I have been told once that I looked about 25 years younger than I am. My mom and dad look younger than they are too but not as much younger for their ages as I look for mine. My husband looks young too.

Being short also makes you look younger.Once when I was walking past the school some kid on the playground started yelling at me,"Hey girl,you better get in the school,"I was in my early forties. :lol:

I don't think that I look younger, but I was recently told I look in my 20's.

I find that hard to believe though.

I think a lot of the times when people mistake the age of Aspies for as much as decades younger than we actually are, it's not only because of looks, but also because of a naive demeanour and not carrying ourselves with authority and confidence, like adults our age. That naive, awkward demeanour is associated with young age.

I probably do appear to be younger but I know that I look really rugged sometimes too.

I'm almost 33 but I am constantly mistaken for being much younger. I assume that I look like I'm in my early 20s to some people, but I very often get mistaken for a teenager as well. I've been hit on by a teenager and had jr. high school kids invite me to play with them.

I also suspect it has to do with limited facial mobility, like botox.

People are often surprised when I am the oldest one in the room.

I'd say I look a few years younger than my actual age.

I'm 31, but I look (and feel, actually) about 7-8 years younger. People say my voice sounds very young too.

I'd say I look about 5 years younger than I actually am judging from comments I get, though I've been mistaken for being about 10 years younger than I am.

I think I closely resemble my biological age. I mean, I think I look like I'm 19.
