Default Do I look younger or like the average 34 year old?

I am 33 now but will be turning 34 soon in May so soon to be a middle aged woman. Do I look young for my age or can you tell that I am in my thirties. I SWEAR I am NOT trolling or fishing for compliments (I do not want compliments, I want folks to be BLUNT and honest, don't be nice) or fishing for attention (ok, perhaps I am asking for attention, I'm an attention *****).

Some people tell me I look rather young (mid 20's) while others say that I have an old face and they can tell right away that I am in my thirties. As for the swimsuit picture; I am actually a lot more toned now since I started working out hardcore but it still gives an indication of how my body looks in terms of size.

The reason why I posted many pics was so you could get a clearer overall view (candid shots versus professional etc in case one picture was deceiving).

I am not asking how old you think I am according to ethnicity or my posts on this forum but based on appearance alone. Do I look like the average 34 year old or younger and why? Does it look like I let myself go throughout the years or does it look like I took good care of myself? How do I look compared to the average 34 year old and why?

You look like a woman of about 30 who has taken good care of herself. You are very pretty.

Thank you. Just curious, how could you tell that I was in my thirties? Is it because my features look older?

Looks do not guarantee health. I realize you are not asking this but how about you as a whole person? Aging is guaranteed, to what extend we don't know until we get older!

Now, this said... I have always been thought to be younger than I am. When I was a teen, I hated it! But now, in my 40s, I love it. BUT that doesn't mean aging won't happen!

Good things to focus on: getting enough sleep, eating sensibly, getting exercise, studying and using your mind, etc...

Do you know that walking can keep you from aging as much? That keeping your body moving helps your organs, thus, helping you to stay younger!

Fine lines around your eyes (the big smile pic in particular, where you look like you are laughing) and the "parentheses" aound your mouth. I have prominent cheekbones like yours, and that's just what happens where they meet the nose. I laugh a lot too, but I do not want to be an old woman with no laugh lines.

I thought you looked 30-ish. If you said 28, I wouldn't be the wiser.

Only two of the pics are showing age (in the 30s), in my opinion:

http://i288.photobucket.com/albums/l...nly2_thumb.jpg
http://i288.photobucket.com/albums/l...was_here/l.jpg

The rest of them show a young person, maybe 25-30.

By the way, people between 25 and 35 look about the same.

I think it is in part because I have big cheeks. I have no problem being older with no laugh lines; I actually don't laugh a lot to be honest. I hate those lines; in a few years I plan to get fillers for them (Restylane).
