There’s a small downside to looking really young though! My bestie and I were just discussing this recently.

She has a baby. She’s 25 but still looks about 18 and she gets weird looks like as if she’s a teen mom.

When she was pregnant and attending one of those antenatal classes another woman made a snide remark about how glad she was to not be a ‘teen mom’ cos it would be so hard… My friend had to say I’M 25!! Turns out the other mom-to-be was an old looking 22 year old haha.

I have that fear too… We plan on having kids at around 27 and I still see myself being baby-faced haha.

I’m 27 and I haven’t been carded in at least a year. It went from happening all the time to almost never around 24. legal age for my location is 18 though.

I’m in my late 30’s and occasionally get carded at liquor stores and bars. Most of the time it’s by people who seem like they card everyone, so I don’t place too much stock in how youthful I look based on this.

14-15  I wasn’t even trying to, but I would go out to dinner with adults and get asked what I wanted. Dad was upset, lol.

Of course I still get carded at the ‘we card every one’ places.

I stopped being carded at Around 27-28. Nowadays (I’m 31) I thank people when they card me. Haha

I used to buy alcohol no problem at 16/17 and didn’t really get ID-ed in my teens at all. Drinking age here is 18. Now I’m 25 and in the last 2 years I’ve been asked all the time when I buy in supermarkets – even when I’m doing a £100 food shop. I don’t get asked in bars though.

I’m 32 and am still carded often, especially in liquor stores,   which is annoying.

In the UK they have to ID anyone who looks 25 and under. Legal drinking age is 18. I’m 31 and stopped getting asked for my ID about a year ago so I must have started to look my age 🙁

I don’t get carded much anymore, only once (while we were overseas) in the past couple of years. I am 24.

FutureDrAtkins:  Here drinking is legal at 19. I’m still being carded for everything and I’m 29 in a week. Most people say I look about 17-19 so I’m sure I’ll be getting it for a couple more years.

Drinking age is 18 in Australia and I have been carded a few times, I’m 22 now and don’t get it anymore. The last time was actually Fiance and I’s first date. We went to get a few drinks before going dancing and I got carded, I was 19 though!
