  • No one can tell you your own feelings.  Are you bothered by it?  It can be taken as a put down or take it as a compliment.  It's however YOU choose to deal with it.

  • idk....i guess it depends on how they said it. i was told i look too young to have 3 kids but they said it to mean i look good for my age (or maybe they think once you have 3 kids you look as tired as you feel lol i'm not sure, but i was happy)

  • I guess that depends on how old you actually are. If you are in your 30's or over take it as a compliment.

  • I do not see it as a compliment or a put down. It is probably just a fact that you look very young.

  • I have been told that several times, and I take it as a compliment. It is always better to look younger than what you are than older.

  • Embrace it. Before you know it you will be 'too old' to do, say, wear, or want something.

  • I would've pointed out that once a woman is ovulating (no matter how young) she is not too young to have a baby. Depending on the person, I may have asked what they *really* were implying by the question...

    I was looking "too" young to buy superglue at 29 and was carded(must be 18 in my state)! However, since having my son and the ensuing sleep deprivation, no one thinks I look too young anymore;)
