Age is wrong! Can't change it!Page 1 of 1    
Have you folk noticed how many women make a mistake in their age when they create their profile? Typically it is exactly 10/20 years younger. To solve the problem (when it is obvious that they're older), they typically write something like:

Age is 52 not 42! Can't change it. Sorry.

Do you folk believe this shite? xD

Statistics say the gender most likely to falsify their age is male.

Statistics go further and suggest that the reason why emotionally immature male teens pretend to be older than they are is that they really are that ridiculously puerile and what's required to prevent this sort of thing is a severe scolding by their mammy.

Keep on voting to delete is what I say!

Well, I was looking at 42 year olds but there's still a lot of 52 yr olds amongst them apparently, hence this blog. Crazy world we live in, woman.

OP, a lot of men do this as well.

You probably don't look at men's profiles and therefore don't see it. We girls do. I find it a real put off.

However, some young guys push their age up to find older women. Haven't seen young girls do that (yet) to find older men.

Hi Polly. Welcome back.
true... I thought of doing that myself too but I haven't this far. No, young women don't really go for old men (unless they're rich) ... and for good reason prolly. :/

Easily resolved: delete their account and create a new one with their correct age and thus show up in the right age searches.

Is this crap still here?

We need a plumber....the toilet's not flushing!

Why do profiles purportedly belonging to the stronger, more intelligent and more logical sex always read as if a brain dead moron wrote it?
