So you meet this incredible person on the Internet. You go on a couple of dates.
Everything is great.

You think they’re a certain age because they listed it that way in their profile. Then, all of a sudden, you’re about to get close and intimate and they drop the age bomb on you. They say something like, “You know, I’m not really 39. I’m really 47.”

How do you feel about that? How do you feel when someone does that to you?

How do I feel when someone tells me they’ve been lying about their age on the Internet? I tell them to immediately stop lying about their age.

What that says to someone is that you might be lying about other things – and that you’re willing to lie in general. Nobody wants to start a relationship on a lie.

Relationships are tough enough, but starting one off on a lie just makes it that much tougher. It’s going to bring back emotional trigger points of all the bad relationships and all the lies that someone told them in the past. Then you’re going to have to start talking your way out of this, and convincing them that this so-called lie was a one-shot deal.

You’re 47. You’re not 39. If you desire to date people that much younger than you are then you need to go about it by showing people how young you are in person and attract them that way.

When it comes down to the Internet, you need to really be honest about your age. Actually even if you meet someone in a bar (or in any other place), you need to tell the truth about your age too. Once again, if you look amazing for your age then you will attract those younger people you want by your appearance and your demeanor.

Lying about your age basically will give you an uphill battle with any person you start dating. So be proud of how old you are, and realize that whatever age you are is exactly where you need to be.
