Despite thinking that I look 12, I usually tell people I'm 26 (I'm not). The oldest I've been mistaken for is 35 (I have no idea what that guy was smoking).

You can try and guess how old I am from my pics :P and no cheating (that means keep your mouth shut hermaj :P)

Not quite.

I think I'm the one who's going to be telling people to close the door, stop letting the draft in, and turn the music down, for now.

No biggie though. On my other forum, we're just as insane, but I'm in that meaty part of the age curve. I'm one of the dwindling few withOUT children over there.

I look younger than my age, at least according to people of my own ethnic group. To people outside my ethnic group, I am slightly older. The dichotomy is quite interesting. Also, please not the use of the word dichotomy whilst drunk.

You need a time machine, several egg salad sandwiches, 8.142 pounds of plutonium, a stun gun, and a plate of mashed potatoes smothered in the best gravy known to mankind.

That won't get you to be negative thirteen, but if you give all that to me I'll tell you how.

I was so excited when I went out to the bar, some guy thought I was 24! It was very wonderful, seeing as most people think I am 16-17. (I am 19.)

As I am, I probably couldn't, unless I got lucky. If I stopped shaving, though, I definitely could.

I told a friend who was complaining about getting older and older (now 28 ) (NO, not "28)" - silly and zealous auto-smileys) that she's actually 0x1C years old, which makes her a teenager.

She didn't seem to find that funny, though

I'm pretty sure it's illegaly for anyone here to be under 13 (at least, unless supervised by a guardian every second they're on here), so that doesn't really need to be an option.

Unless this is like a honey-pot operation to catch those pesky pre-teens and ban them. Sorry guys.

just after i turned 21, i was ridiculously thin and malnourished, which i suspect made me look a bit younger than i was. but i still thought it was weird that in the course of about a month i was mistaken for just about every age between 14 and 28. nowadays i actually look my age (23), which is new and exciting for me.
