Do you look your age?

I just turned 30 on the 10th and I still get carded everywhere. I even had a cashier not want to ring me up at Walgreens because it was during school hours and she thought I was cutting class! Granted I did have I bookbag on, but it had my laptop in it. I don't think I look that young.

  • People have thought I'm older than I actually am ever since I was 13-14. When I was 16 more than once people thought I was around 25-26 :D

  • I think my age is finally catching up with me. But everyone thinks I’m in my early to mid 20’s. One of my patients asked if I was out of school. I asked her what she meant and she thought I was in high school 🤣🤣

  • No. It's a running joke. When I ask people how old I am (or, when my girl asks people to guess, which is a game she enjoys playing), they *always* give a number between 28-32. I'll be 48 next month.

  • despite being 35 and balding people still seem shocked that i'm older than 25. i definitely get carded all the time. i feel like i have a young face but figure the balding should be a dead give away that i'm older

  • I look a few years younger than my age, partly because I'm skinny and therefore have a thinner face than I would if I were heavier.

    My oldest cousin is 20 years older than me and we've met lots of people who assume, somewhat to their embrassment, that she is my mother.

  • No, I look a lot older. I've been able to get beer without getting carded for a while. even when I was 14 I didn't get carded to get into rated R movies, or to get cigarettes (sometimes).

  • I look around 25-26 apparently, I have always looked younger than I am but I prefer it now I'm older, hated it for getting alcohol and getting into clubs in my teens. My mate is 27 and has been mistaken for his 26 yo gf's dad on two occasions in the last 3 years, she would still pass for 20ish. My wife looks early 20's but is hitting 31 in a couple of months. :D

  • From the profile photo i would say you look much younger than 30. Happy birthday by the way.
    Not a very good example here but am turning 34 in few months have a very thick beard and bulked body and almost every time i buy alcohol the ask me for my card and it drives me nuts. I do understand the feeling and it sucks. You are not alone friend :(

    • Thank you! And yes, I'll always get carded. Even if I'm with a group of people, they won't always ask for everyone's ID but I'll def have to show mine lol. It's the cheeks, I know it.

    • Hahahah it's always the cheeks , god damn cheeks. Tried to cover them with the beard still get busted. On the other side it's kinda had a positive message that we take care of our skin and we look good ''young'' We are hot.

  • I think i do.

What Girls Said 37

  • I turned 35 this past Tuesday. I'm a tour guide in Savannah GA; most of my guests assume that I'm a SCAD student. The highest they ever guess is 26, and when I tell them, they always tell me that they were shooting high with their guess because they knew I had to be much older by prompting them to guess in the first place. Most people think that I'm about 23, and that my 28 year old sister is 35+.

    I also think it's funny that she has spent her entire life tanning, dying her hair, and gobbing on makeup; I never wear makeup, or go in the sun, and haven't dyed my hair since the second time I did so back in high-school. It's been proven that doing these things can age your skin faster, and dry out your hair making it look dull and brittle.

    • Did you mean you don't go in the sun much? I think is proven that the sun damages skin. I guess people want to "look good" while young and look worse past 30.

    • Show All
    • If I were you I'd look into those cheap houses. Where I live you'd need 5-600k to think about buying a house. There's no money in it.

    • I'm trying to get out of the city to one of the adjacent counties. I don't mind the commute, I'd rather have land and more privacy. I'm just going to buy a band new mobile home and put it right in the middle of an acre.

  • Nope. People always think I’m older.

    I had just started a new job and a guy came in, clearly stressed, his kids were running around like maniacs and destroying things. As I made his order I tried to cheer him up a little. I said “kids are a blessing eh?” And he sighed and said “oh I know. How many have you got?”.
    Given what I said, I could understand the commend so I smiled and said “I don’t have any”
    He replied “really? A woman of your age?”

    My fake smile dropped and I said “sir how old do you think I am?”
    “Um... 32?”
    “Sir, I’m 17.”

    We didn’t speak the rest of the transaction.

    I’m rarely ID’d. I was buying alcohol when I was 15. I’ve never had your problem.

    • Lol oh wow. He pretty much doubled your age!

    • Yup! I’m constantly being estimated in my mid thirties and I’ve only recently turned 25...

      That said, most people say I sound like a teenager on the phone.

  • Nope. I got asked to sign up for monthly donations to Scope (a charity) the other day and then the dude stopped and looked me up and down, stared for a second then asked how old I am. I told him I'm 21 and he said 'hmm, I think you're a little too young to sign up right now but go home, look at the website and show your family'. Like... what? 😂😂😂 Dude must think I'm like 16 or something.

  • It depends on where I am and how I dress. In the city I study in, I never ever get carded, even if I wear sweats and zero makeup. When I visit my family in Germany though, I always get asked for my ID, unless I'm dressed up and have my hair and makeup done.

    • I mean, to be fair, I often do pick him up from school when my mum and dad can't or don't want to. I had some kid at his school run up to me and call me "Raymond's Mum". It was very awkward. I told him that I'm his big sister.

    • People have also mistaken my little sister for me and my girlfriend's daughter. Despite the fact that we're only two years older than her. She's just tiny and childlike. (She's 146cm, compared to me, being 170cm)

  • Nope. I'm 22 and people say I look 16 or 17. I went to buy a bottle of tequila once and the cashier almost called the cops because he thought my ID was fake. I legit get carded ANYWHERE I go.
