I don't tan, don't smoke, don't drink, don't party. I drink a lot of water, always use sunscreen every single day, eat somewhat healthy, etc... Ever since I was younger, people would mistake me for 5 years older than I really am. When I was 16, I looked 21. Now I'm 22 and I could probably pass for 30. When I'm dressed casually, I look a bit more my age, but when I dress up in nice, sophisticated clothing I get approached by a lot of older men in their late 20's early 30's (but that's only when I'm not with my friends because they look a lot younger...they're 21/22, but could pass for 16...18). The men approach me thinking that I'm more of their age, but when I speak they're surprised by how young I sound (I have a young-sounding valley girl kind of voice). When I go to certain places, I don't get carded (only 50/50). When I was younger and 16 y/o...sometimes places wouldn't even card me. I don't know if they were being nice and lenient or is it really because I look that old? My mom is around 50 and she looks great for her age! My dad looks great too! I don't know what went wrong with my genes lol!
