    Ok, I'm not 50, trying to look 25 again; I'm 17, trying to look 17, instead of 22 or 23, which is how I obviously seem to look.

    It's starting to get on my nerves, looking older than I am, having skeezy guys hitting on me because "hey, she's legal!!" Yea. I'm getting REAL sick of it.

    SOOO, can any of y'all think of ways I can look 17?

    I don't think I dress looking older than I am... Just spaghetti strap tanks and jeans with either flip flops or cute little heels I got from Wal-Mart. (um, $8 shoes? heeeelllll yes!)

    any ideas? Do I need to get braces again? Should my hair be in pigtails, and I wear a shirt that says "N'Sync 4 evaaa!!"?

    I want to look like the jailbait I am. I have 7 months left of it, and I want to not be hit on because I look "old enough" for the however many days left until I'm actually 18.

    Ideas? Comments? Suggestions?

    You'll have a different class of pervert running after you if you look older and dress like a little kid. [​IMG]

    :p

    Advice from a 42-year old -- may not be applicable.

    • Lose weight
    • Short (er) hair
    • Skincare regimen
    • Careful clothes shopping

    If I lose any more weight, I'll look like a stick figure. I'm already kind of thin...
    and shorter hair'll just make me look like a pumpkin head.

    the skincare, though... younger teens usually have pimply-tastic faces... should I try to cultivate a small patch of blemish so I look a little younger?

    You'll just have to post a picture so we can provide better input.

    I've never seen any pix of you. You could try ditching the heels and tops and going for slightly plainer fare...

    Jeez, I dunno -- weird topic for a 17yr old to be worrying about. You've got plenty of years ahead of you trying to look younger -- just stay out of that sun.

    She has one in her profile (I assume it's her).

    Can't give any good advice. I was often mistaken for being older than I was. Had nothing to do with clothing since I didn't dress like an adult. I still don't :p

    oh, honey, they're all sleazy.
    Don't even get me started.
    *hanging out car window as I walk to my car in the parking lot*
    "HEY MAMA! YOU NEED A RIDE IN MY PICK UP TRUCK? IT'S REAL NICE, IT HAS NO A/C!!"

    it's too hot in houston to even attempt to wear sleeves. It sucks. it's not the heat, it's the 140% humidity.
    if it gets any more humid, the air will turn to water, and we'll all drown. I KID YOU NOT!

    :( I'll just put my cute heels in the closet until I break them out for performances... but they're so cute! (haha, I'm a goobface)

    Have you ever thought that maybe a lot of those somewhat older guys that are trying to pick you up actually know that you may be underrage or close to it (between 16-18, lets say)??? :eek:

    sleazy guys will always hit on anything, regardless of how old/young you look.

    that's why they're sleazy

    I know this 50+ year old gives who likes 14 year olds. He likes to visit the local shopping malls because of all the school kids who spend their time there.

    Just sayin'...

    I'm moving to antarctica now. I will chill with the penguins.
    (haha! puns!)

    I will set up a wifi network, and it will be penguin-powered.
    It'll be like a hamster wheel, but a penguin will run in it.

    I'll put those good for nothing, flightless birds to work for me.

    **thought**
    If I didn't think/talk/know so much about alan greenspan, or the economy in general, would I seem younger?
    Although it would break my heart to not express my love for the G-span, or economy in general, I could do it.

    "Umm.. supply and... Supply? What? Umm... m/p=vq? Tee hee! The economy is for losers!"

    *shudder*
    and
    *has a single tear going down cheek*
    (I love you, economy. usted es como mi amante secreto, pero no un humano... y no tangible.)

    I completely agree w/ Abstract... I think those jerks know damned well that you are around that age and still proceed w/ their sleaze-ball sales. *shudder* The worst is when those nasty freakazoids hit on you even when you're w/ your bf/family (like parents)... :eek: Poor Katie. Maybe you should just horribly disfigure your face? Er... n/m.

    Where are you getting hit on? Maybe you shouldn't visit those places. I agree with others here, these pervs probably be know you are underage.

    Or you could stab a pencil/pen into their hand... or give them crazy paper cuts in the webbing between their fingers... or grab a ball in each hand and twist the two in opposite directions (w/ significant force, of course).

    It is unavoidable-- jerks can and will be found any and everywhere... Jamba Juices, malls, coffee shops... all over! *angry muttering* :mad:

    :edit: Here's another more... 'legal(?)' idea-- keychain mace/pepper spray. They sell smaller varieties that you can keep on your keychain 24/7. ;)

    Thanks.
