I've looked like I'm 17 since I was 12, I'm 19 now and I hope I look older in a few years.

In childhood, I was relatively tall for my age, which made me look a bit older: When I was 13, most peole thought I was about 16.
Now I'm 19; and I still look like 16 :wink: .

I'm 20, and I've been mistaken for 13. The average guess is around 15-16.

A 20 year old girl told me yesterday she thought I was 16 first time she saw me.

But people generally say I look like I'm in my early 20s.

(I'm 30).

I still get asked for an ID sometimes so I guess I look younger than I am.

I'm 33, people often mistake me for a college student. Looking younger seems to run in my family.

Assuming a conventional school year, I enroll at two years below the usual age. That alone would not be much of a problem if I did not look younger than even some of those three years below, which currently singles me out as the (high school) senior who can pass as a slightly taller freshman. However, this does not bother me much because this probably means I age more slowly than most people expect. (A nice bonus is the fact that I need not handle shavers, because I still lack, "whiskers.")

On the internet, the annoying reverse is true. I have already had several members (not to be named) assume I was born two generations ago (1940's-1960's) and a current college professor. :roll: Why does almost everyone think I am over double my current age? Surely one does not judge based on the level of interest in the special interest.

People always react with surprise when I tell them my age. I look about 5-10 years younger than I am.
That's even with hair that is about 75% grey now. maybe it's because it's all staying on my head, my hairline has not receded one bit. (most 41 year old men can't say that).
I could probably pass for upper 20's if I dyed my hair. But I refuse to dye my hair, I get too many compliments on it.
Apparently, many women really dig the "salt & pepper" look on guys ;)

I'm 25 but I look around 18. This has to be an autism thing because I looked this up and plenty of the google links that popped up were wrongplanet threads.

It is hard to say what age I look, I'm 19 and I think I look my age and everyone tells me I look my age but when was younger people would say I looked younger than I actually was. I remember at school I was in the cafeteria with all my year 11 people and no younger years were allowed in early and as I left I got asked if I was in year 11 and I said yes, and I think she replied well you look a lot younger and that will come in handy in future lol. 8O
