    So I've been blessed with these charming young looks which I'm told I will appreciate when I get older. But not that I'm a young adult I'd like to look my age or some what close. Is this an issue with anyone else? I'm more of a t-shirt and jeans kinda girl & I'm only 5'0, so it's extremely easy for some one to mistake me as like 12-14 yr. old. Lol! It seems like the older I get the younger I look. What can I do? Do I just deal with it - Really that seems all I can do. Advice anyone....?

    It may seem to be a pain now, but you will value this as you get older. An aquaintance of my mother thought I was 25. I just turned 36 last month. Former church members said the same thing about 4 years ago. Believe me, I don't mind.

    I always get that I look 16 sometimes but I am 20, especially when I wear a hoodie.
