    Ok, so I'm talking to this guy at the gym. He's at the front desk and we chat about my crazy hair.

    He's cute, great body...he's got it going on!

    He tells me his age is 35. I look at his face and think "Yikes!, That's a rough 35."

    After he checks in, the computer reveals his age at 42.

    I don't understand why somone would fake their age drastically lower than the real number - it makes them seem like a very old version of that younger age.

    I, however, have been able to pass as a 25 year old, but I always add 2 years to my real age to simulate a young version of that older age.

    Makes sense to me...icon_wink.gif

    I think giving someone an algebraic formula to figure out your age is the way to go.

    I always find it really lame when guys lie about their age. The exception would be someone under-age trying to score some booze. My boyfriend likes to trim his body hair really short and shave off all his facial hair, then tell people he's about 5 years younger than he is. I laugh and tell him gravity will only tolerate his lies for so long.

    Put it this way... The guy lied to you in your first conversation with him. If he's dishonest about something as silly as his age, there's no telling what kind of BS he's going to tell you to get in your pants. I vote you call him on it, and laugh to his ageing face. icon_wink.gif

    Guys usually tell me how young I am. Even when I tell them how old I am, they don't believe me so I let them think I'm in my 20s. If it makes them feel better; why not.

    They believe me when I don't shave, exfoliate, and moisturize though.

    My partner thought I was 31 when he met me. I had never said what my age was, so he was a bit surprised when I said I was almost 36.

    In actual fact I am a 60 year old lesbian trapped in a gay man's body. icon_razz.gif

    I firmly believe the reason people tell me I "don't look my age" is because people in their 50s and 60s say they are my age. I think I look exactly like 44.

    Men want sex.
    It is a common belief that young/younger men have the most sex.
    The most sex.
    (Forget that we should be concerned with having our better sex as opposed to a lot of sex.)
    Men want sex.
    Men will subtract from their age, whatever that age is, to get what they want, which is sex.
    Sex.
    The most sex.
    The most is not the best.
    But it is the most sex.
    Sex.

    I used to take some years off my age. I just hate getting older. But I stopped doing it. I figured I should be proud of my age.

    (now I will have to check my profile to see what age I filled in)

    I'm confused...so, you are complaining that someone lied about thier age, when you admit to lying about your own?

    While I don't really condemn men for shaving a few years off their age, I really don't get it. Who cares if your 35 or 42? I'd rather be truthful and have someone say, OMG, your 43, you look fantastic...

    Haha, I wasn't trying to "catch you" or anything I just happened to notice it and thought it was kinda funny. Regardless, you look great whatever your age is. icon_smile.gif

    Oh, and have a fantastic birthday!

    Haven't been able to pass for 39 for 25 years but still say i'm 39 if askedicon_lol.gif

    Doesn't really matter -- most guys under 25 think 39 is as old as 65icon_twisted.gif

    For the last year I had this fear no one would believe me when my age came up. I always felt the silent question of "Is this 39 again or 39 the first time?"

    I always thought that eventually it's going to be discovered in a relationship. I'm too lazy to do that much covering my tracks.

    Eh. I don't do much in the way of lying about anything. It's just too hard to keep track of the lies. The truth is easy to remember and I don't have to try to remember who I told what.

    Maybe I should start saying I'm 59 instead of 49, and then they'll REALLY mean it when they say I look great for my age!

    About 10 years ago I was doing my early morning run when this considerably younger guy caught up with me, slowed down to my speed, and said "You're going pretty fast." "I'm doing OK, but I'm not nearly as fast as you", I replied. Then he said "You know, you're my hero." And I asked: "Why in the world would you say that?. "Because I hope I can run like that when I get to your age", he answered. "Thanks!", I said. After we ran together about another 100 meters, he asked: "How old are you anyway?". "Almost 60", I replied. "OH", he said, "I thought you were a LOT older than that!".

    For some months now I've been telling people, with a straight face and brows raised in a I-dare-you-to-prove-me-otherwise expression, that I'm 16. "Yes. You might say that life's been rough, boo-hoo."

    Telling the truth is so damn complicated and explaining it now bores me senseless. Is there a way of revealing that you are in fact barely sixteen months old without arousing a flurry of questions?
