    I’m 24, and I think I look my age, but I always get carded for cigarettes/alcohol. I guess I look under 19 since I still get carded for cigarettes.

    Here’s a pic. You decide, haha.

    I’m 27, and occasionally I get asked what grade I’m in. 

    To me, I think I look like I’m in my early 20’s.

    I’m 21.  I picked that I look younger, this has only started recently though.  I don’t thnk I do but sometimes I get 14/15.  I freak out at this.  Apparently I have a “young face”.  What’s weird is that when I was 14, everyone thought I was 18.  So it’s swings and roundabouts.

    I should add though, that partner’s have always thought me to be a tad older (but only by one or two years)

    I work on a college campus and get asked what year I am all the time.  I’m 34.

    I’m a teacher and when the students are in free dress I often get mistaken for them. I always get asked for ID (in Australia 18 is the legal drinking age).

    I am 20 (Will be 21 in September.) The age I look depends on my hair/make up. With no make up I look really young.

    In this photo I think I look my age (maybe even a little older?) due to my bangs/hair style:

    But the way my hair is now I don’t really know?

    I voted I look younger though. My husband & I went to a bunch of high school basketball games this past winter to watch his cousin play. Needless to say I looked like I fit in with the freshman! :/ I am 5’3.

    I work as a tutor at a highschool, but I wear dressy/business-casual clothing so many people think I’m a young substitute, but I’m entering into my last year of college and I will be 21 this year. 

    Some of my students thought I was 25, haha!

    Here I am on Halloween last year:

    I’m 36 and people always think I’m in my 20s.  When I was 33, I was in a club in Spain and some guy started dancing with me.  He asked me my age, and for the first time in my life, I lied and told him 28.  He freaked out and called his friends over b/c he thought I was 24.  His friends were shocked.  BTW, this guy was 22.  YIKES!  

    In my experience, women age differently overseas. I’m constantly getting young girls (18-22) who come up and talk to me about America and then when I tell them how old I am, they are in disbelief.  DH is only 31 so he loves that his “cougar” looks younger than him.

    I tend to get younger than I am – mainly because I have a really round face, I think it makes me look less than 27! All the ladies in my IVF clinic thought I was in my early 20’s … nice one! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    @Sweet.Sugar.Rose:  Thank you! I can honestly say that I prefer when people think I look older. It makes me feel more “grown-up” and mature–I take it as a great complement.

    You are your husband look about in your mid-20’s ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s so hard to tell people’s ages now days!
