Does anyone else get this, especially with girls after they´ve seen you a few times on campus or wherever and you start talking they immediately are so surprised when you tell them your age. They comment on the way you dress and how mature you look. . .Preferring moccasins, khaki pants and casual shirts to hideous abercrombie/holister tee´s,tracksuit bottoms and nike dunks is maturity at its peak apparently
. Don´t get me wrong some girls just love it when your different to others, but its that whole " omg i cant believe your 21, you look like 27" comment that gets me >

QFT, most people under guess my age by about 4 years and I dress better than the OP.

Then I must be one of the best-dressed guys in SW&D. Most people underestimate my age by about a dozen years.

Maybe, or the hair. Or it could also be because virgins have a youthful naivete about them.

I'm 58 and usually mistaken for being a decade or more younger (in spite of the baldness).

I feel your pain. Bartender the other night ID'd me and said "Well, I should've known with those glasses and that blazer!"
