sorry if this whole thing sounds stupid but im just getting very tired of being mistaken as a tween, (13-14 years old) Im 17 years old, and I can pass as a 13 year old. Im about 5'3 and a half (where I live most girls are 5'5) and while thats not terribly short, combined with my appearance, its enough. It's just so frusterating being mistaken as a young 13 year old. Im so tired of people remarking about how I look like a grade 9. And I dont know what to do. Wearing Mascara and and eyeshadow makes me look like a 15 year old at least but I dont usually wear make-up cause I dont like the extra attention I get when I do, and I feel more self conscious. Anytime someone asks me how old I am its awkward because they are always suprised at how old I actually am. Does anyone else have this problem? any ideas on what I could do if anything?
