This is compounded by the fact that my Fiance also looks young. When we were 24 and 25, respectively, we got carded to see an R-rated movie!!!! The guy thought we were high schoolers trying to sneak in. Are you kidding me? 😛

I do! I am 25, 26 at the end of the year. I went to buy some new make up today and the lady kept talking about ‘teenage skin’ and what i should be using before i hit my 20’s to prepare the skin for being older.. i dont think she belived me when i said i was 25.. she thought i was 17!

It’s a compliment though .. i guess she said i had the skin of an 17/18 year old. Eveveryone says i will appreciate it when i am in my 30’s but for now i would like to look my age and not be I’D’d everywhere I go!

I don’t get comments often but I know I look really young. Looking like a “child bride” terrifies me! It doesn’t help that I’m barely 5’2″ (157 cm).

Last week I walked into a shop and the woman said, “Aw I love your jacket, I had one like that when I was 18”.. Emphasis on “when IIIII”. I asked her what age she thought I was and she said “well, 18”. She was pretty surprised when I told her I was 24!

Yeah, I’m 26 and everyone always asks “Are you 18?” or “21?” Oh well, hopefully I have the same problem when I’m 50!

I’m 27 and regularly get id’d when purchasing alcohol or scratch cards .. shouldn’t complain but can be so irritating. 

My SO is 35 so they must wonder what he’s doing with such a young girl lol

Im 26 and I’ve been told that I look 17. Seriously. Almost 10 years! Like I guess it’s supposed to be a compliment? I’ve worked at grocery and liquor stores and we are “always” supposed to card. So I might as well get used to that. People just doing their jobs. I like the places where they just scan your ID and be done with it! I think it’s just because I’m “small” with my baby face plus my lack of curves… *sigh* it just makes me look younger…

I am 25 and the oldest out of all of my friends. Everyone who meets me thinks I am the youngest. I legit had a 15 year old try and get my phone number while I was shopping at a store a few months ago.. I was so confused! I also get carded for EVERYTHING.

Story of my life! I’m 24 and am constantly mistaken for 16-18 🙁 I’m sure I’ll like it in the future, but for now I’m tired of bartenders thinking I snuck into their bar haha

I completely understand! People think I am 15 all the time and the fact that I’m 5 feet does not help my case but it’s better than looking older ?

In college I went to lunch with two friends and they were asked if they needed a kids menu for me. In my late 20’s I was asked at a gas station if I was old enough to be driving. I get asked if I’m one of my sister’s junior high students a lot. The latest was just a few months ago when the grocery store refused to sell my sister alcohol because she had a minor with her. I am almost 31. Luckily my SO is bald so I never seem to have issues with my age when I’m with him.

I’m in my 20’s but constantly mistaken for being 16. Always carded.

My fiancé is in his 30’s but constantly mistaken for early 20’s.
