Would you meet someone whose profile says they are 10 years younger than they actually are?Page 8 of 8    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)

She told him why she did it, and he told us what she had told him. Clearly, her course of action was dictated by *FEAR* (of loneliness, being overlooked -- whatever), and *NOT* logic, Spock.

She was trying to make a logical connection about it, that's the point (emotively driven). She did the trick of giving an explanation that fits Another situation, not the one you're in. She said it was because less guys would write her online; she couldn't get the chance to meat them. Well, that's more understandable, but it was a A Year in an Established Relationship. That's fine if she said that on Date #1/#2/#3... but a year being BF/GF? No, that doesn't apply. So she actually Didn't tell him why she didn't tell him after they met. Only why that was her 10yrs-lower-age on her Profile.

Wait....you're here complaining because a guy lied about his age...is STILL younger than you and you LIED about your age in your profile?!?!?!?!

Wait, did she (OP)? I understand when the guy's Still younger than you even though he put an even younger profile age, that the OP shouldn't get riled up at all -- especially when he said that in his *1st* message to her. But where did she say she fibbed about her age in the profile?

unless he's so violent he's been in jail during that time. Then again, after a year, I've probably figured she's the type to prefer the axe murderers.

Yeah. 1 year later, "Oh, btw, my ex is getting out of jail next week. He was in for domestic abuse," would alarm me. But I wouldn't last 1 year with a gal if she desired axe murderers, in the end. If she preferred annoying guys with a big porn collection? Yeah, I'd be in like Flynn.

Meanwhile, at my age, most broads are wearing a bra that lies about the location of their b00bs :)

Or wearing jeans that gives the misconception about the size of their waist. Gals have more leeway about changing the #s when it comes to stuff in relation to attraction. Guys are Hissed at when anything like that is applied by them. :)

If your "loving" relationship with this age liar was so great, why are you not still with her?

to be fair, he was with her for several years. That enough takes away any default assumption that it was an age-thing. Not to say that it couldn't have played an underlying role... but several years is enough to say that the age-thing, especially when he just shrugged off that she's been lying about her age for a year, was a sticking point in a breakup. Plenty of other reasons why just about anyone breaks up after years together. But hey, maybe it was more of a fruitful but casual relationship and it hit the "super serious or bust" point.

Where did it go so wrong?
Oh ya that darn one year lie.

A little story....
My dear mother held the age
lie for many years. Till the day
she was in hospital for surgery.
Back in the day they posted your
age alone with your name at the
end of your bed. Her husband for
the first time became aware of her
age. He wasn't mad or felt duped.
He loved her no matter what.
Why did she lie....maybe to feel
good about herself.
She looked the lie so nobody really
knew.
I personally feel if on average you are
a truthful person the age lie is a personal
choice. No harm no foul.

Until it was, "Mom, why did you have triple by-pass surgery? You're only 45!" (then looking at clipboard) "Oh, you're 65! Okay, answer's right in front me..."

I think if you lie about your age on a big enough scale, and keep that when getting settled into a relationship -- it does play a big role. Big enough, it's "I was part of another generation." Sure, if she said she was 39 but she was really 42 when she met her husband, I can see that. But it's WTF if a gal said she was 39, but then after being BF/GF for some time, you find out she's really 59. :)

I've lied about my age to chicks, but I'd never go far into initial dates before I'd "correct" myself on it. Not much of an age difference anyway though... but I have forgot about it a couple times when the woman was older than me anyway, oddly enough. But it doesn't take much time for conversations to end up bleeding into revealing when you graduated high school, or how old you were when this-or-that happened, etc. I never tried to Hide it or "cover my tracks" -- unless it was a ripe young gal during the 1st few dates.

^^^^ You're the idiot, Arlo. Something happened to you. Just a few short years ago, you came across as a sharp cookie---but not anymore. When you cut off your long hair, your brain obviously went with it.

BTW, just because people might quote you, it doesn't necessarily mean they're agreeing with you.

Correct. She didn't give the explanation why she lied to him after they met & had some dates. She only told him why she lied on the profile (so more guys could write her; have a bigger dating pool), according to LL2L. Big difference. So she was actually Lying Again *if* that was her only explanation to LL2L, after being BF/GF for 1 year. If it was, it's just another red flag that I know I couldn't deal with. She's avoiding something Again. Yikes. Trust is out the window.

Bob: It's been a great year together. We should have an anniversary outing. Ya know, an excuse to get a little wild.

Sally: Yeah, that's great! It has been great!

Bob: One thing that's been in the back of my mind, though. You say you never had any kids. But for like the 3rd or 4th time, something from one of your relatives came up referring to a son of yours?

Sally: Oh. Yeah. (sigh) Okay, I'll be honest. I did have a son 5 years ago, and a daughter 3 years ago. My parents take care of them mostly, and they adopted them so I could have free time, go to school, work, and of course, date -- and meet a great guy like you!

Bob: Whoah. Wow. Okay. But why didn't you tell me?

Sally: Because on my profile, I didn't want to say I had kids, as I'm only 25. I figured it'd give me more options in the dating pool, more guys would write me.

Bob: WTF? We didn't meet from the dating pool a week ago. I didn't ask why you said that on your profile. I asked why didn't you tell Me, after we talked, met, etc?

Sally: Ya know, I don't like your attitude. You're bent out of shape about Nothing. They're not mine! Those rugrats are my parents'! They're my brother and sister, NOT my kids, by law!

Bob: Yeah, but, it's been a year -- you've referred to you never having kids and always wanted kids!

Sally: Yeah, I never really had them! My parents took them up for adoption real quick! And yeah, some day I DO want kids. I just said on my profile that I never had kids and I want some someday because it'd get me more messages from quality guys! Like you!

Bob: I can understand that, but why didn't you Tell ME, at least somewhere within the first 3 dates? Why continue this charade?

Sally: Because I wanted to say on my profile that I never had kids and wanted them someday because it makes me a better prospect!

Bob: Okay, I'm done. This is crazy. You're not answering my question.

Sally: OH! You're all upset now, huh? Fine! I guess your petty a$$ would be upset when I tell you I'm 33, not 25!

Bob: Holy sh!t! Yeah! Again -- we've been dating for a YEAR! We didn't just meet from online! You're just a liar!

Sally: See? You get upset about everything! I'm not lying! I'm an Emotional person. It's Emotion, not lying! And what about you? Mr. 5 foot 8? My sister's 5 foot 8, and you're a little shorter than she is!

Bob: I'm 5 foot 8, yeah, fine, in my shoes. Grab a tape measure. Oh, and which sister? The one that popped out of your vagina 3 years ago, or the "older" sister who's 31?

Sally: That's it, I'm through. You're a lying piece of sh!t, you rat bastard! Putting your height where you're not in your bare feet. Shame on you! I'm outta here! And by the way, I've been banging your cousin Rick. He's got something bigger than yours that rhymes with his name. And I don't feel guilty anymore! Buh-bye!

Well, if it's any consolation, you never came across as a "sharp cookie". And, you still aren't! Bright as a Xmas light, is our l'il HS!

I'm actually quite impressed: your brain-damaged H. Erectus screed makes SwedishChef456 look positively well-spoken and coherent. That's no mean feat.

How could you tell? SwedishChef456 always manages to take a dozen words to say what anyone else can say with two or three. He reminds me of Bobcat Goldthwaite's character Zed from "Police Academy 2".

Sweet Thundering Jeebus, do you *EVER* stop talking?!? You had *NOTHING* to contribute, and your entire message could have been summarized by "ditto", or "me too", yet you managed to take a whole lot of nothing, and turn it into a screen-and-a-half of noise. How do youdo that?!? :roll:

You're an idiot, who loses credibility day after day, dude. From LL2L's response, the gal gave him no reason why she was passively lying to Him after they met. It's not rambling. It's making the point. How could Halycon_skies know? How could you Not know I was disagreeing with you? Get some reading comprehension in -- it'll make reading others' posts a little easier. :) And I'm sorry I hurt your feelings with the long, fictional, humorous discussion between two people in my previous post. Don't cry though, man. Be tough! ;)

So, the answer, then, would be "no". So, I'm curious: why didn't you just *SAY* that, rather than spin it into a four-line 9incohetrent ramble? Do you get paid by the word?

The first requisite of being a Smart-Ass is to actually, you know, be smart.

Which disqualifies you, in spades. Stick to sharing your wisdom (*sknerk*) about gambling...

I never aimed to be a smart-ass; that’s your schtick---although I’m afraid you’re disqualified, too. Only the latter part of “smart-ass” is applicable to you. Now when we add the word, “hole”, it describes you perfectly.

So, the answer, then, would be "no".

In my previous post, I said "correct" to Halycon's assessment. Pretty simple there. Then in a few sentences I reiterated. And my huge long wordy post was making fun of the concept that LL2L's gal actually addressed his concern.

And before that I got right to the point from the outset. Before that I wasn't even rambling getting to that point, just making it clear for those who may want to pick things apart:

She said it was because less guys would write her online; she couldn't get the chance to meat them. Well, that's more understandable, but it was a A Year in an Established Relationship. That's fine if she said that on Date #1/#2/#3... but a year being BF/GF? No, that doesn't apply. So she actually Didn't tell him why she didn't tell him after they met.

She gave him an answer to something Different -- why she put a generational difference in age, in her profile (guys wouldn't write me; it'd be hard to nab a date). Not why she didn't tell him after they met, during the first handful of dates.

I'm flattered that you're attempting to imitate my style, even though you haven't a snowball's chance in Hell of actually being, you know, witty. Your "I know you are but what am I?" attempted juvenile put-down is actually quite grating.

Your "style", such as it is, is to show everyone your amazing lack of self-awareness at just how unfunny you are.

So, why couldn't you just leave it there? Instead, you subjected us to your contrived, convoluted and nebbish story about Bob and Sally. Outside of your, shall we say, "unique" world-view, no one speaks like that...

Yes, because nothing screams "witmaster supreme" like this old and unoriginal gem you pulled out of your unimaginative ass....


if you didn't want to be shown to be a dim-witted ass, you wouldn't have tried engaging me in a battle of wits less than half-armed


Spoiler alert for everyone - his next post will contain more boasting of being smart and funny. Let's see if this dopey motherf*cker will claim he's unpredictable, too.

Sadly, it appears some folks will dismiss someone over petty things.


Yes. In particular with OLD. People will often raise their expectation level when they have more potential options ( i.e. hundreds or thousands of profiles within a few clicks of a mouse ).

As for the subject....I did but he openly admitted he lied on the meet...it was pretty obvious.
For me the fact that he lied about being a "smoker" was worse....imo.

Because you didn't get it the first time. So I followed it with a few sentences re-summarizing. The post being Long was due to then giving a humorous example-conversation between a guy & a gal, showing the irrationality by the gal where giving a fake reason makes one seem silly. You didn't have to read it or be so "overwhelmed" if you finally understood leading up to it.
