LYING ABOUT AGE ON DATING PROFILE! Page 2 of 18    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18)
No one has ever shown me a picture of what I am supposed to look like at my age , so I don't know if I look my age or not.
I do know, I have been a daughter, a wife, a mother and now a grandmother. I have cried, Laughed, worried and been stressed and I am sure it that it shows. But I'm happy to have been able to have those experiences and hopefully will have many more.
So, you can judge me on my age, it is right there on my profile for all to see.
For those of you that say age is just a number, why lie about it? I won't judge you on that, but I will judge you for trying to start something based on a lie.
Be happy you have made it how ever far you have. Consider the alternative.

People who lie about age, height, occupation, education, interests, skills, accomplishments, not smoking or anything else to attract someone in their scope, will soon be shuttled to the end of the line, when their lack of transparency is discovered. They are likely thinking you will meet... and suddenly the fact that they are 15 years older than previously claimed will be overlooked because of their multitude of other charms.

Not so....the mind becomes too distracted by the deception to be able to consider any of their other potentially attractive attributes. All you can think is....WTF was this dude thinking and how can I extricate myself from this situation??? Yes....that is what we are thinking. So, get editing those profiles and stop with the BS. There is infinite more possibility in reality than your fantasies.

Lots of things are slightly off in my profile - including age, sign, zip code, etc. I state that in the body. However, this profile is here for the use of the forums. When I had a real dating profile, everything was spot on. Even now if someone contacts me, I'm upfront in the first or second email.

I find this so very interesting. I'm not meaning you personally, I mean your tactic. Your logic (I think is what I mean). You clearly state that you are upfront in the first or second email, yet in your profile:

I will be very cautious revealing personal information at first, since that would link the identifiable me with the outlandish stuff I'm likely to write.

You clearly state you won't be divulging anything without caution. You claim to be posting outlandish stuff in here (I don't think it's outlandish, but we all view those things differently) you state you're here for forums, but you add in there "primarily" in the first sentence of your profile, which is an immediate indicator to me that you are here for multiple reasons (which is great, it's a dating site) ~ but yet you hold firm to some "mysterious" stranger thing? The only question I'd really like an answer to? Is it working for ya? Really? I mean in the vast number game here, I think most people need an angle. Maybe the key is what you're doing ~ be slightly available, yet aloof, disengaged, distant, whatever ~ but get the mail coming into the inbox and see what the bait might catch. I think it's brilliant if it's working. If it isn't, hmmmm ~ I dunno.

~OT~ I think most people lie to some degree. I obviously lie about my city of origin (we lost a fellow-forum poster when her stalker found her via her city/state on her profile here, since then I leave my city off.) I don't list my profession, if I have a car, my level of education, etc. Those are things that I discuss if/when there is a reason to do so. It's quite rare that interest gets to that point for me here ~ I'm not opposed to it once there is established communication, I might even mention my son's real name (not likely for a LONG time, but maybe.) Anonymity is a little different than out-and-out deception. I don't see age-lying as a way to anonymity. JMO

For me,a man lying about his age isn't as much about the deceit (although it's a big red flag) as much as the type of man I'm interested in and drawn to. I'm drawn to men that are confident and comfortable with themselves. They don't have to be Adonis, a CEO, etc. But they need to be comfortable in their own skin, because I'm also a confident lady.
So I feel that if a man needs to lie about his age, for whatever reason, he's not happy with himself.

In less than a year, I've had the majority of men I've communicated with turn out to be older or much larger than they professed. That's not even gettting into the men that temporarily changed their location or marital status. Really a sad commentary for online dating, if you ask me.
I did get a chuckle that the majority of posters are women, and also that living in the Los Angeles area was an excuse for lying. Maybe if you're an actress...but for finding a relationhship? Are you serious?

I haven't encountered as much lying about age as much as I have encountered lying about body type and of all things ... height.

Many men see their 50 - 60 pound bellies as "A Few Extra Pounds" and then add about 3" to their real height.

I have encountered men who write "Average" weight (but I can already see on the picture they are overweight) and who write they are 5' 9" (for example). Since for a long time, I really made it clear that all I was seeking was friends, I wasn't too concerned about it, but I admit that I do confront men who lie.

When I meet them and they appear to be 11 - 12 months pregnant, I do let them know they lied. When I meet them and they are able to look me in the eye while I am sporting sandals (I'm 5' 3")... I let them know they lied.

Then of all things ... some say ... "Well, I wasn't sure exactly how tall I am." That's when I look at them and say ... "Then you haven't been to the doctor lately ... right? I happen to know (as a nurse) we are required to weigh each patient at every visit and once per year, we measure their height ... and we tell them what it is."

BTW ... some actually joke and say ... "What are a few inches one way or the other?" And then I say, "Sincerely? In some cases it makes a 'big' difference ... but I don't take yardsticks on my dates."

Anyways OP ... the lying is very common and yes, they do it so they can get younger ladies to sit up and take notice ...

I have so many friends on here that are so turned off by it ... and we also all agree that those who are lying about something so obvious ... are bound to be lying about other things that are not so obvious.

Bottom line ... they cannot be trusted. Give them all kinds of space.

And the same thing has happened to me over and over with women that I have met from this site.

Much heavier, not fit, not as educated as they put on their profile, and yes, not the age that they have listed.

I think, for the most part, that men will fudge their height, and condition out of wishful thinking, and women will their weight/body type, and age, out of wishful thinking about the selection process as well.

Do I think that ALL these people can not be trusted? No......I just think most of them do not want to be eliminated from the selection process without a chance to meet and find out first.

Maybe we are all delusional to some degree, and see ourselves in a mirror of our total history, and not reality, or maybe we just want to be given a chance? No matter which way it is, I will give the benefit of the doubt until I meet them, and then let reality and how it affects me take over.

If I am attracted to someone, meet them and it still exists, and the chemistry gets to be there, along with compatibility, I truly do not care about their age, condition, or height, if I am still wanting to be with them. The point here is to get to that situation of finding out.

It is amazing to me though, that so many on here will cast those stones when I am not so sure that they do not live is glass houses as well, and there are many parts of ourselves that we do not divulge, until the time is right.

I do not want to be excluded from anyone's list because of my age, height, or weight, until they meet me in person and then decide. It can be so disconcerting to be in the mix with those that are happy with me, enjoy me, and want to know me, and see no real difference between us, but on here, I can not even talk to them or be able to give either one of us that choice.

So cotter, my dear friend, I know my true worth, and my ability to be kind and trust worthy, and somehow I know that many would be happy to know me, no matter my age, if they would just take the time to find out, and I am sorry that you do not feel that way.

Just my opinion........

PS........And as one that has been on here for years and years, and played with the age thing, when we could, from 30 all the way to 99, I am sorry that POF will not allow us to change category once more.......for my reality as well.

OP, I had one guy do the same thing to me. He had on his profile that he was 10 years younger than he actually was. When a situation came up that he had to give information to someone about his identity and I was there, the age popped up on the screen and I asked him about it. He acted like it wasn't a big deal that he had lied to me and even insisted lying about age was not a lie...I just couldn't believe I was actually hearing that. It was a big deal to me...not the age, but the lie. I told him I didn't care about his age, but I did care a great deal that he lied to me. He just couldn't get what I was saying and thought nothing about lying. I told him that when someone lies about a minor thing like age, the other person will wonder what else they are lying about. He got all bent out of shape and accused me when he was the one at fault. He said that I never asked him about his age, so it was my fault. I asked him why that would be necessary when I read it on his profile...or as least read what I thought was his age on it. He also had a very inflated ego, so maybe that has something to do with it. He told me that he looked younger than he was, so he put the age he thought he looked...another excuse. He had the twisted idea than his chronological age was not his true age, but the age he thought he looked was...the guy also had some issues more than just age denial. He also added several inches to his height, exagerated his fitness level, and told me he was very good looking, which is for others to judge, not him. He was so confident that he was right about the lying about age that he told his teenaged son about my reaction and was joking about it when he told me his son said that my reaction was normal considering what he had done. I broke up with him shortly after that incident. If someone will lie about small things, how can you trust them with more important things. He is on here under a new name/profile and new age...still younger than he really is but this time 5 years younger instead of 10. Some people will never learn...just be yourself and stop lying. Eventually you will be found out and could lose the person you really care about because of dishonesty.

If someone lies to their children about the Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy, or Santa, does that make people wonder what else they would lie about?

You're comparing apples with oranges, we engage our children's imaginations and need for story-telling. Deliberately misrepresenting yourself to somebody you're hoping to get to know is fraud.


My profile is a great example of an outright lie. I deliberately lied about my profession, as so many others do. Does it mean I'm a compulsive liar?

Doesn't make you a compulsive liar, just makes you an ordinary one.


Nope, I'm basically a very honest person,

You've just admitted to deliberately lying on your profile and you're defending people who lie on their profile.


If something, i.e. absolute truth on a profile, is important to you, put it on your own profile. That way, a person who knows they are lying can either tell you right up front, or won't waste their or your time.

Ummm, are you saying you have to actually ask someone not to lie to you for them not to lie? And if you specifically ask the liars not to lie, they won't? That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard, if you read a person's profile you are entitled to expect at least the basics to be accurate!

The OP has a valid complaint, the sense of entitlement these people have when they've been caught-out is amazing to the point of being delusional.

Nobody says you can't put your best foot forward, but people who deliberately misrepresent the basic stuff like age, height, weight, marital status etc, deserve all the crap that comes their way.

You hit on the word I needed in my last post...delusional. The guy I mentioned was definitely delusional about himself. I agree with you that anyone who is not upfront about the basics deserves whatever they get and that we shouldn't have to ask if the basics on the profile are correct. The response I got from the guy who lied to me about his basics was that I never asked if his age was correct. I knew the height and body type was a lie as soon as I saw him and did point it out as gently as possible. It's to their advantage to be honest or they will lose in the end, but they never think about that.

In an ideal world, this would work. I have this in my profile, but some men have chosen to ignore it, anyway. Go figure.

Cynderella....you are a beautiful woman, and I respect your choices. But...I am going to use you as an example here, ok?

Your profile says 39, but you just admitted you like to "keep 'em guessing."

You are beautiful, regardless of whatever number you are...however, if I had to hazzard a guess from a quick glance at your photos, I would say 44 to 46.

And you look AWESOME for such! For 39...you look like a ton of other 39 year olds. LOL

I'm gonna sign off on this as...I rather be honest, than guessin!

Yes, I lied at first. I said I was 39 but really I am 44. I had to delete my account in order to go back and change it. People are always telling me that I look like I am in my mid-thirties so I thought I would use that to my advantage. I was wrong. The one person I really liked from here found out the truth when I eventually told her. Now we no longer speak. Too bad because we seemed to be having a great exchange of long, well thought out messages to each other. It is a shame that I am now considered evil to her. Funny thing is, she is 44 also.
Oh well, I would'nt judge a person to harshly if they lied a bit about their age. I figure if they can pass for it go ahead. Obviously if they stated they are 10, 15 or 20 years younger then they really are it gets to be a bit silly do'nt you think?

While ALL the info in my own profile IS accurate, I don't have a problem with a woman "fudging" her age so long as she can PULL IT OFF. Meaning, the proof is in the pudding - how "old" or more specifically how GOOD does she look? In person. The pic quality here is marginal at best so I do not put a lot of faith in them myself...

I have seen women at PoF parties that "look" MUCH older than their profiles claim. I also have met a couple of 61 yo ladies that would put 75% of the fortyish women on here to shame both in face and body. Granted, good genes and/or bone structure are simply luck of the draw. But those factors alone won't keep a woman in "good shape."
Chances are, an "appropriate" lifestyle and eating habits as well as "regular exercise" of some type are the WHY of how they are so well preserved.

I have read numerous profiles where women state somewhere in the profile that their age is "not accurate". That is more than fair, I feel because only an imbecile would contact someone [with the intent of possibly meeting at some point in time] without reading the ENTIRE profile. Of course people looking for "friends" or just wanting to "type endlessly" have no need for reading a profile. I also think any pic over 6 months old should be dated.

IMO, someone's age ONLY tells the year they were born. In the grand scheme of things, does it matter if someone grew up with or without color tv or 8 tracks or cassettes or CDs or ...

urgood, you got what you deserved for lying to her. What difference did it make what her age was if she told you her correct age? Sounds to me like you're using that as an excuse. Her age has nothing to do with your lying about yours. She didn't care about your age...she cared about your lying about it. That is why she no longer speaks to you. It had nothing to do with your age. I get told I look much younger too, but I don't lie about my age. Like I told the guy who lied to me about age and a few other things, age is today minus the day you were born...nothing else. It has nothing to do with how you look or think you look. You started the potential relationship with a lie and lost someone who might have been right for you. I hope you learned from that lesson.

Anyone who says someone else changed their profile age, is a true BIG FAT LIAR and I would call them on it. LOL First of all....someone would need their password. Secondly, you can only alter the age for (if memory serves me correctly) up to two weeks after creating your profile. (So people cannot manipulate the age for search reasons)

I do not like, I do not fluff, I do not manipulate the truth. Everything on my profile is HONEST (or an obvious JOKE! lol) and the things I choose not to include, are disclosed later, in email or in person. (which there really aren't any with the exception to the "car" question.)

I think it is PLAIN SILLY, especially so, when it comes to ones AGE. I mean, unless you are here simply to talk/email with absolutely no intention of a relationship....do whatever you want. But lie to ME about your age, and you will lose my trust. I have NEVER had someone do such (as an interest...I do know of women who do this) to me personally....however I HAVE been suspicious of a few who made themselves look OLDER.

First let me say, the age stated on my profile is correct. I was accused by a pof guy of posting a pic. that was 20 years old, he said don't you think if we met I would notice. The answer is of course he would..... What he failed too notice was, most of my pics. are dated and from a pof function. I have also been e-mailed by several saying ,check my age on my profile, as the numbers were reversed. Personally. I would rather look younger than my age...and be told that...than say I were younger and look much older.The bottom line for me is......I would not want a man who would filter out woman my age, that tells me he is looking for younger...a. too try too keep him young....b. he has no clue what someone his own age has too offer.....c. he is just a player wanting a young girl on his arm....or for many other reasons.

As for a man lying about age,height,weight....etc. A LIE IS A LIE...I have met several on this site who lied about all the above. By the time you reach my age...you know what you like and what you are attracted too and what works for you. Some men apparently think..oh once she meets me she will like me because I am a decent guy....it won't matter that I am 70 and not 57 as my profile stated...it won't matter that I am 5ft 7 and not 5ft 10....and of course the extra 50lbs. won't count against me............WRONG.....we are a visual society...both men and women, and we all are attracted too different looks. So why lie...there is someone out there for us all...why not tell the truth and look for the person who will appreciate you as you are........................

^^ LOL....greyhound/greyhound bus...hilarious! I keep my pics current...posting ones from those mentioned parties, Tom! LOL I think including DATES on pics is smart...but I lately, have been posting ones that are not exactly the most flattering because of the whole "in person" versus "in photo" aspect.

One thing I WILL say is...some men (and women prolly do too!) look at pics and get a "fantasy image" of the person....THEIR OWN FAULT. I mention in my profile and I tell people when we get to discussing meeting...I am 30 pounds overweight...combo of quitting smoking, winter, less active, etc...yet I think I have disappointed some, at some point and time. Can't say it was from lack of honesty in portraying myself. :)

Response to Jasmina,
Yeah, I got what I deserved, learned my lesson, changed my profile and now that woman is gone for ever. But I am not heart-broken over it. Chill out people. I still bet I was the best man for her regardless what most of you hypocrits say. Listen to all of you jump on the band wagon acting like you never told a lie in you life. It is laughable.
She would have had a lot of fun with a guy like me now she will never know. Possibly end up with some guy who acts perfect all the time and is so damn incredibly nice. She 'll get bored real fast with that. At least I fessed up before we even met. If she thinks I am too horrible to talk to because of it then she should step aside and quit wasting my time. I can't be with someone that fickle. After all, I just fibbed by just 5 years, big deal. Most of the females on here are obviously lying about there age among other things. No big problem for me. I do not mind if women lie about their age at all. They are either attractive or they are not. Period.
Funny how the ones that complain the most are the first ones
to stand up and yell " age is just a number".

FOR URGOOD...and all on this forum.

So..you say you don't mind a woman lying about her age..so how about her weight, that should be ok too. Right? Or do we draw the line at age, because that's what you lied about? Can't wait till you expect too be meeting a 5ft 5 125lb 40yr. old babe and she turns out too be a bbw of 225....(For all you big and beautiful this is not anything negative about you)...and is closer too 50 and only 5ft 2. Think you'll be a little disappointed?
I am confused you said she should ,step aside and quit wasting your time. Is she still contacting you? If not ,she apparently has already kicked YOU too the curb. Why would you call her fickle. Seems like she was the honest one.
As for the rest of us being hypocrits.....I am sure all on here will agree..we have all told lies. NOW ,there are lies and there are lies. ie. Yes honey ,you look beautiful in that dress (you really think it makes her butt look big..but she likes it..so I won't hurt her feelings)...No hon ,I don't think that guy is as handsome as you..he is drop dead gorgeous...but I won't hurt my mans feelings).....I finished the report yesterday...have not even started...the check is in the mail. I think you get the picture. Good for you that you learned your lesson . As for her possibly meeting the perfect all the time,incredibly nice guy.....trust me if that happens she won't be bored. Now before you tell me I am male bashing.....If you were a woman I would be telling you the same thing...................just my opinion.......

I agree 100% with Angeleyes....of course everyone has told a "lie" of some sort. But it is a HUGE difference when you "lie" to protect the feelings of someone you care about, or you "lie" to make yourself seem more appealing or a better person. (Ick on the latter!)

Psychologist who specialize in family and romantic relationships, say it is ok to "fudge the truth" in certain situations and ALL of those situations are when it is protecting someone's feelings, or small pleasantries ("It's no problem at all, really!)....The major difference between a white lie and a hard lie is that a hard lie is said to protect oneself, whereas a little white lie is said to protect someone else.

Telling someone you are younger (or older!) in order to try and score with them...is not doing them any favors. Urgood, YOU might think you would have been perfect for her...but really, you only sounded egotisitical saying such! I mean, if it was THAT good, she WOULD have let it slide. Especially such a small number of four years?? Maybe it really was just an OUT for her?? Hmmm....

Gentleman^^^^^^^^^^^
I'm sorry, but your thinking is a bit warped here. Who chooses who you ask out on a date? Isn't it you? So then it's your choice to choose to meet women who don't have the same level of physical fitness as you - age is irrelevant in that. If I met you thinking you were 51 and you told me you were 61, I'd end the date.

Think aboutit this way: If you want to date women in a certain age range, that's your choice. Isn't it also our choice? Or are you saying if you met a 41 y.o. woman and found she was actually your age, you'd be okay with it, or would you jump on your preconceived notions of her based on her age?

The only line more overused and tired than "I like walks on the beach" is "But I feeeeeeel like I'm 40."

There's no definition of any particular age - what shape you're in is determined by how you take care of yourself. Maybe you're comparing yourself at a certain age to your parents at that age? And hopefully, with age comes wisdom, so I'm never embarrassed by my age as I've lived a great life and take experiences as chances to learn and become a better person. I get told in person that I look much younger, but wouldn't think of putting my age as younger.

The reason I have age limits in my profile is not for fitness levels, (because that can be learned via pictures and a few initial questions before meeting) but because I've learned there's a limit to generational gaps that will and will not work for me.

LYING ABOUT AGE ON DATING PROFILE!

Exactly^^....and, add to that, when it gets down to it...those who lie about their age for "search purposes" and narcisstic reasonings of being soooo freaking great for your age...also have major sense of entitlement syndrome! You think since YOU want it, you should HAVE IT, with no regard to the other parties feelings. I do not care what you hiked, how well you maintain, or feeling like you are 40....I would feel raped of my CHOICE if I were to be misled into a date with the likes of you (or others).

Why? Because guess what?? I FEEL 30 sometimes...and sure as fvck look younger!

Quit fooling yourselves, and call a spade a spade. Argh...have the perfect match for Gentleman....a fellow LIAR, but I won't break rules and name her. The two of you would get along famously! You could look in the mirror and tell eachother how wonderfully you have aged. *gag* In this day and age...everyone is aging wonderfully. Sheesh...this website is FULL of gorgeous men and women who look nothing near their age...and are often accused of LYING since THEY DONT FUDGE IT.

Here we go again.....GENTLEMAN.....this is for you.

First of all I take offense at the remark about woman in their 50 and 60's activity level, or lack of according too you. Some of us run circles around younger women. Myself included. I do 400 crunches 3 times a week.... as part of my exercise routine....would dance every night if I could find some old guy too keep up with me....enjoy running and long walks...and I look like I'm in my 40's..and more importantly feel and act it. BUT ,I would never consider lying about my age. I look at it this way IF A GUY DOES NOT WANT A 60 something yr . old, why would I want him????????????? We all age differently. some have better genes and take better care of themselves. I hope too meet the guy who can keep up with me in every way.......
Read my previous post..................................this could be done too you someday, and you may not like it....<img src=http://www.plentyoffish.com/smiles/icon_27.gif borde
