^The above is probably the main reason people think I'm a child. Not to mention what also gets me a lot of...creepy attention. There's a reason if I walk to, say, a fast food place down the street from my university, I walk like I'm pissed off. People tend to leave you alone then.
I'll trade you. v.v I've looked like I was 30+ since the age of 12 (high school is awkward when your classmates think you are the teacher; no dates for me). I was 16 and people asked me questions about my son, who happened to be my 10 year old brother. The graying in my hair isn't helping things either. I'm only 22...
Yeah, I've never understood why people get upset about looking younger than they are. Trust me, the alternative is much worse.
I'm in KomiTsuku's shoes. I've never been carded in my life for ANYTHING, and have always looked older than I am. I shaved my head at 18 for the military, and didn't grow it out again until 22, after a stressful final year of service during which most of my childhood friends and military buddies died. I attended SO many funerals that year and sat with so many widows . . . I guess the stress got to me or I have bad genes, but when my hair grew back, it was gray
My hair can't make up it's mind - I was blonde until I was 10, brunette till I was 18 (or 19 or 20 or 21, but with a shaved head, who knows?), and then gray at 22 until now. Now I attract girls my age with "daddy issues". Sigh. I really should dye it, I guess.
