im 22, and get id'd to buy anything, not just the 18 things... call of duty (16), bonjela... worst about the bongela is the lady serving me wasnt sure how old you had to be and was asking everyone who walked past her till if you had to be 16... i was just like "no no it doesnt matter i have id and 21!!!" :| ! aahh
Naturally blonde hair combined with the inability to grow facial hair that is anything more than fuzz does not bode well for me looking 'old'. I dye my hair brown at the moment which makes me look my age (21), but if I didn't, I'd look about all of 12 years old.
I'm 24 this year but most people when they meet me think I'm 17/18. I have no idea why because I'm quite tall, and don't dress 'young' particularly! I still get child fare on the bus sometimes, so there is an advantage to looking young!
I look my age, which is good sometimes and bad at other times. I can go to clubs without being ID'd as thoroughly as some of my younger-looking friends, but I also have to pay adult prices for everything :/

People always tell me I look much younger than I actually am. wbu?
People always seem to think I look ATLEAST 5yrs younger than I actually am. When I was 10, apparently I looked 5; now actually being 15 (nearly 16), I also get accused of lying about my age as I 'look 10' (my auntie recently said I had the body of a child).
I guess I don't mind too much (sometimes take it as a compliment), but at times it can be really annoying!

I look younger than i am (I'm 21) but i tend to take it as a compliment , i'll still look sexy when I'm 40 hehe!! Annoying when we went to go see i think it was inglorious bastards. Me and my (at the time) bf getting id-ed getting the tickets (we were 19) and my sister who was 17 not getting id-ed, i tend to blame her big boobs tbh.
Haha, something similar has happened to me too. When I was 16, I was with my 14-year-old sister, and my friend's mum saw us in the street and thought she was my older sister . She also has bigger boobs than I do, haha.
I'm 20 and I've had quite a lot of people say I look younger than my age, anything from 15 to 19 . It was only recently though that the reverse happened when I went on a date with a 30-year-old and he said he thought I was about 21
