    So I just turned 36 and I feel like it's time to start lying about my age. Is there a convention on this? Should I lie outrageously or only by a couple years? Should I lie and say I'm older? How did YOU decide when and how much to lie about your age?

    Just keep it simple. Choose 1900 as the year you were born.

    After 35, it really is fairly pointless, unless your target demographic is a decade younger.

    Speaking of target demographics:
    Probably just me, but I think the 30's is gay purgatory. Guys in their 30's don't want to date each other. Guys in their early thirties are still chasing after 20-something bois. And guys in their late 30's are chasing after older guys in their 40's. icon_lol.gificon_confused.gif

    YES, everybody might as well lie about their ages because most guys won't even consider having you as a friend, much less a hookup, or a partner if you're older than they are.

    Personally i happen to like older men, age is not relevant if you are honest from the start. If you lie, and fall madly in love and then decide to come clean or get caught, it really truly KILLS the trust and intimacy the other person has vested in you. They begin to question you and the whole relationship, and often times it leads to the rocks.

    Exactly.

    Don't lie. Even if you just want to fool around. Besides, you look attractive enough as it is to snag someone on looks alone.

    Just settle for a tattoo in a conspicuous place that says "Hi, I'm ........ and I am insecure about aging. Please tell me the age you want me to be and I will agree."

    TheGuyNextDoor saidWhat's the purpose in lying about your age if you plan to ever meet someone in real life? You can't hide your ID from them forever....icon_cool.gif
    Age, height, weight, all comes out when you meet face to face.


    ^^^ This.

    I can't imagine wanting to have anything to do with someone that doesn't like you for who you really are.

    Or are you just that vain?

    Guys, the OP was obviously being sarcastic, and not serious. Lets not go overboard here. He does however bring up valid points with his sense of humour

    I think you're 10 years too late to start lying about your age.

    Be upfront about it. I have to flash my I.D. at people sometimes to get them to believe me.

    Again, the protocol appears to be to subtract 15 years and add 2 inches.

    It's kinda pointless to lie about it but it's interesting how people make quick judgements based on age.

    If you look good for your age, using online methods to meet people can give you kind of a disadvantage as people can pass you over based merely on that number.

    Meeting someone in person is better because they'll assume you're younger and, by the time they get to know you, your age won't matter anymore.

    In the end, it all depends what you and the other person are looking for.
