    Well, ask this because i am 17 but i still feel like a kid, ironic because i don't like kids but i'm really innocent, and like teddies and still I feel like a child, like 10 or 12; still i miss too much my five years and it is like i want to be forever there; i don't feel identified with the typical stereotype about teenagers from this era (except for the fact i'm a really emotional-screaming girl) and feel like i'm younger. Do you feel younger or older than you really are?

    Just turned 30 and I still feel like I'm about 18, albeit a little wiser and more confident than my 18-year-old self.

    Much younger. Almost feel like an 18 year old inside a late 20's body (not literally, but it feels that way at times)

    Younger on all counts - Inside I feel like I'm about 19-20 and look about the same.

    I'm 26, sometimes I feel about 80. Most of the time I feel about 19-20.

    Mentally more mature, but very naive.

    I'm about right physically though.

    I'm weird. In some ways, I'm like a 10 year old, but in others, I'm more like 30. My overall word choice and intellect is usually very advanced, this scentence being case in point. I also can't stand people my age. Teenagers are so stupid and immature. However, I get excited about things like a ten year old, be it a new game, toy, or just discovering a new concept. It's weird

    It depends - I can thoroughly embarrass my friends by acting like a 12 year old, but other times I can act like a grouch. In terms of maturity (not starting shit, being rude, money wise etc) and stuff I've gone through I'd say I'm pretty old.

    I feel younger, though that's probably because of my inexperience with just about everything. I like to think I look younger than my age though.

    Felt old until 10 years ago. Had heart surgery to fix a birth defect. Since then have felt like I'm half my age. A lot of energy now. Am told I look younger than my age would suggest.
