    I wanted to see how many other realjockers get shit like this.

    I took down my age on Grindr, which im now off for a while, and everytime I met up with someone, I got asked my age.

    I told them 24.

    Every response was the same

    "Wow, 24! Your really 24, I mean thats still young, but you look like your 20, max."

    Who else looks like a baby here?

    Well, you certainly don't. you look to me like a 24 year old version of my 16 year old god-son. Looking at you, I think he'll be the apple of no few people's eyes.

    Lol I know I dont look 12, I use that to exaggerate.

    It reminds me at work when we had to bring in a professional photo for our brochures and the receptionist said "oh, is that your high school prom photo?"

    /Facepalm!

    Which picture did you use?! If it's the one where you're wearing your school sweatshirt...yep you look like you're jailbait. But the others look like you're in the young 20s. Looks fine...icon_neutral.gif

    Its not the pictures, its when we meet in person lol.

    A lot of people dont even think I look old enough to be in the bars, thats why I grew the facial hair to get rid of my baby face.

    I accept that i look a bit boyish, but I still don't think I look that young.

    Back when I first started seeing guys, I would have to show them my ID because they wanted to make sure I was legal lol.

    Everyone at my unit thought I was so young too. They truly thought I was 17 going on 18 and fresh out of high school. They were so surprised when they found out I was in my 20s.

    Funny thing is kids know I'm getting older. Last year a girl called me sir at my little sister's 8th grade graduation. It was horrifying, I spent the first 3 minutes looking around trying to find this guy she was talking to lol.

    cold saidDespite my Simpsons clip, I think you look early 20s - but, why did you remove your age?


    Dunno. I removed all info other than my height and weight. Age just left with it lol. I think the youth also comes from my big eyes, big smile, and overall pure look.

    Hmm I'd take that as a compliment and behigh up in the air - I have the opposite problem. Most people can't believe I'm 27. I apparently look like I'm in my early thirties. Used to bug me before, but after you hear it a dozen times, you get thick-skinned icon_biggrin.gif

    All. The. Time. I get carded for practically everything, then they see my age and say: "There's no way you're 20.". I'm always so tempted to say "You're right... I actually lied on my ID. I'm actually 28.".

    @ the OP, I could see how you could look younger if your face was clean shaven, but not under 20 at all.

    I look very young too and I love it, I like older men and most older men like young guys so it's a win win situation. Can't wait to be 50 and look 20 hahahaicon_biggrin.gif

    You do NOT look 12. most definitely not. icon_razz.gif

    Trust me, there will come a time when you are thankful to look younger than you are.

    I grew up with people thinking I'm younger than I am.... many times it could work to my benefit.. getting in on the 12 and under ticket at the movies when I was 15 or 16.

    Sometimes not so much. I got carded at a gay bar when I was 32.. I thought that was ridicuous. Someday you'll be glad, I've never had any regrets.

    Yeah, people think I'm younger than I am. In the past have not been taken as seriously as I'd like. And guys I have liked wouldn't give me the time of day because they didn't realize I actually wasn't as young as they thought.

    I look at people around my age and wonder why. Why do they look so bad? lol

    People tell me I always look young, prepped, and primed, but when I speak they can tell I'm not as young as I look.

    For some reason, whenever I meet anyone new, the third or fourth question after my name, and what I do is "how old are you?"

    Thank god the response is "I thought you were younger" or at the very least "I hope I look as good as you at that age"

    Not sure how I feel about that

    I have a funny story about that. I used to work big parties in the city as a poker dealer when I was in college. I booked a gig at a bar mitzvah and I was still out of uniform. One of the party planners grabbed me by the shoulders and said, "Why are you in the waiting room while they're setting up? Shouldn't you be with the other kids?" So believe me I know your pain.

    Anyway, with that being said. Facial hair and decent clothes help make you look a tinge older.
