16 mistook for 18. That's normal.
But to be told that people thought you were 20 while you are 15 is really excessive.

    I would consider that a compliment but that's just me. Most people assume I'm in college but there have been a few that thought I was 16 or 17. >:[

    Yeah. I kinda took it as one. Like, if I could get into a bar on those things alone (And not ID), I'd be drinking like there's no tomorrow already lol.

      The only time where looking younger than my age has helped me was when this really sketchy guy asked me if I could drive him somewhere, but he then assumed I was too young to drive haha I don't think I can get away with that anymore though

        There was one guy that just randomly sat next to me in McDonalds and thought I was, like, 30. But, for the most part, people tend to think I'm either my age, or a lil' bit younger. I don't really mind it, but I'm at an age where I don't need to appear older than I am to get what I want in life.

        Not unless you want to stay young forever, though.

        Some people tend to think I'm older than I really am. Though it's a bit hard to judge my age based on my personality, considering I'm not social enough to attempt to hold a conversation. c:

        I'm reading comments on youtube about people fighting over the meaning of 'Breaking the Habit' by Linkin Park haha. Also being amused by a conversation on facebook. I can't believe these people are adults. ;u;

        I do look young so part of it is the demeanor and the way you present yourself. I try to present myself as confident and intelligent hard to do without appearing like a douche which are characteristics people tend to attribute to older people.

        I have different personnalities.
        When i'm with my 2yrs old cousin, i tend to be very playful. My mom tells me that i am just a kid like her.
        When i'm with strangers, i adopt a mature personnality. And when these strangers become good friends, i release my playful nature.

            Seriously? Why can't people just enjoy the song and move on. :[ I don't really care what the meaning is so long as it sounds good.

            I try to come off as confident myself, even though I've struggled with it in the past. Confidence is one of the best traits you can have; I can't think of a well-known person that wasn't confident in their ability.

            I started puberty when I was about 12 and I'm pretty sure the bulk of it ended last year. Now all I have to do is wait for my face to grow up and I'm golden. Surprisingly however,I get a lot of remarks that my no hair rarely having to shave look makes me look younger then 19 but a lot of the females take me easily for 23-24. That and cause I'm built like a moose on the upper body, bar the fat.

            Lol for me it's a lot of work with no reward, because the only places that hair grows is the absolutely most inconvenient places (eg the bridge of my nose, and my neck oh god awful) and it's not like it's even plausible to not have people look at me funny with hair in places like that lol

            Haha, don't think its fun and games for me either. I can only grow a goatee, no sideburns, the neck is only the part under the goate with a gaping hole in the middle, and the enter sides are still growing in, with a faint jaw line. The mustache is awesome though, I have the little groove with no hair and hair on both sides of it rocking a classical look. Edit:

            Basically number 3 and number 10. Its a straggly chevron.

                I can grow a mustache and I'm starting to grow a goatee. My mustache is starting to get noticeable though so I might end up shaving it sometime this week.

                Out of all the mustaches in that article, mine is closest to number 3.

                I got mine when I was 12. Wait a minute... I don't think getting your rag means what I think it means..
                People are growing rags now? .o.

                OH if we're not talking about beards, then yeah rag at 10 sucks. 12 should be the normal age.

                Hmm facial hair? I had a semblance of a mustache at 15, by 16-17 my chin started growing more hair and now that I'm 20 I get a full beard and 'stache although there are areas that I know will connect once I'm a little older. I do maintain and clean it up every now and then. Can't be looking like a bum haha

                I was growing sideburns by 15, but couldn't get a beard until 19-20.

                Also, off topic, but I just counted all the currencies my mom gave to me as souvenirs from her all her trips.

                By my estimates with trade-in values of those currently used and those no longer used, it all amounts to only $28 USD. Some of the coins were in a language I couldn't read, though, so I left them out of the total.
