Maybe he really did find you attractive but didn't wanna seem like a pedophile since he thought you were younger.
Yes, there are multiple forms of irony. There's verbal irony (which I believe is what you are think of #104) dramatic irony, and situational irony. I believe this is a case of situational irony which "involves a discrepancy between what is expected to happen and what actually happens." This is because you would expect the guy who is into literature not to judge a book by its cover, yet he is clearly judging OP's age by her appearance.
People say that a lot but I really don't think it works that way, haha. She'll get wrinkles just like everybody else and you'll be able to tell she's 80. It also doesn't seem like so much of a benefit to look younger than you are. People put way too much emphasis on that.
It does work that way. At 25 you start showing signs of aging because of what you've done and how you've treated your skin. If you continue on the path of taking care of your skin, at 80 you'll have less wrinkles and age spots than most people your age. I'm 26 and servers at bars still think I'm under 18. It's because I've stayed out of the sun and been diligent with sunscreen. There are people my age that look 40 already. It's maybe not an important thing if you don't put value into your appearance, but usually people do.
Try getting dirty looks in the stores by people because they think your skipping school. I had a lady come up to me once telling me it's not good to skip school. Should have seen the look on her face when I said I was almost 18 and had graduated High School already. She mistakened me for a 12 year old.
Didnt you correct him? Maybe he would have given you his number then?
This may have worked depending on what age he thought she was. If he thought she was around 17 and thought she was hot but knew he couldn't go there than he may be happy to hear how old she is and be interested. But if he thought she was 15 or under then I don't think he's going to want to go there because he thought she looked like a kid and may be completely turned off by that.
