20 People Who Don’t Look Anywhere Near Their Age

3 years ago

People say that age is just a number. And that it doesn’t matter how old you are, it only matters how old you feel. That’s great and all, but how are you supposed to feel when you look 40 years old when you are only 12, or vice versa? It seems that there’s only one solution: post your photos online and ask what other people think.

This is what 20 people from today’s compilation did. We at Bright Side still don’t understand how they are able to trick time and we hope to solve this mystery soon.

“Matronly 40-year old librarian? Nope! Just me, a 12-year old boy.”

“I’m 26 years old, I would do anything for some facial hair”

“13 years old in the late ’80s. Ready for my job in middle management.”

“Just turned 40! Working on myself lately... How am I looking?”

“I looked like a 31-year-old single mom who wants to see the manager. I’m 10 years old in this photo, and I’m a male.”

“My hair is getting to the stage where I look like every teen did on their MySpace page in the early 2000s. This is my ‘nobody understands me’ face. Yes, I am 37. No mom, it’s not a phase.”

“Glamour Shot when I was 12, looks like I’m 35 and would like to sell you a colonial on a great lot in a subdivision in an amazing school district.”

“I’m a 30-year-old professor. It can take some convincing.”

“School photo looking like a 60-year-old librarian with my cardigan, turtleneck, and thick glasses, date and age unknown.”

“Me at the age of 16”

“1986,13 years old. I was told I looked like Tom Cruise. I’m a girl.”

“I was asked out by a 15-year-old and a 40-year-old on the same night. I turned both down. I’m actually 26.”

“This is me, I’m 18.”

“I was going for that sweet 30-year-old look at the age of 13.”

“My friend and I were in a play last year. I’m on the left and was 28 in this photo.”

“This was me at 16... I’m a dude.”

“Me 9 years ago (I’m 22 today)”

“I’m 30 years old and I’m happy.”

“This photo was taken about a week before my 14th birthday.”

“Me at 11 rocking the granny sweater. I’m 35 now.”

How often do people tell you that you don’t look your age? Do you have a photo to illustrate that?

People never believed me when I told/tell them my age (48 right now), they don't even believe that I have a grown up daughter. When we go somewhere together, others think that we are best friends (she is 26), even her classmates supposed that when they saw me the first time. I don't think that I look 26, maybe my daughter looks much older, I am not sure. :)
