I generally can but there have been a few cases that I was surprised. They looked considerably older than they appeared from behind. What is it that makes women look young with their backs to you? I have my own theories.

Maybe the more important question should be why would you need to? Are you a mugger, flasher, or pickup artist selecting a more vulnerable target or something?

You can tell by the way she carriers herself. Is her posture good? How is she walking? What is she wearing on her feet? (You can tell from behind).

Yeah, can't figure out why this is a skill anyone would need.

How do you verify this? Do you go up to the woman once you see her from the front and ask her to confirm her exact age?

Waist-hip ratio, how much the butt sticks out, and how much leg is exposed. It will be right more often than not, but its accuracy still isn't good enough.

Not easy, some women in their 60s still look very fit from behind if they exercise.

I'm surprised when walking behind a man waddling along, huffing and puffing, dressed in baggy clothes, assuming he must be middle-aged, to see he is actually in his 20s or 30s.

As a 63 year old, I've experienced seeing the disappointment in a guy's face when I turned around and they realized it WAS 63.
