I'm often mistaken for being younger than I really am. When Justin and I got married a little over 5 years ago, I was 20 and the woman at the dress shop thought I was 15. lol

Lady (speaking to my mom in Spanish): Quinceañera?
Mom: No. She's getting married.

I didn't see the woman's face, but I'm sure she was very surprised. I was just trying not to laugh.

A lot of people think I'm around 16. I've gotten it so often I tend to play on it now. I've gotten carded at R rated movies, I've gotten carded for Nyquil, I've gotten told at a store "You're not over 18 are you?" I told them I was and then they tried to offer me a credit card.

I once got asked if I was thinking of finishing school. I told my moms friend I did finish, they asked if I had any college plans. I told them I finished that too.

I have quite a few stories. No one believes I'm 23. I once went to see a movie with my nieces, they are age 15 and 14, they had a special deal for under 18 gets in for $5. Since I was with them I got in for $5. My co-worker once asked me how old I was because they were trying to figure out who was the youngest in the company (it's not me... I might add) I said "15." He told me he'd believe me if he didn't know me.

A couple of days ago, I was fabric shopping with the two kids I babysit (at the request of the mom, who wanted me to help them start their own sewing projects this summer).

The lady at the counter said I had cute kids...

((Do I really look old enough to be the parent of a twelve-year-old?))

My makeup usually makes me look younger (because its "kiddie") but without makeup (and on makeup lazy-days), I've been mistaken for up to 24.

I'm 16...

I get mistaken for being way younger all the time. I'm 20, but I'm only 4'10 and have small features so I always get people at work saying stuff like, "Oh, this is your summer job!" "How old do you have to be to work here?" or asking what grade I'm in. Even the other employees thought I was still in high school when I started there D:

I look older than a 13 year old so I've heard some people, after seeing me, thinking I'm about 15/16 but I just get worried that I look too old :|

I can't even remember the last time someone cared to guess my age.

I'm thirty. I suppose I look thirtyish.

I'm 27 and people think I'm in my late teens/early 20s.

It doesn't bother me, I'd personally feel frustrated if people thought I'm older, boring and energyless, which sadly people who know my actual age think I am *__*

I won't discuss my age except I will say that I'm old enough to buy alcohol. I do get told a lot that I look younger than my actual age and I don't have a problem with it.
