    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 look about 15 and I'm 20 >_>
    I think its mainly due to my height.

    I look like I'm 20 from afar, or until I open my mouth (I have braces).

    Apparently this makes people think I'm nearer my actual age of 18.

    Nearly always get ID'd though, although I'd get away with it when I was 17 cos I'm pretty tall, until I got braces last year. Prejudice :sigh:
    looking at your picture I think u could easily past for 20!!!!

    I remember working in primark as a 19 year old and a lady asking me if I was on my school holidays...I just said yes to avoid it getting anymore awkward!

    My 19 year old friend got id'd buying twilight...which is a 12, so they must have thought she could be younger than that ahahaha! That's her self esteem gone for the next 10 years!

    I don't know how old I look. People guess anything from 20 up to 45.

    I think I look my age, but people are always surprised when I say I'm 21.
    I never used to get ID'd when I was 19/20. But I do now :/

    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!

    When I was 13/14, someone asked me what I was studying in uni.

    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 :/

    I look younger than I actually I am, although the age I get mistaken for varies a lot. d:

    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 :lol:
