    Yea,
    Well, looking young might be great and all 50 years down the line, but I could die tomorrow, hell I could die tonight. Basically you get looked down upon like a kid, you can't even find a decent person to want to start a relationship once your 21 because you look 12, it's fucken rediculous. :ninja:
    Well, I'm sorry guys, I didn't mean to continue on swearing like that, but it really does tire me. I was at a casino just the other day, got carded 21x, and yes, I was an ass about it, because it's rediculous. They should really come up with age increasing lotion instead of the opposite.
    What are your guys intake on looking younger at a young age?

    I've always looked younger than I am(I met a cousin for the first time a few weeks ago, and she thought I was 13), mostly because of height. In addition to that, for most of my life I've always been in classes where my classmates were 2-4 years older than me. I was always more a pet than an actual friend. This resulted in me getting mad when people called me cute, and whatnot. I would wrestle with the closer "friends" when they did that, but it didn't really change anyone's perception of me as their equal in terms of maturity(before there are any comments on the wrestling and maturity, the people I hung out with normally wrestled and the like with each other) and interests.

    The internet has helped in terms of friends who don't constantly say "oh that's so cute" and the like because they don't see how young I look. Still though, hose friends I've made through the internet mostly call me their little sister, however, they do tell me that they talk to me more and have more fun with me than their biological sisters, so that's a plus. In terms of dating, my boyfriend(for those who looked at my recent thread, we talked stuff out) also looks quite a bit younger than he is. If he was shorter, he'd look like a late middleschooler, though his height seems to get people to place him in 10th or 11th grade(he's 21 and 6'2"). This has actually made it easier for us, as people are more accepting of us as a couple because he doesn't look that much older than me(and he's not really, only 4 years), just considerably taller.

    So yeah, I think looking younger while you're young is mostly bad, but necessarily constantly. I think the problem more comes from the fact that people, even after knowing your age, etc. I dyed my hair a few months ago to try to combat this(a friend had mentioned that she got treated older after she dyed her hair green because people seem to have a built-in idea that parents wouldn't let younger kids do that), and have had mixed success. On one hand, shortly after I dyed it, I went to to a pub with a friend for lunch, and the waitress assumed we were there to drink, and starting telling me about the beers on tap, on the other, as I mentioned earlier, my cousin called my age as 13. If you can get away with dying your hair(I know some jobs frown on it), that might work. Also, I've found paying attention to how you dress works well too. For guys, I know that I see guys that have the baggy pants(with pants around the thighs) and big white t-shirt look instantly younger than I would take them for if their pants fit properly(belts belong at the waist). Take a little bit of care with your appearance. You don't have to be constantly be dressed up, but make sure your clothes fit, aren't ripped, etc. I went to two very different high schools. One was an ordinary one, where no one really cared and the guys in particular looked sloppy. The other was an arts high school, and people took more care, and I saw the people in the second high school were treated more as adults when I was out with them.

    Hope this helps, but either way, you're not alone with being treated as much younger. If you want, PM me.

    I know it annoys you but don't worry about it, some peoples 'features' don't really develop unitil they are in the 21-24 mark. I think at 24 the 'bones' stop growing. Once you reach 30 or earlier you'll be concerned with looking like a little kid Its ironic.

    I hate looking so young too. I'm 25 but look a lot younger and people seem to treat me like they think I'm a kid. I get carded nearly all the time. I think the part that bothers me most (aside from being unhappy with the way I look) is the lack of respect I get from other adults.

    lololol i get this alot...like I always buy fags from the garage near me and one day she says "i need to see some ID"...i was like "really...i'm 18 years old and you just watched me walk out of my student residences to your front window...how old do i look?"....guess what she says..."15" :| :| :|

    I can see what she means though, if i wasnt 6 foot 2 I would look like a 13 year old haha...I'm not babyfaced though its got alot to do with the fact that I have the body of a 12 year old :/

    oh yeah and some lass said to someone not ling (i overheard her)..."omg he looks about 12".

    I kinda like it though :p nothing wrong with it

    Theres nothing wrong with looking young.

    I'm 23, and I've been told I look 40. I'm starting to bald, so I just shaved all of my hair off to combat it. I dont sleep so I have bags under my eyes, been in so many fights that my nose is deformed and decrepid looking from being broke so many times. And shaving, I could shave 5 times a day if I wanted to. Shaving is such a hassle and I fucking hate it. If I let it go for a day, it gets itchy, and all hair gets oily, which makes my face break out.

    I feel old too, my back hurts, my knees hurt, I'm achy all over, I have headaches every day...

    If I could, I would trade places with you.

    at 25 I still am asked for my I.D., and I've even been told "You can't by this ticket without an adult guardian." That got laughs, my friend told the attendant "Don't worry, the kid's with us." I'm 5 years older then my friend.

    I'm with ya!

    I'm 20, and I look about 16, and it depresses me when I look around and see other people my age who look about 30ish. Only time I look any older is when I grow a beard, but I hate beards. Bloody uncomfortable.

    I wish there was an age increasing lotion too :(

    EDIT: Oh yeah, and what REALLY depresses me is when the ones who look older are actually YOUNGER than me! :blink:

    I've always had the opposite problem from a very young age. Okay so it was handy between 13 - 17 but now it actually causes me a lot of embarrassment also. I'm 25 and having people mistake me for my friends mother is not fun at all.

    I'd much rather look younger than I really am.
