Meeting online people in real life is a very odd thing. Heck, even seeing someones picture or hearing their voice is strange enough if you had no prior knowledge of how a person you've been interacting with looks/sounds, as it's often much different then you would expect.

A couple years back I was a guest on the Final Fantasy Union podcast for their Trivia segment.  I got a few online buddies from Final Fantasy Radio to listen and they were like "You sound so... normal."  Like they were disappointed.  Weird.

I posted a bunch in this thread lately, but didn't post a recent photo.  This one was taken back in April:

https://teamevesham.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/2016-04-24-08.54.33_25pc_crop.png

Not as skinny as I used to be back in 2010-2011 (I'm currently in the 185lb ballpark), but I'm working to get back to my "climbing weight" range of 155-165 lbs. 

I have a funny feeling my appearance in real life is close to how people on the forums imagine me.

I had something like that once. "You look much cuter than I thought you would!" "I never thought I'd say this, but... cute picture!"

I'm not sure what people were expecting...

And this other time, people thought I was a dude, and after posting my picture someone still thought I was a dude. Do dudes have cute white bangs framing their androgynous face? Okay, no wait, don't answer that.

Anyway, I have an important question: Do I look like a minor? I've been asked for ID way too many times the past few years.



Personally, I think I look a bit younger than I actually am, but I definitely look over 20, and not in a 'a mature looking 17-year-old' kind of way.

That picture makes you look ~22, but some of the other pictures you've posted before from different angles make you look like you're still in high school.

Thanks :) I'm not entirely sure I'll ever be able to believe am I actually cute (despite me jokingly labeling myself as such on more than one occassion), but that doesn't make it less nice to hear.

In any case: it's really that bad, huh? I used to be totally okay with it, but it's starting to make things a little weird. In groups I'm often treated as one of the youngest, even when I'm nowhere near it. I fear I'll get too comfortable in that role.

On the one hand, looking younger than you really are is great because most people have a negative view of aging.  On the other hand, a youthful appearance denies you veneration.  I like the fact that though I'm in my late 30s, people think I'm in my mid to late 20s.  And this past school year was the first since I started working at this school that I was never once mistaken for a student, and I was happy about that because I felt like I finally earned some veneration and can be taken a little more seriously.  My first 3 years working there, I was mistaken for a student at least once.

I like having a beard. It's the easiest way to look older. When I shave I look like I did in high school again...hell I've pretty much looked exactly the same since the 10th grade except I have a full beard now. It's nice to be able to jump back in time like that...

Oh and Tomara, you're very cute, even if you do look like you should be in high school still.

Although I'm sure this comes as no surprise, I enjoy your fashionable glasses, Tomara.

It would give you a rugged, manly edge, for sure.

Well, the family does have good beard-growing genes, but my dad gets mistaken for Santa/a terrorist year round, so I'm not sure the pros outweigh the cons. Worse, I might be tempted to wear my hair in a bun and be mistaken for a spiritually enlightened glunte-intolerant vegan.[/quote]
