    Congratulations! People would pay good money to look young again, consider yourself blessed
    Lol my weird genes means that to not have a GF looking like a paedophile, I'm probably going to have to wait till I'm 25 at the very earliest, maybe even 30. Lol yay...

    I don't have any advice but this thread is so relatable, same.

    I'm 22 and people always assume I'm a young teenager and it's patronising asf. Just this weekend, I had my eyebrows done by a girl who at the time of me paying said to my mum "she's really sweet" (about me) and asked my age. When I told her I'm 22, she was shocked as she is 19 and said she thought I was aged 16.

    Later that day, as I was buying clothes in a store, the lady assisting was chatting away to my mum and also asked my age as she was confused when my mum said that I drove there. It's terribly patronising.

    When I go for a haircut, the hairdressers assume I'm young and charge me for an under 16. Ofc that helps me save money, but I just don't know what I can do at this point to look my age.

    I didn't wear any makeup until 18/19 and my skin is clear most of the time, but makeup doesn't make me look that different (I'm not v good at it). My fave has changed/slimmed significantly lately, yet it hasn't changed anyone's perception.
