  • I think it depends on where you're from. Most people around the 18-19 where I live look significantly older than that photo you posted, at least the males. Females on the other hand don't seem to change much after reaching 13-14. As for myself, I haven't been asked for ID since I was 12, as I could grow a decent beard even back then. (Of course it took awhile back then, taking about 3-4 months). So from personal experience, I'm going with no for males, yes for females. In general anyway. The photo you posted would be about a 15 year old male here.

  • Depends on the person. I've met people in their 20s and I thought they were still early high schoolers. I've also seen high school guys with a full beard and look almost 30.
    I knew a guy just out of high school, he was 19 and already going bald on top.
    It really depends on the person.

  • A lot of them act like kids, even throughout their 20's but still. With makeup & kids going through puberty so early I'd say that a lot of kids look and act much older nowadays.

  • Many do look very young. It depends on the person, though. A lot of the people in my grade don't "look their age" at all. Some could pass for 20-something while others still look 12. Being a teenager is just an all-around awkward transition. Some are lucky and end up looking like actual adults by the age of 16, while others... like me... still look like middle schoolers. At least I'll look youthful when I'm in my 30s/40s.

  • If we're talking about the attached image as an example, then yes. "Modern" men don't look like men anymore (in general). Both sexes are shifting to the middle, so guys become more feminine and women become more masculine. Not only in regards to looks, but also character. Men become crybabies and women become aggressors. And it'll get worse as time passes. "Be progressive they said. It'll be fun they said."

  • Depends on the 18 year old. 18 year old *boys* look like boys.

    I talk to an 18 year old Portuguese girl on Skype. She looks like a woman. And she can more than hold her own in every department. Far from being naive. She's a little pain in the arse :P

  • Agree but then again, what if it were the other way around?
    "Despite being legally children, 28 year olds look like adults."

    Gotta consider the grey area.

  • Some do look younger. Although they legally, biologically and mentally aren't. So no. They are not children

  • To me, young adults are still like kids until they hit 25.
    Then the brain switches and they become adults.

  • It depends on the person since people age differently. It also depends on the lifestyle they grew up in and what they ate and drank.

    My ex is currently 19 but he literally looked like he was 30 when he was 16. I’m not even kidding. He looked / looks WAY older than he is.

    • They play tag? They eat too much candy? They aren't allowed alcohol and don't enjoy it?

    • Show All
    • I never said they were children. I said they LOOK AND ACT like children. Exactly, she's asking about 18 year olds, they're considered adults aren't they?

    • Yes, they are. Some behave like children

  • Most of them do to me and then guys my age look 30.
