    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 seeming 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 think it's a good thing ^^ I'm a 17 year old girl, who's only 5'1" and doesn't wear make-up or heels so I often get mistaken for being even as young as 12/13! I think looking younger can sometimes make people view me with more leeway, especially if I'm being awkward or don't know how to do things, which I enjoy ^^

    I think it's a good thing when you're like middle aged.. but it's always a negative when you're younger IMO.. getting ID'd etc. I'm 17 & everyone says I look like 21 which is weird but better than looking about 12 aha
