I consider myself mature. I am mature. I can't relate to people my age, but older people don't seem to want to talk to me at all (maybe because they think I am young, immature, and stupid)
Should I dress more mature? Should I *gasp* wear makeup and trim my brows?
Should I just be all natural me and wait for a person who would judge my maturity based on my thoughts not looks?
You have beautiful hair!
Forget anyone who doesn't think you look mature enough for their conversation.

My friend said I look like a 21 year old, but act like I'm 65. I think she's right about that.
I guess a lot of people just assume if I don't know how to put some make up on, I must not know anything about "the real world"...
I'm TERRIBLE at guessing ages, but just looking at your picture I'd guess early 20's. But I'd want to talk to you no matter what age you are just 'cause you have such a friendly smile! And I wouldn't do makeup/whatever to look older...then you'll just end up hanging out with people you don't feel like you can act yourself around (at least that's how I feel about wearing makeup!)
I am glad I'm here. I think mdc mamas aren't all about make up like a lot of "mainstream" women. Once, I tried to go to church for socialization, and they "peer pressured" me into wearing make up. I had it, so I quit.
I don't think you should make changes in your appearance unless you feel your current look doesn't reflect the real you.
You could probably do a more sophisticated look and still be natural and comfortable. I don't think makeup is necessary for that. You could try a different hairstyle and different clothes.
I wouldn't have a problem talking to you based on your appearance.
