Fountain of Youth

Today's topic: Is your avatar more or less your current biological age? Do you portray a younger avatar, or older? Why is this?

I never really thought about my avatar's age before. I change my avatar every now and then, but my usual avatar looks to be in the early-mid 20s (about 5 years younger than I am in RL). It's easy to make an avatar look young because most skins are flawless and don't have wrinkles. Even when I try to make my avatar look my RL age, my avatar still looks younger. I've met people whose RL ages ranged from 20-70, but most avatars I see around the grid look to be about 20-30.
