I know some are hiding their age the reasons is I don't know. Me I don't lie about it actually I'm proud to be in my age now that I'm still alive and have a good health. How about you did you ever lied about your age?

Nope, not in real life nor here in mylot and other sites that I belong to. I provide what I think can be helpful for me, as much as possible I don't worry about my age either. The thing that mostly troubles me and are of my concern, are those members who uses a girl's avatar but the truth is they are MEN!LoL

Men generally do not. it is not required for them to tell a lie about their age. I always tell them not only the age, if they need the exact date of birth!! I know including my wife and other women tell a lot of lies about their age. The secret behind it is that they want send a message that they are young. The joke is: THE BEST 10 YEARS OF A GIRLS LIFE is 18-19 years. They would like to remain there for 10 years, though it is 2 years.!!

Hi lynboobsy11! I never hid my true age ever even though sometimes there are people who make a big fuss about it when they learn about my age. It makes me uncomfortable because they make me feel that I am ancient or a piece of antique. But then, I still maintain my honesty because I reach this age with so much grace (my hubby said that) and I think I am quite contented with who I am and what I am. Take care and have a nice day.

Sometimes, I tell the person asking that I'm this "younger" and not this "older". In short, I realy tell my age but with the word "younger" after it. :-)

I'm not very proud, but yes, when I was younger, I had a fake ID, and lied a lot about my age, to get into clubs, bars etc, as a lot of my friends were a few years older than me, and I didn't want to miss out on a night out with them. I got caught a few times, but never got into much trouble - I looked quite old for my age, and managed to get away with the excuse that I was going to be eighteen in a couple of days, and got the ID a little too early.

No, I dont lie about my age. When people ask me how old I am I just tell them the truth or I just say Im around 20. As much as I want to lie about my age because I feel that Im old already, I still tell the truth.

I have not yet but don't know if I will have to do so anytime in future, but I don't see the reason though. I found someone here and also on another site, a girl orlady, I don't know as all are lies and she told once in a discussion she is married with child and once she is a college girl and waiting for the marry with her long term boy friend, so its all like false information of age and everything but why? I don't get it dear.

No, I've never lied about my age. I don't feel comfortable lying about anything. Most times it makes me feel separated from my friends. If I have to lie, then the person must not be a good enough friend. So, I try to avoid lying whenever possible. As you said, I am proud to be my current age, as well. I have lived through many trials and heart aches and I would not give up one for a million dollars. Each struggle and year made me the person that I am today. And, each hurdle that I surpassed made me more capable of being a better person and mother. If not for my history then I would not be the person I am today. I can only hope that I keep this enlightened attitude once the bloom of youth and beauty begin to fade in my early forties or fifties. Then we will see how often I tell the whole truth about my age. Perhaps by then, I won't see it so much as a lie, but a convenient truth.

I don't lie about my age especially if someone ask me personally and for documents purposes. Sometimes I do lie about it when I'm chatting to a stranger, actually it's not only my age I lie about sometimes.
