People who look younger than they really are...

Anybody other on HF? I'm 18 and most of people seems to think that I'm something between 12 and 15. Ok, there's nothing else wrong with it but sometimes it peeves when you have to explain to a clerk that you can drive a driving licence (the age limit is 18 over here), answer someone that you've already undergone a religious camp which is tend to attend when you're 15, and tell again and again that you aren't at a comprehensive school anymore.

Well, even if it's annoying it can be also fun. People's face can be worth of seeing when you tell that they are totally wrong And maybe you still look younger than you peers when you're 50 .

But show your face. I show my own so you can say what you're thinking about:

I was 17 when these pictures were taken:

And 18 when these were taken:

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

I used to be bothered by it but now it makes no difference to me. Now I just hope that people continue to assume that I am younger than I am :)

Heh heh, well, I'm 29 and most people think I"m still early/mid twenties, which is cool in my book. I think after having a baby that might change!

Everyone thinks my hubby is OLDER than he is..he's 23, but seems more like my it balances out.

You'll love it when you're older. My Mom looks younger than she is. It's nice when you're 53 and people think you're in you're 30's!

most people think that both my husband and I are much younger than we are....we're both 25...most people think we are around 19-20. I avoid make-up at all costs...which tends to make me look younger I think. And it also isn't helped by the fact that we tend to dress "too youthful and casual" as my mother in law puts it....which basically means my husband wears baggy jeans when not at work and my skirts are a little short We also spend a lot of time doing non-adult things like laser tag and putt-putt...not to mention all our sports. Anyway...we love our "young" look and lifestyle...although it has been a bit awkward since I've been pregnant...and Im a liberal who kept my own last name so uneducated people think we are young...knocked up...and unmarried.
