I was 27 when I started at my job (28, now) and all my co-workers though I was 21. I just shrug it off, because I guess my age is hard to estimate. When I was in middle school someone asked if I was a teacher (I was taller than other kids my age at 5’8″).

For me getting a shorter hair cut and wearing make-up puts on years, when I actually want to look older, that is. My SO makes me seem older, too, since he is in his 30s and people assume I must be older for hanging out with him.

I get that all the time…and I’m way past 26-29!  LOL.  People say I look younger than the 27 year old girl in my office.  But mind you, she looks older than 27.  All I can say is, if you look young for age, it will work in your favor later in life when you’re in your 30s-40’s and can still compete with all of the 20-somethings and give them a run for their money!  🙂

I am 28 will be 29 in July

the staff in the shop where I work also say I look about 18/19. When I speak to customers and they see my ring they are like wow your married how long I am like 8yrs and they give me a blank look like how is that possible your about 15 .

I was with my dad at a car boot recently and I am trying to quit smoking and use an e cif. I went to a stall that was selling them but they would serve me. So asked my dad and they would serve him in case he gave it me and they didn’t want do get shut down. Last summer I was making my own roll up cigs and got ID-ed in the £1 shop for buying rizzla paper and a lighter. Haha I love the young looking compliments
