanna watch an R rated movie or something or maybe go to a club.0
No, its only bad about the time you hit 25 and people say you look 300
No if you like that its your choice I personally don't like looking 15 at age 170
No it's a good thing. Now people tend to think I'm my age or even a bit older since I act mature and dress sophisticated but a few years ago I would get mistaken for younger. I'm short so that also does not help. I hate being mistaken for younger.
I would not think it is a bad thing. I hate when people think I'm younger than I am. This guy thought I was several years older than I am and I was very flattered though it was disappointing to tell him my real age because since I'm only 20 and not in my mid 20s he now thinks I am just a kid :( oh well0
are you wearing too much makeup? cause makeup can age you0
not much diff really
I'm 20 and people say I look 15 -.- I think this is worse ...0
