People who do not look their age?

I'm 34 but everyone assumes I'm about 23-26, including a bunch of co-workers aged from 18 to 60 odds. I guess it's quite handy because I still like going to clubs and having a wee dance, so not looking as out of place as I probably am helps I guess.

It's funny how some fairly young people can have the reverse and can look more like 40, a hard paper round as we say here. Would much rather be babyfaced and age semi gracefully than look like I should be dead when I hit 50.

People don’t turn into senior citizens the moment they hit 30/40. Take care of your skin and you won’t mummify.

As someone who looks 10 years younger than his age, I think it's probably a good thing when you're a girl but as a guy....from my experience it's not good. In general people don't take you as seriously.
Yeah. I’ve been trying (and failing) to grow a beard so that I stop looking like a teen.
 
I think Rami Malek looks like his age 🤷🏽‍♀️

Something that I’ve realized as I get older is people in their 30s and 40s don’t look old at all. If anything people under 22 look way too young.

Bullock is solid for 54

I know you can argue he looks old, but Patrick Stewart helming a Picard show at 78 and being very still lively in interview surprises - he's young at heart

I'm 18 and look 15 which might as well be like a 10 year difference
Lol. That’s nothing. You’re all babies at that age. Get back to us in ten years!

I find that people have a weird concept of age and expectations of what someone should look like. People think 30’s is old. Everyone on gaf and this site say they look way younger than they are...soo yea, what does that say? Haha

I am almost 33 and everyone at work guesses that I am barely 20, which is odd because I don’t bother shaving and I don’t think I look that young. I think people are just really bad at telling other people’s ages. Your fashion choices and physical condition can easily age you +/-10 years. I just think a lot of younger people expect older people to be out of shape and frumpy looking.

Go look up pics of Sidney Pointer (91) and Cicely Tyson (94). They could pass for being in their 60s-70s. I would, but I have limited connectivity where I am currently.

Ringo Starr doesn't look much like his age either.

Kojima looks younger than he really is.

I'm 34 and every time, without fail, that I shave and try to buy alcohol I get carded

This thread basically shows that many white people age like avocados (seriously I have friends who just like 1-2 years after college have crows feet that look like they’re cutting into their ear lobes).

Then again, as seen with Ellen, make up can accomplish anything.

There was this kid in my high school, really short and suffering from serious male pattern baldness. In grade 10, he looked like a 40 year old. People used to make fun of him and shit, I felt bad.
