true i'm not going bald. I'm having the opposite problem my hair is becoming thicker the older I get.
that's only a problem if you don't get it styled. my hair is thick like a neanderthal but I get it styled/thinned out to look more elagant

I look 12 supposedly w/o make up. I went out w/ my mom to a museum and a lady with a little girl asks my mother how she and her "little girl" are. I say that I am 21 and the lady blushes out of embarrassment.
If you want to look older hang out with 12 year olds (unless you’re 12), if you want to look younger hang out with 90 year olds (unless your 90). It’s mostly based on the perceptions of other people and their age and usually not on your actually looks. If a 40-year-old thinks you’re old and you’re 19 then you may have a problem.
I'm 32, sometimes people mistake me for 31. No, actually, I don't pay attention to this sort of thing. I guess it could be very annoying if either you feel like you're trivialized by how young you look, or if people think you look haggard beyond your years.
People's guesses of my age are polarized between early high school age (I'm short) and early twenties (but my voice is relatively deep and I don't have that big-doe-eyes-and-soft-features look). I know that there's a stereotype that Asian women don't age, but I conclude that you can't fucking tell someone's age from their appearance. Hell, I have a cousin in her forties who's an aesthetician and looks like she could be my age. It's impressive, to be fair.
The thing is, I do feel trivialized for my height. Not as related to age perception, but it does irritate me when people who have just met me act like I'm fragile or can't speak for myself.
I get ID'd about half the time still (in places where it's up to their discretion - not counting the ones like clubs where they ID everyone), and I'm nearly 6 years older than the drinking age is here. It does depend on who I go with mostly, and maybe a little bit how I'm dressed. It's annoying since I can't even attempt to buy booze without an ID and I'm bad for remembering it, since I rarely use it otherwise.
I get people 4-5 years younger thinking I'm the same age as them all the time, too.
