How often do people assume you to be way younger than your actual age?

I have been told I have strong features my entire life (eyes, eyebrows, jawline, mouth, etc). I am half Italian. With that being said, from age 17 and up nobody can usually determine my age. I’ve kind of always looked the same just more mature if that makes sense.

Other than that I look my age or younger I believe from what I’ve heard. However, everyone always thinks I’m older. Almost never fails. Just a few years older than I am and it’s always been that way. As a woman, I have always asked why in case it’s something with the way I look. The response I have always received is pretty much “I am surprised. You carry yourself like you’re older. I thought you were X but just looked younger.”

So in short it’s how you carry yourself.
