    what's going on style lab

    I am mad sick of looking well under my actual age...I know it sounds stupid but I'm well aware I look young for my age and I am unsure what I can do to make myself look 'my age.' I'm confident in myself, it's more of a business thing. I'm 22 years old, and I definitely look young. Regardless...any suggestions? I know I carry myself well and probably more maturely then most my age due to my life experiences, and I have no trouble with women...I guess I am just aware I look young and wondering if there's something I can do about it within reason.

    thanks!

    Grow a beard :dunno: When I have my beard people think i'm at least 3 years older than I actually am. On second thought, only grow a beard if you can grow a good one. Any sort of patchwork beard will make you look like you're 17.

    I have a baby face though, can't really change that.

    IMO what age people think you are has a lot more to do with personality.

    :hsugh: yes as far as appearance goes.

    unless these people that are mistaking you for being younger than you are, are doing so after seeing a picture.

    And if you do that thing with your posture and defensive arm positioning often, I'd say a whole lot of the misconstrued age has to do with your body language.


    Is the other dude your friend / same age? Sure he has some facial stubble and shit, but he looks a few years older than you. Look at his body shape and body language. It's explosive. You are in total contrast to him in every single way, in spite of having similar clothing styles
