I'm a senior in high school, but I bet I could pass for a 12 yr old. I actually kinda like it, 'cause I don't like talking to other teens because I lose the conversation very quickly. I am more comfortable with young children or elderly people.
Don't even ask about dating. :roll:

I'd much rather talk to adults than teenagers.
No, when I was younger, I always looked my age or older.

I've always had a bit of a baby face which is at least partly due to how skinny I've always been. Looking at my yearbooks throughout the years recently I've noticed that I really looked like a middle schooler throughout high school (12-13ish), and in my freshman year of college I know I looked like a young high schooler because when some cops pulled me and some friends over one night I had to argue with them about my age. They were saying "there's no way you're 18, you've gotta be 16 tops" and even when I handed them my license they were skeptical (they took a looooong look at it before handing it back to me). Lately though I'd say my face has started to look a lot more mature. At worst I probably look like a high school senior, though considering I get offered the alcohol menu now at all restaurants I go to I'd say I probably look college age (then again all the restaurants I go to are around my college so that could have something to do with it).

I'm 15, but recently was mistaken for a 13-year-old. Those two years make a HUGE difference.

People think I'm really older than what I actually am, which I have experienced many times.

I'm 16 but I have been mistaken for being older and younger. Last year when I did work experience one of the girls that worked there thought I was about 17, but when I went to a trip with guides and boys brigade that same summer one boy thought I was 13 and didn't believe me when I corrected him. I think the second one was to do with the fact I hung around 12/13 year olds and I acted like one, and the first because of my looks.

I look older, this was nice until the age of 20. Now it is a bit sad, since I get grey hairs now.

I'm 16 and I could pass for 19. When I was in middle school I seemed younger than I was. I pretty much looked my age, but I seemed younger because I didn't wear makeup, didn't have up-to-date hair or clothes, and was chubby.

Same here, but everyone thinks I'm 15-16...


I don't like it. :|
