Do I look like a teenager?

Because I often get mistaken for one and I honestly don't see it at all. I think maybe I look a few years younger than I am but I do not think I look under 18.

Recently at my annual church conference many of the other pastors assumed I was a youth delegate until I was recognized as clergy during the setting of appointments.

Then today I went into the city that neighbors Mayberry to meet another pastor at his church. A woman there was running a food program which provides free meals for kids k-under 18 in the summer, since they're not getting meals at school.

This woman approached me and asked if I was waiting for the food program. At this point the other pastor introduced me as the Pastor of Mayberry.

It was hysterical, this poor woman was so embarrassed for having mistaken me for a high school student. haha...

That's too funny! Age is really hard to discern, I think. You look young, but I know you're not a teen: you're married, educated and have two children, but I'm not sure what I'd think if I just noticed you walking down the street or something.

You look young, but I know you don't dress like most teenagers today that should be people's first tip-off.

I've always been thought to be OLDER than I am. A friend and I went out to eat when we were 16 and 15, respectively, and they offered us the wine list and asked us what college we went to. It doesn't bode well for me in life lol

I'm not sure which is better.
