Demonkin age slower ?
I was wondering if anyone here is experiencing something similar . I'm a male currently 33 years old . It's not unusual that when I try to buy a lottery ticket that I get asked for ID . Thing is you only have to be 18 to buy a lottery ticket . Now my brother who is just a few years older than me is showing quite a few signs of ageing . His hair is thinning allot and he has gained quite a bit of weight . Obviously some of that is lifestyle but I do have to wonder sometimes .

I'm not suggesting that demonkin or other kin types don't age at all . I do look a bit older than when I was let's say in my early 20s . I just wonder if kin might age slower .

Re: Demonkin age slower ?
Some people look younger than they are just like some look older. Otherkin are all physically human and identity does not alter that fact. One of my friends is 6 years older than I am and she always gets carded for alcohol and I don't. She's plain old vanilla human (so to speak). So no, being otherkin has nothing to do with looking one's age or not.

For what it's worth, I and my close relatives all appear younger than we are, but I don't think it has to do with being demonkin (as far as I know, I'm the only one).

Re: Demonkin age slower ?
While it's something I've never considered, it may have some merit for me. Obviously, I'm physically human, but being 33 years old I could easily pass for mid-20's. Or maybe even younger given the right clothes. I'd just always attributed it to good genetics though as my mom also looks a lot younger than she actually is.

Re: Demonkin age slower ?
I'm not demonkin, but I'm here to add my two cents anyway.

It's funny that you should mention this, because I'm 31 and yet I've had atleast three people mistake me for a teenager. My sister, who is otherkin and is seven years younger than me, looks younger than most teenagers I've seen.

I don't know why this is or how it could possibly be related to being therian/otherkin. I'm still physically human, and I don't believe being therian/otherkin effects your DNA or genetics in some way.

I take it as a compliment, though, when people tell me they think I'm still in high school. My favorite time was when one of my neighbors stopped me and asked me how long I've lived here while I was out on a walk one day. I said I've lived here for about ten years, but only recently started going for walks. He acted like it was understandable that I only recently started going for walks and said, "Oh, of course you wouldn't be out walking by yourself then. You were probably just a little thing then, weren't you? Like about maybe eight or nine years old."

Re: Demonkin age slower ?
33 as well mate and while I currently get presumed to be younger than I am, I used to get read as older, meaning that I was the one to get smokes and alcohol for my friend group even if I was the youngest one in it because I never got carded.

RE: Demonkin age slower ?
This has been the complete opposite for me. Even early teens I was mistaken for a much older woman. I've found that it really vairies on what I wear (socal norm assumptions I'm guessing) that decides if i get age checked or not. For some reason if my hair Is down I'm more likly to be checked. Shrugs.

So more likly just a human socal thing rather than kin related

While I'm not a demon, I have always been mistaken as someone young. I've been told I simply look young and that when I'm older, will really enjoy that. Tongue Personally, I just want to look my actual age.
