    Once you get older you'll spend your life wanting to look younger. Don't worry about it to much. But maybe you can dress more mature? If you're running around in teeny glittery stuff and trainers then of course they'll think you're young, if you're that small.

    If you have a young looking face then that'll probably benefit you when you're older, as disturbing as it sounds an awful lot of the worlds hottest girls have young faces.

    By the way don't start dressing slutty to look older, just wear more mature things and act mature, that's all you can do.

    I have a really round babyish face, so people always assume I'm younger than I am, even though I'm 5' 7. I'm only 18 so I don't really mind it at all at the moment. I don't look young when I'm on a night out though, because I take time over my appearance and dress more mature than I do in day to day life.

    Also, don't assume you're unsexy because of your voice. I have a fairly flat-ish voice, and also what I think is a boyish figure, but I pump myself full of self confidence and it helps! Don't put yourself down... besides some guys like the innocent thing :P

    Your lack of confidence is probably a major factor in appearing younger than you are. If you are outgoing and confident ( I know, easier said than done but thats another issue) you will add years to your appearance. Get a funky hair cut, some decent fitting clothes and youre away. Never let it get in the way, it really is of no consequence. So what if you get id'd, everyone gets id'd, you show your id and go in, no big deal.
