9 Things Girls With Baby Faces Are Tired Of Hearing

Having a baby face can have its perks. You’re in that “forever young” mentality because we know that we’ll still look the same for the next 20 years of our lives, but it can get annoying to hear people comment on how young you look. After a while, you’re well-aware of what your face looks like and you wish people would stop commenting on it. These are the things that girls with baby faces are tired of hearing – they happen more often than you’d think.

  1. “You’re so cute!” We don’t want to be cute, we want to be beautiful, hot or sexy. “Cute” is like the PG-version of saying that a girl is good looking. Why does having a baby face always have to correlate with the term “cute”? It sounds like you’re talking to a puppy. Pick a different adjective.
  2. “I can’t take you seriously when you’re angry.” Having a baby face doesn’t me make any less angry when I’m already legitimately angry. And you should take me seriously, because the more you point out the fact that you can’t take me seriously because of my face, the more pissed off I’ll be.
  3. “Maybe you should try wearing more makeup.” What if I like the amount of makeup that I already wear? Or what if I just like the way my face looks and I don’t want to wear any makeup? It sucks that I have to resort to painting my face to make myself look more grown up.
  4. “Just wear heels more often.” As if wearing heels would change the way my face looks. Instead, I’ll just be in pain while still having a baby face. Yes, heels might make you look more womanly as a whole, but with a baby face, it just makes me look like a kid playing dress-up.
  5. “I thought you were so much younger!” Thank you, but I don’t know if I should be offended or flattered. How much younger did you think I look? It’s hard to tell how old a person is just by their looks, especially if they have a baby face, so try to avoid saying this to me.
  6. “You look like you’re still in high school.” Why do people always feel the need to throw this one in? Yes, I am aware that I look young, but please don’t be condescending about it. I may look like I’m in high school, but I’m not, so please don’t treat me like I am.
  7. “You’re going to look like that forever.” Is it really so bad to look young even when you’re in your older years? Isn’t that what people strive for in life, anyway? If anything, I’ll take this one as a compliment, because when I’m 80, I’ll look 40, and when you’re 80, you’ll probably just look 80.
  8. “You’re like a little sister to me.” I’m not sure what’s worse; when a guy that I have a crush on says this or a friend who’s the same exact age as I am says this. I don’t want to be viewed as a “little sister”. It makes me feel like a kid. 
  9. “ID, please.” No matter how old you get, getting checked for ID when you go to a bar is something that will inevitably happen from time to time. It just sucks when you’re the one in your group of friends that everyone knows will be ID-checked the second you get to the door, so always come prepared to show it.
