Today, I went out to dinner with my boyfriend and his mom. The hostess asked if I needed "the kid's menu," remarked how I look "so grown up for your age," and asked what grade I was in. I said I'm in university. She laughed as if it was the best joke ever told. I'm 22. FML

As a young looking woman, I have to disagree. I already don't get any respect from people I meet due to me being a short woman. Add looking like I'm 12 on top of that? Forget it. Even if I dress well, I get mistaken for a teenager or at the very least, a college student. I got asked if I wanted the kid's menu just last weekend. I turn 25 next week.

I am mistaken for being older. I brought my girlfriend out for a date at olive garden and got asked if I would like any champagne and I had to tell the waitress that both of us were 18 and she looked at me like she couldn't believe it. Granted it is only a little more than 2 years till I am old enough, but I hope I don't always look older than I am later in life.

I disagree. It gets annoying over time but I guess it's because I look so petite. But now when people ask me how old I am, I just explain to them that it's normal for an immortal to look younger than what they really are.

I think it's better to look younger than to look older. My sister has been asked if I'm her mother, and she's two years older than me! On the plus side, I ordered my first alcoholic drink from a restaurant when I was about fourteen but after the teenage years it's not fun to look old.

When I was at school still, people would think I was 11 because I'm 4"11 and my school uniform was designed to make everyone shapeless, so instead of it showing I had boobs, it made me look fat. This was a couple of months ago when I was taking my exams -.-

I believe I have discovered how this system works, allow me to explain. When you are 12-15 you look 18-20 as soon as you hit 16 (or close to it) you look freaking 12 again -.- you're welcome.

I've always been told I look younger then I am… most people assume I'm 11-13, when I'm actually 15. Its a little annoying but you get used to it. Doesn't meant it doesn't offend you a bit though!

You'll appreciate looking young when you're 40 :)...anyway, that waitress is dumb. "Look so mature for your age", she says, when she has no idea what age you are....can't you just look normal or young for age 22?

I know a girl from my old job who looks like a middke schooler and she was really 30, but hey, enjoy the gift of youth a little longer :) though i would do something about that rude waitress
