    I lost mine when I turned 18 and could grow facial hair. A guy I saw for a brief period in time is 23 and still could pass for 17.

    I was routinely carded until I was in my early 30s (to prove age 21 to enter US bars). My last carding was age 53 at a gay club that only carded doubtfuls, not everyone and not randomly. Although admittedly I was wearing my riding leathers and sunglasses, I'm short, and the club entrance was a bit dim. I tipped the security guy who did it $5 USD in gratitude!

    I believe it's mostly genetics, plus how well you take care of yourself and your general health. And so it's different for everyone.

    I'm 26 and routinely pass for under 21. No one ever believes my real age anyway. Some of my friends joke that my pseudo-Asian appearance (despite not being Asian) is what keeps me looking young icon_cool.gif I think it's that plus the fact I'm small and shave regularly.

    Just several years ago, looking young used to annoy me. Now it doesn't. Well, I find it amusing more than anything. But I'm sure by the time I'm 30 I'll find it flattering.

    God, 15 or something. When I was 19 I'd tell people that and they'd be like wtf no way man you're like mid 20's show me your license. I went to Vegas when I was 20 and no one carded me ONCE for ANYTHING.

    I stopped looking boyish at 12. I'm in my 30's and look it - I think that's the point.

    You'll look younger for a long long time. It's the wisdom in your eyes that will give your age away. ...On a really good day I can look 18. Been years since I looked 16, but pulling mostly early-mid 20's w/o facial hair. With facial hair I and little care look closer to 30, my true age.

    Be happy. I was mistaken for 30 when I was 18. That's what a receding hairline and a bald spot does. Combine with an impassive, unanimated, lifeless look that I often sport in grad school and due to the plight of being hairless.

    I'm mistaken for 16 and I'm 21. Hopefully the boyish looks fad eventually!

    Lost my main boyish look somewhere around 21 now it all depends on what I'm wearing and how my hair is. Usually don't get carded anymore at least.

    Not into the boyish look either, always liked men.

    I'm told I haven't aged since high school, but that my features have sharpened. And I'm black, so hopefully I'll probably look this way until I'm 50.

    Like my father, I will continue to look like I'm 21 until I reach 35. When my father turned 34, his metabolism slowed, his hairs became gray, and wrinkles attacked his eyes and cheeks. I can control the metabolism part, but all the males in our family have that 35 yr curse. I hope the fact that I don't consume soul food, I practice yoga, drink plenty of water, steer clear of energy drinks and indulge in "age defyging" fruits and veggies...I hope all of these things will help me to age naturally. I don't mind looking my age, just don't want to look older than my age.

    I generally get mistaken for 26 or 27 (sometimes younger) all the time. I am happy about it...but I can't help but wonder what happened to the days when I was 27 and would get mistaken for 23. icon_neutral.gif
