Seriously don't worry about it!

I'm 21 (22 in november) and strangers usually think i'm around 13. So please, it's nothing to be upset about :rolleyes:

Don't worry about it, there are perks. Paedophiles make really good partners.

On a more serious note, I would advise not to grow a beard, because if you truly look baby faced and young then "beards" or facial hair can look quite creepy and weird. I'd rather just look fresh faced and clean shaven and a bit on the young side than one of those people who looks really mini but has tried to hide it with sidies and a moustache. Looks sort of farcical. Other than that, I really would not worry about it. There are more important things in life. Just have more confidence.

Looking young and being short is okay if you're a girl, there are no redeeming factors if you're a boy. I speak from experience

OK basically I'm about the oldest in my year, I'm 18 upper sixth (year 13). Trouble is I look very very young. I use to be super-short, now I'm still probably a little bit below average height but it's not that noticeable (5'8" - 5'9"). Trouble is I still have the general body and face of a younger teenager. It's especially depressing when people don't believe your age and you have to always make like it's funny that you look years younger than you actually are. I'm worried that when I go to uni in October I'll still look really young. Anybody else in the same position?
I'm 5'2" size 8 and look about 12 /13 tops - you should see the looks I get driving my car. Last week when i filled up with petrol swore I was too young to be driving until I showed them my id

I know I'll have the last laugh when everyone else is old and wrinkly and I will still look like a teenager but please give me a break and make me look even slightly adult!

I look young, maybe a couple of years younger than I really am. I also look like Sid from Skins.

I did feel for quite a while that I didn't belong at uni, and I still do to some extent. I feel like an impostor occasionally... But other than a couple of times early on, nobody seems to care except me. I guess it's all down to psychology and self esteem!

But yeah, in 50 or so years, I'll probably thank my ability to look young:p:

You'd be surprised, my mum's 50 and people still think she's my sister. It's uncomfortable. My granddad's also pretty old, and he goes windsurfing:p:

i know some people thats the case but most of the time its all about the lifestyle you've had (like food, alcholol, smoking, sunbeds etc) not about whether you looked young at 18

Ahh yeah I'm a guy btw. Thanks for the replies. I don't normally let it bother me, just sometimes it gets so annoying. Mainly because some stupid cow in the co-op refused to sell me a lighter even though I had ID! Just pissed off majorly, was embaressing too. They've gone totally OTT with all the ID crap, when the smoking age was 16 I had no trouble getting stuff when I had ID...but now they assume you're lying to them even when you prove that you aren't. **** off am I taking my bloody passport with me, I got a card so I wouldn't have to! anyway, rant over.

Thanks again.

We should all meet up, and go see an 18 at the cinema. It'd baffle the staff....And would be a little bit awesome.


Although I'd probably just get scared, and ruin the whole thing

Are you chinese ? If so, you will age very badly, and look young until reaching your late 40's when you will suddenly appear very old, as it's a fact that you never see a 35 year old one.


These are not the view and beliefs of myself, but an incite into the mind of the man with a head like a ****ing orange, Karl Pilkington.
