This is for all the LIARS...

    I do my best to play "nice" and be upfront and honest with folks. So I have to say that I have a pet peeve about LIARS. You know who you are...you play games, you use dated pics or worse yet, someone else's. And on here, you're not verified.

    But I'd like to single out those who LIE about their age. WTF! And there are three kind of age liars I've encountered on RJ.

    1. The Underage Guys - These teenagers are posting that they are 18 or older and in a chat confess that they are younger. Guys, for you, I simply say go be a kid and come back in a few years.

    2. The "I Don't Want People To Know My Real Age Because I Might Not Make Someone's Age Cut-Off" Guys - Really? Do you think lying about your age makes you hotter? If someone wouldn't be looking for someone your age, do you really want to be with them? We all have our preferences which is fine, but why would you want to be with someone who doesn't want you (they are often a bit narrow-minded anyway) and what does that say about you (other than you're not to be trusted because you can't even be honest about your age)?

    And some of you have profiles that list that you are 35 or 45 or 55 and you look at least 10 years older... so either you've been rode hard and put up wet way too many times or you need to get a reality check.

    3. The "I Hate Age Discriminators So Won't Play The Game" Guys - These are the guys who say they are 99 or 100, clearly overstating their age to make a point. Usually these guys look better than their age and so in their blatant lie about their age, they are basically saying "fuck off." I understand your stance, but I have to say I think you are doing older guys a disservice.

    Wouldn't it be more effective to be PROUD of your age and be a role model for others? One of the reasons guys lie about their age is because of ageism in our community. So what if younger guys could see that life doesn't end at 30 or 40 or 50 and that there are men out there at every age that our vital and strong and authentic.

    So, here's my plea (although it may be on deaf ears)....if you're an age liar (or any liar), why don't you look yourself in the mirror and say, "Do I want to be a liar?" If the answer is "no," then start telling the truth...all the time. And that starts with the age you put on your RJ profile.

    Rant over! Peace out.
