Urgent help required?

There are some people I meet that are always asking about my age, which I hate answering because I look older than my actual age. What should I say next time when people ask without giving out my actual age? Is there a way to avoid this question or to counter politely? I'm going to be asked this question again at my birthday party which I hate answering. Pls help

    You may make it a humour by saying you are 100 years old by laughing.

    Or you can be serious and say "please dont ask" by smiling and shaking your head. Then the other person will ask why. To this you can say 'just dont please'

    and he will stop asking.

    Tell them that you're old enough to know better, but you're young enough not to care. ]

    "I'm twenty-five again" or "why do you want to know" or "you tell me how old you are and I'll tell you how old I am."

    It's a birthday party. People ask your age!

    Just reply "Old enough."

    Or "Older than you."

    Or "One doesn't ask a lady."

    You could just ask them why they need to know?

    If it's a birthday party (& you're not an adult) it's reasonable to ask a person's age, but however old you are you could always tell them 'I'd rather not say'.
