Babyface Problems

I definitely have a baby-face, and most of the time, I think it's a good thing. After all, it probably means I'm going to look young and fresh faced way past other people, right? That being said, there are some annoying things about being a baby-face.

1) I'm going to get ID'd until I'm like, 40.

I don't know if I'm going to view this as a problem when I'm 40 (in fact, I'll probably be flattered), but I think I'm going to get ID'd forever. I'm legal in most countries besides this one, but based on my face you'd never know it.

2) People have NO idea how old I am.

I have been handed children's menus at restaurants and asked about my husband on the same day. Within hours of each other. Yup, that's true. It's nice to occasionally get kids price things, but it's also a little weird that people think I look anywhere from 12-26. The other day, my mother and I went to a tourist bureau and the lady working there was clearly trying to get her to pick up some family-oriented brochures. It was kind of funny, and it took her ages to figure out that I was university aged. Oh, and people often think I'm a freshman even though I know my way around campus, too.

3) People question my relationship with my boyfriend because I look so young.

Okay, so I know my boyfriend has a beard and can probably pass for being in his thirties if he dressed for business and carried a briefcase. Sometimes I look younger because I'm wearing a skirt or have a ribbon in my hair. That being said, if we're walking down the street and clearly dating, isn't it a bit rude to comment? I've heard people in restaurants say that he was "robbing the cradle" which is funny because he's only two years older than me. Not cool.


  1. I can definitely see how that last point would be annoying, but at the same time it makes me kind of glad that people are concerned about the young girl and much older man relationship they believe they are seeing, haha. People don't tend to know how old I am either - recently I was with my father at the grocery store and he was talking to a friend. The next day he saw the friend again and the friend said that he didn't know my father had kids that young. My father was kind of like, "She's 24...". I kind of get a kick out of it, but it is frustrating sometimes!


    1. You definitely bring up a good point about being concerned about a young girl and a much older guy! But that's pretty funny about thinking you were substantially younger than 24. I guess if you take it as funny it's easier to deal with for sure :D

  2. Haha oh dear, I have the opposite problem, or at least I did more when I was younger, I always looked so much older than I was. I remember asking for a child ticket and the bus driver refusing as he was adamant I was not a child, I was 13!

    1. That really is the exact opposite! Well I guess ID's come in handy.

  3. when I go to casinos and I enter through the front door, I still get carded... it's kind of nice though.. it's like being forever young :)
