it's possible to look like you're 18/20 at age 30?? (somatic traits, skin) .
What do you think about it?

Yes, of course. Quite a few people look very young for their age, naturally. It can be a problem when applying for jobs, or trying to get into bars, or looking for a mate. Or even trying to rent an apartment. If people see you as a child, you're not going to get very far.

It's hard to tell how old people are by looking at them, anymore. Especially women, but even some men look like teenagers, when they're really 25 or 30. Appearance doesn't mean anything anymore, except over 60, lol.

And what does it mean when you are over 60?

What do you think happens once you hit that number?

I'm 26 and I've recently been carded when buying a ticket to see an R-rated movie. I'm told I look around 14-15 years old.

I finally stopped getting that one. Now they ask if I am in or going to college :P

But the average perceived age for me is typically 25-27 and I am mid-30s. I try to avoid "young-looking clothing and accessories" and that helps a bit.
