Before I lost weight this past year, almost everyone thought I was only 16-18 (I'm 21). Now that I've lost weight, it seems to be pretty mixed; some people think I look younger than my age while others think I look older.

I guess when I wear my basketball shorts and a t shirt, I look like a teenager but when I wear pants and a dress shirt, I look older.

I think most people think they look younger, but they really just look their age.

Pie is good.

Most people may think I am younger, but only because i'm short. Otherwise, I think I look my age.

Pie is great. I just treated myself to my roommates homemade pumpkin pie :s

Most people look their age, but think they look younger.

There's this idea that with age you're supposed to look a hot, leathery mess

I'm 24, most people assume I am late 20's early 30's... Even in high school people thought I was older, I was once even mistaken for an sub/teacher.

People have been guessing I was younger than my age since I was in my early 20s. I think I pretty much look good for my age, and nobody has ever thought I was older than my age.

All that said? I think looking good for one's age ought to be what we all strive for.

I'm 28 and I went to a park a few days ago. A few women thought I was 17-18 years old. They were shocked when I told them I was 28, and this is with somewhat visible 5 o'clock shadow. I'm also short and athletic-looking in physique, so I don't know what role that played.

I think I look my age. I'm told by others that my skin looks youthful, but I think it's a combination of good genetics and being very mindful of sun exposure, since I am very fair, and not wearing much makeup (the few crow's feet I do have are less noticeable when there's no makeup settling into them, so I laid off foundation, etc. for the most part a while back). I am a 37-year old with good skin, and I think I look like a 37-year old with good skin.

Most people are surprised to find out I'll be 40. Facial wise, I think I look closer to my age....body wise, I rarely see middle aged women who are as fit as I am.
