    Suppose there are two, 30 years old females.
    One has been married for some years. The other has never been married nor ever been with a man sexually.
    Now, they stand beside each other, and you are not told, which one is the married one, and which one is the virgin.
    Question: are you able to distinguish who is the virgin, and who is the married woman only by looking at their appearance? If yes how?

    Do you consider having a hymen as an aspect of 'appearance'?

    It's far from a perfect signal, but it carries some information about sexual activity.

    Also, has the married one had children? You can look for stretch marks from pregnancy as an indicator.

    I personally feel I have been able with great accuracy to distinguish between the two. Even just from face pictures. Now, do not ask me, how many times I tried that, and why. It is a little private. But a woman to me always looks different from a girl. Specially if she is married more years. Even if she has not been pregnant before. They just look different, but it is difficult for me to describe.. The married women seem to have certain patterns that the girls do not.
    Well, in most countries, such as north America, it would be rare to find a 30 years old virgin girl, so, you won't have too many opportunities to compare. But among certain people such as Iranians and specially among Iranian Bahais, there is great possibility that if she is 30 and not married, then she is virgin. This is how I had the chance to compare many case, and can tell, they do look different! But, i am hoping to find a scientific reason for it.

    I actually would like to know since this is kind of weird.

    I'm not sure I like the idea of a bloke looking at me and trying to determine whether I'm a virgin. It's creepy.

    I guess it depends on how closely your look, and what at.

    The "girl vs woman" title of this thread is misleading because it refers to age.

    And as a note, the hymen can be broken in other ways besides sexual activity so that proves nothing definite.

    Not necessarily. I call myself a girl and I'm 23. I think it is an individual thing.

    You would be very lucky to find a 30 year old virgin, they are few and far between.

    Re your question, under normal circumstances, ie, clothed, no physical examination, no leading qustions, you can't tell

    Not 'funny' at all. Downright creepy. What kind of person goes around trying to tell whether somebody is a virgin or not? Hey, just a head's up ... it's absolutely none of your business.
