How old do you look ?

Ok let's make my eternal age complex into a fun game

We know we look younger, I'm curious of the majority on here, growing beard doesn't count, clothing or anything that may influence.

Physical appearance, the age your body is at. Bone structure, skin, jaw etc.

Assuming no one looks younger than 12 ^^ (and yes I've met the unfortunated above 25 looking 12)

Oh and state how old you actually are (small pics always appreciated) otherwise it's useless

Don't feel bad if over 30 you still pass for 17 - think of poor basterd Stockard Channing (34 Years Old), in Grease (1978) pleaying Betty Rizzo, age: 18

Ok damn the poll isn't right this is pointless... I don't even know how I should have made the poll for this to make sense... ???

Re: How old do you look ?

I look 35; act/feel about 29...

On my way into work, I got a big coffee and a pain au chocolat - hangover from Xmas party + train delays, I figured as long as I was late anyway...when I was served, the guy at the counter said, "merci mademoiselle!"

Re: How old do you look ?

As a child and a young man, I was very frequently told by a wide variety of people that I looked older than my age.

Now, I have the hair of a 55-year-old, with the grin of a 14-year old pasted under it. Not sure how to resolve that discrepancy.

And if I grow a beard I don't look older, just fat & ugly. (Just being truthful - without a beard I'm somewhat-pudgy and ordinary-looking, which is fine with me - but I don't have a nice beard.)

Re: How old do you look ?

I'm one of few who looks OLDER. By my early 20's, most people already estimated my age at 35. I look about 40 now (actual age 31)

Emotionally etc. I am about 22, consistent with the 70% rule.

Re: How old do you look ?

I looked older than my actual age until my late 20's or early 30's, mature eh?

In my 40's and 50's I looked at least 10 years younger than I actually was.
People thought I was the mom instead of the gramma. That was nice.

But in the last few years my skin has really started showing my age (62).
There is only a little white hair at my temples, I wish it would just go white all
over so I could stop coloring it. I see people who are 20 or 30 years younger
than me who have lovely white or silver hair and I'm jealous.

Re: How old do you look ?

You said no beard, but I can't resist:
With beard: kids call me "uncle" from time to time, while the grown ups call me "young man" and use the honorific "you" in Russian.
Without beard: "Can I see your ID?" ***** you! I'm eligible to buy weed in Colorado.

Re: How old do you look ?

i just "have one of those faces" where i look really young. i think i look only disgustingly older cuz ive become obsessed about my appearance to a degree within past year and i feel i can see a wrinkle or 2 in 2 areas of my face and i feel my skin isnt pure or soft or smooth looking like 'everybodyelses' (in my opinion), not like i have bad acne or anything but it just looks that way to me...which fuels some negative thoughts but enough of that.

im probably gonna be getting carded til im in my 30s

oh, and for the life of me i cant grow facial hair. i just get dirty pubescent stache and sideburns, some stray hairs on my chin and that's it. and i have to shave (which i suck at) cuz it looks dirty. and even when im done shaving i still see alot of that vellus hair all over my face still like the razor didnt take that off and it looks like it sticks out to me in the mirror...most men in my family grow facial hair fine. why cant i just grow facial hair normally like other people so i can not give a **** about it for months at a time to get a beard?

Re: How old do you look ?

I'm 42 but my last class of 40 to60 yrs were shocked when I told them. They said they thought 26-32.

My hair is about 40% grey but I've always colored it. It's longer now than in my avi & I've been styling it so it's kind of a cross between Siouxie Sioux & Death from the Sandman comics. I still dress like a teenager/20something. Jeans, casual tops, usually band, comic book or geeky t-shirts. When I dress up, it tends to be on the Goth side. All black, flow-y skirts, leather corset if its clubbing.

By the way I dress you can guess I still act/think like I'm 16-20.

My avi was taken in August this year.

Re: How old do you look ?

I just turned 40 and look fairly young, my whole family does. I would say late 20's on average.

I get carded everytime. Even when I use to smoke. And I get "the look" like I'm trying to pull the wool over their eyes.

I tend to have a very playful mentality in general and I've always dressed super casual. Shorts, tank tops, flip flops.

Everyone tells me I haven't changed a bit since high school. Aside from a few wrinkles around the eyes and just now starting to see gray strands of hair.

I can't complain.

Re: How old do you look ?

I am constantly asked for ID. Most recently on Election Day I was asked when I would be old enough to vote (18 in US). I'll be 33 next week.

I occasionally add a few years to my age when people are talking down to me because they think I'm much younger than I am.

I'm attaching pictures. Yes, that is me dressed up at work. I love my job. It was for our superhero dodgeball tournament against the students.

The other picture is too big and I am being lazy, so here is the link. http://www.addforums.com/forums/pict...1556\uc0\u8236
