Idk if I actually look young, cause to me I look my age, but I’m tiny and my voice is really high so I think it gives off the impression of being young. About a month ago, a highschool kid flirted with me and asked where I was going to go to college. I was like “I’ve graduated college, I’m an old lady next to you”

But then, I remember when I was 18 or 19, my coworker said he thought I was 26. I tried to hide my feelings because I was slightly offended lol

My husband and I took a trip to Puerto Rico a few months ago for vacation and as we were boarding the plane (I had a glass bottled root beer in my hand), the flight attendant stopped me and asked if it was a beer. Confused, I glanced down at the bottle and smiled and said “well it’s a rootbeer”. Then she replied “I was just kidding, I know your not even old enough to drink”. Uhem…I turn 30 years old in 5 months…lol So apparently I don’t even look 21. lol..Wow. Really??

 

Here are pics of me at the bacardi distillery in San Juan (clearly enjoying my drink..lol)

I have been told (well I get told alot) that I loook younger than someone in their 30’s.  I’ll be 32 in September and I have 3 kids and people are always shocked.  I think it’s a good thing.  I don’t get carded or anything though because I look older than 18.  But women age reall well in my family so I have good genes. 🙂

Fi looks super young for his age… he is younegr than me by like 2 years (give or take) and he looks much younger.  4/5  years ago when he was 25, a lady thought he was 15 LOL.  She couldn’t believe ds was his son. People tell me I look like I am robbing the cradle!

@peachacid:  Hey I know that this was 2 months ago but I just wanted to say that I have my insecurities too and when I said I was fat I actually wasn’t but I understand that it is hard to see yourself as evryone else does. I have lost 100+ pounds and I still dont see too much improvement. If I were you I would focus on the positives like the great significant other that you have that chose to be with you always. He sees a lot in you that you don’t see I know it sounds crazy but try to see what he sees in you. Please do not compare yourself to other women because you have been made to be you not the other women. As far as clothing and stuff look at magazines or clothes online. I personally have found TLC (the channel) do not know if you have it to be helpful as well. If you look young girl flaunt it and love it!! Like the other ladies have said when we get old we will wish we were younger..atleast I will.

 

This is me..Ill be 31 in a couple of weeks..

I’m 23. I’m still young, but I get told I look younger, like 18/19 ish. It’s fine. I don’t dress like a young teenage hipster. As a matter of fact, I love pencil skirts and heels and whatnot. I love collared button-ups. I feel like I’m pretty mature for my age anyway, so it doesn’t bother me. I’m actually hoping that I can hold onto the fact that I look younger in 10 years….hoping.

Don’t be hard on yourself though! It can be a good thing to look a bit younger.

I got ID’d a couple of years ago at 29.  In the UK that is something quite spectacular I assure you, legal age to drink is 18, and they ID anyone that looks under 21! lol.  When I’m with my group of friends here, I am always persumed to be the yongest of the group.  I’m 31, and the others are ranging in age from 24 to 28.  I blame it on my round cheeks and the fact I always sit in the shade… I’m half vampire I think hehe!

I’m 29 and every year at the start of a new college team in September my students always ask me without fail. If I’m old enough to teach! I still have to carry I.D everywhere and can get a child’s fare (under 16) on the bus Embarassed if i forgot to correct them.

It doesnt seem to matter if I wear make -up or not. Do my hair or the clothes I wear.

My mum is 50 and she doesn’t look a day over 30 so I guess it’s in the genes. #

I don’t think I look much younger than I am, but I have a very young voice. It’s my “polite” voice, like when you call someone or a place that you aren’t familiar with and want to sound very polite and nice. I’ve actually also been told, on numerous occasions, I should even work for one of those sexy phone chat companies LOL! I guess I sound like a squeaky 18-year old. My friends and my SO know me as actually having a deeper, older voice when I’m comfortable. But if I’m at all uncomfortable, my voice raises a few octaves and BAM, there go about 7 years.

In a related note, I just recently met a woman who I *Thought* was about 30, 32 and then she told me she’s actually 48. I couldn’t comprehend it. She looked SO. YOUNG. There’s no way she was 48, her skin was *flawless*, her body was *perfect*, her hair was *fabulous*. She dressed mature, but fun and flirty. THAT’S what I want to be when I turn 48!! LOL.

I’m in my early 30’s and was psyched when I got carded at a concert last weekend!  I’m like no problem here’s my ID!  I’m Italian, so we age very well. Smile
