No baby teeth by 10
Done growing by 13, despite being short

Later on:
Glasses, slower metabolism, and can’t sleep past 7 AM by 22, and still looking younger because of baby face. Not needing skin care routine any more already to keep skin clear. I won’t look young for long, better enjoy it.

People have always told me I look younger than my age, ironically. It’s the baby face. I look 17, but physiologically I’m 28. I blame it on stress—can anyone else relate?

I was an early bloomer, and I look very young for my age.

I was done growing by 12 or 13.

I think you have your terms backwards.

"Early Bloomers" look older or more mature than their chronological ages. A girl wearing size 34D at the age of 8, for example.

"Late Bloomers" look younger or less mature than their chronological ages. A woman who has yet to experience menarche at the age of 20, for example.

I’m saying that I was an early bloomer but that doesn’t make me look old now which I thought the initial post was suggesting. I look almost the same now as when I was 13.

I was an early bloomer physically & I look old for my age. I started losing my hair in my mid 20s & I have a bit of grey hair now. I've been a very late bloomer mentally thou & still am.

Yes, I’m the adult version of an early bloomer. I know what it’s like to feel like you’re 28. I blame college.
