    have you tried everything? dress sophisticated...that always makes everyone look that much bit more mature and possibly older. also try getting a different hair style..again a sophisticated one. it might help, i know it has for some of my friends

    Sorry, but all this confidence stuff is *******s. Confidence is natural, you cant fake it, and if you act confident you just look stupid and people can see right through it.
    confidence is something you develop.
    if you dont start to show confidence in yourself then when are you gonna learn to develop it??

    I think there is call for a "We're 5ft, isn't it crap??" support group

    When I turned 18, one of my presents was in a big sparkly red gift box with a bow on it. I walked around with it all day and I wasn't IDed once! Shame it isn't practical..

    One of the girls from my school looked really young when she was 17 and wanted to go out so whenever she went out she just wore an '18 today' badge and a silly hat and she always got in to pubs/clubs without a problem

    i think you should try and wear heels. it will make you look taller, you can wear longer trousers and it will really help you look older. try smaller heels first and then move on to the big ones. im sure you will be able to get used to them in no time. what do you wear when you go out at night?

    im 5ft 1 and 18 and still get ID'd for pretty much anything!
    try to wear sophisticated clothes .e.g if your going out at night try not to wear a short skirt, wear black trousers instead
    i like wearing skirts tho so i usually team them with a suit jacket/blazer thing
    but if uve got ID its no problem! its funnier coz they dont expect you to be old enough n then u whip the passport out mwah ha ha

    ... and an annoying tendancy to call everyone "love" or "dear".
    Ha ha I do that, to be patronising sometimes I'm a ***** but it is a nice endearing term in my opinion ...

    If you really want to look older being busty would be a great advantage.
