I'm 39 and routinely get carded all the time in bars/restos.

When I turned 39 in May a bunch of people I knew were flabbergasted and thought I was late 20s/early 30s.

The grey hair coming in at the temples and in the beard belies that a little bit, but not enough for most people.

If I shaved my beard I could easily pass myself off as late 20s I think. I have very smooth skin, am afraid of the sun, don't smoke and have avoided putting on too much weight; I've been rocking the dad bod since my early 20s.

I have been told I have a relatively youthful face, but even clean-shaven all the gray in my hair means I can't pass for too much younger. Maybe early 30s.

I have a coworker who I thought was in his mid 30s like me that I was legit surprised when I found out he was 45. Still don't see it

I'm rarely carded as I usually buy alcohol from all the same places. They know me!

I am 37 but people usually guess I'm way younger
My face is kind of young looking but when I let my hair grow out a bit the gray is very noticeable, but I still don't think I really look older than about 35.
I guess my believable range would be about 28-40, with most assumptions being on the lower end.

I get carded still, so, 18? Most people who know me think I'm in my late 20's despite my pathetic capability to produce facial hair.

i'm 33 but just last week a barista at a coffee shop thought i was a college student he knew. my brother is a couple years younger than me, but people usually assume i'm the younger one. (though i think it's mostly because he has Big Dad Energy, in addition to being a literal dad.)

i think i could pass for anywhere between 25-40. i don't think my face is extra youthful or anything, and i usually have a beard, but i'm skinny and still have most of my hair (for now), so that seems to convince people i'm younger than i am.

i'm 30 but i still get carded for booze 90% of the time and regularly get "you're 30??" when i tell people how old i am.

i'm bad at guessing ages but i'm thinking i look like i'm 25. could maaaybe pass for one of those conservative college students who look 30 at 20.

I'm one of those people who is transitioning directly from being a spritely youth into a haggard troll

I look either 14 or 41 but definitely not anything inbetween

I'll be 50 in a matter of months and despite being bald and having two kids that grind me into dust, I'm usually pegged at mid/late 30s, especially if I'm clean-shaven

i think the fact that i still have a full head of shaggy hair is a big part of it.

i got a haircut a month ago and already need another cut because it still grows like weeds.

the tradeoff is that i have no body hair and can't grow facial hair at all

Yeah, my brother is three years younger (and a dad) and I don’t see how but people always assume I’m the younger one.

i was taken aback earlier this week by the amount of my chest hairs that are just pure white now. i guess i just don't pay that much attention to it but was trimming my beard, glanced down, and i'm like a silverback gorilla there now.

meanwhile i want even *more* grey hairs on my head (like, if i woke up tomorrow completely grey i'd be so happy) but they insist on just creeping in molasses-slow

One time I was at the bar after a shift and a new coworker was asking if I was married or had kids, and I was like “No, I don’t really plan on doing either of those things,” and he said “Well, you’ll change your mind when you get to be my age.”

I was 30 and he was like 25.

I've always had kind of a Benjamin Button thing where even as a little kid I had eye bags and wrinkled face, but being short, small and boyish made it hard to exactly peg how old I am. Now that I'm 41, it's probably evened out and my appearance is closer to my actual age, while still being a little vague. Full head of thick, fast growing hair that doesn't seem to be changing at all.

My husband, who is 2 years younger, always gets mistaken for early to mid 20s. He's always carded (but I never am :() and his clients at work will make reference to '90s pop culture before stopping themselves, "oh nevermind, you were like 5 when that happened..."

A bar in Michigan refused to serve me when I was 36 because they thought my license was fake. I argued that it would be pretty dumb for a 20 year old to pretend to be that old but she said I plausibly looked 20 so I took the compliment and left.

The gift of red hair is that it retains its color longer and the white hairs I do have kinda blend in to just make an overall strawberry blonde look.
