wat if she lied about age....... do you continue anyway?Page 21 of 21    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21)
Age different is not an issue for me but the honesty. What else that she will lie to gain her own benefit. A red flag for me. If you can overcome the issue either she is older or she is not being honesty, no one can make decision for you. Just remember that you have to be comfortable with your own decision.

Thats not really much of an age difference. But its the fact she lied to you about it.

If you are in love what does it matter. Okay she has confessed to you about her age, there is so much prejudice against ageing women that I dont really blame her. Has she changed because she told you the truth? Love is about acceptance and tolerance. Why you want to marry at your age, is beyond me, anyway.

Geeze,.. look, I tell everyone here,. I lied about my age,..if you don't like it,. sue me, and quit frikkin talkin' to me..Now,. if it's THAT much of an issue for you,..Fine,. go away, & let her find someone who likes her for her,. women have been lying about their ages FOR-EVER! umm GET OVER it,. My Mom (who was actually my Grandmother... Mom ditched me when I was a month old),. God rest her soul was 39 till she died @ 67 .. So..I say again.. get frikkin' over it.. if you're that shallow that a few years is a deal breaker,. I believe the other person is better off if you DO leave.
And No,. it's none of your business just how much I lied about MY age either,.. now,. if I was Dating someone and it got serious I'd have to come clean.. till then.. it's NOBODY's business.. My photos are current,. what you see is what you get,. no promises oon anything, and I have no idea where My "expires by XX/XX/XXXX Date is located at,. so,. I guess I'm still pretty fresh,.Now,. leave me be,.. I'm outta here.. >grabs onto wheeled walker & moseys out the door<........

YEP. So true .. the sad part of this whole debate is that a woman feels the need to lie at all! If our society accepted aging women the way they do aging men, there would be no need for anyone to shave a few years off of their age. If these same men met a woman in real life where age isn't announced .. they wouldn't care. Yet on line, they limit their search for women 'under a certain age'.

To get rid of this problem, society needs to rid itself of the stigma of aging.

LOL..yep. My Mom just turned 84..but don't tell anyone, to the world she's 39. HAHA...

For some of us age is really important. Why? I have no idea - it just is.

You have already made the age thing an issue....maybe she lied because she liked you and in the beginning you madae it clear that you were age specific. What else concerns you? Is this going to be the straw that breaks the camels back?

In my humble opinion I find that a woman over 45 often matches better with a younger man. When I was younger I could not tolerate guys my own age - I always seemed to date up (at least a few yrs). Now at over 50 it is a challenge finding a guy in this age group that:
-Doesnot want just eye candy
-Who can keep up (I'm not dead yet!)
- Only want you for sex and maid skills (yawning - ho hum)

I admit to having that age issue thing -BUT I'll be damn if I'm going to let the potential of a great relationship go because of age (older or younger).

Sounds like you want it to be a deal breaker - - - I hope you can get past it if it is the only issue you have with her (I'm not saying she is right or that you are wrong). I'm saying you seem to love each other and this is an issue you both will have to work through.

The only time I'd really tolerate lies is prior to meeting from online, once we meet face to face any lies I figure out I'd have a problem. My perspective is if the person is lying about one thing, what else are they lying to me about? If I was the OP I would consider if the age bothered me, if not I would focus on the lying as a red flag. Certainly much communication is needed.
