Question Do you look your age? How do people treat you?

Do you look young or older for your age. And does how old you look effect how people treat you?

I've always been told that I look young for my age and people don't always take me seriously when they think I'm around 30, but when I tell them that I'm in my 40's their attitude seems to change or they treat me different....

I took a fall on Monday and a bus driver stopped to help... I was terrified that my hips were broken because I have Osteo, things were going slow, the bus driver told 911 that I was 28 years old and when I corrected her...she told the operator that I was a very young looking 42 yr old ...the operator asked her if I banged my head...giving my correct age they rushed the call...

I often run into problems or I'm treated like an idiot because people think I'm too young to understand or too young to sick....never realized that there is an age limit on how ill you can be....

Sorry to hear about your fall, hope it turned out ok. Sometimes the simplest falls can cause alot of damage.

I don't look my age, thank heavens. I do not feel or act my age either.

I look like around my age, but sometimes I don't act my age it seems, and I seem to have this air about me that makes people think I am older than I am...

Many times I have been told that I don't look as old as I am but because I treat people the way I expect to be treated, most people treat me with respect.

I have always looked younger than I am. When I was in my early 20's I had several people think I was only 16. Now that I'm almost 30, many people have thought that I'm in my early 20's. They about fall over when I tell them I've been married for 10 years and have two kids and one on the way.

Sometimes I do feel like people don't take me seriously, even when they find out I'm not as young as they thought I was. To them I'm still very young and they probably don't think I've lived enough to know too much about certain things. Which to some extent is true. I do still have a little more growing to do, but I shouldn't be thought of as ignorant because of my young age.

On the contrary, when the early 20 something women I used to work with found out that I'm near 30, some of them stopped including me in their conversations and outings after work. I guess to them I was too old! LOL! Oh well, they really got on my nerves anyway.

I've always looked young, and it sucked when I was teenager. But now, I kinda like it.

Be grateful for what you have, and who you are. What's the alternative? Life is a vapor, here today, and gone the next.

I have been blessed to always look younger than my age as well.
Wifey's friends always tell her that they think I look ~30-35.

It is pretty funny when people who don't know me hear me talk about my 20 year old son.
Their eyes get real big and a few of them have literally dropped their jaws, lol.
That's when they say "No way! You're too young to have a son that old!", to which I always reply "That was the right answer!"

I have been told I look younger than my age. I have also been fortunate to not have any gray hairs crop up. My sister is 5 years younger than me and has to constantly colour her hair. Everyone thinks she's the big sister and no one beleives my mom could have a daughter my age. But then again, I don't have kids to give me gray hairs lol.

I became very uncomfortable with my age when I hit 40. I still feel that way, partly due to the age, but also due to the fact I do not think I have accomplished anything in my life. It irks me that if some one asked what I have accomplished in my life I couldn't come back with an answer.

As for how I get treated...I really have not noticed. I don't feel people treat as if I am old. Maybe they do and it goes right over my head...I'm pretty much clueless with these types of things.

I think I look younger than 51...since I lost 27 lbs and started coloring my hair especially. Gonna have to watch my weight....can't get too chubby to ride my horse.

My hair would have a lot of gray...so if I didn't color it I would most certainly look my age or older. For me...the chubby makes me feel older...my body doesn't work as well...so I act older. Things hurt, I whine, and want to sleep a lot.

People at work started to treat me differently when I started feeling better about myself and started taking better care of myself.

How we look and feel about ourselves has something to do with the image we project to others...if you act like a piece of constant sorrow and pain filled flesh...then thats how you are gonna be seen. If you have a positive outlook and feel good body and soul others see and feel it.

Personally I think I look my age but apparently other folks don't but as I get older the age difference between what I am and what they thought isn't so much as it used to be.

ACT my age.....nope...never really known how to do that

I think I am young at heart and hope to always be that way! I guess maybe I get it from my folks....most folks think they're in their late 50's early 60's and they are actually mid and late 70's.

I look younger than I really am. I got carded buying cigarettes for my husband a few days ago...I still get carded for cigarettes and alcohol quite often. Getting carded really bothered me 10 years ago, but now it doesn't bother me at all.

But I also think that looking younger does change the way people treat you. I feel like some (not all) people who think I'm younger than I really am do talk to me as if I'm just a kid. Later those same people can find out my real age, suddenly I notice they don't seem to be "talking down to me".

I'm 49 but people think I'm younger. Was told only today I still look the same as I did 27yrs ago and that I have a baby face. Yet when I was in my late teens I always looked older or maybe it was mature enough not to have to show ID. Used to attrack the older guys too, which was good back then. But these days people seem to think I'm younger. My mum always had good skin and looked young. Think I take after her, except she died at the age of 46 so can't compare anymore.

I probably look at least my age – you could plot a course using the furrows on my face. I should really have moisturised more, kept out of the sun, and not frowned at all. I feel I’m aging quickly these days, and can look pretty haggard at times, but can’t say it’s affecting me that much. I still recognise myself, still feel comfortable, and still take the same level of thought over my appearance, but I’m resigned to do nothing more until my general health becomes an issue.

As for acting my age – not sure how age and behaviour can be defined and compared, though I’m sure it is related at times! Feeling philosophical today, so I’ll say I’ve done my fair share of learning, searching and experiencing for a 38 year old, but I still hold on to my youthful exuberance - I need it sometimes! Largely, people seem to treat me the way I treat them, and I don’t really focus on age that much.
