    I'm 19, how old I act depends on who I'm with and where. I feel 17 at heart

    I'm 16.

    I look about 15 by my face only, but as soon as people see my height I look more like a 12 year old.
    Honestly.

    On the other hand, I act like a 40 year old man who's realised he has no fun in his life anymore. Basically, it takes A LOT to make me properly come out of the moral, introverted, slightly egotistical but relaxed person I am and into this outgoing person.

    But I really do not look, nor do I act, like my age.

    21 and a few months ago (when I was clean shaven) I got asked for ID when going to see an 18+ film That's why I've got a beard now (think I look better with one anyway)

    And I get told that I act like someone in their mid-20s :lol:
    beards do tend to make people look older, in a good way though Suprisngly seeing 18's is the only time i dont end up getting id'd

    I'm 21, have been told that i look between 16 and 20 but act like someone in their mid to late twenties. (my friends used to call me a middle aged teenager)

    What about you?
    Now, you see...

    No laughing lol! (sorry!)

    I think that you're thinking that those people who're thinking that you;re thinking that you're 21 (see ) that are thinking of this aren't those who're thinking of what i'm think. I think that you think you know what I think I mean, but I think that you don't think that! I think you'll find that you think it makes sense, though I don't think it does.

    Make sense?

    LOL :laugh: That's true, and there are some guys I look at thinking how did these lot make it to uni

    Whenever I've met older guys from sports and they've gotten to know me after while, they usually think I'm a postgrad student. Then I'm like "No mate, I'm actually first year undergraduate" They still treat me the same though, which is nice.
    I have to admit, although i lived with third years for a bit there were points (especially with some of their werid cooking methods) where i wondered how someone in their 20's couldnt do that.

    I guess i d take them believing you to be mature for your age to be a compliment.

    Yeah, maybe laziness just comes into play with that and they don't grow out of old habits.

    And for sure I take it as a compliment

    I think a lot of people have told me that on here. It just proves my point. :lol:
    I'm afraid it does, i did mean it as a compliment though.

    (Original post by Hrdee)
    I'll often be very mature about situations that somebody in my age group typically has no business being in, also I can get easily annoyed at people for doing things incorrectly, almost as if they were my own child. That's mainly just an annoying habit of mine.

    I chose 40 specifically, because I always feel exactly like my father who - guess what - is 40.
    So you're a bit of a perfectionist then? I get what you mean,used to mention things like interest rates as a teenager and my friends had no clue what i was on about:P

    I'm 19, how old I act depends on who I'm with and where. I feel 17 at heart

    Kind of... but i m not thinking it, people have physically told me what they believe my age to be, its that annoying sentence "oh i thought you were 17, you dont look 21" or "you speak like you're 25, you cant be 21".
