  • I love that I don't look my age.

  • I used to have that problem too - people always thought my son was my mom's and I was his big sister, even though I was 23 when I had him. I'm now 37 and most people that don't know me well think I'm in my late 20s. It never really bothered me though. I would laugh. Not a whole lot you can do about it - if you are dressing your age then there's not much more you can do (however, if you are still wearing "young" clothes that may have something to do with it)

  • I am 42 and alot of people think that my 21 year old daughter is my sister. I have also been out with my 21 year old and 4 year old twins and people think she is the mom and I am the grandma to the twins. LOL

  • I have the same thing happen to me! I'm also 25. One time I went into the ABC store and right as I walked through the door the employee asked to see my ID because I didn't look old enough to be in there.

  • Im 39 and always had the same problem. I looked like a teenager until I hit around 25. Then I looked my age but still havent aged to where you would think I am almost 40. Count your blessings. I know I am going to start looking my age soon enough, its how women age in our family is all. My dd is 22 yrs old and has 2 kids and it gets on her nerves people think shes a teenager with 2 kids. I told her to hell with them. They dont know you anyway, and you look better then they do. Thats probably why they say stuff lol.

  • well, how do you dress? maybe you could use a bit of a makeover to look a little older.

  • People say i look younger too. I'm some years older than you & people always tell me i look 17. I like it! Although, many people in my DD's school ask if i am her older sister. Their mouths sometimes drop when i tell them i am her mother.
