How often have you passed for a younger age?
I have looked younger than I am most of my life. Until I was 27 people mistook me for my wife's son! Now I am 35 and I look my age, but I remember the fun it was passing for a kid. I got away with mistakes you wouldn't believe because I was "young" wink, wink.
I still hear from everyone that I look fifteen, and it's been 11 years since I was 15! lol
I remember being 28 and tried to cash in a lottery ticket. They wanted my ID, make sure I was over 18. Today I am 52 and do not look so young anymore, but when people try to guess my age they are generally off by 10 or 15 years. Makes me feel good!
AAAAALL the time. I am 26 now, and people still ask me what year I'll be graduating high school. I expect that, despite my wedding ring, I will always be mistaken for my husband's daughter since there is a substantial age difference, but I'm still wondering when I'll have to stop carrying ID to buy him cigarettes (have to be age 18) . Right now I'm pregnant with my third child, but since my first was born people have always commented on how good I am with my younger siblings. When I had to take off my ring due to swelling during my last pregnancy, I had more than my share of lectures from strangers and people glaring down their noses at these "young girls getting pregnant all the time" and other such rudeness. That said, I expect I'll like the fact that I look so young as time goes on -- my aunt is 43 now and people still think she's a college student .
Not to brag, but at 36 I am often asked about my brother (son) and as much as I hope she never reads this, my mother (wife). This may sound appealing to many but I find it to be annoying. I purposely don't shave often so that I can be taken seriously at work. I've found that in some cases, looking much younger than my age has had a negative impact on how I am perceived based on appearance and have to often "talk myself up" to show my real age and experience.
I have had this same experience. I have a full beard now and still people come up to me and call me a young man and I am 35. I think that I look my age now, but not to my on age group I suppose.
Agreed -- this is the reason I've only recently started putting my picture on my professional profiles online...people tend to respond better to the default than my baby face
Very often. I am 38 and am always told that I look somewhere between 22 and 27. Do I love it? You betcha!
Many times...not so much now...but until I was 35 I was carded and that was back in the day before they carded everyone like they do today.Now today...like I said..not so much!!
I have not bothered to make note of the times...............
As a kid, I often, appeared to be older or more mature than I really was.
Now, many years later, people often expect that I am 12-15 years younger than I truly am..........

Do people still buy Magazine subscriptions? If they do what ones?Magazine subscriptions are cheaper and cheaper and the only reason I see for selling them for 78% off is to ensure they have some kind of income at all....
