    I think it's a good thing! Without stubble I get asked for ID, with stubble, rarely get asked for ID.

    As a teacher, it's irritating that I get mistaken for a sixth former sometimes.

    Terrible thing. I'm 25, but constantly told I look far younger. I think I must look around 16/17.

    I used to hate it when I was in my teens and early 20s, I actually had people being quite rude to me about it on a few occasions (I remember once getting told that I wasn't a "proper" 19 year old because I didn't look it ). I like it now I'm nearly 30.

    I'm 18 but people think I'm younger... If I have a beer they look at me strangely! I'm pretty tall (1.92m) but my face and my skin don't show my real age... Do you think that looking younger it is a good thing or a bad thing?:confused:
    I apologize for my bad english (I'm Italian and I'll move to UK soon to improve it)
    I'm 19 and people think in 25/26. I know it's weird but that is how people would predict my age. I was at a wedding last year I met some girls, and they asked me how old I was, so I told them to guess. They said I look 25 and that I looked much older than my eldest sister who was with me at the time. I was only 18 at the time. I also had an interview this year, and the interviewer was shocked when I told him I was only 19. Once I must have been holding my baby cousin and people thought he was my child, so I guess it's better to look young. I practically feel like a granny at times.

    People usually guess my age correctly, give or take a few years younger

    I'd be upset if someone said I look older than my actual age

    People think I am older thatn I am, probably because of my beard
    Yep, when I was younger I had to grow some facial hair to avoid age-related embarrassment.
    Now I'm older I love being mistaken for someone much younger!

    Facial hair makes you look older

    It does, it makes you look older at first then my facial hair starts getting untidy and patchy and then I have to shave and look like a 12 year old again

    When I am well rested and looking fresh, I often get told I look like I am in my early to mid 20's. I still occasionally get asked for I.D, not as much as when I was a baby faced assassin though.

    Guess my real age:
