I'm replying before reading anyone else's answers, so you get my uninfluenced opinion. In the first photo you linked to, my guess was 22 years old. The second photo is hard to judge because your eyes are covered, and eyes (to me) say a lot. The last photo, you look a bit older, more like 25-27 years old. Off to read the other replies.

I'm 31, almost 32.

I was just wondering because this week I had 3 different people at 3 different times tell me that I look like I'm in my early 20s and too young to have 4 kids. It was like bizarro world, because I think I'm looking much older these days. I'm sure part of it was people being nice, but to hear it from different people in different situations was just odd.

Thank you for indulging me

Ha! I was speculating that we are all probably about five years older than the average of what people will tell us on these threads. Up to post #33 the average worked out to roughly 26.5. (Yes, I do have that much too much time on my hands right now. )

I was guessing honestly, I don't add or subtract when I guess ages. If I think someone looks really old I just don't post in that thread. HA.

(although I miss a lot of threads so if you don't see me post in your thread don't assume I think you look old!!)

im gonna be 31 in 2 weeks and i think its so much easier to tell when ppl are the same age as me. i think older ppl tend to think you are younger and younger ppl may be more likely to think you are a bit older. if i go to a store to by a bottle of wine and know i dont have my id with me i always pick a cashier that is about my age or younger....they will never card me. but if i pick a cashier that is over 40 then 9 times out of 10 i will be asked for my id.

i dont mind when ppl think im younger though

You look a little younger than me, so I'd say 24.

I was wrong but never guess "nice". I tend to look at eyes. When we would go to fairs we would usually have people guess 'H's age, he looks about 18-20 and is really 31, except he is starting to get lines around his eyes to show his age...which you don't have!

I admit, I already read how old you are. But... when I saw your first pic I immediately thought 17. The second pic I was thinking 20 max. LOL

I look young for my age, or so I'm told. I'm 27 and I get carded a LOT. When I was 20 and 9 months pregnant I went to lunch with my mom. The lady that was ringing us up asked my mom if I was over 13 so she could charge us appropriately! LOL

Actually, my first guess in the photos without sunglasses was 30, but I changed it to "28-30" because I didn't want to offend you if you were in your 20s.

35 was my actual guess for the sunglasses photo. That just happened to be the first one I clicked on.

You look great!

NO WAY!

I thought you were younger than me, and I'm 27.

Good for you!

My guess is 29/30.

You look a lot like someone I know, but I don't know how old she is.

Ok, now I get to go check and see how close I was.

ETA: Hey, not bad. You really fall in a range. My big range was 28-33. But I felt like it would be cheating to use the whole range. I'm usually pretty good a guessing ages, but you look really good for your age so it's a bit difficult to tell.

The answer to this question is always 26, I've found. My initial thought was 25, but then I figured you might be as old as 30. Age is hard to judge. I think it's more a matter of what we think someone should look like. 30 isn't that old, and most people aren't really showing much aging at 30, but if you call a 25 year old 30, she might feel like you are saying she looks like an old hag, so 26 is always the safe answer. Then if the person is only 22, you can blame it on the lighting in the photo.

I guessed 28, and that it won't ever matter how old you are because you are so pretty!
