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
Wow! You are so pretty! haha and I LOVE the superhero costume

Re: How old do you look ?

I am terrible at seeing myself objectively however due to the self defeating nature that I have I would say I look older than my age. I noticed a wrinkle or two the other day but only when I make a certain facial expression. Although, I get carded alot for cigarettes which is ridiculous. At first I thought it was these two guys flirting with me, but then the women started it too. Its not every time, but more frequently than I think is normal. It must be the purple in my hair.

Re: How old do you look ?

I look at least 10 or 15 years younger than I am. Most people think I'm around 24, which is entirely the wrong decade.

I used to tell people my age all the time, because I felt like I wasn't respected and somehow my age would earn me respect from others, but it doesn't. When people find out my real age I think they often look down on me for dressing (and sometimes acting) like I'm still in high school.

My goal now is to pass- which means not blurting out my age, which I still do all the time. I'm in school and most people are at least 10 years younger than me, but I still don't quite blend in. I need to though, because I think it's harder to get good internships and such when people figure out my Peter Pan syndrome. I make for a reasonably responsible 24 year old, and a horrible irresponsible 34 year old.

I always get carded for booze. I've even had bouncers tell me my license was fake, because I couldn't possibly be over 21.

When I was about 23 or 24 I got asked if I was old enough to sit in the exit row on a plane (which 15!)

And I'm not even short. I think a lot of it is how I dress, but I don't really know how to dress any differently, nor do I want to.

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... ???
1. you should have made the poll like this-

do you look younger or older than your age?

15+ years younger
10-15 years younger
5-10 years younger
1-5 years younger
my age
1-5 years older
5-10 years older

etc.

2. No one ever thought Andrea Zuckerman or the entire 90210 cast (or the Fonz) were played by teenagers. Most of those actors do look their real age. Except for Stockard Channing.

Re: How old do you look ?

Pretty close to my age, maybe a little younger. I definitely act younger... emotional immaturity

Re: How old do you look ?

I got 2 different answers :
- Younger than my actual age. In Texas, they refused to give me alcohol when I was actually showing my passport and I was 25. In New Zealand, I got IDed everywhere if I was buying cigarettes or alcohol. In Québec, they asked me if I was under 25 when I rented a car... That was last month.

- Older especially in my own country and in my job (must be the uniform). Somehow, a woman told me one day that I may be over 35. They served me alcohol in the bars when I was 16 or under. I was able to buy cigarettes at 17. No ID require because they all thought I was over 18. A coworker told me that I was probably over 30.

My real age is 27. So I guessed that physically, I look around my age but inside my head.... I must still be a teenager. It is somehow strange but people still think that I am a student just because I don't dress like a French woman in her late 20's. That's gross because I don't care about fashion and I have wrinkles.

Re: How old do you look ?

I find it difficult to judge how old I look. When I'm feeling down and insecure to me I look ancient. When I'm feeling good, I look my age.

As a teenager and in my early 20ies, people used to think I'm older than I was. Now, at 35, people (especially at work) seem to think, I'm younger. I don't think, it's because I look younger but because I act young (immature, a bit clueless, quite kiddish) and also because career wise I'm lagging behind the norm by about 8-10 years.

I look younger if I lose a bit of weight, wear make up (to hide my dark circles) or generally put a bit of an effort into my experience.

I've got quite a few white hairs now. I guess sooner or later I should start dyeing my hair but I can't be bothered now. It just seems like too much of work.

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.)
Dvd, you are adorable but I think, a different pair of glasses and maybe slightly shorter hair would make you look a lot younger (I mean, if you wanted to).

Salleh needs to come and vote, she's a few months older than I am even.
