do you think you look good for your age??


I don't think I am a model or anything near one, but I know that for being 38 I look youthful.

There are some folks that look 'hit' for their age, like a few friends I have from grade/high school look like they are 50 instead of 38.

A few ppl that I know are 30 and look 40.

I smoked for 19 yrs (quit 3.5 yrs ago) but thankfully all my yrs of smoking didn't make me wrinkle or age.

I know genes play a big part in the way we look, and how hard of a life we have had, sun exposure, etc.

So how do you fair? Do you think you look your age, look older, or look younger.

I always get told that I look 30-32 from random strangers when trying to guess my age, or when I tell someone I have an almost 17 yr old they look at me like I have 2 heads.

Me and my bff's had this conversation the other night, so it made me wonder....

People are always shocked when I tell them I am 30. They think I look anywhere from 22-26.. Some of my older patients think I'm even younger! hehe Seems the older a person gets, the younger they think other people look!

I have good genes too. Both my parents look younger than they are, as well.

People say I look young for my age and I am lucky that I have few grey hairs and dont have to colour my hair.
I just turned 42, not sure how old people think I look, but def not in my 40's.

Nobody ever guesses my age. When I tell them I am 40, or I have a 20yr old, or I have a young grandchild I get jaw-drops every time.

Only 5yrs ago I was still getting asked for ID!

I am glad to hear this :)

AND all of you that posted thus far, do look younger than you all are.......

I get my youthful genes from my mama (egg donor) she just turned 60 and doesn't look her age at all. :)

I love it, and hope my 40's are as good to me as my 30's and 20's.... :)

people always think I am younger than I am. It is a pain in the butt sometimes when I get I.D ed at almost 29 yrs old. I have had people look at me like my I.D is fake LOL. Most do not think I am older than 19. Than comes the really weird looks when I have both kids with me like I had my son at 13 or something :S

What is really funny is when dh and I are out people think he is older than me and can't believe it when they find out I am 4yrs older.

I think I look just about my age. I'm 32. Both of my parents look great for their age so I hope that I'll age well.

Im 28 and think I look pretty good. People think im 23 or 24 sometimes, so I will take it. I did smoke for about 5 or 6 years, but I know that the effects of that (if any) will help as I get much older and not right away.. I have 3 grey hairs.. lol and thats it, so far. I blame the stress of my job on that one haha...

I used to get told all the time I looked really young for my age. I get it from both of my parents, as they look young for their age. I havent gotten any comments like that lately, the one time, they said I looked my age. Emily says I look like an old lady, but that wont count lol.

I get ID only depending where I am. I have gotten anywhere from 16-18 mostly when am not wearing make-up. When make-up 20/21.
On the phone I have received LOTS of is your mother home? And those are potential clients, they all are sorry once I say am in my early 20's and they tell me I sound like a child.
